236 YHK Gjoa Haven NU...  nice one !    Ice Pilots NWT season 2 episode 1,  check it out.
Been trying to log it here,  good to hear it is still on the air.

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.

Finally got 350 RB  Resolute Bay  NU this morning.
DX has been real good here this week.  :)

Looks that way.  Actually, most of this was from a 2 Part CLE between Christmas and New Years.  In Part 1 you chose a bearing, and logged up to 10 NDBs in each state or country crossed by that bearing.  I chose 150 degrees, and that line would cross IL, IN, KY, TN, NC, SC, GA, CUB, BAH, CLM, BRA, and PRG.  I did not include the logs from USA in this post, and only added those from Cuba on south.  In Part 2, you had to log as many NDBs as possible which are above the Arctic Circle.  Most of these for me would be due north in NU and are in the post.

This was a fun event, and there is a listener in TX who is rocking it with logs from South America.  My NY Resolution is to try to hear as many of these as possible.  As we approach the solar min, this will become easier - hopefully - with time.

The Great Gods of Propagation seem to be giving up Greenland right now, so you gotta strike while the iron's hot.
