Propagation into Melbourne continues to be very good over the full 24 hrs, despite very low level of solar activity.
On June 4, the 10.7 cm solar flux had dropped to 75 and the equivalent sunspot number had fallen to 13, with a predicted drop to 74/11 on June 7!
It's early winter here in Melbourne, and the sun only rises to 28 degrees above the northern horizon during the noon transit, yielding barely nine hours of daylight.
The 49 and 41 mbs are now very active all day, with various combinational/specialized propagation modes appearing and disappearing as the day progresses!
Fascinating opportunities to observe and research long-haul propagation during a period of negligible solar activity.
