First TA spot of my new season, one hour before my sunrise (05:15z)and at the same time receiving a lot of NA stations on 160m (W8AC, KC4SIT, K9PAW, K9YWO, KD9XB, WA9WYK).

Summer opening on 160m (NA/EU path)

Unique spot list:

2016-2017 season on 160m WSPR is now over.
Last NA/EU dx spot dates back to June28, the first one Jul04-2016. Season was amazing with a series of all-time record activity.
Three figures to remember:
- best all time session was Jan08-2017 with 435 unique NA-EU dx spot (see http://wsprnet.org/drupal/node/6679)
- number of session with NA-EU dx spot: 317 nights (272 previous season)
- 484 stations (NA+EU) were able to listen to a station on the other side of the Atlantic (193 previous season).

After sporadic spots from G0BLB (Apr22) and SM4GOG (Apr23,25) Krishna (VU3KAZ) was widely heard in Europe tonight on 160m:

The night of Christmas was magic for my RX NA/EU Challenge on 160m. A new NA station heard, N2NT, allows me to reach the score of 61. That was my final score on 08/06/2016 of the 2015/2016 season. This means that the 2016-2017 season is already excellent for me and for many of you. Some ones asked me I edite a complete score list for the period Jul1st to Dec25: 173EU/73NA (file attached).
Best NA RX station: KK1D(48EU), W1IR(42EU), W8AC(41 EU), K4RCG(34), N2NOM(34EU), K3RWR(31EU)

Congrats to all, 73

It's now trivial to write "new record"; night after night 160m stations generate huge number of NA/EU spots "across the pond"; widely above 1000 dxspots.
A significant figure is the number of UNIQUE dx spot: 221, to compare to previous top Nov23: 122. In the round 53 EU stations and 18 NA stations.
Best NA rx stations: W1IR(12EU), KK1D(10EU), W8AC(8EU), K3RWR(8EU), K9AN(6EU), K4RCG(5EU)
Best EU rx stations: F59706(8NA), MW0PPM(6NA), GM4SLW(6NA), ON4LUC(6NA), PA3FYM(6NA)
To note first NA stations heard by Anthonie NL8992 (K3RWR, W1IR, W8AC).

Great work from FY5KE this night on 160. Hope more to come...
