LOG BELOW UPDATED LAST ON: November 16, 1999
CONDITIONS AND PREDICTIONS FOR Midwest DX!
Based on personal past dx seasons and present conditions in my area.
I'll be going out on a limb with my predictions so bear with me!
I'm not too frequently wrong... :)
PREDICTIONS FOR November 13 THRU November 20, 1999 :
AM DX SEASON IS HERE
And in full force!
Conditions are prime for Southeast and East Coast DX around 4PM
Even as early as 3PM if you are in a quiet - noise fee location.
East coast should fade a bit by 4PM as the Southeast starts fading up.
Between 5 and 7PM you should be able to pick up a bunch of new stations from
the South US. And with a good antenna, much further south to Mexico and Central America.
Depending on your antenna orientation, you might just be able to pick up a few
European stations around 7PM. But they are fairly tough to hear in this part of the US
My antenna restrictions will not allow me to hear European DX anymore.
At any rate, DX season is here! (Shut UP and LISTEN!!!!!)
Good Luck and Good DX!

Still busy with many things, but AM DXing usually isn't that HOT until around this time.
So check back over the next few weeks.
DX conditions are strong! I just haven't been able to take advantage of the conditions
Due to high noise levels at my home QTH
But I've limited the noise to a certain extent and can resume listening.
On the car radio I was hearing a lot of good DX.
I caught "Mighty 1190" from the Shreveport LA area 11/12 around 5PM
And WOAI 1200 San Antonio, TX was strong and clear
(But they're 50,000 watts!)
I should be logging some DX over the next few days.
I'll keep interested parties updated here, so please check back.
This page is under construction. December 14, 1998 is my last official logging of a "cool catch"
Great DX conditions at sunset for SSS
Logged 1580 WLIJ Shelbyville, TN at 7:00PM
(thank you Mr. Bryan Turner W8LN for pointing out my erroneous logging
of WLIJ's state as KY and not TN!)
