950 ft LoG antenna, SDR-14

I am not convinced Argentina is real, since there are only two widely spaced decodes. But it is intriguing, since this setup does extremely well with stations to the south, I get more than twice the number of decodes from Panama. Something to watch as we move into winter.

Agreed; Argentina would be a tough log this time of the season.  In NDB-land, the only people that are hearing SA other than the 2 easy catches have all water paths from their QTHs (Nova Scotia, UK, Scotland).  In addition, only coastal stuff is being reported at this point.

We are at the equinox, and SA DX doesn't come in here reliably until we are closer to the solstice, as you suggested.

I don't think Argentina is valid, mainly considering that the IDs are 001. While its on a split, its tempting to validate it, but last winter I had splits and knew they couldn't possibly be real.

I've had decodes like that, 2-3 that are widely spaced and ID is 001. Semikarakorsk is a common one that shows up here and is clearly invalid.

Excellent point.

The LoG is somewhat irregular in shape as it runs around the perimeter of part of the yard (lawn and wooded area). I could run it further back in the woods which would make it even somewhat larger and enclose more area. Maybe a project for the Spring. It's fed on the south side right now. According to the LoG design website:

Quote
The direction of maximum azimuth response, at low elevation angles, is normal to the feedpoint.  For example, if the square loop is arranged such that its sides face the cardinal directions of the compass, and fed at the NW corner, the strongest azimuth response is to the NE and SW.  Experimental results confirm this behavior.

I am not sure that's what I am seeing.

My experience is that I am getting many more decodes from stations to the south (and north) vs the NE "beverage".  (Not really a beverage at 300 kHz)   I have no idea what the actual directivity of that antenna is, either.  Actually I am getting lots more decodes in general, except that it does not want to pick up stations from Europe, or the Pacific NW / Alaska. Which is what I would like it to do.  It does seem to be a magnet for Panama though.

Might be able to go NDB hunting since they are more plentiful and see what you get.
