22m Beacons 29 Jul 2019

Heard AMA, ODX & WAS in the upper part of 22m around 1500 UTC. Central part sounds like a R2D2 convention. Strong "carrier" in the lower part, probably EH. Using the A-2515 so exact frequencies unknown.

And look what happened right around 1500 UTC: A bump in E layer propagation:
