Apr25 02:25 You should check out the intermod my G5 gives off at 102.5. 3 locals all at once. It's horrendous and almost makes my ears bleed, literally. A radio with 150khz filters and good selectivity/sensitivity should take out that problem. > Yakima CN96 (

Apr25 01:31 intermod so bad that KONO 101.1 had an RDS decode on 102.9 - de WA5IYX (

Apr25 00:28 Yakima you are right about the PL-380 it has a very weak tuner when trying to DX Tropo. - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (
Apr25 00:26 I need strong tropo or Es to overcome the overloading channels here. - de Jon in FN03 (
Apr25 00:26 I think there may have been tower problems that were fixed last year. - de Jon in FN03 (
Apr25 00:25 all my other radios I have except the Tecsun PL-380, Sony and HD Jump overloads like crazy on some ajacent channels here - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (
Apr25 00:24 It's just the first adjacents that are blocked with the overloading. Each local (97.7, 101.1 & 105.7) used to spill onto 6 frequencies, even on the Sony. - de Jon in FN03 (
Apr25 00:20 but when there is Tropo or Es on the ajacent channels next to the overloading channels the Sony and HD Jump's DSP adaptive filtering must kick in because the overload fades out alowing the station to be heard. - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (
Apr25 00:20 It overloads the locals no matter what direction I point the dipole. - de Jon in FN03 (
Apr25 00:14 my Sony XDR-F1HD radio overloads a little bit when pointing antenna in direction of a station 2 mi from me. - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (

Apr25 00:08 My Sony XDR-F1HD overloads my closest locals at 3 mi here. - de Jon in FN03 (
Apr25 00:00 and the Sangean ATS-505 with no DSP adaptive tuner chip may have overload problems in your location - like the G-5 does - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (
Apr24 23:53 the HD Jump has fast RDS readout that comes in handy when you need to ID a Es signal quickly before signal fades and it has HD and is only $21.00 on ebay - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (
Apr24 23:49 also the Sangean ATS-505 does not have RDS readout and it is not a HD radio - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (
Apr24 23:46 because that Sangean ATS-505 need 150khz filters it has no DSP adaptive tuner chip. - AMFMTVDTVBRLA em40 (
Apr24 23:42 just remeber this Yakima, the Sangean ATS-505 need 150khz filters but the HD Jump do not have or need filters because the DSP chip does the filtering and adapts to reject co channel and overload better than those old 150khz filters. - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (

Apr24 08:51 being able to record half the FM band during an Es opening with the Airspy is nice de Mark FM29 (
Apr24 06:14 The only two things that makes the Airspy better on FM is that it has lighting fast RDS and PI codes and that you can see more of the FM band at one time - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (

Apr24 05:59 SDR receivers like AirSpy is the wave of future DX. but the Sony and HD jump can receive weak signal on FM just as good as the AirSpy does - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (
Apr24 05:52 Yakima, those portable radios had their hayday. A true HD tuner like the HD Jump or Sony HD radio or the new car radios with DSP adaptive tuners will whip the pants off off those portable radios IMO - amfmtvdtvbrla. EM40 (

Apr23 04:17 Are the Onkyo and Denon quiet on first-adjacent frequencies (non-IBOC), or do they splatter a lot? Since I have no second-adjacent frequencies left below 92.3, that's a HUGE plus for me as there will be openings where the MUF is educational band only. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr23 03:34 [02:35] Onkyo, no. Denon TU-1500RD. I knew something wasn't fitting right. Had to scour 12000 emails to find it. ... Mike (

Apr23 02:31 Hopefully that Onkyo has an outlet for a 9 or 12V AC/DC. I'd enjoy putting that radio in my bedroom and setting up an outdoor antenna. Trying to get more serious with Es this year. I have 399 logs so far overall, Es/Ms/Tr/LOS. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr23 02:24 I think it was Onkyo...could be wrong. Still kept an old laptop for the RDS decoder program too ... Mike (

