Listening in Oklahoma overnight


The last two days I've managed to add a new country and some stations
to my log. Times are UTC.

11/11/08 1313 KQAQ 970 Austin MN with ID and country mx (SRF-T615).
1317 KJLT 970 North Platte NE with local wx, Christian mx.
1854 KWBW 1450 Hutchinson KS with local ads, ID and ABC nx at
1900 (SRF-T615). Thank you Kirk Allen for this one.
11/12/08 0151 PJB 800 Bonaire ATN with Spanish until 0159,Radio Trans
Mondial ID at 0200, followed by Christian program in
English and Spanish, with KQCV & XEROK QRM (SRF-T615).
0205 WMC 790 Memphis TN with classic country mx and "WMC 79"
ID, with R. Reloj QRM (SRF-T615).
1300 KBUL 970 Billings MT with Fox nx, followed by local
wx (E100).

Had a heterodyne most of last evening on 621 kHz through KMKI and CKRM
620. It was strongest at about 60 to 70 degrees. There was a trace
Spanish language audible at 0635-0641, but DF favored Mexico.

Also heard JOUB 774 Akita J 11/11/08 1018-1108 with man talking in
Japanese. Again on 11/12/08 0952-1012 with time signal and English
lesson at 1000. Both times received on a barefoot SRF-T615.

Heard JOIB 747 Sapporo J 11/12/08 briefly at 1021-1022 (barely
audible) and again at 1027-1028 with woman speaking in Japanese.
Received on a barefoot, factory aligned Etón E100.

Around local sunrise on 11/1108 and 11/12/08, I've heard to a
noticeable heterodyne on 972 kHz, at time quite strong. DF puts the
signal at around 325°. I've listened on the SRF-T615 and E100 but
heard no audio. However, it let me log the three stations on 970 kHz
listed above.

I've also heard a het on 828 kHz, but WCCO 830 has been too strong to
hear more.

Conditions are very good at the moment, so tonight may be a good time
to DX.

Happy DXing everyone.
