Longwave Loggings / missing beacons
« on: March 11, 2023, 1656 UTC »
Has anyone heard 198 DIW Dixon NC lately?  Haven't heard it here in MI all Winter. 
Otherwise, more local to me, 278 ADG Adrian MI and 253 DD Columbus OH also
not being heard.  Anybody know if any of these have been decommissioned?

Heard 365 AA 1030Z this morning, in and out and faint but in there mixing with TV.

The Cuban completely covers WLS some mornings.

Hearing SYZ Shelbyville IL and JN Muncie IN,  both on 365, in  here to MI this morning @1007Z... no AA.
AA was last logged in late October according to several sources.  My guess is that AA is currently
not on the air for whatever reason.

Been hearing 363 RNB Millville NJ steady every morning and 365 TV Traverse City in and out most mornings but 365 AA is nowhere to be heard.

IIRC have only logged SYZ one time as it is usually covered by AA and TV (Traverse City MI).
Regarding AA, as you say, no NOTAM and nothing recently in the NFDD.
Have not heard it here recently but band conditions have been poor.
Will be looking for it.

Caught both of these yesterday morning 2 hours before sunrise both with big sigs in here
which surprised me given the otherwise poor band conditions.

OK, pretty sure the mystery is solved...
Had been hearing this in the car with no way to peak or null the signal
to aid in identifying it.  However, this morning had some time to play with
the CCrane 2E and was able to peak the Spanish speaking station in the null of WLS.
This led me to assume the station was Cuban as the sigs peaked in that direction.
The OTA program matched the online Radio Progreso
(they were playing some music this morning so that helped with the ID), so most likely it is AM 890
Chambas Cuba at 200kw power output.

Been hearing a Spanish speaking station on this frequency lately in the pre-dawn hours
mixing with WLS.  An OM and YL chatting back and forth, never any music.
Mexican?, Cuban?, any ideas... ???

AFAIK, 50kw KMOX has one tower with an omnidirectional pattern day and night.
Its signal really booms in here most evenings, have even logged it on the xtal set.
Perhaps this is due to the excellent soil conductivity at the TX site (btw, which is
actually across the river in Illinois).

No written reports without a recording...  ???
So you think I'm going to lie about it just to get a QSL card from a station I didn't hear?
Wow... just wow.   ::)

Finally got around to posting this...
That is a grand total of 6 beacons logged with a PL-600 coupled to a 50' external antenna.
Just a year ago that number would have been 15 to 25 beacons depending on the daytime
conditions using the same set up.

Ernie Harwell began his Detroit Tiger broadcast years at then flagship station WKMH AM 1310 in 1960.
In 1963, WKMH changed format and became legendary rocker WKNR "Keener 13".  In 1964, 50kw WJR became the
Tigers flagship station and remained so until 2001 with Harwell doing the play by play.

« on: September 03, 2022, 1411 UTC »
Got a partial ID in job transit. I clearly heard WHL?. Just could not pull-in that last letter. So, that KY station´s gotta´ be it. 41W at night? Huh... Kind of a short-skip to me, but it dominates 1410AM at night here. So, pinto vortando, looks like ya go it. https://radio-locator.com/cgi-bin/finder?sr=Y&s=C&call=whln&nav=home
