Australian DX Report, episode no. 153 available

Excellent wintry propagation conditions are currently observed here in Melbourne on 41 mb, from mid-morning, across noon, and into the mid-afternoon. That's the four-hour window between 0000 and 0400, with this band now open for the full 24 hours.

Shortpath signals from Europe, Africa, and the Middle East dominate the period from 0000 until 0130; from 0130 until 0400, propagation from thoseregions is via longpath.

The 49 mb band is now open until 0030 for the same regions, for short path transmissions, and again from 0200 for longpath.

Good shortpath African signals are currently audible in the 49 mb band from as early as 1800, 4am Melbourne time, until 2300, 9am, which is two hours past our sunrise.

African signals on 49 mb include:

5895 RFI-Meyerton 2000-2200*
5915 R. Zambia 1900-2100*
5940 CVC-Zanbia 1800-2200
