Excellent propagation on 7 MHz at noon in Melbourne

Excllent propagation conditions are currently observed here in Melbourne on 7 MHz, from mid-morning, across noon, and into the mid-afternoon. That's the window between 0100 and 0400, with the band open for the full time span.

Between 0100 and 0130, shortpath signals from Europe, Africa, and the Middle East dominate, and from about 0130 to past 0400, longpath mode occurs forthe same regions. North American transmitters on 7 MHz are also audible, via shortpath, from 0130 to 0400 and later.

On 6 MHz, Voz Cristiana, Santiago, Chile, has been giving good signals on 6070 (actually on 6069) for its Spanish service, shortpath mode over theAntarctic region, from fade in at around 2300 to past 0000. This is unusual propagation, local time here is 9 am to 10 am.

I have included a comprehensive summary of these 6MHz and 7MHz propagation events in episode 152 of the Australian DX Report audio news mgazine, which also features news and information about shortwave broadcasting,propagation, further monitoring notes, new schedules, extracts from schedules, and schedule updates.
