Es opening 5/26/13. 2 new logs. (updated)

2013-post-esFM Es came in twice on May 26.  The first opening, based on unattended recordings on 97.5 FM, came in between 8:12 and 8:57 a.m., bringing in ZNL from the Bahamas and new log CMEI from Cuba, IDed with the help of ‘Rob in SC’ on the TV/FM Skip Log.  At 6:15 p.m., Es returned into the midwest and FL, possibly from two Es clouds.  The second opening seemed promising and had several weak, but sustained signals with an MUF of 97.5 FM, bringing in new log WGLT.  As seen in many other openings, as I was getting weak Es, DXers to the northeast of me were enjoying a sustained 107.9 MUF opening.  The later Es opening fell out of FM at 7:28 p.m., for a total of 73 minutes.
