beautiful Mexican flag flying at the port in Puerta Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico

Introduction: Unless other noted, all times/dates below are in UTC, all frequencies are in kilohertz, and the mode is AM.

This log is for receptions from QTH DL70 (I wrote down DL70N78GJ from my GPS app but Levinecentral shows this is invalid, so I’m sticking with the bigger grid of DL70) off the coast of Puerta Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico. Recording were made with a long wire suspended from two suction cup insulators attached to the glass safety railing on a 16th deck stateroom balcony on the Norwegian Bliss Cruise Ship.
