A 30-minute, but strong Es opening yesterday brought 70 loggings from Denmark and Sweden. The opening was extremely narrow, comprising all heard stations within an 11 degrees bearing. Distances varied between 1065 and 1872 km.
I used a very modest 3-element FM antenna placed in the attic, connected to an SDRPlay RSP1A running at 8 MHz (6 MHz or so effective). I used SDR Console to decode and record IQ files to an external SSD for later playback.
