The propagation was way down from 2016 when I made nearly 900Qs on 15mb. There was a short opening to NA on late Saturday UTC and EU on Sunday, but the paths were limited. The highlight toward NA was working with K9CT via skewed path (via KH6). I tried many times hoping that K2SSS or NR4M would be printable via that path, but no chance. I wish that U.S. stations located to the east of Rocky Mountains to point to VK/ZL to listen for JAs when they have no direct path. This may be the only chance to work JAs on 15mb in the years to come when the solar cycle is near its bottom. The highlight toward EU was working with 2 Zone 14s, namely DG1VL and OZ7AM during a very short window over the polar path. Northern Europe was very difficult and even the usually booming SN7Q was not printable this time. Thank you all who put me in their log. See you in WW SSB/CW. Best 73/88, Icko, JA1BPA
