Challenging propagation this year as mentioned by so many others. However, some
interesting opening on 10 and 15 meters in the middle of the night.

Thank you to all great Scandinavian operators who gladly agreed to QSY from
other bands to try those seemingly impossible openings in the dark. Actually
more than 90% of those QSO attempts became successful due to patience on both
sides. QSB extremely heavy with signals going from readable with S9 strengths
to absolutely unreadable in the same short transmission.

Hope that the poor propagation on 20 meters compared to Europeans in the south
(Mediterranean area) can be compensated to some extent by more of those Tropo
contacts on 10 meters (800 - 1700 km from My Moscow location).

Great fun despite challenge and will be looking forward to final results!

PS  Thanks all 5 band contacts with Scandinavians. That is great fun to
accomplish from this Moscow location
