Makes sense... AM radio is so yesterday. :-)

Truth be told: We will always find another barometric station for tipping
us off to good TA conditions.

Years ago, our go to station was the NRK station on 1314 kHz from Norway,
indicating TA openings to the west coast. In recent years, it's been
Absolute Radio on 1215. Now they want to shutter some of the transmitters
and for others, reduce the power:

Colin and Walt,

Colin is quite right about the aurora-enhanced signal of 846-Kiribati tonight. The Puyallup valley is a notorious DU-dead zone, and the IBOC pest 850-KHHO is only 4 air miles away from my DXing spot. Despite this 846-Kiribati made it through with its best-ever audio here (fair) at 0720 UTC (26 minutes ago).

Definitely not up to Kona or even Victoria quality, but I'll take it

I listened to 846-Kiribati sign off at 0900utc. Nice signal and wonderful acapella national anthem.

Will have to listen to wav files for a more thorough report. ;-)

About to go out and try a 1000’ driveway BOG by parking the vehicle down the road aways and walking home in the dark through a scary stretch of wetlands!

Who says DXing ain’t exciting?!
