QSL Letter

I got a letter in the post from a German SWL today (Frank from Scheibenberg) to report reception of my WSPR signal on 7 MHz. The report was for the 18th of March and he was using a 1 metre diameter active loop antenna (Wellbrook ALA1530) indoors.
I was surprised to get a reception report by letter because reports are usually uploaded straight to the internet by WSPR but he must not have been online because there is no record on wsprnet.org that anybody in that location received me (I was being received by other German stations at the same time).

Here are the stations less than 500km away who received my 14 MHz WSPR signals.
How are these short distances being covered? Are they short skip of the type you would get on 3.5 - 7 MHz or a more direct path?
