Longwave Loggings / LF beacon logs from Thurs 19 Jan 2017

On Thursday evening after 10PM CST (0400utc Fri 20 Jan 2017) I tuned around between
100 and 500 kHz on a Drake R8 using a 7mhz dipole. These are what I heard:

212, 1khz tone, unid.
216, 1khz tone, unid.
223, YYW, Armstrong, Ont, Can.
229, 1khz tone, unid.
235, 1khz tone, unid.
245, YZE, Gore Bay, Ont, Can.
248, UL, Montreal, QC, Can.
257, YXR, Earlton, Ont, Can.
278, NM, Matagami, QC, Can.
329, YHN, Hornepayne, Ont, Can.
332, QT, Thunder Bay, Ont, Can.
335, YLD, Chapleau, Ont, Can.
341, YYU, Kapuskasing, Ont, Can.
351, YKQ, Fort Rupert / Waskaganish, QC, Can.
356, IUL, Laport, IN, USA.
362, SB, Sudbury, Ont, Can.
366, YMW, Maniwaki, QC, Can.
371, both 1k and 400hz tones, unid.
389, EN, Kenosha-Codee, WI, USA.
397, 400hz tone, unid.
413, YHD, Dryden, Ont, Can.
417, HHG, Huntington, IN, USA.

BTW, FYI, several years ago the beacon on 368 known as OH was shut down.
It, or at least the shed, is still there along with the metal fence surrounding it.
One wood pole is still in place along with an upfeed wire and insulator.
The longwire antenna used to be stretched across the northeast corner of the
parking lot of the Northwest Community Hospital complex in Arlington Heights, IL.
That lot has been replaced by a Parking garage. You can see the beacon shed
on google earth. It is on the south side of Kirchhoff road where Ridge street ends.
Also the 75mhz antennas have been removed. It is 3 miles (5km) due west of me. 

(edit) On Friday 27 Oct 2017 I drove over that way to attend an estate sale and the shed, pole and fence
were gone and a landscaping crew was raking new soil on that plot of land and possibly seeding it.
Only a matter of time until it is gone from google earth.

(edit) On Wed 27 Dec 2017 at 11pm cst or 28 Dec at 0500utc google earth still shows fence and shed.
(edit) On Fri 16 March 2018 at 8 pm cdt or 17 Mar at 0100 google earth still shows fence and shed.
(edit) On Fri 26 May 2018 google earth shows it all gone but if you then click on google maps it's still there.
(edit) On Fri 26 Oct 2018 google maps shows it gone but both show some grayish brown covering on the new lawn.
