Two Longwave Beacons

I logged two Morse code non-directional beacons on longwave today. Both are relogs but both are good DX catches, and I`ve not logged either from Toronto before:
  • YLD, 335 kHz, Chapleau, ON, Canada, at 0609-0612 UTC with poor signal.
  • QT, 332 kHz, Thunder Bay, ON, Canada at 0616-0618 UTC with poor signal. My first logging of this was in 2008 from Espanola, ON, which is quite a bit closer to Thunder Bay than Toronto is.
Equipment: Sony ICF-2001D receiver, Sony AN-12 active antenna.
