29/6 & 30/6 – completing June

Within one week there was no sign of Sporadic E in Central Finland, but still in the end of second “summer” month we got two nice openings. First one to Balkan and Italy (Foggia for the first time in my earphones). Later very common direction: Bavaria/Bohemia/Austria. Another night offered a nice surprise: short skip to Northern Germany and the Netherlands – and very short to Denmark! In the very beginning I heard Danish too, while my colleagues JJH and JSU were receiving Sveriges Radio from Malmö and Hörby! However I identified the first two Danish stations just in the end of conditions. Now, thinking about it later, it is obvious that several musical stations on lower band must have been Danish aswell, because the German stations on the lower band are mostly “talk radios”, as we know. Radio ABC from Randers – already QSLed – is my new unrecord – shortest ES skip 1084 km! Visually it looked like this (followed by the written log):

Tune in June

As a compilation of this June, I wouldn’t say this was the best June ever, but maybe the second best. I still remember June 2010 with fantastic whole day conditions in the beginning of month followed by several big days. But to be honest, May and July of 2010 were offering nothing to remember. From this point of view season 2013 could be nominated maybe one of the best summers ever,  IF the conditions will continue similar in July. We got awaited classical openings to Germany and Italy, but also some openings to interesting new “black” areas that were totally new for me. From the beginning of August till the mid September I’ll be outside Finland, so the autumn doesn’t make the difference.

Highlights in June 2013 – Top4

1) Double hops to Eastern Mediterranean 17/6/2013

2) Short skip to Denmark 30/6/2013 (last time heard by me in 14/6/2006)

3) Lot of private stations from France (normally TDF – nothing more). This could have something to do with cutted trees: http://www.fmdx.tk/muodonmuutos/

4) Nice stabile signals on lower band from Brasov – new city for me! (19/6/2013)

For our Finnish speaking readers (and those who like to use Google Translate) I would consider the great compilation made by JVA from Oulu, halfway to Lapland:
