All AB today within 10 minutes.  Notice how the propagation seems to favor a particular region at a certain time.  Interesting.


btw,  Riviere du Loup...   River of the Wolf,  another cool NDB name.

We've noticed that frequently with the DGPS beacons as well.

While it was true that AB was in at that time, so were other areas.  I was working live this AM, and noted the first AB (X2 329).  I opened up a list of ABs and started checking for ABs unlogged this season or all time.  I was able to log a couple more before it was time to get ready for work.  All in all a productive morning.

I have always been partial to Medicine Hat, Alberta, Portage La Prarie, Manitoba - where they had to carry their canoes over the prairie between bodies of water - and Qu'Appelle, Saskatchewan, because it's an unanswered question.

About Riviere du Loup: I bet you don't get as excited about the Wolf River, near Oshkosh, Wisconsin.  ;) ;D

TY, pv!  YHK shows up here about once or twice a year.  Checking every day possible is the key.

IF you need YUT Repulse Bay NU this tough one has become far simpler now that YLD has recently slid up to +415 exposing YUT on +405.  It was in very solid this AM around 1100.

OK, tnx for the info on 335 YUT.  That is a tough one here as ZKF Kitchener seems to hold down that freq.
Also looking for 350  RB Resolute NU.  Have got DF in NL and NY in BC and RG in OK on that freq, just need some propagation to the north.
