Notes: Due to a change in my work hours I am now getting up a little bit earlier each morning, over the past few mornings I have noticed that it is still dark when I get up, this lead to me getting up a little bit earlier again this morning to undertake a session for my long term ultralight dxing project before going to work.

At my 6:10am (local) start time I started at the bottom of the band and logged the signal level of each of my 24 check frequencies. As can be seen from the list above, three of the four stations which I rated as a 5 were from Victoria, the only Tasmanian station to reach this level was the HPON station on 1008KHz which is local to me. Again the stations at the lower end of the band which run higher power levels were the stand outs, by 1080KHz all stations were only able to be rated as a 2 or 3. 

7SD on 540KHz was down in signal level and the best I could get this at was a 3. 7PB from Hobart on 747KHz was very poor with a lot of mixing; I suspect another station on this frequency was a cause of this, no ID of this could be heard.

Overall this was a very enjoyable session and the results were encouraging for future sessions at this time.
