June 30. 2003 - Sporadic 'E' is dead - Welcome Usual 'E' | Comments/reports/log-sheets/audios to DK5YA

What the hell is Sporadic 'E'? Must be some ancient mode from former times - in 2003 we proudly present Usual 'E'....
Yes, another day on 144 in Europe #26, the best season for many many years. MUF was not quite high most of the day even that 50 MHz was in a good shape. Again in the late afternoon MUF was almost exploding, this time above the north-african coast. And Jannis, SV3CYM was on as usual on 300 and made EA9 and a bunch auf EA7 while CT was into 9H1, IT9 and I5. Later EA5 made 9H1 too and Nacho, EA1AK/7 had luck with SV9,  2.794 Km! At 17:29 UT the second cloud in the east reached 144 MHz, again a nice opening for Genadij, RZ6BU and the boys from UT5 to I, 9A, S5 and YU. This one lasted until 17:54 UT, a short one. From 16:00 UT until 16:45 BC from TA and SV was booming in DL, nil so far on 144.
Involved DXCC: EA, EA9, CT, I, IT9, 9H1, SV, SV9, 9A, S5, UT, UA6

Today we have had two hours of ES, but few QSO because few people was active... At 16:28 UTC I heard very weak IW9GSC. Last station heard was 9H1ET at 18:30. Four countries worked 9H, I, IT9 and SV9, most with very good signals and no QSB. Heard also SV3CYM very weak, but not able to get in.
And continued hearing same stations until 18:30
