JJC Tokyo News FAX Received Nov 3

You know the fall DX season has arrived when Southern California has a relatively clear copy on the Kyodo News FAX from Japan. This is the best one I've received in a long time.

Frequency was 16971.0 kHz USB, time was just after zero UTC. Parameters were 60/576.

It's worth repeating that, unlike the weather charts, the news FAX is copyrighted material, reproduced here at a greatly reduced size under fair use for the purposes of amateur radio propagation reporting. Any unauthorized commercial use would probably prompt Kyodo to start scrambling the faxes again. We'd hate to lose the last news FAX on the air for DXing.
