Australian DX Report episode 126 available

Propagation into Melbourne recently has exhibited some unusual behaviours,with good shortpath signals from Europe observed on 11 MHz in the period 1700 through until past 2200.

Despite continuing zero or very low sunspot activity, the 15 MHz and 17 MHz bands have also opened up for shortpath signals from the Americas, notedfrom 1700 to past 2100.

The seasonal summer daytime specialized Asian Mode has appeared in the earlyafternoon, with good propagation from Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar on 9 MHz in the period 0400-0500.

For the week Nov 11-16 I was on holidays in the Northern Territory – from alocation in the Kakadu National park, 350 km east of Darwin, at the AuroraKakadu Resort, early evening propagation on 6 and 7 MHz from Asia was excellent, as expected. That was the only location where I was able to makeany propagation studies.
Sunspot numbers from Nov 14-19 have been 12, 11, 11, 11, 0, 0
