NDB CLB 216 0430z 7/23/15

216 kHz
0430z, 7/23/15
Wilmington, NC

Still hear this beacon at 1500z, in the daytime!(?)

I know this is no big deal, but this is the first
NDB on LW I've picked up.

About 6 months ago I finally bought a decent receiver, Kenwood R-2000.
Never really tried too hard to pick anything out on LW because I thought
a Loop or Beverage antenna was needed.
But with advice I got here on HFU from ChrisSmolinski and jFarley
saying my 100' random wire antenna should work, I nabbed CLB.

Now I'm all horny for LW Dxing!
Hopefully find some more beacons and maybe some Euro's on MW.
I should do ok if I'm hearing CLB in the daytime during summer.
Can't wait for winter time Dxing.

Congrats, flexoman!

I understand the horns; this area of DX is extremely addicting!

Now, somebody make the thunderstorms go away.
