ABOVE PHOTO : 02.01.2006, 144 MHz path made with VK6JR @ 2933 km. Now running 162 MHz Marine Tracking to find tropospheric paths that will extend beyond this distance into the Indian ocean and possibly across to FR5DN @ 8800 km.


PHOTO BELOW : Waiting to break into the 3000+ km tropospheric ducting club. The path to Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse @ 2938 km is as far as I can hear on Australian mainland, and its 162 MHz Marine tracking signal was heard numerous times here on 19th Jan 2014. It will take another marine tracking signal on a ship a mere 62 km further a field to finally make this goal.
