WINB 15670 kHz KiwiSDR Reception at Point Reyes National Park, CA

VOACAP indicates that reception of the WINB DRM portion of the datacasting combo should be a little better this month ( 1700z attachment 1).

The strongest signal (colour white = S9 + 10 dB) is off Newfoundland in the North Atlantic. The Colour key goes down to the lowest shown (colour brown = S5). All this references a 6ft vertical whip receive antenna.

It also indicated that the WINB signal might be received, from the rear of the beam, in the most western part of California at the Maritime Historical Radio Society's receive location in the Point Reyes National Sea Shore Park on the California Pacific Coast NW of San Francisco (the little brown coloured blob).

Attachment 2 shows that there was a little decoding, this afternoon, during the last half hour of transmission due to the excellent commercial receive antenna (that has more gain than a whip)!
