Week 42 by JJH

By the beginning of the week (14. Oct), early in the morning there were reasonable signals from Canada (check of my previous post from 22utc). A little later in the morning, the signals increased further until the sunrise destroyed TA contacts.

17. October 2019

Nothing super special today. Some Latin American stations in the morning, mostly from Argentina. One new for me was ZNS-1 Radio Bahamas. Later some high power U.S. stations from West Coast.

…and some UTE stations logged as well, NDB beacons.
