DIW with fair signal in here this morning,
otherwise not been hearing it the past couple of weeks.
Either the prop is weird or this beacon is sick.

Heard the correct ID, AFK, on the USB this morning.
Carrier still negative keying DAI.

Gave it a listen this morning for a bit, did not hear any CW.
However, heard what sounded like another signal mixing and beating with the TIS.

Was still sending DAI this morning. 
Have only heard this beacon very infrequently through the years
but hear it regularly now quite plainly since it has been negative keying.

Thanks Skeezix for the heads up on this one.

Was able to pull out CFAJ from under 50kw blowtorch WHKW in
Cleveland on the same freq.  There was no nulling the OH station
possible as it is pretty much between me and the Canadian.
The only thing in my favor is that WHKW sends most of its signal
north and south away from me (in fact, it is barely audible here
daytime even though it's just across the Lake from me here in MI).

Heard music under WHKW and got lucky and was able to catch
CFAJ ID at about 0915Z.
Otherwise, 1220 is just a jumble hr at night.
There was a third station way, way down in the mix but WHKW and now
CFAJ are the only 1220 kc  stations in my logbook.

CH, PKZ, FIS all with good sigs today 3-20-21,
propagation southward OK in spite of otherwise
noisy conditions so gave DIW a try... heard it vy weak
way down in the mud just after 0900Z.
This is the first DIW reception here in a month.

Still negative keying 3-20-21  @ 0905Z with
strong sigs into MI in spite of poor band conditions.

Nice work, Joe.   8)

Hmmm, this is interesting, tnx for the update.

It sounded MCW here but could have been beating with 346 YXL which is very strong in here.
Band is noisy this morning, lots of T-storms south central U.S., don't hear it, just YXL.

« on: March 15, 2021, 2250 UTC »
Things started off quite nicely in October and early November with some good listening sessions netting several ATNOs.
However, things deteriorated around Thanksgiving time when the neighborhood Christmas decorations went up.
These are not your fathers' incandescent lights.  Nowadays it is LEDs with electronic drivers, flashers, etc.
along with the attendant RFI. Things got worse around Christmas when apparently some new electronic gifts were
put into service.  The noise is coupled back onto the power line due to lack of filtering in the device and is then radiated.
Along with the local generated QRM, there was a double whammy with a spike in solar flux in early December. This
may be a taste of things to come as solar cycle 25 ramps up. 

My longwave listening habits and emphasis may have to change to daytime DXing from local parks where the LW band
is quiet.

OK, tnx, stumbled upon it Sunday morning 3-14-21 around 0915Z and only heard it for several minutes before it faded out.
Cannot find it in any database, strange.

Big signal from Lexington Park MD in here this morning.
"Your Easy Favorites" sounded like a local, loud with no QSB.
They ID a lot which is nice.

Hudson CO. NJ TIS on 1710 loud and clear signal here this morning just before dawn
with no QSB (probably still on the "temporary" authority) but the audio was almost
unintelligible on certain announcements in spite of the good signal.
