There was great tropo enhancement last night here in Ohio. If conditions are that stellar on 2m, it's probably noticeable on all of VHF, UHF and above. If you like scanning, you'll probably hear a lot more scanning public safety/business bands than you will ever hear scanning 2m.
That is impressive. That beam is really putting out a good signal. On my end, I was thinking of getting a J-Pole that I can play around with anywhere I go. I've heard a lot of good reviews about this antenna.Been great lately! Been hitting repeaters 100+ miles away with an ELK portable 2m/440 beam antenna mounted indoors!!
