AND7 – Tuesday Oct.18

The last antenna project was a beverage at 282 degrees intended for northern South America, Central America, the Caribbean and US east coast stations. The total length is 850 meters. The antenna got off to a great start with another strong evening opening to the northeastern US. WEGP was noted at 19:51 UTC and conditions were truly astonishing for the next 17 hours. Although we thought we had an idea what really good NA conditions would be like, we were unprepared for the signal levels and the incredible number of stations surfacing. At 11 UTC on Oct.19 there was hardly a channel with signals less than S9, and that with a noise floor at -135 dBm (NetSDR, -150 dBm as measured by Perseus) meant that many stations were received with local like quality. For instance a quick check of some channels had XECL way on top of CBW on 990 while KIHH 1400 buried the competition with a loud signal.
