Early evening - 30m
« on: February 04, 2014, 20:56:07 UTC »
I decided to give 30m a try late afternoon today. Not quite into grey-line but close.
Signal levels were incredible, the Reverse Beacon spots were showing very high snr reports and between 1600 and 1645 I worked EO9, G4, DL1, HA2 and UA6 receiving reports 599 and 579.
Unfortunately when it starts to get dark the noise level here on all low bands increases to about S5 which makes hearing QRP or for that matter any signal less than S5 very difficult.
Situation is not help when XYL turns on the plasma TV - that generates a lot of horrible noise!!!!
