UPDATE 1700z: So far, only European Es on 10m today. I shall keep looking, but chances of South America or further, are now reducing.
UPDATE 1745z: Still just EU Es on 10m WSPR. Mainly, but not totally, in direction of Spain.
UPDATE 1830z: Sometime between 1736z and a few minutes ago my WSPR program just stopped working. I have reset the internet clock and restarted the WSPR software. No idea what I have missed, but my Win 8.1 PC wants to do this from time to time, for no apparent reason. It also lost 10m settings. It is working now and I am still being spotted by EA6URL. Still no real DX.
UPDATE 1915z: Still just EU Es on 10m WSPR.
UPDATE 2000z: It was worth the wait: CX2ABP (11127km) in Montevideo spotted my 2W WSPR at 1946z. Real DX at last. Signal report was weak at -31dB S/N and I wonder if it was Es (to Spain) + F2 layer for the rest of the path? I wonder if there will be other South Americans later? There seems to be a distinct lack of South American stations on 10m WSPR.
UPDATE 2145z: No more Es since 2004z. Going QRT shortly.
UPDATE 2215z: QRT.
