Long skip , would of been the description in the past ?
most spots  1000  mile  + list ,last 7 days , unique
contacts ,  couple of -27 db listed, that would put op1 at
-24 and op05 -21 , which ~ system limit 

R3D-262 using web-sdr , as opera is  single tone and self  synchronising 
the audio processing [ tone elimination]  and  transit delay ,in the web , 
is not relevant , to performance
