July 02. - Suddenly...
MUF was not really spectacular today but f0Es measured in Rome was up to almost 12 MHz at 11.00 UT. Even on 50 MHz activity was very low until the early afternoon when suddenly the former "Rome cloud" was moving west and MUF made a sudden jump to 144 MHz at 12.40 UT. First sigs on 144 from 9H1 to F and later 7X0AD reached the band again working some DL's and PA's while EI and G made I8, IT9, IS0. EA6 was into 9A and HA when EA2,4,5 and 7 cracked the 144 border into DL, OK, OM and SP. LZ heard EA3 briefly. Opening was spotty and sigs faint sometimes. Sysop missed the opening cause I was pretty tired from a long football night before with friends from SV and felt asleep in the shack....shame.
Another short opening occured from 18:35 until app. 19:00 UT when EA9 and EA7 were strong in PA and DL and CT to OK.

Very surprised about ES. the 50Mhz was dead. After the dx spots about ES i searched on 144.300 for stations. Nothing to hear, but on 13:29 there was 7X0AD from jm16jr on 144.310 with 59+ for 10 seconds, no other Stations were heard.
73 es hope for better ES in JN49
