Monitoring at Black Snake Creek Rd, Bunyip State Park

I went out to the Bunyip State Park, 65 km east of Melbourne, on Saturday
June 4 2011.

There is no power line interference there!

We are now inside early winter, and our daylength has reduced to 9 hrs 39
mins - this will reduce to 9 hrs 33 mins on all days from June 18 to 25.

The highest point of the sun on June 4 was 0217 UTC (12.17 pm).

This means that our daytime long-haul multi-hop propagation is now at its
peak from our mid-morning and across midday - on June 5, Voice of Russia on
7270 appeared as early as 0115 (11.15 am) from Yerevan with its Spanish
service, followed shortly later by a heap of other 7 MHz European longpath

Spectrum research in the mid-afternoon between 0330 and 0430 revealed a vast
array of signals from all continents on 6 MHz, 7 MHz, 9 MHz and 11 MHz.

The receiver was the little Eton Et with 2 metres of random antenna!
