It’s called “the magic band”. Propagation of 50MHz signals over long distances is supported by serendipitous opportunities that arise in the ionosphere, in both the E and F regions. Those opportunities may be anticipated, but cannot be reliably forecast. You’ve gotta be there when they happen! Then, it’s magic.
Roger will be covering the characteristics of ionospheric sporadic-E propagation (Es), transequatorial .propagation (TEP), and ionospheric F2 propagation. He has extensive experience in this area having previously worked for the IPS Space Weather Services Research / Engineering branch.
The meeting will start at 7.45pm ACST (8.15pm AEST) and will be relayed to YouTube with thanks to Hayden VK7HH via the HamRadioDX Channel
