First 2m contacts via Tropospheric Ducting

Tropospheric ducting on  31/12/09  provided me with my first contacts on 144 MHz 2 meter band. 144 MHz is usually good for short distance almost line of site type contacts, but tropospheric ducting is one mechanism which can provide long distance communications on this band.

My contacts were all VK3 (Victoria)

VK3MY
VK3AMZ
VK3KH
VK3XPD
VK3AUU
VK3AMZ
VK3ZZF
VK3HJ

Mostly around the 2000 kilometer mark.
