Well that was interesting.
Saw john was on 7110 so flicked down there and found him in noise level 4/1 made contact with John 4/4 and 4/1.
In middle of the report exchange signals went straight 5/9 and 5/8 and be came loud and clear.
john spotted over head air craft and possible could have bounced out signals off that very air craft.
Said our byes, next CQ call back in the noise level and looking at the Sota data were 152 km apart.
Kinda made my day possible bounced signals off an aircraft on 40m.
Something happened but what hell caused that.
