Some nice 70MHz Es today – mostly to the south east. Around lunchtime I worked IK0SMG (JN61) and IK5YJY (JN53). Later on, just before 1600z I was listening to a weak signal on 70.200 – I think an I4 which I was struggling to copy. Mark, CT1FJC heard me and called me at great strength. Really delighted to work Mark on a new band! Following that, Mark faded out and I was able to work another two Italian stations IZ5EME (JN52) and I0DLP (JN61). Conditions when I worked I0DLP were just perfect – he was a huge signal and very easy to work.
