AND12 -October 26, 2016
AND12 started on October 14 and was terminated today after one of the poorest DX nights in AND history. Overall we are very pleased with reception conditions during AND12, even during the early days just after a geomagnetic disturbance there were lots of DX. The best DX was between October 18 and 25, in particular October 23 and 24 offered unusual stations, some of them rare daytimers.
This year we had an all new setup aiming to remove all noise sources which could be related to our equipment. The all battery setup did what we were hoping for, our recordings have a superb S/N all days and on all antennas, even when compared to our previous setups. We are amazed at the clarity of trans Atlantic signals, be it from low power Brazilian stations or North American clear channel operations.
