FM E-Skip Opening 6/23/15 into FL, IA, IL, KS, LA, MO, OK, NE, SD and TX. 6 new logs.

post-fmesSporadic E was very active in Northern Virginia for most of the afternoon on June 23.  Based on unattended recordings on 97.7 and 101.9 FM, FM Es first appeared at about 2:15 PM and continued off and on, save for a dip during most of the 6 p.m. hour, until 8:16 p.m., for a cumulative 231 minutes in FM.  I, unfortunately, was only able to DX the last hour or so of the opening due to work, but I did log a few new stations via the unattended recordings.

In terms of locations covered during this opening, it seemed to be across the entire midwest with signals from multiple states being received all at once. At times, signals were 2-3 stations deep at once, making identification difficult.  For the most part, signals were weak and sparingly.  The opening had a MUF of 106.9 FM.
