3B8DB 50.110 new dxcc after long time

3B8CF  just 2 days later the 2nd Mauritian active in the 6m log!
woow never would imagine that.

A92IO was worked first time in PA   by PA2M  congrats the best possible 4m DX  
Only 200km south  of JO33hg  but this make a big difference in the ES propagation at 6 4 and 2m always.

Very nice to hear Taher  from Mauritius  a new DXCC
The  first TEP (+ES) signal at 6m here and possible also the best since Maritius was never heard.

My last new DXCC was 
13-jul-1119:49SV/aSV2ASP/AMount Athos

QSB down from 559 to 519  but QSO just before the signal faded complete.
You never know if this was the only occasion for 3B8or more openings will happen. That makes it exciting. Not being in South-EU where TEP is a common evening propagation during many months in the season. We have to be there at right time May to June to catch one of the rare openings where a new DXCC might be in reach.
Like TJ  never heard here. …

10M long path again

Alweer  rond middernacht VK op 10m
De DX 18035  voor  CT1JTQ    klopt dus niet     VK via LP is vanuit CT  korter
Vanuit CT EA is LP normaal. zelfs op 50MHz   hier in het noorden  is LP  haast onmogelijk op 6m
Is de laatse 3 Zonne cycli maxima niet mogelijk gebleken. Behalve de KH6 maar die was alleen in zuid nederland te werken.
