** Personal 'First'

I am especially pleased with the Irish meteor scatter this morning. The first time I have received Irish local stations this way. What other mode of propagation would allow such reception? Very unlikely via tropo at this location and certainly too short for E skip. Incredibly, this reception came in while my beam was looking to the north-east!

Good DX!
