PSK reporter compared to WSPR 24 hour

PSK reporter does not always add WSPR mode or other modes it seems

WSPR 50MHz still alive besides FT8

DAC 144MHz:
heard  LA1T  cw 144.317  559
heard SK7MW    57
heard SM7CY     57
the 10W XVTR in the K3 was not enough for 2-way

woow  4739 km tropo duct 144MHz
2018-08-05 16:40 D4C 144.4629 TR io86ke hk76mv in/out 4739 DXC GM4ZJI IO86KE


4 August 6m was this the biggest "es" opening 2018?

weeks of tropical temperatures   30C+
and today again very sunny it cooled down a bit yesterday
Strange thing is in the evening no extra tropo propagations like we had over a month ago

not copied LA8VHF  144.480  or LA1UHG 1296.860 last month
when i check all VHF UHF beacons are normal and no tropo dx was reported in N-W EU

 6m keeps on going especially 50.313 is buzzing

   in good old  CW  only 4 DX QSO   against 100+ in FT8





HK3W  ODX last night    2nd night in a row that 6m was wide open



My antenna   7 ele 9m boom 21m a.g. and location is not bad  low noise  except to north were Solar Edge ads  10 15 dB noise 
 clearly there are  HAM's with stacked antenna's  at better location with no neighbors.
Early evening saw DL and SP massif calling W KP4 HI  and G to HK3W
here nowhere land , I grumbled a bit about that on KST and .. voila sudden the W  KP4 HI popped up .  Grumbling always triggered DX ..

50MHz 3 August

very long opening  FG8OJ  and WP4G  almost continue over 12 hours  around midnight 6m was more like 20m
