Alaska Now!

Post by John Faulkner, Skegness » 19 Nov 2019 21:50

Just had a tip from MW DX ace Barry Davies to say that KBRW Barrow 680 is coming through.

I just swung my flag to the overnight position (NNW) and I have a weak KBRW here as I type. Toronto/Boston is/are also there.

Good DX!

... and again this evening with almost fair levels.

For the first time this season I have seen the Solar wind speed drop below "300" in the Jaguar BB applet. Are we to expect better conditions overnight? Time will tell.

Haha. ;) I always used to think the same when you posted. But you also posted about the blow-outs. Yes, I agree 100%. Posting about good conditions usually kills it. I won't repeat what the forecasts say for the next few days. It looks like things are gong to ...... well ..... let's see what happens. :lol:

Great signal from 1420 WOC this morning, IDing as KWQC at times - their TV station. 1280 dominated by WNAM. What's happening your way? Should be some good stuff there, surely?

Certainly is. I am grateful for that here, but Asia has probably done now for the season. It has always tapered off come November/December. I don't know why that should be.

We have quiet conditions again Klaus. Asia is poor, but the transatlantic path is improving.

I can barely hear KBRW at the moment but the carrier is there. It should improve here over the next hour+.

Good DX!

I see the carrier of KFBX Fairbanks on 970. If I imagine hard enough I think I can hear audio, lol. Needs to be better than this before I can log it. No web stream to check against though.

Not sure whether this is still of any use, but Alaska has been in here since 20:00 and still is! Playing a selection of oldies as per their web stream. Peaks are only weak but it's clearer than the last few days.

680 KBRW - now a regular catch! Did I really just type that? I'm still pinching myself.
