Thanks Fred for your patience and monitoring band!
Comment:Very nice duct to West Atlantic!
Many thanks for this precious beacon in Azores!
Ever first qso for me via tropo to Acores rarely as to CT3/EA8.
Hope it'll give more activity now in CU now we know long tropo duct is possible and also inland!
Sorry not much report about this event i think some vhfs hams in : io70,80,90,in78,87,88,94,95 did qso with CU8AO on 2M tropo too and , one in94,io90 on 70cms! . Fews did qsos with CU3EQ in IO70,80,90.
The 14/09 the tropo was ever here with CU and i had strong copy to Paris,ON beacon so that's explain why some around IN98 JN19/18/38 JO20 were able to copy the beacon > 3000kms!
So hope next time less beacon spotts and more qso!
