Thanks LG!

Got all those.  The only NZ left for me to log is BE 394; never had any luck with that.

169
Nada here also.

Huh? / Re: I love you all
« on: July 11, 2019, 2111 UTC »
Ever since I read the initial post, I have been afflicted by the jPlane "Pretty As You Feel" earworm.

Coincidence?  I think not. 

I need a new drug.  (Let's see if that works)

Better now.

Thanks, LG!

Will throw a Kiwi remote on these freqs.

Phase 2 of the Canadian NDB Massacre is sked for 10 October 2019.  This will open up a couple of possibilities.  NA listeners will have a real shot at LT 305 (Alert, NU) due to the sked closure of YQ 305 (Churchill, MB) which dominates here.

Noting that my local DGPS pest Mequon 304 is currently off, but it is no the the time of year to capitalize on this.  IIRC, Mequon is due to go off in the fall.  Good riddance, and bubbye now.

From your description of his takeaways, I think the author nailed it on both regards.

A veteran NDB DXer did a study of RNA logged NDB distance vs month of the year.  There was a definite peak around October.  I cannot find this post at the moment, and I cannot remember if this was for logs at the listener's QTH, for NA, or for the northern hemi.  But this is true for observations from here in Chicago.  When the season starts around September, it helps to be ready and have your bucket list prepped and goals set because things get going fast.

This does not preclude long haul DX at other times of the season.  For Chicago, the longest DX will typically come from Brasil and 100 watters at around 8000 km may be heard sporadically thru early March.

While there are generally geographical clusters of reception noted during sunset enhancement conditions, by far and away peaked reception due to sunrise enhancement at the TX is one of the most powerful NDB DX scenarios.  Because Chicago is situated on the middle coast of the USA, SRE reception of beacons from AZ to GA is noted as the sunrise terminator tilt changes with the seasons.

Last season, general NDB DX conditions were anticipated to be very good due to low solar activity, and no one was disappointed.  We are really looking forward to a repeat of conditions this coming fall.

Goals here include Iceland and Argentina, and we are hoping that the great gods of prop cooperate.

174
Nice catch, Skip!

Kinda looks like the face of a Squid.  Not a Jellyfish.

And definitely not a Cyclops.

175
Might be a good time to consider going back to the Beacon and Arrow system.  This should be easy to fold into Infrastructure Week the next time it comes around.

All gear is down here due to a recent lightning strike, but have been sampling Kiwis across the USA and CAN with generally good signals.

Also checked in at a cupla my fave overseas NDB Kiwis:

Bjargtangar, Iceland with a surprisingly nice signal at times.
Carlow, Ireland with JBA audio from time to time.
Pedro Juan Caballero, Paraguay noting a carrier from time to time.

Thanks for the show!

FWIW; there's also a bit of lightning QRN up in ISL tonite...



0330 "...I come from the land of ice and snow..."   still able to listen in AM mode via this remote; very impressed with how you're getting out tonite.

yes...PT 283 is gawn

On the plus side:  I believe that YQ 305 (Churchill MB) is sked to go off in October which will allow a shot at LT 305 in Alert NU.

TY LG!

The Canadians are all the usual suspects; there were a few in this freq range which are difficult at this time of the year in the USA, and were not logged.

The toughest logs were actually the NDBs in the SE USA (NC, SC, VA, and GA).  These are all low power and are tough to hear through the storms which are are generally active at this time of the year.  I lucked out and stumbled on a great short opening to the area.

I have lately been DXing via many of the Kiwi remotes around the world to satisfy my NDB Jones, and have made many visits to Kiwis in NZ and AUS.  Very interesting down there!
