Excellent Asian Daytime Propagation Mode event

Today, I was fortunate in being able to intercept a splendid Asian Daytime
Propagation Mode event on 9 MHz, in the window 0300 to 0330, 1 pm local
standard time here.

This was at one of my favourite field monitoring sites, in the Pound
Bend Reserve, Warrandyte Sate Park, 20 km east of central Melbourne,
using the Eton E5 ad 5 nm of antenna in a gum tree.

The signals were characterised by sudden fade=in, rising almost
instantaneously to great strength.
