NB: Unusual to hear so many DNB's in hours of daylight here, considering I am 110kms in a direct line from the ocean with a mountain range in between. To convert the time, 0300z is 1.00pm local time here. This is by far the most DNB's logged in a single afternoon during daylight hours. Signals started to drop away around 0400z. Comments from propagation experts welcome... :)

The "LZ" group:

Close scrutiny of the call signs logged will see the "LZ" prefix occuring on the 1MHz band, so the total logged is: LZ0, LZ9, LZ6, LZ5, LZ4, LZ3, & LZ2 so far this month.  Multiple use of the same frequency is also common and often up to three different call signs can be heard on the same frequency during a monitoring session, some spaced apart (timing sequence) and others bunched together and thus overlapping making identification difficult.
