August 08. 2003 - Finally a sign of life after 12 days of
After July 26th Sporadic E was in a very bad shape. Even 50
MHz was almost dead for many days - perhaps due to the
high level of geomagnetic disturbance by two very big coronal
holes? I don't know but today suddenly MUF was rising very
very fast in the early morning above western Ukraine causing a
small and spotty 'MS-like' 144 Es from 06:37 UT until 07:50 UT.
Openings were very short and the activity was very low too.
Seems that most OM's a tired of Es this year :-).
Involved DXCC: UA3, UB5, I, 9A, S5, HA, OK, DL
