K4MHZ 2M beacon heard in FN42la
At around 10pm local time, I started hearing the K4MHZ/B in FM25 in Hatteras, NC on 144.300. This is somewhat of an amazing feat for me, since I have such a relatively small antenna system. I'm only running 12 elements up around 25 feet. This beacon is nearly 800km from my location in FN42la.
Here is a short Youtube video that I took of the audio.
This is what the APRS propagation logger looked like at the time. The beacon is basically at the very tip of the large red lobe.
