There was some light tropo during the early hours. Signals were stable but it didn't last for long. I wouldn't have been awake at that time anyway so it's all thanks to the FDM-S2 recordings. This makes up for a poor meteor scatter session. I know it's still a fair long compared to single frequency DXing but the activity has been very much down on recent nights with hardly any pings. There were a few longer bursts to make up for it though. You just never know what to expect with meteor scatter.
