MW Loggings / Re: KGFR 1490 AM New station in Great Falls Montana
« on: October 05, 2014, 0138 UTC »
Update Oct 4  2012
Shortly after I made the original post - KGFR AM went silent..
I checked from time to time during the summer and nothing.. Went to Great Falls a few times this summer - again nothing on 1490 AM

Today  Oct 4  2014  I noticed a nice strong 20 khz wide signal on 1490 khz - sure enough KFGFR is back on the air now, very nice audio!

I am about 75 miles from the tower with a mountain range between us so I loose them completely when they switch to night time power levels...

A Beacon 2097.3 khz 02:25 utc 9-16-14
I noticed the 160 meter ham band was active tonight so while reading this post I thought this A beacon might be wort a try. Sure enough it is coming in strong here in Montana tonight.  CW Letter A repeated about every 10 seconds.

Here is a screen capture of CKZN from 23:24 utc  9-14-2014

The carrier for CKZU (CBC Radio 1 Vancouver) is on 6159.984 khz
Note the UNID carrier to the left of CK's is on 6159.975 khz

I have good audio from CK but nothing heard from the other carrier even though it often is briefly higher in strength than CK's ?

00:06 utc I take it back - now hearing some audio underneath CKZU but can't make an ID.

I have a copy on DRNK Beacon again here tonight, 9/13/14  4:25 utc
Not as strong as last night but definite DRNK.
Elegant example of pic programing for simple QRP (I assume)  beacon.
