Now looking thru the overnite shots the peak from zm2e in 3d2 was just a couple of hours before dawn in Fiji when the signal was huge - Im guessing a high S number and Im sure a SSB qso would have worked then (I was sleeping about a mile away!) - ill forward captures to bob and anyone else that want them. We saw the transmissions go off after dawn our time. Thanks Bob and crew.

Hi all,

The ZM2E beacon transmission from Quartz Hill went well from our point of
view, but it seems LF DX propagation was probably thinner than normal.

As Laurence 3D2KL has already reported, we had a successful crossband
137k/7M contact with him, including 15 wpm CW, even though it was fairly
early in the evening. As Laurence reported good LF signal strength from the DFCW120 beacon, we started the QSO with DFCW10, so any DX listeners in North
America with 120 second dot length setting would have been rather
compromised.  The QSO took place between 0550 and 0710z.

We were unsuccessful with trying to have an SSB contact with AX2TAR (in
VK7). We tried from 0900 to 1000z, so there was no beacon during that hour.
The DFCW beacon ran for three sessions:
- from before ZL sunset till 0550z,
- then from 0710 till 0900z,
- then from 1000z till after ZL sunrise around 2000z.

The next booking for LF tests is the September equinox.

73, Bob ZL2CA
