some recent longwave logs
« on: January 20, 2013, 0540 UTC »
I've managed some longwave DXing lately, and here are the results.  New job (!) isn't kicking my butt quite so badly now, time-wise, so I'm actually awake when conditions start to be decent.  If nothing else, there are always the weekends.  

I'm still amazed at the 1/18 catch, though.  How I pulled that off, I do not know.  I'll call it akin to hearing KOA on 850kHz and just count myself fortunate.  Tonight's been crazy for Ontarians, though.  

329, TAD - Trinidad, Colorado NDB, 0532.  Morse ID's with several seconds between.  Signal only audible on a fade-up, slight difficulties in copying.  Signal fair.  SIO 333.  

355, YWP - Webequie, Ontario NDB, 0458.  Morse ID's with dashes between.  Signal fair, audible with slight difficulty copying.  SIO 333.  
350, RG - Gally, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma NDB, 0502.  Morse ID's with several seconds between.  Signal fair, audible under YKQ in Waskiganish, Quebec.  SIO 323.  
334, YER - Fort Severn, Ontario NDB, 0508.  Morse ID's with dashes between.  Signal fair to good, audible along with/underneath YLD in Chapleau, Ontario.  SIO 434.  
224, MO - Moosonee, Ontario NDB, 0518.  Morse ID's with dashes between.  Signal fair, audible alongside and beneath YYW in Armstrong, Ontario.  SIO 333.  

You lot get my full, wordy logs, as I can't be bothered to edit them down.  Heh.  Would you believe we have a Mosinee in Wisconsin?  Similar to the Ontarian city name, but not quite the same.  I've noticed a lot of Ontarian names could be Wisconsinite, no doubt due to the First Nations influences in both locations.  Still surprised and pleased at that Oklahoma City catch, too.  :D  

Edited to add: Aaaaaand one more.  This's also from 1/20. 

278, FD - Earli, Poplar Bluff, Missouri NDB, 1004.  Morse ID's with a few seconds between.  Signal fair at best, though fluttery and subject to some rapid fading.  SIO 323.
