Feb 15-16 and 16-17 were fairly good in DGPS Land. Processing last night's IQ files now, it does not look encouraging so far (0400z).

From an NDB viewpoint, the 16th and 17th were very good.  The 16th had props to deep into BRA which is very difficult from Chicago, and the 17th had some of the strongest props from NU I have ever seen.  The numbers from last nite did not look encouraging, but I am going thru the recording now and I note strong props from northern BRA and good props from the PAC after 0800.  Logs later...

A couple of ALS also.

Recent Logs from Downers Grove, Illinois

I guess we can copy PACs here in the midwest...

DA is at this point still unknown and has been heard in NS, IL, and TX in that order in the last week.  It is believed to be a beacon at the Calcanhar Lighthouse near Natal, BRA.  Local BRA DXers are working to verify this via close in listenening and email to the responsible agency.
