Autumn propagation

Solar Flux is 111, SSN is 62.

Propagation into Melbourne on March 2 2011, the second day of Autumn, has
been rather good, with plenty of activity on 6, 7, and 9 MHz as our sunrise
is later. 6 and 7 MHz are good until 2300, 9 MHz good all day.

The window between 2200 and 2300 is interesting, on 9 MHz, with plenty of
shortpath propagation from Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, and
shortpath from Asia.

There are also strong signals from the Americas, longpath, particularly the
religious broadcasters clustered at the bottom end of the band.

This summary will be of interest, for February 2, 2011:

9265 USA WINB
9305 EGYPT R. Cairo Arabic
9330 SYRIA R. Damascus Spanish/Arabic
9350 USA WWCR mega-signal!
9355 USA WYFR German
9370 USA WTJC
9385 USA WWRB
9470 SINGAPORE BBC-Kranji Chinese
9480 USA WTWW super-signal!

Regards from Melbourne!
