September DX In Kongsfjord

September is when the season really starts, although rare stations before mid-September are - rare. The sun has behaved quite nicely with mostly low activity. The 20, 21, and 29 were good dates for North/Central America, Australia has been heard most days, and New Zealand is coming fast.
I am particularly pleased with the new, re-located 310 beverage. The low-MW logs from North America are all from the 310.
The regular stations are not listed as the list would be far too long. New logs in bold.

The Americas:

550 KBOW Butte, MT
560 KPQ Wenatchee, WA
570 CKGL Kitchener, ON
580 WTCM Traverse City, MI
600 WYEL Mayaguez, PR

Sept 10 brought a few nice ones from Japan, such as 549 JOAP Naha, 684 JOAG Nagasaki and 1368 JOLG Tottori. The day after saw 630 KUAM Agana Guam (and heard a few times since). Many ABC stations, especially on low MW heard, 630 becoming something of a regular. The QDFA was the antenna in use. And on the 30, New Zealand finally formally logged with several Radio New Zealand and Newstalk ZB stations heard on the new, re-located 500-metre, 50-degree beverage.

Receivers used: The Microtelecom Perseus SDR and the Winradio G31DDC Excalibur SDR.
