Summer 2012 2M tropo continues

I arrived home Friday evening around 8:30 from my weeks long vacation to discover that 2M was open, and apparently, was open all day. I turned on the station and within a few minutes worked N3MK in FM27 and K3CNH in FM28. Both were loud, S7, and fairly consistent. The band was building as the evening went on, finally both N3MK and K3CNH were S9+10 by around 10:30pm. Here is a video of N3MK calling:

I had SpectraVue running with my SDR-IQ on the IF output of the K3. Here you can see how loud N3MK, K3CNH and the K4MHZ beacon were:

And finally, this is what the APRS map looked like.

My only regret was that there weren't more stations to work.
