Did someone catch the e-mail address? I got ?? 'freq [at]hotmail.com', but was there something before the "freq"?

Otherwise in short, the snail-mail address is :

The first hour was perfect, then unstable for an hour and after 2010 UTC there was no signal left. Max. 30.26 dB SNR and 58% decoded audio (calculated over the whole log).

The e-mail address is kwtfreq[at]hotmail.com. Imagine the don't even have their own e-mail domain?!

@Zyg: I looked in the HFCC list and the 13 MHz transmission seems to be thought for USA according to the CIRAF zones and the 15 MHz for Europe. Did you try 13.650 MHz yet?

PS: I still owe you an answer to your latest e-mail!

Hi Terje,

I have tried but nothing received on 13650 kHz at my location.

The latest HFCC shows the KBD 13650 kHz beam direction as 350° which is too far north for the Eastern USA (but might be OK for the West Coast).

This frequency, 15540 kHz, has a much better heading of 310° and according to VOACAP should be very good towards the end of the broadcast period.

Unfortunately the reports on this thread show the reception to be poor for the area. Interestingly, contrary to the VOACAP prediction, Clint in Brazil is getting a great signal.

Maybe their antenna beam directions are different from that published?
