Hi Henny, LF Group.
The beacon was switched off at 0230 to prevent damage from
an electrical storm. It will resume operation this evening.
Thank-you for monitoring my signals, Henny and others.
Do your receptions coincide with off-times for the high
power broadcast stations?
Local reception tests were conducted earlier this month and it was
noted that the beacon was audible at distances of 600 km in the
daytime over a water path at 47 north. At higher latitudes
(about 50-55N) Iceland on 189 kHz was quite strong and prevented
aural reception of the beacon. What I found amazing was that
this persisted even during the daytime. Shouldn't E-layer absorption
preclude transatlantic LF propagation at high noon? There must be
something else at play?!
