hi, superb list of dx there but Clyde 2 is not England but Scotland it is local to the Glasgow area.We Scots are very touchy about being classed as England.. but praise is due to your superb list.I still am waiting for my first T/A dx with my tecsun 606 but it will come!!

Hello To All,

Decent propagation last evening despite the high static and noise levels early on that dissipated later.

The first Trans-Atlantic signals appeared earlier than past nights and this session of Dxing became a marathon of sorts for most of the evening and an early morning rise also yielded more good DX.

After almost 3 weeks at this new location , the trend clearly seems to be, hardly any domestic stations are audible from the rest of North America until the wee or early morning hours. The band here from about 20:00UTC until then has been a countless supply of strong Trans-Atlantic signals , many at local sounding levels. Most evenings from St. John's the trend was TA's early on and then domestics taking over. Location Location as they say !
