Due to numerous solar flares, lately propagation from your part of
the world to the Netherlands has been very poor indeed.
Despite the high sensitivity of Linrad's waterfall display, nothing
at all could be found from NDB QY-263, Sydney, Canada, Nova Scotia,
for four consecutive days. This is my main propagation marker for
Canada and it's absence is very rare.
The last couple of days, propagation has somewhat recovered and last
night, I had marginal aural copy of QY-263.
It was a big surprise to find that I had also aural copy of your 5W
EIRP signal on 477.700 kHz, though static was fierce. I have
attached a Linrad overnight plot.
Best regards and 73,
