Skegness Log: 2016-10-04 (MW South America)

1400 0200 GRD Harbour Light of the Windwards, Carriacou/Tarleton Point (cpm) Full ID and
              frequencies Fair  7033 km

1190 0211 CLM HJCV Radio Cordillera, Bogotá D. C. (bdc) Jingle ID Weak  8566 km

A reasonable Caribbean / Northern tip of South America morning. Good signals from the Caribbean Beacon 1610 and WGIT 1660 and lots of borderline audio signals all over the place. I only managed to identify a couple.

940 was an interesting frequency with three South American/Caribbean signals just getting to audio levels. A portuguese speaking religious station was the most frequently heard there, but none of them wanted to ID.

Presumed YVWP 1320 and YVRZ were in at fair levels at times. Noo IDs there either due to fades at all the wrong moments.

Some good news is that the new version of Jaguar, v2.7, has resolved a lot of he issues I had running v2.6. I don't think Jaguar was to blame, but my Windows 7 was the culprit. It's good to have (almost) full control of this software again, but there are now other things which don't work. It's Windows, therefore it can!

Good DX!
