    As in the past days, I have a trace of a carrier, but no decoder mod reads.
My zone is dead to their antenna and so is the LHH.
It is interesting that they then pass across the ocean.
2145 music on pics.

- Hi Ray: I wrote about the poor reception of these stations, because in the initial period of their operation, their signal level was always very high. At some point their signals became residual regardless of the time of day or changes in propagation.
     Hence, I conclude that they have changed their NVIS-specific antennas to radiate at a low angle to areas outside of Europe.

Maybe the antenna of The Vault is a beam towards USA, but surely not the same for LHH.

BTW, LHH is not on the air tonight.
