518 KHz Navtex DX: NMO Honolulu, HI.

Posted by kilokat7 on December 26, 2012

I’ve started messing around with Navtex decoding again after giving up a couple of years ago.  This time around I’m using YaND combined with the Perseus SDR and have been achieving nice results during overnight decoding sessions.  Some of the more distant “regulars” are NMQ Cambria (California), NMC San Francisco (Point Reyes), NMW Astoria (Oregon), ZBM Bermuda & NMR San Juan.

I received a DXer’s Christmas present on December 24th with the captures shown below of station NMO from Honolulu, HI. at a distance of 4,321 miles – a new distance record for me.  Times shown below are UTC.
