May27 22:59 Tropo is starting to build from the west. starting to receive Beaumount / Port Arthur stations on FM - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.105.8.204)
May27 22:35 @Jack While normally I'd say XHMZI is Monclova, it's more Región Carbonífera than Monclova though of course it reaches into the larger market. It's one of the most formidable station coverage patterns in Mexico - Raymie DM43 (70.176.21.145)
May27 22:29 Heat index was 108F last hour at Austin Bergstrom Intl Airport, summer has arrived *sweatdrop* .. Jack, EM10, Austin TX (107.77.105.54)
May27 22:17 Texas Roy = Roy Henderson, a known violater of FCC rules - Christian EN64 Manistee, MI (66.87.115.159)
May27 22:14 Tr 100.1 WVIB. At least Texas Roy (who also owns WBNZ) did manage to shut off WCUZ's transmitter - Christian EN64 Manistee, MI (66.87.115.159)
May27 22:10 And yes, 92.3 WBNZ is still running dead air (with stereo pilot) - Christian EN64 Manistee, MI (66.87.115.159)
May27 22:09 Tr 105.7 WSRW with no sign of WAPL - Christian EN64 Manistee, MI (66.87.115.159)
May27 22:08 Tr 106.3 a three way mess of WMXG (mostly on top), WGLM, and WWMN. Normally WWMN is on top - Christian EN64 Manistee, MI (66.87.115.159)
May27 22:07 Tr 100.7/102.9/103.7 Milwaukee in strong - Christian EN64 Manistee, MI (loving the less crowded dial back home this weekend) (66.87.115.159)
May27 21:41 I missed the 82F temp & 82F with = showing Fog just off the coast of Corpus Christi TX -amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 http://www.wpc.ncep.noaa.gov/sfc/lrgnamsfcwbg.gif (68.105.8.204)
May27 21:36 80F degree Temp & 79F dewpoint just off the coast of Brownsville TX right now on the weather map - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 http://www.wpc.ncep.noaa.gov/sfc/lrgnamsfcwbg.gif (68.105.8.204)
May27 21:29 McAllen, TX is at 101 F degrees right now. Fuel for good Rio Grande Tropo tonight. - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 https://www.wunderground.com/q/zmw:78501.1.99999 (68.105.8.204)
May27 21:20 yeah Jack I only received Monterrey once here. - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xkS8xYyT3qM (68.105.8.204)
May27 21:12 It would be great if this tropo can go further south for me than just northern Tamaulipas and Coahuila down to Monclova...Monterrey would be nice to get... Jack, EM10, Austin TX (107.77.105.54)
May27 21:01 [20:53] Hopefully we will get some good Tropo conditions tonight Jack. - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.105.8.204)
May27 20:53 Already getting 200-mile tropo to Corpus Christi with 93.9 in before 4pm local time... Jack, EM10, Austin TX (107.77.105.54)
May27 20:48 I'm dropping a line to Life and we'll see from there. 100 kW at 1259 miles - would also be a new frequency as last year a translator was clogging it! - Raymie DM43 (70.176.21.145)
May27 20:44 I know the Christian AC ran a liner with a listener saying "My name is Amber". Is it Life 101.9 Waterloo IA? I can't find another high-power station with that format though a 250-watt Christian CHR translator exists in the suburbs of St. Louis - Raymie DM43 (70.176.21.145)
May27 20:40 That's roughly halfway between the two logs I had last year, KJSR and KWOZ, so KC is definitely in the mix. I can't find a 101.9 with a Christian format in the skip area. I didn't bother trying to get an ID as K-Love is notoriously hard to nail - Raymie DM43 (70.176.21.145)
May27 20:38 The only high-powered 103.3 with a matching format in skip distance is KPRS in Kansas City which would be at about 1047 miles - Raymie DM43 (70.176.21.145)
May27 20:36 So I'm thinking a bit about the two unIDs I had from the Es opening the other day. One was Christian AC/CHR on 101.9 and another was an urban station on 103.3 - Raymie DM43 (70.176.21.145)
May27 20:09 An upper level H system that gets above 1020 millibars in the tropics region will develop intense tropo conitions. The H sitting over the eastern Gulf is right at 1020 mb - de JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.9.146)
May27 20:06 I remember in my Earth Sciences classes when we studied meteorology, a low level H system (near the Earth's surface) will have a very small effect on developing tropo conditions - de JimT/MO (70.195.9.146)
May27 19:58 most of the time Hepburn maps are spot on right. thinking it was like you said JimT, the high pressure area must have been at the surface and not below and that will make or break the Tropo forcast in a given area - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.105.8.204)
May27 19:50 [19:40] Don't know if this Tropo event will happen here overnight and tomorrow morning. last nights / morning forcast was forcasted to be intense here but was not. - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.105.8.204)
May27 19:50 [19:40] Don't know if this Tropo event will happen here overnight and tomorrow morning. last nights / morning forcast was forcasted to be intense here but was not. - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.105.8.204)
May27 19:40 New Hepburn tropo forecast out. I hope you guys along the Gulf coast enjoy the intense tropo overnight and tomorrow morning - de JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.9.146)
May27 19:27 Log updated. Took an hour and 15 minutes to do so - En35 http://www.ubstudios.com/dx/tcfm.html (97.127.6.173)
May27 19:20 Richard, you are correct about KMUW's tower location. It is just east of Colwich. I was thinking Colwich was SW, but it is N-NW of Wichita - de JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.9.146)
May27 19:19 It beats my previous record by a little over 20 miles from Sheridan WY to North Carolina. I'll take it. - En35 (97.127.6.173)
May27 19:09 [18:42] Congrats, En35. Thursday was great and wild Es day for sure. - Jim-F SATX EL09qn (72.177.237.141)
May27 18:50 Looking at FCC query, it appears KMUW & KSNW are at the same location! - RNA/OK (70.215.192.146)
May27 18:47 thats a long one En35. hopefully you will get more - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.105.8.204)
May27 18:46 Coorection: Looking at Google Earth, it shows KMUW in north Wichita - de RNA/OK (97.41.133.68)
May27 18:42 Going through my logs from Thursday, XHAAA 93.1 Reynosa is my farthest Es catch of all time at 1449 miles - En35 (97.127.6.173)
May27 18:32 I believe KMUW shares a tower with KSNW TV & is west-northwest of downtown Wichita - de RNA/OK EM16gj (70.215.192.146)
May27 17:52 That's why its good to use a reliable web calculator and avoid street addresses, city centers, etc - JimT/MO (70.195.9.146)
May27 17:51 I think the KMUW tower is like 20 miles SW of the center of Wichita which adds distance from the east - de JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.9.146)
May27 17:47 I may need to correct what may now be inaccurate distance listings on some of my loggings. Kegan EM26TE (75.120.135.221)
May27 17:45 *statute, not statue. Lousy spell check. Kegan EM26TE (75.120.135.221)
