Skegness Log: 2016-10-06 (MW Transatlantic & East Asia)

1570 0200 USA WMVX Viva 1570, Methuen MA. Must be using day power. YL ID and lively
              jingles just after the hour.  Weak  5210 km

1296 1700 TWN BCC News Network, Tainan (TN) BCC 7 note jingle on the hour V weak  9753 km
 891 1800 TWN BCC Local Tainan, Tainan (TN) BCC 7 note jingle on the hour, audible
              under Netherlands V weak  9753 km

It was a struggle to hear anything today. So it was a surprise to hear WMVX on 1570 at 0200 and the Tainan transmitter later in the early evening. JOIF's time signal was present on 1413 at 1800 too, but too weak to hear speech.

DXLC are boldly stating that the geomagnetic field whould be quiet for the next couple of days. We'll see!

Good DX!
