KLIB to KBND Fade at 0315 utc

A Dramatic Reading on KY6R Radio . . . 

After putting up my KY6R Big Loops – I started receiving AM BCB stations that I never could before. I was very happy to pick up obscure low power stations up and down the West Coast, and even up into Canada, Mexico, and quite a distance Eastward.

That is the fade from a station in Roseville, CA – near Sacramento fading to KBND in Bend, OR. Both are low power stations, and during winter, this fading starts as early as 4 hours earlier.

No surprise here – I was wondering if these stations would even be heard in Summer, and the answer is yes – its just that the D Layer is energized a LOT longer in Summer – and the days are even longer in Bend than in Roseville, so I can hear Roseville a lot longer than I would in winter.
