Navtex Loggings

We are interesting an interesting period of the year. With winter approaching quickly and the days getting longer I am seeing some good signs. As I type in early October there have not been many transatlantic signals into The Netherlands.

Slim pickings from here. Just the regulars. A few jumbled messages I will have to look more closely at later.

Finally a little joy.

Had another night of Ismailia Egypt.. Woo Hoo.. Whats going on here? The black hole has opened slightly. Also finally VCO appeared here.

It’s still not great but certainly improving.

I went back to the Icom R75 last night on an old Dell Optiplex GX 270 which was lying around in the shed. Might just leave that on 24 hours.. What the heck..

The less said the better.. Very ordinary night here. Heard VOCM early on 590 khz but nothing translated into  Navtex. I need to fine tune and do some more work on the antenna.. Dave H  just suggested I was making some fundamental errors like putting RF chokes in metal boxes. Need to revisit the coax and RF choke situation.. Its not too bad though.

518 khz Riviere-au-Renard

October 3 2011 at 3am

It’s been a while since I was up at 1:30am at the dials but noticed a few of these pesky NDB stations around 518. ARD in Romania which I think is on 517. Its about 1388km from here (Very strong tonight) and WRW Wroclaw about 883 km. Seem to also be getting some type of signal almost right on 518 with a series of 7 dots.. a pause.. then three dots, a pause.. then two.. Its a bit faint and the sequence might be wrong. Just noticed 590 VOCM in  from St John’s in Canada, so might be a few TA’s later.
