Winter Monitoring Report from Melbourne - 4, 5, 6, 7,9 MHz

I was out in the Olinda Forest, 30 km east of the Melbourne CBD, on Friday afternoon July 3, 2009, a cold, bleak, and rainy winter day!

My visit was to review some walking tracks and to discover new winter Fungi, in this former logging region.

I took the little Eton E5 receiver with me, and did some HF propagation research in the mid-afternoon on 4, 5, 6, 7, and 9 MHz, between 0500 and 0600.

Good longpath propagation from Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, and shortpath from Asia and the Americas.

Here are some selected entries from my research, all in the 0500 to 0600 window:
