AND11 – the first week in review

Propagation conditions varied a lot from mediocre to fair during the week. We had a few really nice openings. The best ones were October 18-19 for La Plata and southern Brazil (very weak European signals allowing DXing in AM mode instead of SSB, actually several stations were much better in AM so that choice wasn’t difficult. We’ve mentioned one of the new Argentine stations in a previous post, from Brazil we noted an amazing signal from Sarandi AM on 1310 kHz) and October 19-20 for most of North America and Mexico (east coast US daytimers were noted before 22 UTC, one example being 1540 where WXEX was the sole station on the hour with a good signal and then disappeared exactly when they should as they switched to the very low nighttime effect). October 22 had a nice opening in the morning on the rejuvenated 286 degrees antenna, for instance 1400 WGIL was noted, and signals didn’t disappear until near noon local time, again with best reception in AM mode.

The current week is looking very good with superb signals all night from North America October 25-26.
