Long time ago

I was writing about ‘best Es ever’ last week. But then I remembered that in the old days we had a few big openings too.
Digging out my logs I found some nice Es on 2M openings in 1989.  Also in the top of the suncycle!
So sun-radiation destroys MUF but sometimes there are huge clouds with high MUF and staying long.
Lots of Ukraine and Eastern Europe and UL7AAX (Kazachstan) as odx. I was just seconds behind PA3CEE who scored the first PA-UN.

Note the old locators! (Much better)

I hope the pictures are readable, click to enlarge.
