first time more than 3000spots/hour on all bands...

Short skip conditions here in Europe make my 2x Xeon quadcore Workstation be real busy for the first time...
300km far away stations on 20m are 40db over S9 on the rhombic to northwest. This antenna favours rather high angle radiation on 20m.... so the short skip propagation put the kiwi's on fire...hi
10db att-pads nessesary for the first time as well this evening...
I saw Holgers kiwi also overload for short moments for the strong UK BC-signals from Wooferton (250...500kW on 20dbi ant)
My kiwi shows S9+55db for these stations today...
about 19h utc, 21h local, local sunset expected at 19h58 in roughly one hour.... the computer needs almost 70sec - never experienced before

Frank LX1DQ also spots really al lot (also almost 3000spots all band/hour), Holger similar
All bands full throttle (incl. 10m) at the moment...
Only 6m suffers now, due to another 6db att.pad needed to prevent overloading at the rhombic to northwest ...
I think within 30min I can remove it again, as signal strength will weaker a bit...
