far east dead this evening?

Post by pe1etr » 24 Oct 2017 20:49

I have assembled a flag (indoors)
Nothing from the FE. Is it me or is MW not working well this evening?

No, probably it's the ionosphere which is not working well. Conditions blew out.

I could just hear the time signal from HLAZ on 1566 at 1900. Nothing Far Eastern other than that (apart from Urumqi 1521 of course).

My 1500 to 1800 was killed by noise so I don't know what happened at the time of the blow-out, but I thought I could just hear the JOIF 1413 time signal penetrate the noise at 1700.

Thanks John.

Hopefully TA was poor this morning due to the ionosphere too?

Hello Mark,

Thanks. My room is below street level, the noise is bad but not as bad as I've had before.

Peter
