I have found a number of LW beacons and of course WWVB at 60 Khz but I have yet to be able to hear the Morrocco station. I have a 250 foot end fed running the parameter of the backyard fence. It works OK at 40 meters, very well at 80, and exceptionally well at 160. My receiver is the SDRPlay RSPdx.

Longwave is really fickle band I was just getting all this QRN
tonight on there and realized the boot warmers I had in my
UGGs were causing it unplugged solved! they will have to dry
later....LW can be tricky...73,s Marcy
