FM Es opening 6/13/17 into AR, NE, KS, MN, WI. 4 new FM logs

The weak, peekaboo “here one second, gone the next” Sporadic E that I’ve seen so far in the 2017 season continued on June 13.  At about 4:00 PM, I found signals from Arkansas and Kansas coming into Northern Virginia.  Although I had to do some non radio-related things during the opening, I found incoming signals from Minnesota and Nebraska before the opening died at about 5:17 PM, roughly 10 minutes of cumulative skip with a MUF of 105.3 FM.  Interestingly, much like the May 28, 2017 opening, I managed to log 4 new stations–something that is usually very difficult to achieve with weak and short openings, which usually only yield relogs.  My Audio page has been updated with the new clips below.
