They beam all their 50kw directly north so it should be a relatively easy catch but for whatever reason
their signal on any given night may be weak to unreadable.  Usually pre-dawn is the best time to catch
their signal here.

Antenna: 40m dipole, 20-17-15 meter fan dipole. One of N. Tesla's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production.
eQSL appreciated

Fair signal this morning Tuesday 2-1-22 an hour before our sunrise.
Seems to me this station had a better signal years ago as opposed to nowadays.
