On 5 January there was a nice tropo opening across the Great Australian Bight which resulted in the following 10 GHz QSOs

VK6DZ to VK5KK 1902 km JT4f -14, -15 dB
VK6DZ to VK5DK 2087 km SSB 5/2, 5/7
VK6DZ to VK7MO 2732 km JT4f -15, -16 dB peaked later at -12 dB also SSB at 5/1, 3/1

The 2732 km contact is a new World Record exceeding the previous World Record of 2696 km from Southern Portugal to Cape Verde Island by 36 km.
 
VK6DZ was portable at Torbay Hill
VK5KK was portable South of Adelaide
VK7MO was portable Cape Portland ( a 700 km round trip when conditions looked promising)

The Hepburn Chart (below) at the time indicated enhanced but not spectacular conditions. Thanks to David VK3HZ for translating the Hepburn Chart to Google Earth so the lines of propagation are correc t in relation to the Hepburn chart.
