July NDB log
« on: July 16, 2016, 0848 UTC »
Conditions on the NDB band are good one night and shocking the next, and being winter this way it's hard to sit up in the early hours of the morning when it's minus six degrees outside.  Nearly logged SON on 412KHz Luganville, Vanuatu for a new one but couldn't get the full callsign out for a claim, always another day.  Chatham Islands, off New Zealand was the only new one so far on 322KHz, been looking for this one for some time now.

FWIW, I have been able to hear about half of these - plus many more - via the Kiwi web SDR in New Zealand; it really does a pretty good job.

All good Farley, I am old fashioned, not an internet person, only use it to log stations (dxworld.com/ndblog.html) so not sure what you are on about regarding "SDR" web.  Just use 310 feet of wire, some good filtering on the FT-2000 and a good set of cans (headphones) plus measurable doses of patience... ::)

Summer is the better season over here, except for thunderstorm noise, winter is OK but you get nights where any distance over 1,500kms is hard work.  Spurious and crud from high powered Australian MW stations adds to the work effort too.  All good fun though... ;D
