Monitoring from Witton's Reserve, Warrandyte State Park

I climbed Mt Lofty this afternoon, in the extreme east of the Warrandyte
State Park, 40 km east of Melbourne.

The views from the summit were truly spectacular, to the Victorian Alps,
Yarra Ranges, and Dandenong Ranges.

I had the Eton E5 with me, and a couple of metres of antenna, and some good
results were produced mid-afternoon next to the Yarra River, at the Witton's
Reserve canoe launching ramp.

Between 0500 and 0600, longpath signals from Europe, Africa and the Middle
East were audible on 7 MHz, and shortpath from Brazil on 9 MHz and 11 MHz.

Here are some extracts of my research:

7210 RUSSIA VOR-Moscow Spanish
7220 ROMANIA RRI Romanian
7280 RUSSIA VOR-Krasnodar Spanish
7360 VATICAN VR English
7375 GERMANY Croatian Radio, Wertachtal, Croatian
9565 BRAZIL R. Tupi network
11815 BRAZIL R. Brasil Central
