WSPR Propagation Analysis - G3XBM 28 MHz

Many WSPR operators jump from one band to the next, when band conditions changes.
Roger G3XBM ran his WSPR signal for several days on 28 MHz.
This provides interesting information on propagation on 28 MHz.
I collected data from the WSPR database, to make this diagram.
In this diagram, I choose to show the spots of Roger received by DK6UG over 600 kilometer and LB9YE over 1500 km.
The diagram shows the number of spots for a day and from hour to hour.
The stronger the signal, the lower the calculated lowest possible power.

DK6UG over 600 km
It's interesting to see that the propagation to DK6UG changes from day to day.
On the 13th there are two peaks in the propagation, with no propagation in between.
On the 14th there is only a spot on 18 UTC.
This is at the same time of the peak of the day before.
On the 15th there are 3 peaks at 11, 14 and 19 UTC
The 17th is the most interesting day.
The day starts with reception on 11 till 12:58 UTC.
The 17th shows one very strong spot at 14:10 UTC with a calculated lowest possible power of 10 mW. The next spot with a CLPP of 1000 mW was on 14:54 UTC. Notice that in this spot the signal strenght is 20 dB lower.
Please notice that there is no reception from 13:00 till 13:58 UTC on all days,except for the 19th.

LB9YE over 1500 km versus DK6UG over 600 km
Most interesting are 13th and 14th
At the 13th the propagation is good to DK6UG, but not to LB9YE.
At the 14th it's the other way around.
