oooowwww very bad propagation this weekend on the low bands

On 500kHz   only 1 USA report from EU ;-)

2011-02-27 05:18 WD2XSH/7  0.495969  -27  0  EM31js  20  PA0O  JO33hg  7830  39

Only 1  decode  against 16 previous nights
160m yesterday evening and night   not a single DX over 3000!
much later  some USA decodes
I have never seen such poor propagation since i have been on with WSPR
80m the same
in the top DX list   no EU  present  no VK to EU 

One time i tried to make a sort of DX-index for JO33
I select 100 records descending on distance over 24hours  and  count  the DX>4000
Most time my Index is well above 50  But now it was zero on 160 and 80m until long after  midnight very unusual.  

2011-02-27 06:08  PA0O  3.594140  -16  0  JO33hg  5  WB8HWF  EN80sc  6497 was the best  DX  decoded   normally   VK6  or VK7DIK  
 the best DX decode  in EU was W to south DL
The other EU decodes in the list are erroneous.
The best band was 28MHz  with VK6TQ and VK6GOS 
15m also poor
The conclusion is that we where lucky last 2 weekend  it could have been much…
