April 2019 NDB logs.
« on: April 28, 2019, 0537 UTC »
April has been a fair month for NDBing but I am still yet to break the 4,000km barrier this way, and not through the lack of trying, with the summer storm season over the noise level has decreased and thus I hope to achieve better distances.

The beacons logged around the best distances, I tend not to bother with anything under 2,000km unless it's an ATNO for me which are few and far between:
