Hi Mike ,
Have seen tropospheric bending may times over the years. This was different.
Worked 2 meters for years in the 1960's
Need to keep an open mind.

I think what you experienced on channel 13 was a coincidence.
Tropospheric VHF and UHF band openings have nothing to do with any kind of
enhanced 160m conditions. Tropospheric bending occurs when a cold air mass
happens to be beneath much warmer air aloft. The reflection occurs where
the two layers meet because of the difference in energy levels.
