I have been inactive the last week, and not been listening at all, due to very windy weather conditions just after the last weekend. The storm made spaghetti of my BOG’s at work and my HDLA’s at home, so I decided to usemost of my spare time last week to repair the HDLA’s and re-locate them to my listening post at work. I have winded up the BOG’s and put them in the trunk of the car, so they are now ready for some portable action. Anyway, I assembled my HDLA’s two days ago and they seem to work fine.
Unfortunately, the sun hasn’t been very coorporative this weekend. Conditions is currently useless and there is no transpolar propagation at all on the MW band. This morning proton levels went up and down, and up again. The MW-band was totally dead, except for the semi-local russian stations.
Was listening on shortwave for a while, but there was absolutely nothing of interest. Well, maybe it was Radio Educación in Mexico playing canciones on 6184,9 KHz, but it was very weak and unstable. Besides that, nothing. And auroral flutter on almost every signal that was heard.
NB: I have updated the antenna page on this site. There you will find a more detailed description of my HDLA-system.
