Most likely you are hearing some IM mixing products caused by strong local MW broadcasters.  If these are there during the daytime hours, that is most likely the case.

Just about every LW DXer use a LPF prior to their receiver.  I DX with mainly an 8 foot amplified vertical whip, and I use a 550 Hz LPF before the RX.

It's old school and discontinued, but emits no EMI, requires no batteries, and adds no clutter to the monitor display.

I have seen many longer distance logs, but this is admittedly a fur piece.  Landlocked Chicago does not benefit greatly from any water paths with the exception of the west coast of SA, and that helped a bunch here.  IIRC the listed power of NAS is 1 kW, which does not hurt a bit.

10680km   holy shit!  Nice one.

Thanks!

This was grabbed from a recording in SDR Console.  I record 2 Gig 44 minute long files.  I use a program called Pskov which leverages the fact that NDB are time repetitive.  The code will do auto correlation on a given offset and present the results to the user.  It does a great job of detecting NDBs which are near the noise floor.  Here is the cap from that reception:

Yes, that was one of the papers. I also recall another, I believe by a Canadian DXer (his name escapes me).

Dave Clark was Canadian.

Does not look promising for tonight, we'll see.

Still gotta play the game.

I wonder if you are referring to papers published in the Fine Tuning "Proceedings" in the late 80s early 90s by John Bryant and Dave Clark?  They analyzed reception of primarily 90M PNGs and Indos and hypothesized that some form of whispering gallery or chordal hop prop model could explain why some stations could be heard at far distances but be inaudible at intermediary points.

As for LF, I have no iodear what's going on up there.  I kinda believe a commonly imagined model in which there is not an actual hop at a presumed reflection point, but rather a low angle "brush by" of the earth's surface.

Conditions over the last cupla days have been very good at times, but I have not been able to capitalize on the dramatic N and NE props others have been seeing.  I have spent the better part of this morning trying to push my reception envelope out past GRL by looking for ISL and a couple in the Azores but no luck there.  I HAVE, however, been noting excellent props to SA the last 2 nites.  I have logged 21 from SA the last couple of nites, and have once again logged the NDB down in Puntas Arenas (>10000 kM) so I am not complaining.  Those are just the cards that Chuck and the other Great Gods of Propagation have dealt me.

Things were awesome if you lived on the right coast.  Many TAs logged in Nova Scotia, and even one Russian.  Here in the Flatlands great reception from South America, but not much from the East.  Chuck Norris prob don't like me.

EPH 245 is new and has not been positively nailed down.  They say it is local to Seattle, and that EPH may mean Ephrata.
