E-Skip or Not? + Albany Tropo

Around 6.40 this evening (31/12/12) had a strange thing happen...noted E's in, heard 90.7, 91.1 (heard mention of SBS), 91.5 and 92.9 which appeared to be ABCFM Sydney.  I then suddenly get an interference that pretty much wiped the band, with only the strongest able too overcome it.  Unable to get rid of it, I switched the Tuner off at the power point and then back on after a few seconds....interference all gone - but so was the E's!

Meanwhile, tropo was once again strong this morning, having started early yesterday evening.  Eyre Peninsula and Mt. Dundas were strong once again. Mt. Gambier was also heard, but only last night and Albany was also back in via tropo.  92.9 and 94.5 were weak to very weak, however 100.9 6CRA was coming in strongly and lasted until 11am.

A recording of 6CRA Albany ("Albany Community Radio") from this morning can be heard below.

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year!
