Arctic DX Summit - Day Three

We expected nice conditions towards North America this night, and they were quite good, starting at around 2330 UTC on the upper half of MW and fading out around 0300, half an hour after sunrise. It is interesting to note that on the lower part of the MW band, signals became audible a lot later.

Conditions mostly towards the eastern part of North America, as is standard procedure these early weeks of the season. Ohio and Michigan stations came out on top on many frequencies.

The windy weather yesterday calmed down in the afternoon, and in between logging Asian and Pacific stations we found time for a reindeer stew with assorted cheeses for dessert.

Light breeze, mostly cloudy and 10 Celsius this morning at 0600 UTC.

Nice to see Roadster shows interesting data in real DX situations. Did a lot of testing but only under limited conditions. In October I'll be at Walsoorden with a few beverages.

Guido: As far as I can see, Roadster is stable, so I have "assigned" it to deal with the 310 beverage. I still use Jaguar Classic on the other PC (340 beverage).

are you benefiting from all those absent Russian txs?

Bjarne Mjelde said...

Tim: Partly, yes. 1450 is now almost wide open after Monchegorsk-1449 disappeared. 1520 is cleaner too, but a less interesting frequency. Otherwise not much difference.

What program did you use to create that neat waterfall display of the MW band? Does it work with the Winradio
Excalibur Pro?
