Hello !
I'm new registered to this forum...
Just starting to discover the NDB-band at low frequency from 250kHz up to 500khz

My location is in the western part of Belgium, semi-rural almost flat area, agricultural sourrounding.
Locator is jo10os
My amateur radio call is ON5KQ ...

Last night (5th to 6th of Febr) especially at about 22h utc on 5thFebr, I heard NDB "LT" from most northern part of Canada very loud ! I think the Signal to noise ratio in my 200Hz CW-filter was about 15db or more... amazing!
Also some USA amateur stations heard on 474khz Amateurradio band in WSPR mode. So there seem to be good conditions !

My antenna is a very large EWE antenna to Northwest for the bands below 500kHz - 20m vertical up - 60m horizontal at 20m - 20m vertical down to ground swamp resistor 500Ohm, feeding with broadband matching transformer.
This antenna is much more quit than my 170m Beverage in the same direction and at the same time the giant EWE has same voltage output (same efficiency) than the Beverage.... so really great antenna, which I would recommend for DGPS/NDB band.
The antenna is spanned between two high trees.

I made recordings from last night and will process the files for DGPS decoding and post the results in the DGPS file of this Forum...

regards,

Ulli, ON5KQ
