Three So Far This Year
I have been listening everyday and hearing a lot of DX, but almost all of it is already in the log. For example, the BBC carrier on 198 was strong enough last night that I could actually hear audio, but BBC on 198 has been in the log since 2012 (5 years ago to the day).
Since the first of the year, I have had three additions to the log:
📶 YAT on 260 kc transmitting 125 W from 'Wapisk' Attawapiskat, ON, 898 miles to the north-northeast
📶 WTEL on 610 kc transmitting 5 kW from Philly, 270 miles to the southwest
📶 WSPG on 1400 kc transmitting 1 kW from Spartanburg, SC, 669 miles to the southwest
All three were logged with the ELAD FDM-S2/FDM-SW2 receiver and the ICOM AH-7000 discone antenna.
