great tropo on 2 Meter

Every year around this time there is a huge high pressure area developing. No wind, fog (convection-type) and inversions. Working as pipes: either you are in the pipe or not.

Yesterday 10-11 we had such an event.
Heard G4SWX working into OH, UA1 and ES early in the evening. Up to 2000 km! And here…nil.

But later in the evening the pipe came down into JO33 and signals were picking up:
OH1ND, SM4GGC, OH2K, RA1AC(KP50!), OH5LK (new #) and ES3RF were logged.

Now closing the station, of to Ecuador  for business.
