50 MHz Sporadic E season

Locator squares worked (yellow) and confirmed (orange) on 50 MHz in 2017
On May 30, 2017 we had one of the best Es openings on 50 MHz and 70 MHz. I spent a few hours on 50 MHz using JT65 and managed to log a few new locator squares for VUCC. A few were confirmed within the day using the ARRL LoTW system: KN37 (YO8RSL), KN99 (UR0MC) and JO11 (ON5UN).


I also managed to have a couple of test QSOs in MSK144, the new mode best suited for MS contacts.
