It's been truly amazing, Mr. Ganderpoke!

I have most of those logged, plus I'm sure I can see the rest, and a LOT more. You will, no doubt, be adding more stations to your log.

So many carriers I am not familiar with this morning. It's clear who most of them are too, but digging out an ID is not always easy. Some have enough 'evidence' to log, but the rest, hmm. It's tempting to long a lot of "Presumed" and "Tentative", but I will refrain. Well, apart from one or two! :)

What's needed now are lots of hard drives - something I do not possess. So I can only hang on for recordings for two days. Three, if I delete early morning files. My drives are full to bursting!

THE MINIMUM HAS ARRIVED!

Will check this one again. I'm sure it's there, but can I dig out any evidence?

CJOB 680 was booming at 0700 this morning but not much else Prairie-wise. Just as well as going through yesterday all hours will take ages!!

Interference still very bad - but less so at the bottom of the band. Just before 2200 and through to now I'm getting a carrier on 590 with american english coming through now and then and 'smooth' music. It doesn't match VOCM web stream or WEZE or CJCL. A carrier on 570 is slowly growing in strength. So hopefully I'll get some interesting stuff tonight/early morning.
