Excellent daytime propagation from Asia, 7 and 9 MHz


On Sunday Dec 21 I was in the mountains overlooking the Maroondah Reservoir, 65 km east of Melbourne.

I had the Eton E5 receiver with me, and I was pleasantly surprised at the strong daytime signals from Asia in mid-afternoon via the Daytime Asian Mode.

As usual for this Mode, signals appeared out of nowhere, peaking to excellent in a few milliseconds! No fading. Influenced by topside reflection from Sporadic E clouds moving over northern Australia.

These are some of the signals, noted between 0400 and 0430:

7130 MALAYSIA Sarawak

7210 VIETNAM national network
7270 MALAYSIA Sarawak
7290 INDIA regional
7295 MALAYSIA domestic relay
9530 VIETNAM national network
9595 JAPAN R. Nikkei
9620 CHINA CNR2
9645 CHINA CNR1
9665 N. KOREA KCBS
9685 CHINA CNR5
9720 CHINA CNR1
9730 MYANMAR
9750 MALAYSIA V. of Islam
9760 JAPAN R. Nikkei
9810 CHINA CNR2
9850 VIETNAM dialects
9875 VIETNAM dialects

The picture, above, was taken at the monitoring site on the Maroondah Track.
