Strong daytime signals for early winter!

Here in Melbourne, winter officially started on June 1, which is represented by very good daytime signals during the various propagation windows.

49 mb is good for shortparth from Europe, ME, and Africa until about 0000, and returns around 0200 for longpath, 10 am to noon here! 41 and 31 mbs from the same areas are good right through during our 10 am to 2 pm window, 0000-0400.

There is also excellent shortpath propagation from Europe, Middle East and Africa in the 19 and 16 mbs in the 0000-0500 period, with signals following the daylight route, and arriving in Melbourne from the west.

Yesterday afternoon I was out in the Olinda Forest 20 km east of here, and did some propagation research with the little Eton and a 5 m antenna, which revealed the following occupancies:
