Note: in the morning at 10-12z we had a very interesting opening with VK8 area (VK8MS/VK8AW) with a path of around 13500-14000 Km. Band, in I0 area, it was enough flat; no signals (or carrier) from any other stations in the direction of the VK'S signals were on. There were only weak UT/UA TV carriers at that time. We had only some LZ signals, but weak, time to time. The VK8's called for long time but the propagation was very "spotty", so a few stations were be able to work with them. 1st italian that noted this path was IZ8DWF.
