Sep 9, 2008. Sat out in the yard in a lawn chair this night at 0030 UTC (2030L), with a 15 foot wire clipped to the whip antenna of the Eton E1. Tuned for carriers and found a strong one on 555 Khz. Turned out this is ZIZ Radio, Basseterre, on St. Kitts & Nevis. Audio was weak and generally undecipherable, but definitely Caribbean. Latest WRTH has the power of this staion at 10KW. Distance 1973 miles. A good haul.
Sep 18, 2008. 1800 UTC. WIEZ, 670 kHz. Lewiston, PA. Daytime station, 5.4KW. Distance 160 miles. Eton E1 with 70 ft. wire on ground and RF Systems magnetic balun.
Sep 18, 2008. 1810 UTC. CFOS, 560 kHz. Owen Sound, Ontario. 7.5KW. Distance 192 miles. Eton E1 with 70 ft. wire on ground and RF Systems magnetic balun. This station is up on Georgian Bay. Strong signal for the distance/power. Part of the path is over Lake Ontario, which helps.
Sep 18, 2008. 2045 UTC. ZIZ Radio again, 555 kHz, St. Kitts & Nevis. Weaker carrier this time, but audio was in there 90%. Recovery was best on the Eton E1 using SyncAM, DSB.
