Overall, the band was not as good here in January as it was last autumn (which was spectacular). In 13 listening sessions during the month, only managed to log 10 new ones for me from my Michigan QTH.

227 YAC Cat Lk Ontario
236 ZRJ Round Lk Ontario
343 YGO God's Lk Narrows Manitoba
356 ODX Ord Nebraska
356 RCX Rusk Co. Wisconsin
362 SUR Fitzgerald Georgia
375 LQ Springfield Illinois
375 GL Gaylord Michigan
387 CAV Clarion Iowa
417 IY Charles City Iowa

Locally, 332 PH Port Huron Michigan was last heard on New Years Day and have not heard it since. This NDB was off the air much of last summer but returned in the autumn but is now silent again.


The band was noisy here most of January but conditions seemed to improve late in the month. A 90 minute listening session on 1-28-17 1000-1130Z resulted in reception of 97 beacons including:

254 5B Summerside PEI
300 YIV Island Lk Manitoba
305 YQ Churchill Manitoba
323 KR Schefferville Quebec
332 FIS Key West Florida
360 PN Port Menier Quebec
370 YBV Berens River Manitoba
390 JT Stephenville Newfoundland
396 YPH Port Harrison Quebec

Any other NDB chasers feel free to post your recent loggings.

Nice logs! Wow-Key West from Michigan-neat DX.
FIS 332 Key West has been heard here several times recently now that the local Port Huron beacon PH occuping the same freq is off the air again. FIS sometimes even covers QT Thunder Bay Ontario also on the same freq. There have been times when all three stations were heard simultaneously... strange what propagation can do.
