Es opening 6/1/13. 4 new logs. (updated)

2013-post-esJune 1 proved to be a very strong day for E-skip in Virginia, providing top-of-the-band reception for the first time this year.  The opening started at 11:26 a.m. with 92.9 KOSP coming in with signals from MO and OK following it.  A weaker cloud into MS formed soon afterward.  Both clouds died out 34 minutes later with an MUF of 102.5 FM.  At 5:36 p.m., FM Es returned abruptly without warning, bringing in signals from FL and the TX/LA/MS areas with a second cloud into the upper midwest.  The later opening had strong, sustained signals up to its MUF of 107.5 MHz, something that has not been seen much to date this year.  Although the opening was strong, only one local station was overpowered.  RDS and IBOC decodes were also sparse due to rapidly changing signals.  The Es died out at 8:08 p.m., or 152 minutes, bringing the day’s skip totals to 186 minutes.
