Good propagation from Africa and Middle East in mid-afternoons

It's still winter here in Melhourne - the days are generally overcast and
bleak - around 4 degrees at sunrise, and maxima about 13 degrees.

Despite that, good propagation prevails in our mid-afternoons, with nice
signals on 9, 11, and 13 MHz from Africs, Europe, and the Middle East,
following the darkness shortpath, arriving in Melbourne from the south
Pacific.

Here's a summary of important spectrum occupancies of July 21, 2010, in the
window 0500 to 0600 (3pm-4pm here) from transmitters located in the above
regions.

This propagation research was done at a field site in the Warrandyte State
Park, on the banks of the Yarra River, 20 km east of central Melbourne, with
the Eton E5 receiver and 3m of random antenna.
