unid 305
« on: November 27, 2019, 0145 UTC »
Heard a Canadian with a rather longish DAID just before midnight GMT (11-26)
on 305.  Could not get a solid ID but the last letter was "T".
Conditions seem rather quiet tonight for a change.

Maybe.  However, upon doing some more research, it appears that LT is very rarely heard here in the States
(like practically never).

Definitely heard a signal that sounded like a two-letter call.  Can rule out YQ in Manitoba that formerly ruled
the 305 slot as it was to be decommissioned in October.
 
Listened again about 3 hours before sunrise.  Band conditions were very good since it had been raining steadily
all night thus quieting the noisy power lines of our (expletive deleted) utility.  Did hear a carrier on 305
but that's all.  Tried again on the greyline before dawn but the neighborhood had awakened by then and too
much RFI.

Hopin' it was LT, but Z1 in Three Hills AB is the current dominant on 305.

Have never logged the AB beacon here.
Yesterday was the first time having heard anything on 305
since YQ has gone QRT but cannot confirm it was LT.

I feel like I logged LT once when I lived In Shasta Lake CA, I wont say that officially though unless I can find it in my logs, seems like something I would have posted.
If I did, it certainly wasn't a strong signal
In another life, I could have been a telephone engineer.
