Band still in pretty good shape here early this morning other than a large number of static crashes.  Not sure where they were coming from as there is no T-storm activity showing on the WX radar for 1000+ mi from Michigan other than some convective activity in western Missouri.

Anyway, good DX in all directions:  north 396 YPH Port Harrison  QC 1112mi
                                                   east   356 AY   St. Anthony  NL   1420mi
                                                            390 JT    Stephenville  NL  1249mi
                                                   south 391 DDP San Juan  PTR     1945mi
                                                   west  400 QQ   Comox  BC          2031 mi

Band conditions excellent here in Michigan early today, logged 121 NDBs including a half dozen new ones for me.

Most of the action was to the west, however, did hear 254 5B Summerside PEI about 1000 mi east of here.

248  WG  Winnipeg  MB
269  UDE Delta  MB
284  QD   The Pas  MB
300  YIV   Island Lk  MB
317  VC    LaRonge  SK
356  ZXE  Saskatoon  SK  (new)
368  ZP    Sandspit  BC  (2320 mi best DX)
370  YBV  Berens River  MB
400  QQ   Comox  BC (new)

Eventually some heavy local RFI/EMI brought things to a halt but otherwise an enjoyable morning on LW.

The band conditions were unusual before dawn here in Michigan.  Overall noisy and the regular "local" (within 300 mi) beacons usually heard were either very weak or not heard at all.

However, propagation to the northwest was pretty good.  344 BKU Baker MT (1070 mi, best DX) had a nice signal as did 379 DL Duluth MN.  365 AA Fargo ND was booming in here.

Other than that, only a so-so morning on LW today.

Good LW NDB band conditions here in Michigan again this morning :).  Logged 101 NDBs, including about a half-dozen new ones for me.  Reception was excellent in all directions except to the north.
In many cases was hearing 2 or 3 beacons on the same freq at the same time.  Even managed to pluck 4 beacons out of the wall to wall warble in the DGPS band: 289 YLQ, 299 HW, 300 YOG, 317 ZZR.  Florida was well represented with:  257 SQT Melbourne coming in over local 257 MB Saginaw, 326 PKZ Pensacola on top of 326 Wiarton ON, 332 FIS Key West beating out 332 QT Thunder Bay ON, and 344 JA Jacksonville neck and neck with 344 YGV Havre St. Pierre QC.  Best DX was 332 FIS 1256 mi. but 3 of the new ones for me: 344 YGV Havre St. Pierre QC, 395 ULS Ulysses KS, and 400 FN Ft. Collins CO were all 1000+ mi.

Was only able to listen for a short while this afternoon but band conditions were excellent.

The following Quebec beacons had a good signal in here, a pipeline to the upper St. Lawrence:

340 YY Mont Joli
360 PN Port Menier
392 ML LaMalbaie

This was still daylight here in Michigan, nearly an hour before local sunset.
