Rotating Headlines from this Journal!

Wednesday, September 9, 2015


Solar activity remains very low (IPS-Sydney) with the 10.7 cm Solar Radio Flux down to 84, and the Equivalent Smoothed Sunspot Number having fallen to 26. So long-haul multi-hop transmissions over darkness or semi-darkness zones remains unreliable on  frequencies above 13 MHz.
I was out at the Warrandyte State Park yesterday afternoon, September 8 2015, in Melbourne's outer east, at one of my favourite monitoring sites in the Fiddler's Gully former gold mining reserve on Fifth Hill. Plenty of quartz rocks and tailings there – perhaps this abundance of  surface  minerals in the area contributes to the good propagation there!
As usual, my receiver was as the small Eton E5 with about two metres of antenna, one metre high, supported in a wattle tree.
Good array of signals on  the 11 MHz band in the 0500 to 0530 period (1500-1530 here) - notable were:
* IRAN – Azeri, Turkish and Dari services
* FRANCE – Issoudun: NHK and R. Denge Kurdistan
* KUWAIT – Mashaal Radio via Kuwait
* S. AFRICA – BBC Meyerton
