For the last 36 hours I have been using WSPR on 6m to check for openings when busy with other things. I am surprised how often CN8LI (2171km) and I exchange spots even though I have only been running 500mW into the vertical V2000 antenna. I assume this is Es, but the path seems too consistently open for Es somehow.

I am disappointed more stations in the USA and Canada are not active on 6m WSPR: with a good number of stations both sides of "the pond" active, it would be an excellent way to spot those fleeting multi-hop Es openings at any time of the day or night.
