Monitoring from the Sherbooke Forest

On March 14 2009 I was in the Sherbrooke Forest, Dandenong Ranges National Park, about 35 km east of the Melbourne CBD.

This Park has now been reopened after the terrible bushfires - all fires across Victoria have now been contained, due to heavy rain in the past two days.

Propagation on 9 MHz in the period 0430 to 0500 at Sherbrooke was excellent, and this is a summary of longpath signals from Africa and the Middle East, using the Eton E5 and a 3 m antenna in a fern tree.

9675 S. ARABIA BSKSA Arabic
9700 TURKEY VOT *0458 Turkish
9704 ETHIOPIA Amharic
9745 S. AFRICa Channel Af French
9755 RWANDA DW Kigali Arabic
780 YEMEN R. Sanaa Arabic
9820 IRAN VOIRI Hebrew
9865 IRAN VOIRI Azeri
9875 IRAN VOIRI Dari
9895 IRAN VOIRI Arabic

The 6 and 7 MHz bands were not propagating very well in this time period!

Some photos from where I went!
