May 9, 2018 70cm opening after Midnight

#1 Post by wb1hbu » 09 May 2018 00:25

Hello,

There seems to be some nighttime conditions occurring a couple of times this past week. Tonight a ham friend of mine noticed the W2MR Repeater (442.7 MHz) from Alpine, NJ was coming in to his location and he was able to have a QSO. I was able to also pick up the W2MR repeater with a LPDA here on the north shore shortly after midnight. I did not try to listen for anything else.

The coastal fog is the tell-tale culprit. ;)
