Hello all,

Somehow, yesterday I have forgotten to look at my overnight NAVTEX reception.
Luckily, I just notice it as otherwise an interesting log should have gone missing!

Reception of a few NDB's from Newfoundland was excellent and Amalgamated DGPS decoded 4 DGPS stations from Canada. Cape Norman was decoded 2400 times, which is amazing for this time of the year.

Good NDB reception from Canada does occasionally happen in Summer, but so far has not been reflected in reception from NAVTEX Canada. However, in the night from 29 to 30 May, VON was received on 518 kHz and two messages from VCO 0n 490 kHz, despite a lot of static:


graphic

This is an overnight plot of NDB QY-263, St John's, CAN NS.
On 490 / 518 kHz static will be a little less, though

Hello all,

Poor reception due to ongoing static, which lasted until dawn.
It was quite a surprise to find 25 (!) messages from Astrakhan between about 00:00 and 00:22 UTC.

We had nice weather today, not overly warm. The weatherforcast is not too good for tomorrow: an other spell of severe thunderstorms. As I write this some are already at close range in northern France, about 140 km due south!

Hello all,

Much lower static and hence improved reception.

The path to Sydney, CAN NL, was wide open for hours at a stretch, yet nothing from NAVTEX Canada showed up. However, Amalgamated DGPS showed 95 decodes of DGPS station Point Escuminac, CAN NB and 62 from Cape Norman, CAN NL.

Cormac, though Summer Solstice is near, as long as the path is in darkness DX is possible.
If only the static will go away!

Hi Roelof,

For sure - that's why we keep logging! I've got all my DGPS logs up to date as well now on the DGPS list; no Canadian DGPS stations made my log last night unfortunately :-(
