Sporadic-E action

The screengrab below, from WSPR at 0815 this morning, shows just how selective Sporadic-E propagation can be. For a change, G4ILO is hearing and being heard by all the European stations while those in the south of England aren't getting anything.

Look, too, at all those lines going off the top of the map to OY1OF. I wish I could understand the propagation. It appears that if you like the 10m band, the best place to live is the Faroe Islands!

Hello Julian, I've switched off the radio today for a change. Most of the time sporadic e appears then (murphy's law) ;-) Not bad. I'll leave the radio off I think so others can enjoy the propagation. 73, Bas

Just realized from the map, that I had mistyped my locator (JN27 instead of JN37)
Sorry for the stupid mistake, all is fixed now
