There was a modest opening via F2 propagation on 28 MHz on Wednesday the 31st of March 2021 with Israel, South Africa, Mauritius in the Indian Ocean, Brazil & Uruguay.
Sometimes with FT8, my PC is decoding signals that I can't hear but some of these were very audible. I checked the beacon band and I heard the ZS6WAB beacon on 28.2048 MHz at about 419.
The solar flux was up to 80 today, a jump of 4 on yesterday.
There also seemed to be a weak opening to Europe with some UK stations making it through on what seemed like weak short skip.
One signal of interest was that of EI2CN who was -6dB even though he is 250kms distant. I noticed that BBC4 radio was coming in from Wales on 104.9 MHz earlier this morning so there was some tropo about. Was there tropo on 28 MHz as well? It seems like it.
