6m WSPR and Doppler shift

Note Doppler on signals at 1742z
This evening some very strong signals have been coming in from North Africa on 6m by Es. CN8LI has been coming through on WSPR for a few hours with some people receiving him at +12dB S/N. What is interesting is the amount of Doppler on his signal at times. Also, several other signals coming through with up to 40Hz of shift over the 2 minute WSPR slot making decoding impossible. Some of this will be aircraft reflection, but some may be due to fast moving layers of ionisation in the E layer. At least with the WSPR screen such effects can be seen.
