Tropo log - 2/3/17

Finally getting around to posting about tropo received on the morning of March 2. Actually, it began the night before, but the bulk of it was in the morning.

89.9 5CCC Pt. Lincoln
93.1 5ABCFM Pt. Lincoln
97.7 8SAT (Flow FM) Coonalpyn
101.9 5ABCRN unsure if Tumby Bay or Roxby Downs**
102.5 5JJJ Mt. Gambier
103.3 5ABCRN Mt. Gambier
104.1 5ABCFM Mt. Gambier
104.9 5RCB Mt. Gambier (very weak)
105.7 5PNN Mt. Gambier

90.9 8SAT (Flow FM) Maitland at 2 bars on the Sony XDRF1HD with RDS. In fact, this one has been in most days at strong levels. Maitland is on the Yorke Peninsula only about 104km away, hence the regularity of the reception. 5KIX Kingscote (Kangaroo Island) is another example that is regular during summer, as is 89.1 5BBB Tanunda (Barossa Valley) and 89.1 which can either be 5GFM Arthurton or 5EFM Victor Harbor.

**Spencer Gulf stations - 102.7, 103.5, 104.3, 105.1, 105.9, 106.7, plus 107.7 5YYY Whyalla, where coming in at strong levels, so am leaning more towards Roxby Downs, as that is also to the north of me, but further than Spencer Gulf. Port Lincoln was not as strong.

Triple J Mt. Gambier
