Subject: [USECA] tropo
Due to the high temps today, and the temp drops tonight, there should be some good tropospheric ducting on VHF/UHF.
For those with FM only rigs, listen to simplex frequencies and call out to see if the freq's in use.
You'd be surprised how far you can talk on 2M simplex during tropo! I know a guy who worked Toledo from an HT in his driveway!
Myself, I've talked a couple hundred miles via 2M simplex. Like, Cleveland!
