Some very fleeting Es today. There wasn't a lot of it and it was largely too weak for RDS. DX Maps placed the Es cloud over Northern Spain, slightly inland, so I was suprised to be receiving any of this.

On a positive note, Morocco and Portugal brings my total number of countries received this season to 30: ALB ALG AUT BIH BLR BUL CZE D E EST F FIN GRC HNG HRV I LTU LVA MDA MNE MRC POL POR ROU RUS SRB SVK SVN TUN UKR

Good DX!
