Mel, sometimes like you say sleep is more important and don't blame you.

better band conditions but again different locations or areas have
different propagation or working conditions I would guess.

Spain or Italy:
F4ESO France (NE) Ham Sous Varsberg
Then yes as you stated more south than you:
OK1JME Czech Republic - Central
F4BKV France (SW) PORT D'ENVAUX
and many like you say in:
Portugal, Spain, Italy, Croatia
Thanks Mel for your report and post but I just was posting my report
for that day because both myself and the other spotters are seeing the
band in better shape and wanted to let others know...again your area
might be different and I understand that. I do know a month ago or 2
months ago I never heard a UK station and only from time to time would
have contacts in souther EU but again just an observation of my
reports from here.
