James (KG5JST) in Mazatlan, Mexico

Introduction: Unless other noted, all times/dates below are in UTC, all frequencies are in kilohertz, and the mode is AM. My home QTH is in EM15ep in far Northwest Oklahoma City, but this log is all maritime mobile (on the Norwegian Bliss cruiseship) shortly after leaving the port at Mazatlan (en route to our next step in Cabo San Lucas), Heard at the GPS location of 23°09’52.2″N 106°25’32.2″W.

For this listening session, I used the stock antenna on my CCrane Skywave on the balcony of a 16th Deck stateroom (about 13 stories above the waterline.)
