UKSMG 6m Summer contest

   UKSMG 50MHz Summer contest This Saturday 13Z   to Sunday 13Z  was the UKSMG 6m Summer contest. Only by watching the calendar we know it must be summer. The heating was on and we needed some extra light. Gray dark skies outside. After last weeks heath wave it cooled down to 12C.  Sunday morning signals in the 50MHz band Most  EU Russia East Southeast CW  some USB mode   UR UT UX YO SV LZ  YU weak 9A No Italians!  Nothing from North  North East no EA not even EA8 heard And some direct signals ON DL G Best DX heard A92GE in CW long CQ 559  but could not copy me running  ACOM1000 power. Not enough to be heard   a DL 200km S-E  had no problem,   guess a higher class PA .. Since the spectacular 144MHz ES with a half......  QSO 4X/OM2IB  KM75JC 3256km All ES openings moved to the normal position south all signals gone the signals die out just south of JO33HG. THe UKSMG 6m summer contest is thé opportunity  for classic CW USB mode QSO This contest does not allow FT8. I was expecting to meet
