Recent logs from Downers Grove, Illinois

A nice opening to the NW this AM.  I have never had any luck with 326 DC or XJ, and both were there at the same time this morning.

I had a good opening to the NW as well on DGPS, two stations from Alaska. This morning not quite as good, but still got one station from Alaska and even got Hawaii.

2018-10-14  0957  415.0  SLS           +1021    Salinas, , EQA  4945 Km


With propagation remaining especially good to the South, been trying for this one all week but CBC Cayman Brac
owns this frequency here in the pre-dawn hours.  Did manage to pull out what may be DJD Canton GA from underneath.
Sounds like the DJD is sent as all one string with no break between the characters.

@pv:

Yup;  DJD is smearing 'em all together.

Afer GPI 309 (CLM) and PAL 365 (EQA), SLS 415 is the most common SA NDB, but it is still a bit early in the season for reliable copy of SA beacons.  There are several other NDBs in SA and the Carib on 415, and as we get deeper into the season SLS will become a bona fide major pest.

@Chris:

The NDB community has been very excited the last few days because of great props and the promise of great things to come.  Most veteran DXers are logging new beacons and that has the DX blood boiling.

Looks like 204  GB buffalo is still on the air.  Have not heard it here in a long time.
Should be an easy catch for me right across the Lake but rarely hear it at this QTH.
