UPDATED: The first E-skip of 2012 was received on May 31 in Northern Virginia in three separate, brief openings throughout the day. I was away from the radio for the first opening into South Dakota at 10:27 a.m., as well as another opening into Nova Scotia at 5:40 p.m. My radios were set to 89.9 FM and 96.7 FM, respectively, to record. Both openings seemed to be brief, and nothing was received on 96.7 FM. I was able to fully-DX the third opening, which started 8:40 p.m. into Arkansas, and it shifted into Missouri and western Illinois before dying out at 9:14 p.m. MUF of the third opening was 100.5 FM, but signals were weak and spotty overall.
