50MHz MS condx were down, but showed great promise.

Whilst the only completed Q was with Brad VK2QO @ 2043z (RS51), many very short and intense pings and burns were heard. On many occassions pings lifted both Frank VK7DX and Joe VK7JG to RS55 for part or whole of their CQ calls.

Tomorrow's another day... and hopefully a few completed Qs!

Been a couple of weeks since I was in the shack.... and on Saturday morning I wasn't rewarded with great condx. A very quiet morning on 50MHz MS. Only a few weak scatter signals heard from Brad VK2QO and Frank VK7DX.... but nothing that supported a completed Q.

Whilst today's 50MHz MS was a little better than yesterday, it didn't deliver any completed Q's. Heard this morning were Frank VK7DX @ 2007z (RS51), Brad VK2QO @ 2017z (RS51) and VK2QO again @ 2019z (RS54).

Brad VK2QO has said that February would be a poor month for 50MHz MS... and today proved him right!

No beacons, no stations heard!
