[dx_india] Observations during Solar Eclipse from Denmark

Regarding the Total Solar Eclipse, I made the following observations here at my home in Skovlunde on July 22 (UTC):

INDIA 0030 0058 0110

Hyderabad 4800 S9+10 S9 S9
Bhopal 4810 S9+5 S9 S9
Mumbai 4840 S9+10 S9+10 S9+5
New Delhi 4860 S9+5 S5 faded out
Lucknow 4880 S9 S8 S7
Jaipur 4910 S9+10 S8 S8
Chennai 4920 S9+10 S9+5 S9+5
Srinagar 4950 S8 S5 S5 QRM Angola
Thiruvan... 5010 S9+5 S8 S8
Jeypore 5040 S9 S7 S6

No other AIR stations were audible.

OTHER STATIONS on clear channels:
0015 0050
Laos 4412 not heard not heard
" 7145 not heard not heard
Vietnam 5925 not heard not heard
" 5975 not heard not heard
Bhutan 6035 not heard not heard
Malaysia 7130 not heard not heard
Thailand 12095 not heard not heard.

Thus, I did not recognize any effects of the total Solar Eclipse, just normal fade outs because of the sunrise !

But as a matter of fact, the Indian stations well heard, all had their reflections points in the ionosphere towards Denmark far to the northwest of India, so these reflections seems not affected by the total solar eclipse. Unfortunately I was unable to hear any stations which reflection points happened to hit the eclipse zone.
