What Might I be doing Wrong, Or Missing ? [NAVTEX decoding with YAND]
Still trying to figure out why I can't pick up any Navtex using YAND or any of the other programs.
True for when Boston broadcasts, or at any other time or station.
Have an Icom R8600.
Ant. is a simple 60 foot long wire, a Noo Elec UnUn, and then a coax run up o the house.
Live about 20 miles due West of Boston
I can hear a commercial 590 KHz station just fine, which is encouraging.
But absolutely nothing below that freq. Is there anything this low other than Navtex ?
What really bugs me is that there is a Kiwi operator perhaps 20 miles away that does fine re reception.
Can't imagine what I am doing wrong, or missing. I would think my ant. should do fine, but...?
Have tried on 518 with cw, and 516.5 with USB.
Any reception "quirks" for this low a freq. ? I am not used to playing around with that low a freq., admittedly.
Any thoughts on what I might check, or other suggestions would be most appreciated.
Probably something really dumb, as usual, that I am missing. But really stumped for possible reason(s).
Thanks, best regards,
