September 24-30, 1998

Propagation - Nothing noted on FM. The recent tropo was better the further north you were in the UK. Down here in London, it was largely a non-event.

Skywaves - John Faulkner has had recurrent PC problems which have dramatically delayed the production of this month's Skywaves magazine. Watch this space. Meanwhile, you can peruse recent editions in electronic form by clicking here. There's also a compilation logbook for 1998 (so far). NOTE - that you'll need (free) Acrobat Reader 3 software from Adobe.

September 2, 1998

Propagation - Tunisia in apparent isolation 1005-1050 but with deep fading. As far as I could determine (due to QSB) 89.6 and 91.8 were NOT parallel. EFMH'97 suggests 91.8 could be local programme of R Gafsa.
