Honolulu on 518 kHz NAVTEX 1029 UTC 12/24/2012
« on: December 24, 2012, 1417 UTC »
After failing to hear SAQ overnight, I left the Perseus on 518 KHz for the remainder of the morning.  I was surprised to find these in the YaND logs:

Chris - the distance to the Honolulu transmitter site is 4,321 miles.  I suspect this is the only way I'm going to hear Hawaii on medium wave!
