AARIP NVIS-VHF GTMO Exercise
One of the most unusual HF propagation days we have seen.... 3 M-class Solar events, almost an X-class, and the lowest afternoon ionization seen in a long time.
Many thanks to the Waldo EOC Crew and Everyone who participated. Extraordinarily strong performances demonstrated by so many!
