Splendid afternoon propagation on 7, 9, 11, and 13 MHz

On Friday afternoon January 8 2010 I went over to the Jumping Creek Reserve in the Warrandyte State Park, about 20 mins from here.

This is another of my favourite noise-free field monitoring sites, and I was impressed with the activity on the 7 MHz, 9 MHz, 11 MHz, and 13 MHz bands between 0330 and 0500.

This is a summary (Eton E5, 5m random antenna):
