HF Monitoring Oct 29 2012

On the morning of Oct 29 2012 I did some some spectrum monitoring work bet ween 1600 and 1700, that’s 3 am here in Melbourne.

I was at astonished to discover that the 16 metre band was very active, with MUFs quite high, even though solar activity is advised as being “very low”!

Many signals on 19 mb also.

Many long path signals from Europe, the Middle East, and Africa arriving from across the Pacific, after passing over North America.

This is a summary:
