Nothing much happening here at the moment, but one for John in his "daytimeers hunting" mode.

Most nights there is a signal on 1550 that disappears just before 23:45. Offset showing for me as about .0044 . It was stronger last night just before shut down and there was just a faint trace of audio. Anybody get anything from it ?

Thanks Simon.

My mind is all over the place at the moment. Although I have been recording every night for weeks now, I have usually been forgetting to press record until well after midnight. It's easy to run the Jaguar software and let the timer take control of that, but I forget to do that. By the time I have remembered any of this, it's usually 2am.

Looks like I just caught it on the 6th. A carrier is visible at 1550.0049, signing off at 23:45, but Forth 2 will not let it through.

Several daytime sign-offs and power-downs are still visible even well after midnight. How nice it would be to have some kind of weak signal RDS data for these. :)

Not sure if I have a KGA ID on 1510 at 0300? The offset is right. Anybody, anything?

Great signal! I completely forgot to record yet again this morning. At 2am I saw the blowout and so didn't bother.

I was just coming on here to tip that there was an ID at 0617 if anybody needed it, but your signal just blows mine out of the water. All gone by 0620 here.

I will be recording overnight. I already have the software set up, ready! I expect more of a Latin morning than anything else.

I don't see a blow-out on the charts. Probably just subtle changes in propagation. Fadeout here was around 06:30. Or did you get some sudden sensitivity reduction? Looks like conditions recovered fairly well from the yesterday's disturbance https://www.swpc.noaa.gov/products/planetary-k-index Conditions look reasonably quiet again.

I had an apparent daytimer on 1510, but it faded quickly at 23:34. Probably signing off. The station was playing modern sounding R&B/pop.

1470 had WWNN dropping at 00:30. Good signal before this!

Everthing suddenly disappered and didn't return. Can be heard in the video.

Interesting. No official records of a sudden increase in geomagnetic at that time.
