Your day time catches from Minnesota and South Dakota in the upper
half of the band are amazing!I have caught both of those states on
day time dx while i was in Oklahoma.But, they were in the lower half
of the band.I think your catches on the upper half of the band could
have been residual sky wave propagation.During late fall and early
winter, i am not sure that the d layer ever fully ionizes.This might
mean less absorbtion and allow some weak sky wave to sneak
through.Any comments on this from anyone ?

Congratulation on the new stations logged Kirk. Yes it was a windy
day, which resulted in a long power outage here. But it was a good
day for daytime DX of stations in Minnesota, Iowa and the Dakotas.
The best I've encountered since the 1980's.

Heard a station on 880 kHz signing off in English at 2215 UTC (1715
EST), 12/2/08. I didn't catch the full call sign, but it began
the letters "WR". I found a Spanish language station WRRZ, Clinton
NC, signs off at 2215. However, it might be WRFD, Columbus-
Worthington OH, but I don't when they close down for the day. Can
After six straight days of hearing JOAB 594 at local sunrise, the
frequency was silent this morning. All that was audible were hets
783 and 972 kHz and they were silent by 1200 UTC.
Heard Glas Hrvatske 1134 at 0223 12/3/08, but didn't listen long
because of the KMOX HD noise. Also, heard the carrier on 1521 kHz
until it went silent at 0259:45 UTC.
I hope everyone has a good DXing night.
