Conditions last evening started out rather blah with Transatlantics in early again but somewhat weaker. than previous evening. Then later on around 10 PM local time here things got interesting. Managed to log 12 more for the Robert Ross 30 day challenge which brings the count to 191 stations after 5 days.
Bagged 2 new ones which included a new state, Texas and another country , Tunisia. Logged the Tunisia station with the SRF-39FP completely upside down for the best signal nulling the local on 640 here allowing a clearer signal .
All other logs with the SRF-M37V.
From 1600-1700 khz (extended band) had been hard to dig signals out until last night also
