Congrats on the two new NDBs!

DGPS conditions have been dismal the past few days, coinciding when the DST index (which you clued me into) dropped.

Please let the NDB guys know if you DGPS guys can find Canada.  Other than the flamethrowers, Canada appears to have disappeared the last few days.  We are very concerned.

Propagation was all to the south over the weekend...  logged 52 U.S. NDBs to only 32 Canadian...  usually the other way around.

The usual suspects from Canada are still being heard here. Not much from BC, however.

Yet more logs from Downers Grove, Illinois

UBY 268 was logged w/o negative carrier keying per normal and a +1017 USB offset.  I could not find a LSB but that is not saying there was none.
The ID stream was very nearly continuous with only a slight gap 'tween IDs.

Recent logs from Downers Grove, Illinois

Two new because of apparent reactivation of a couple of NDBs.  CE 201 was formerly a very tough log but has recently become easier.  SB 397  found when the usual suspects from CA (MOG and FCH) were noted with absolutely brilliant signals.  DX is starting to trickle out of Canada finally.
