Some great Canadian catches there jFarley...probably regulars for you, like New Zealand is this way?  ;)

Yaesu FT-2000D, ICOM IC-736 HF/50MHz, ICOM IC R75 & Tecsun S-2000 to 450 feet of wire, and a multi band vertical of dubious reliability.

TY LG!

The Canadians are all the usual suspects; there were a few in this freq range which are difficult at this time of the year in the USA, and were not logged.

The toughest logs were actually the NDBs in the SE USA (NC, SC, VA, and GA).  These are all low power and are tough to hear through the storms which are are generally active at this time of the year.  I lucked out and stumbled on a great short opening to the area.

I have lately been DXing via many of the Kiwi remotes around the world to satisfy my NDB Jones, and have made many visits to Kiwis in NZ and AUS.  Very interesting down there!

yes...PT 283 is gawn

On the plus side:  I believe that YQ 305 (Churchill MB) is sked to go off in October which will allow a shot at LT 305 in Alert NU.
