catch of a lifetme

Sat Aug 2 14:47:22 EDT 2008

The great-circle distance from KENI to WRKO is 3355 miles! That's like
TA distances but more difficult because the path from Alaska to Mass
is over land. I suppose it could still be two hops, though; the soil
conductivity at the midpoint of the path (somewhere in SK?) is quite
high. Doesn't high conductivity at the reflection point make for a
low-loss reflection?

BTW, I just noted on the NRC DX list that a number of Alaskans (KENI
not mentioned) were reported strong last night along the Oregon coast.
I suppose this is auroral activity, but I don't really know what I'm
talking about.
