Tropo report

Finally, some sort of action after being dead for ages.  Tropo mostly within SA and strong. Here's the log:

89.9 5CCC Pt. Lincoln
90.7 5KIX Kangaroo Island
91.5 5PNN Tumby Bay
93.1 5ABCFM Pt. Lincoln
99.3 8SAT Streaky Bay
100.9 5ABCRN Streaky Bay
101.9 5ABCRN Tumby Bay
106.9 8SAT Wudinna
107.3 5ABCRN Wirrulla
107.7 5YYY Whyalla

100.7 6ABCRN Salmon Gums - Identified via time given which was 2.5 hours behind SA therefore, WA.  Seems most likely location being 100kms north of Esperance.  Esperence stations blocked by Adelaide locals so couldn't try for them.

105.3 Unknown JJJ, different time zone to SA as I checked Adelaide on 105.5.  Murray Valley ruled out as even when this one was in at reasonable levels no sign of other Murray Valley.

10am noted very weak Tropo from Albany for about 20 minutes.  94.5 and 96.9 were the best heard.

This morning saw 89.3 Gulf FM, 90.9 Flow FM Maitland and Spencer Gulf stations at 3 bars on the Sony.  This also meant strong DTV from Port Pirie, with watchable pictures.

SGS-40 Port Pirie (Southern Cross Ten)

GDS-42 Port Pirie (Southern Cross Nine)

GTS-44 Port Pirie (Southern Cross GTS/BKN)
