Weak opening to South America - 12th Apr 2021

The 28 MHz band was pretty quiet for most of the day and only really came to live around 20:00 UTC when there was an opening to South America.

F2 propagation or Trans-Equatorial Propagation (TEP)???

South America is a poor direction for me and I was only hearing the signals coming in at a high enough angle to clear my local hill.
