Excellent propagation on 15, 17, and 21 MHz in our sunrise window

Solar activity at this point in Sunspot Cycle 24, whilst low, is hovering
around 145 for the 10.7 cm solar flux, and daily SSNs are about 100.

For the first time this cycle, I am experiencing multi-hop, long-haul
propagation on 15 MHz, and above, over darkness or semi-darkness paths into
Melbourne, in our sunrise period.

This is a sumamry of band occupancy observed on December 10, 2011, in the
