After reading the preamble there was absolutely lousy band conditions April 2nd & 9th 2012...Zero(0) check ins for those two weeks... but I think the band is open to South Africa on and off.
After reading the preamble on April 16th 2012... I did get ONE check in.
I think this was just a brute force muscle contact for us after all it is 376 miles!
Maybe conditions will be better in April with Sporadic- E season just around the corner!
