KBRW 680

Best signals I have seen yet from KBRW, totally in clear @ 2110. Greenland is HUGE on 650 as well.

Anything from KCBF Fairbanks 820? I see the carrier but it's too weak for audio here.

I've got the flag pointing at 30 degrees towards the far east at the moment. I can see the KBRW carrier even so! Conditions to the far east are poor at the moment so I will put it back to 330 degrees after 1900.

I turned my flag and KBRW is no better. What does that say about my wonderful half-sized bent flag?

I hear KBRW, but it's much weaker than previous evenings.

I cannot believe I would ever type the following sentence .... "I have stopped logging 680 KBRW as it has become so regular." Remind me I said that sometime.

Amazingly, KBRW did not totally fade out this afternoon. I saw the carrier right around the clock. Audio peaked at 1600. Once again, this is unprecedented here.

It's back, loud and clear this evening. Fading in at 13:00. (Wwhen the flag was aimed at 030 degrees). Peaking fair at 1900. (With the flag at 330 degrees!)

... Possibly the strongest I have ever heard it at the moment.

Had them this morning. KBRW peeped in for a few minutes, just after 0711. A children's choir, quite characteristic // webstream.

Any ideas on the other station in the background?
Good DX.
