Tropo lift late evening 27/28 August 2016

Post by Nick Gilly » 28 Aug 2016 17:06

A nice lift late yesterday evening down to SW France & northern Spain. Hepburn was predicting that the lift would peak this morning around 0600 UTC but when I checked on waking the lift had collapsed and conditions were flat.

Well done Nick.

I was on the very outer limits of that tropo with only Bourges coming through. This was at RDS levels around 0500 but had gone by late morning when I was able to check again.

Thanks John. It's just a pity it didn't peak this morning as the maps were looking very promising.

Hopefully there will be more tropo this coming week as high pressure is dominating, particularly in the south. Now we are moving towards September the potential is there for a proper blockbuster opening!
Good DX.
