The last of the Spanish tropo. Still some reasonable signals but a little weaker after midnight, then quite a lot weaker by dawn. Most of the signals from the previous evening were hanging on, but still no Portugal.a

The "++" in the log are my own references for personal firsts.

Maximum distance received was from the Moaña transmitter at 1379 km.

Good DX!
