Saturday 9.6.2012: Nice opening in the evening !

Nothing in the morning except hard meteors hitting ionosphere. A lot of signals around Europe, like Radio Gamma Savignano (Italy) 91.1 - Horizont (Bulgaria) 88.1 -  Berlin 88.8 - RTL 88.9 etc.

In the afternoon we were very close to big opening. Ion-clouds were 200-300 km too south below Slovakia!!
To Utö-location we need ion-clouds over Ukraina, Poland, mid-Germany or Denmark to get something.

In the evening we got interesting opening starting slowly at1630utc. At first very short but strong skips to Greece, Bulgaria and Romania on lower band. Especially it was very interesting to hunt Greek-ones because tropo was at low level and frequencies were open.
At 1800utc the band was full of South Italians, Bari, Foggia, Lecce etc. It seems no new stations were digged out from Italy altough many local stations were id'ed.
