FM E-skip opening 7/6/14. 2 new logs. (Updated)

media-fmesUPDATED: Sporadic E returned at 7:47 p.m. on 92.7 FM and remained in FM until 8:16 p.m.  It, once again, returned between 8:53 and 9:04 p.m. or 40 minutes cumulative for the later opening (at least 225 minutes for the entire day) with a MUF of 99.7 FM.  As with the original opening today, noted further below, most FM signals in the later opening were short, brief and devoid of any IDs.  Stations heard during the second FM E-skip opening on July 6 is below.

The original post describing the earlier July 6, 2014 opening is below:

I missed most of a good FM Es opening on July 6.  Based on unattended recordings on 92.7 and 95.7 FM, skip appeared on 92.7 at 9:33 a.m.  It was weak and occasional, until the 10 a.m. hour when it hit the opening’s MUF of 106.1.  During an extended lull in the opening, I decided to take a nap and missed all but the last few minutes of the later part of the opening.  Unfortunately, most signals received today had fade-outs just as station identification aired.  The skip left FM at 1:50 p.m., being in FM for at least 185 cumulative minutes.  My DX Log and Audio Files pages have been updated to reflect the information below.
