NE Oregon ULR NDBs, Wednesday night

Another night with fairly good conditions, favoring northeastern Canada. Two Quebec beacons heard, for a new 8th province. Static came up around 10:30 p.m. local and kept increasing until it was a problem even with the small receiving antenna. 353 LLD Hawaii was heard around 11p.m.; no sign of 391 DDP Puerto Rico this evening. 402 M3,SK has a non-standard 1020 Hz modulation but has a standard Canadian dash, though the dash occurs just before the ident (DBID) instead of the usual right after the ident (DAID)--a rather unique Canadian beacon. Both Quebec beacons started out as a faint DAID heard; both required sitting on them for about 10 minutes each but eventually faded up to reasonable copy. 222 total. (Trans-polar LWBC 189 Iceland at decent level around 0500 utc but not heard on a ULR or indoor antenna.) :)
