recent longwave logs
« on: January 13, 2013, 0600 UTC »
Just when I start to think that's the end of it, I've heard all there is to hear, new NDB's climb up out of the mists and surprise me!  :)  Here are the few I've managed over the past few days.  New job (!) has rather flattened me, but the weekend belongs to the radio.  

01/04, 0425Z, 413 - YHD - Dryden, Ontario  
01/05, 0644Z, 356 - GR 'Famis' - Green Bay, Wisconsin  
01/06, 0953Z, 516 - YWA - Petawawa, Ontario  
01/12, 0912Z, 269 - BEX - Bloomfield, Iowa  
01/12, 1110Z, 365 - TV - Traverse City, Michigan  
01/13, 0440Z, 338 - ZEM - Eastmain, Quebec  

The earlier three were all caught during a DXpedition of sorts an hour or so north of my usual QTH.  I had a sister's baby shower to attend, and took the radio with me for the weekend.  The latter three were just caught this weekend.  

More to follow, hopefully.  

Aha, I was right!  Here are a couple more.  No luck on Euro or African broadcasters though, darn it all. 

1/13, 326, 0815Z - VV - Wiarton, Ontario 
01/13, 392, 0822Z - ML - Charlevoix, Quebec

Congrats on Raize!

Here's a short blog about Raize:

You'll like our Minnesota beacons. Some of the nicest beacons around. 

One of my favorites is AA, Kenie, in Fargo, ND on 365 kHz. That one has been going strong since I first heard it (and used it while flying) in 1988.

We have one lone NDB left in Minneapolis, PPI on 400. Used to have a couple of others, but they've disappeared.
