Sorry Simon. I didn't record.

So despondent with recent conditions and a higher noise level after I made adjustments on my flag two days ago that I decided not to bother.

So, in true JF 'Tempting Fate' style, I expected that something good would come through. CORRECT AGAIN! I really can predict the future!

I see that John Marsyla had something exotic on 1380 overnight in the form of KLIZ.

You really cannot NOT record, ever! Just in case you miss something. That's how our hobby works.

Having seen the post from John Marsyla, I also had KLIZ, but at 0500. A nice suprise in what has been a pretty barren season. ALWAYS record !

Pete Tong was out and about in greater London though a KKGM id on 1630 was available at 0600.

KGOW changed to a Vietnamese format recently, so maybe it was them?

Thanks Matthias. I think you could be right. I've listened with better headphones at home and it could be Vietnamese. I had KGOW in my log as "Yahoo Sports Radio", I hadn't spotted the format change.

It seems it was a good night for Minnestoa, The Dakotas and Iowa. After much struggling with my recordings, I picked up a few tips from MWLIST and RealDX and got
1350 - KRNT (tent) - I'm only logging this as tentative. I had a clear ESPN and only after seeing KRNT reported on RealDX I heard Des Moines mentioned before the TOH announcements.
1270 - I can't logging this but some people got KNWT and I had soft religious music fading in and out with the occaisional announcement, but can't nail an ID.

Both around 0500 - Worth checking if you still have recordings (sorry John !)

THE DAKOTAS??? !!!! WOW! Amazing conditions! I just looked at the MW List log for the 8th. So many good catches. A number of Albertans were logged too.

This morning is looking almost as good or even better, if today's MW LIst log is anything to go by. Conditions blew out slightly overnight, but this seems to have lifted things. I note that KALL 700 was logged in Holland. Perhaps some more interesting catches will be revealed as the day goes on.

Hopeless here, though I am trying to make some sense of the very weak talker I have on 1380. I don't think there's anything to go on, but the signal kept surfacing between 0300 - 0500. Offset 1380.0012.

I'm afraid it wasn't a good one for me last night. I may have had the carrier of your 1380, but no audio and 700 just had WLW and nothing else of interest.
