Crazy conditions over the last 72 hours.2 divisions until past midnight and as you say SangueG and Skipmaster the sporadic E season has certainly started with a bang.I sat in Sainsbury’s Car park while the family shopped and worked 1,34 and 35 divisions last night and all 5/9+10 both ways.
And a bank holiday weekend too,let’s see how far I can get heard from Bognor Regis…

P.S wait until you hear what our very own CT2290 (Mr Golden Balls..lol) has been QSO’ing

Have a great weekend everyone and 73.
Cheers Tom

Oi! 

What's with this Golden Balls stuff?
I only had a quick, no brief, no short contact with Andy 9TC02 Newfoundland, Canada 🍁
No amp. No power mic. 

Nah nah na na nah 🤪

Have a good weekend all

I am copying from an other post (not bother just registed, searching etc to write the same again)

Corfu Greece some reports 4/11/22 till 11/11/22 all day long (till sun go down) the UK band was full down here ... i have heard with it many transmissions (even 2&3 persons chatting at a channel) in many cases even with the Eurosonic portable antenna stock

Channels 1,3,6,16,35 some kind of church with music or speaking religious (& also normal chat at different times)
Channel 9 i did catch some one speaking saying breaking news & talk for some time like info.
Strongest signals some i do remember (appearing every day almost same voices) 14, 19 (too many there) 22, 25, 34, 35, 38, 40 ... one heard saying Sheffield , one Wolverhampton
Thanks
ΕDIT apologies just noticed this is at ssb section, my report was for the normal FM UK Band

Conditions good here in Division 2 also. I use ClusterDX map to see real time QSOs. Been working FT-8 27.245 and ROS on 27.635. Lots of good contacts.

Many Thanks moving my post ... Thanks all members reporting so we can get an idea

Here some catches from UK to Corfu for just an idea in real (are my videos, added few ssb - not supported - once they appeared, so different to get a real clue) ...
The first indoor with a vhf dipole (originally for fm 75cm each side, cut down to 60cm each was using it listening the air band)
ch22 Russian lady
ch37 seems Dutch or German
ch1,4,6,16,35 some kind of religious




The 2nd is outdoor with eurosonic stock antenna but out there seems a lot of noise from next freqs in use, but because i am to the correct band Hertz does not seems to effect a lot ...
ch22 a lady, it can be Russian (maybe from UK ? i did catch in  the past Russian lady speaking there
ch13 French



Last days here is bad in general across all the CB Band range

Many Thanks, i did gave a call before i got my qsl call sign, it did reach but it did not last ...

First at ch20 was 2 of them heard clear chatting between them, i gave a call break greece is calling & the other person said greece did you heard that? ..
Then few days ago, at channel 25 i gave one more call, break break greece is calling while was 2-3 at the same channel, i heard one asking for qsl and then location Sheffield & then greece call to greece please come back, then after i heard the other UK person saying to him i don't think he can reach but did not add this to the video ... few minutes later all lost ... below a small part just for the true

This was with dipole cut at 60cm each side, 15m rg58 & the eurosonic with just 4 watts but for sure does not give 4 volts watts out unless i feed it with 14-15V ... plus the not right antenna for any signal loss ... plus from home i got higher mountain on the way to UK

I know was not the right antenna (it seems did ok if bear in mind unit gives around 3 watts, but can not kept my self not press that TX button to test, till to short all out )... By end of this month will get a base CB antenna for home & also an EU unit, yes in the plan is a bigger rubber antenna .. apart that if i notice again any good propagation will go up hill with its stock antenna & see how will go
