HFDL Northern Crossers
« on: December 10, 2011, 2245 UTC »
11387khz HFDL sigs penetrating from the frozen Northern reaches today  including:

Delta173(JFK to Tokyo) at 63N, 96W (over Nanavut)
Continental 133(Paris to Washington) at 60N, 61W
Continental 115(London to Newark) at 59N, 43W (by the tip of Greenalnd)

8947u (canarias)showing signs of life for first time in a while including AT 733 over sothern France.

also strange signal bursts on 11184u, unable to ID.  Usually an HFDL freq, but these are not!

Even better today on 17919khz, stretching ever farther North.

Korean Air 82 (JFK to Seoul) at 70.24N, 82.54W

Air Canada 015 (Toronto to Hong Kong) at a frigid 79.21N, 114W.  Don't get much more Northern than that

I like listening to the aero bands.

One time I had headphones on and was listening to 5574. San Fran. was weak, so I had the volume up reasonably loud. Air Canada 080 called them with a QTH nearly straight above me at FL 320. Aiiiiieeeeee! My ears! :o :D

/funny story

Peace!

LOL, can definately be dangerous listening to these stations if you're near the coast!  One of the few HF advantages of being in StL, safer on the ear drums!
