July 10. - Saturday evening aint no good for Es...
...cause activity is always low. MUF reached high levels in the morning and dropped around noon but came back in the afternoon reaching almost 144 from LA to 9A and S5 while BC from whole Europe was audible im GM. That cloud was splitted into 2 pieces, one moving slowly southwest and at app. 1850 144 was open until 20:10 UT. Activity was poor and the Es was very spotty.

RIG: 5el 2m high and 100W, vy bad take off
Never say never!!! MUF was quite high in the evening, but I did not expect ES on 144, I was realy to lazy for drivin' to the QTH ;-) I came in from gardening and saw G was working Italy, a few min later I hrd EA1BFZ(IN81) followed by EB4FXD(IM78), he was 57 in QSO and 59+ after. Here at home I have only a 5el at a 2m mast in the garden down in the valley of Dresden and take off is shieled in all directions by buildings. Seems the reflection point was vy small since I don't hrd any locals or even the big guns frm JO50. Usually I can't break the ES pile up from here, but the pettishly lady ES was friendly to me ;-) Interesting that I don't seen any short skip-spot of 6m at the midpoint , even EA-BC was hrd by DH0GHU.

The only one heard here in JO50ik, I'm not sure if the QSO was completed, because he faded out very fast and maybe didn't rxed his report. Station was audible for less than a minute. Rig: 5W, 7ele DK7ZB-Yagi

Had been monitoring BC for some time with I sigs up to 100mhz then suddenly 2m opened with a big signal.Only the 1 IS0 heard.

Didn't work any stations, most were not audible here. I did hear SP6GZZ in JO80 briefly, very short skip and according to your map, a little way off the main Es cloud.

Amp tripped out (storm bugs grr) just before es in the evening started, is0gqx was s9qsb for a while but I could not raise more than a few watts hi. Got the amp going eventually but it was over for me then. MUF was still vri high and I worked s53j and s51mq via fai qtf 85. 73 de Dave

Sometimes being on the edge can be an advantage! My QSO with 9H1AW at 2310km is right on the edge of the geometrical possibilities of 'single-hop' Es. Although we exchanged 59 reports, in my case based on his initial strength, for most of the QSO Alan was only just readable.
