Very strange conditions tonight. Signals faded in early, and kept improving until about 2000, then started to fade completely. By 2100 (local sunset), 48 m was almost completely dead here, the same as in Europe! Very unusual.
Despite the variable conditions, I was amazed to hear 4 new stations, Readymix, Luxemburg, Klabautermann and Zomerzon! Great signals form Boomi and Undercover, as always.
