UA0LE had long periods of O to M copy in Wellington overnight. Again it was
best in the "second half" of mutual dark path time.
Of the seven nights that UA0LE has so far been transmitting, I missed one
(gear still packed from the ZM2E trip), but got O copy for good periods on
each of the other six nights. Mike ZL4OL, located near Dunedin, has also
been monitoring, and did receive beacon signals on the night I was AWOL, so
the evidence is that the ZL/UA0 path is rather productive for LF DX.
I can also report that I have been supplied with a sequence of Argo pics
captured last Saturday night from a location near New Orleans (USA). The
captures show very good copy of the ZM2E side of the QSO with UATLE, however
from initial inspection there is nothing useful displayed of the UATLE side
of the QSO, yet the display bandwidth is sufficient to show it if it was
received. There are QRM lines as well, which may mask UATLE, so more
analysis is needed. My provisional view is that a north/south LF path
appears to have significantly better DX propagation than an east/west path.
