0810 10/07/14  G4IDR:  OK GB3NGI bcn is up on tropo +10dB at 350km away but that is more normal morning enhancement for me
0808 10/07/14  G4IDR:  VC1T I would suggest if you have no JT65B decodes or RX reports by 12.00UTC today please go to FSK441 min 12.30 to 15.30 as I think that this is the peak MS + ES/tropo time BUT main mode is first MS
