Thanks, Chris.  The loop is exceeding all expectations, and further improvements are being pushed on the bench.  These most likely will not be deployed until the spring.  Sensitivity can be improved, as can shielding and null depth.

Unfortunately, the Sun is not working well, and being on the downward slope of the solar cycle, conditions have been extremely spastic.  Good openings to the north have been rare, but there have been occasional great openings, however brief, to the far south.

I have been trying to understand - correlate listening conditions with geophysical conditions - and have found an index which seems to explain what is going on.  The last 3 sections of this document explain a theory which seems to jive with experience:

http://www.infotechcomms.co.uk/Understanding_LF_and_HF_propagation.pdf

The parameter Dst (Disturbance Storm Time) seems to explain what is being logged, and it offers a way to predict somewhat when LF propagation will recover from disturbed conditions.  Lately, this has taken around a week after a GM disturbance, assuming that there has not been another event to reset conditions to crappy, which is more likely the norm.  This has helped in tempering my expectations of what may possibly be heard.

I track Dst using the following sites:

http://lasp.colorado.edu/space_weather/dsttemerin/dsttemerin.html
http://wdc.kugi.kyoto-u.ac.jp/dst_realtime/201601/index.html

It does seem that we would like Dst to be very near or above a value of 0 for good DX to the north, at least.  I have compared the archived Dst values for my logs of higher latitude NDB catches in my logbook (Yukon and Northwest Territories, Nunavut above the Hudson Bay) and find a very good correlation.

At least, this has taken the edge off of some of the frustration I have felt at times this season.  The world is complex, and understanding it a bit more is somewhat satisfying.

Thanks for the great explanation, jFarley!

I've added some DST plots to the HFU propagation page: http://www.hfunderground.com/propagation/

Eventually I want to add some text to explain the uses of the various graphs, when I do I will be sure to steal some of your text  ;D

I did find this document on DST and the associated indices: https://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/stp/solar/magindices.html

Thanks for adding those plots; I refer to the HFU prop page several times a day, and having to maintain one less bookmark is OK with me.
It's pretty easy to see the brutal recovery time between 20Dec15 and 1Jan16.

Steal away (Oh Rosie!)  It is to be expected in this den of radio hooliganism.

That NOAA doc is pretty cool!

Great list and some good distances, here in Australia they are gradually closing down the aero NDB beacons, May 2016 will see many more go off the air, pity, as I love my NDB DXing.  No two monitoring sessions are ever the same with the NDB's.

Just using an old Yaesu FT-1000D and 240 feet of wire running around my land nearly in a cube shape, New Zealand is the only big DX so far here with best distance so far to 382KHz WU Wanganui for 2,312kms, best local distance within Australia is to 356KHz TN Tindal NT for 2,797kms.

Keep up the good monitoring...

Grid Square:  QF56dm.

Yaesu FT-1000D, Yaesu FT-2000D, ICOM IC-736 HF/50MHz, ICOM IC R75 & Tecsun S-2000 to 450 feet of wire, 27MHz 1/2 wave CB antenna converted to 21MHz & a multi band vertical of dubious reliability.

The distances that low power NDBs can propagate is always a source of amazement to me.  Here is a cap of YGZ Grise Fiord Nunavut (3860 kM, reportedly 100W) on 365 kHz from an overnight recording session run last night.



As a reference, that little signal to its left is JN Muncie Indiana, a mere 290 kM away.

This image exposes a subtlety with regards to using a ferrite rod loop for long term capture: ferrite has a temperature coefficient.  As the temp goes down, its inductance goes does down.  Thus, the resonant frequency goes up.  And vice versa.

Normally, the temperatures fall overnight, and I usually resonate the loop just a bit below the frequency of interest in the hopes that it will slide through as the temperature changes.  This is what I did as a matter of habit last night.  However, the temps rose overnight and the resonant frequency went the wrong way.  This can be seen as in increase in the noise floor around 364.6 kHz.

My bad, but no biggie.
