afternoon February 22 2011, for some bushwalking and nature photography.
I checked out propagation in the window 0400 to 0500, using the little Eton
E5 and a 3m random antenna, at one of my favourite monitoring locations at
the start of the Tonimbuk Track.
Excellent longpath signals from Europe, Africa, Middle East, and shortpatrh
from Asia and the Americas, on 9 MHz, 11 MHz, and 13 MHz.
Also good shortpath propagation from Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia on
15 MHz and 17 MHz.
