I stumbled onto ADK completely by accident yesterday morning while trying to identify a faint Trans-Pacific broadcast station on 531 when I noticed some code fading up on 531 & 529.  Turns out it was ADK.  I'm using a new DKAZ terminated loop @ 270 from West Michigan and the MW stuff it is pulling in is pretty nuts.  Here's the reception:

Nice one Kat !

Amazing being able to pull out the beacon on the same freq as the AM station in Brampton ON.
Your antenna must be very directional.   :)
