Greetings and best wishes to TPers

Heard EA3VY , Jose, very early on 160 (2200 about) so decided to watch 
the band. Signals became legible at about 0430 and I wrked first QSO @ 
0448. The band then seemed to open in leaps and bounds till there was 
activity all up and down(IK,SV,G,LY,9A,F8,SM,GM,and others. After 
putting a bunch in the log I thought "This could be  awesome at EU 
sunrise!" but then the bottom fell out. At around 0615Z I noticed 
signals that were peaking moments before had become weaker. W0FLS was 
hammering spots and wrking people I could no longer hear! I heard him 
wrk EA3VY @0642Z and give Jose 599-I could not hear a peep on any 
antenna. Then I slid up to 1845 and listened to W8JI wrk EU on SSB and 
never hrd any  station he worked!! (Of course Tom's station is in 
another world as far as listening goes!!!)

Very interesting condx. I wonder what others experienced?
