Not heard much yet. One of the locals said they heard some UK stations that were very low. Hopefully, the band will pick up. I'm off today and it would be nice to have less US traffic. Just came down from 12M afetr working SM4OTI - Sweden on 24.891 CW. Pretty big signal here. I just checked 28.400 and heard nothing after throwing out a CQ. Big signal from Ireland on 27.385 @13:10, also hear a station in England.

Worked Ireland #234 on 27.375 @ 13.20. It was very low though. 13:45 - Just heard another Ireland station call CQ on CH38 with a QSY to 27.415, thought I could escape some of the below 40 op's and work it. Negative contact.
