Jun24 06:51 (03:39) And then there's the "150 mile TV antenna" -- I think the only way I'd receive stations from 150 miles away is via tropo DX. Kegan EM26TE (75.120.143.173)
Jun24 06:32 Tr Tr WAKY-FM - 103.5 FM Radcliff, KY took out my local WGRR. Rob Cincinnati EM79 (208.102.95.142)
Jun24 06:19 Tr WVEZ - 106.9 Play Saint Matthews, KY Locked in HD. Rob Cincinnati EM79 (208.102.95.142)
Jun24 06:11 Tr WNTR 107.9 Indianapolis, IN locked in HD with 2 to 3 bars. Rob Cinvinnati EM79 (208.102.95.142)
Jun24 05:21 There's been a pirate on 87.5 somewhere in the Nashville area...270 degrees azimuth for me. It plays instrumental music. Been theme to "Downton Abbey" lately.- Wes em66 (72.106.159.96)
Jun24 05:17 Tr 107.9 WLNK Charlotte, NC "The Link" 284 miles- Wes ke4twi em66 TN (72.106.159.96)
Jun24 04:46 Hearing a new local pirate? on 104.7. Playing short classical pieces that all feature a local cellist named John Stuart. No IDs, even at TOH, but with ads for a nearby Mexican restaurant. - Jim-F SATX EL09qn (72.177.237.141)
Jun24 04:37 [03:39] Bad, but compare to this cleverly-worded 1990 ad./cdEL96--> https://www.milk.com/wall-o-shame/dish.html (172.56.27.170)
Jun24 04:35 It may *only* work in the Gulf./cdEL96 (172.56.27.170)
Jun24 03:48 I think I will buy one so I can go to the Gulf of Mexico and watch FREE TV! - JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.70.92)
Jun24 03:39 The person who owns this company should be in Jail for fraud & on A&E's American Greed - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9K3kQeji4E (68.11.147.202)
Jun24 03:38 This was definitely NOT caused by interference N8NU (172.56.11.145)
Jun24 03:37 Very strange: "anti-tropo" knocked out ALL Detroit UHFs for about 10 minutes (just long enough to wipe out the weather forecast), they're back now (172.56.11.145)
Jun24 02:53 Tr 93.7 WQIO with BAS Broadcasting mentions - Christian EN82 Ypsilanti, MI (69.136.136.142)
Jun24 02:49 (02:44) The 94.1 is WHBC // playlist - Christian EN82 Ypsilanti, MI (69.136.136.142)
Jun24 02:44 Tr 94.1 with Adele "Send My Love" mixing with Duke FM - Christian EN82 Ypsilanti, MI (69.136.136.142)
Jun24 02:02 Tr 88.9 KLDN Lufkin TX "Red River Radio" with station ID, weak... Jack, EM10, ATX (107.77.105.122)
Jun24 01:17 [22:26] Mountains make it difficult for "thru" ducts to form, because of turbulence from altitude differentials. Thermodynamics at work...--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun24 01:13 (21:25) Would that have been EN71? - Christian EN82 Ypsilanti, MI (12.220.146.1)
Jun23 23:57 Bearing to that tower/antenna farm is almost precisely 180 degrees at my new location--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun23 23:56 The least blockage in any of the blocked directions is the south, so the Sears Tower (I refuse to call it the...) signals are not dampered all that much--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun23 23:55 Only something like 85 degrees to 140 degrees bearing is free of blockage from the rest of the highrise building itself--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun23 23:54 Even if I decided to DX from Chicago (in a highrise that puts me well over 700' ASL) and had that pipeline into Detroit, I'll never hear any of them because of wicked co-channel allocations--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun23 23:48 [21:38] Actually 705 feet ASL where I am. I'm not in Chicago yet--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun23 23:47 [21:27] Do tell us! What did'ja hear?--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun23 23:46 [21:21] During that opening there was indeed some Texas stuff as well, but really nothing between like Arkansas/Oklahoma, not a trace--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun23 23:45 [21:21] Hey that's happened only ONCE, ever, lol--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun23 22:26 I don't think the Boston Mtns in Arkansas really *get in the way* - JimT/MO (70.195.70.92)
Jun23 22:24 21:49 - Hmm, I have logged NOLA dtv's before. Most have 950-1000' towers. My elevation is right at 1300'. So a straight line to the NOLA towers with tropo? - JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.70.92)
Jun23 22:19 (22:02) I hope not. -- Kegan EM26TE (75.120.143.173)
Jun23 22:02 I worked all day. Is the Es season over? - JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.84.86)
Jun23 21:52 [2149] My problem is Detroit is that way from me, and every other frequency is clogged with either HD fizz, translator drones, or a combination of the two. And it's only getting worse. de Eric B, Carleton, MI (68.54.251.109)
Jun23 21:49 [21:42] now I know why I don't get any Tropo to the north. It is like there are Mountains in my way to the north and that = No Tropo - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (174.255.133.7)
Jun23 21:49 [21:41] Very well./cdEL96 (172.56.27.170)
Jun23 21:42 Carleton is about 610' ASL. At least, that's how high the grass strip airport is, a few miles outside town. de Eric B, Carleton, MI (68.54.251.109)
Jun23 21:41 The West Coast stuff you're seeing is more than 15 minutes old. Only a desert to PNW path exists now. ... Mike (216.75.233.210)
Jun23 21:38 So, I honestly don't think it will last another season. They don't make 'em loke they used to; old one lasted about twenty years. This one, about seven. de Eric B, Carleton MI (68.54.251.109)
Jun23 21:38 Wow, just saw DXMaps; good thing I didn't have VCR running. Waste. West Coast however, go for it!/cdEL96 (172.56.27.170)
Jun23 21:38 My elevation in my location is 56 ft. The elevation in Chicago IL 594 ft via wikipedia. Now I know why I was not going to reach that Tropo Duct Frank had - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (174.255.133.7)
Jun23 21:37 I might talk to the antenna guy about raising my antenna a few more feet. I think the rotor's going on the fritz anyway -- it rotates clockwise fine. Counterclockwise, the whole structure shakes and it turns VERY jerky. de Eric B, Carleton, MI (68.54.251.109)
