 VK5RSE beacon report 3018 km on tropo (not Es)

On Sunday 6th Jan 2013 NZST ZL stations enjoyed an intense tropo opening to VK2, VK3, and VK5 with tropospheric ducting. The main purpose is to record on the web the reception report of the VK5RSE beacon received at 3018 km.

VK5RSE 144.550 MHz beacon heard on the 5th Jan UTC around 2130 at 3018 km tropo (not Es)

A U/Tube video is also presented along with tropo maps and also other stations worked on 144 and 432 MHz.

My location was RF73HM at 350 metres ASL looking west to Australia with sea views.

In the log 144 MHz that day (in order worked) (in brackets also 432)