Apr23 02:22 If there was no HD, I would still probably be DXing AM as well. Once I hit 1700 stations, IBOC closed in on me. Now FM too ... Mike (
Apr23 02:18 Back in Seattle, 8 new Es logs in one day was absolute excitement. Heck, even getting 2 new Es logs. Had HD Radio not been invented, there would have been WAY more Es logs when I lived in Seattle. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr23 02:17 Yep - I have spent my 7 years in FM DX with portables, whip antennas, and lots of HD hash and FM bleed. No way will I have a Sony XDR radio in the NEAR FUTURE...but maybe I can save up for one and get an FM6. Only 1 station here has HD (90.3 KNWY) and that is a huge benefit, compared to the 20+ in the Sea-Tac area. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr23 02:15 Dave also has the equipment and a lot of experience. You have unbounded optimism, but you're trying to get the gear and the experience. It takes time ... Mike (
Apr23 02:09 Yeah, I should. Dave is 150 miles south of me however and when he has skip, I usually are getting close to having skip or are having skip at the same time. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr23 02:07 [01:28] Sooner or later you'll have to stop comparing your experience with Dave's. Its apples and oranges ... Mike (
Apr23 02:06 [00:54] That is the model. Its a car radio and I let a car stereo guy install it, so I can't tell you what jack it has in back. ... Mike (
Apr23 02:00 Darn it - I threw out my old rabbit ears years ago after the DTV switch. $90 Terk FM50, or one of the indoor Antennacrafts held to the wall, or an FM6 with a tripod on the balcony for directional reception. That's the 3 options I have for the HD Jump. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr23 01:54 Yakima, you don't need a outdoor antenna. you can use an old TV rabbit ears connected to a balun matching transformer - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (
Apr23 01:46 Yak, I cut a FM dipole and duct taped it to a PVC frame that I could rotate. It worked pretty good with my PL-390 RobSC em93va (
Apr23 01:45 Yes, I'm starting to get serious with FM DX!! > Yakima (
Apr23 01:45 Ah. Looking at the Terk FM50. Bi-directional, 75ohm imp., and with the HD Jump I could point it any direction. Wonder if pointing it toward the SW works for Portland FMs. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr23 01:28 Is there a small outdoor antenna that can fit either my bedroom, or my balcony? FM6 may be too large, but I know Dave Williams down in Redmond (OR) used it for years and had hundreds of Es logs. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr23 01:24 Again, amfm, I have no outside antenna that can plug in to that HD Jump. But maybe I can put a small antenna in my room or on the balcony. Let me check. Otherwise I have to get a radio with a telescopic whip. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr23 01:22 Yakima there is a new ebay selling page of the veston HD jump radio here - amfmtvdtvbrla. EM40 (
Apr23 01:05 However, I'm worried I can't plug in that particular type of car radio into an AC outlet, and likely not into batteries. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr23 01:04 Of course one of the best car radios I've ever dealt with was the one in our 2010 Toyota Corolla rented from Hertz when it was practically new. Drove that to Wapato from Bothell for vacation, and is the only radio I've seen that can receive KBLD-91.7 Kennewick right next to 10-mi away KDNA 91.9. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr23 00:57 The reason why I want a second radio is to have a secondary unit, and have an extra frequency to monitor when doing unattended FM DX. I may have a voice recorder going strong at 96.5, but there could be Es that reaches only 88-89. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr23 00:54 Mike: Which one? MP54? And will it fit an ordinary 3' telescopic whip antenna? > Yakima CN96 (

Apr23 00:27 also asking the same question on Radio Discussions as well, as there are DXers with the PR-D5. Thanks a bunch, KOLU, for screwing up my last open frequency in the edu band. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr23 00:26 I'm looking at the Sangean PR-D5 as a replacement for the not-so-good PL380. Wonder how the FM selectivity/sensitivity is against locals. It's REQUIRED for me with zero open frequencies below 92.3. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr22 23:56 I'm researching hard right now. Trying to find a 2nd radio (prefer something that would separate strong FMs VERY WELL), that has very good FM reception up to 110 miles (Pendleton OR), and is not more than $150. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr22 23:55 as far as DSP, it depends what circuitry it's used in (audio, i,f,, etc) - de WA5IYX (
Apr22 23:52 cosnumer ratings are seldom made by FM-DXers who have a different set of criteria - de WA5IYX (
Apr22 23:46 Could it be caused by strong Yakima FM signals (e.g. KATS is 66 dbu), or is this a flawed unit? Worried that it won't even notice weak Es now. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr22 23:42 The G5 would usually get something on 96.5 and 97.3 (most likely KJAQ and KIRO). NOTHING on either channel on the PL-380. What in the world? I thought the reviews were 5 star. This looks like 2.5 stars to me. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr22 23:41 OK...what is the issue with DSP radios? Checked KQFM-100.1 Hermiston OR (80 mi, 5.2KW). G5 is almost perfect with some noise. PL380 is a threshold signal. ??? Not happy with this. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr22 23:01 But it opens up four or five new low FM channels, and I am satisfied. Will be ready for Es season. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr22 23:01 I do notice something disappointing - 89.3, 94.7, 97.1 are TOAST because on the PL-380, it seems to create "spurs" of locals 200 khz up, and in the case of 89.5, 200 khz down. 89.7 is clear. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr22 23:00 Got my PL380 today. KRBM is weak, but there on 90.9 from Pendleton OR. No KYPL slop. > Yakima CN96 (

Apr21 03:24 Changed my mind about the KA-333. The seller that has two or three Olympus voice recorders up for bid said I could probably just use a 3.5MM male-to-male jack to plug into the recorder and the G5/PL-380's headphone input. > Yakima CN96 (

Apr07 23:42 Wind shear causing concentrations in "pixie dust" (micro-meteors and/or gasses in the path of Earth's orbit) N8NU (
Apr07 23:41 @N8UUP - I agree that wind shear could be a factor, it it's nearly 100km up N8NU (
Apr07 23:38 Now, if someone in Missouri were to get DX from Connecticut, whilst a tornado stuck Ohio, that could arguably be a "sign" N8NU (
Apr07 23:36 A tornado directly over the station one is DXing would certainly not be the source of the Es - the Es actually happens over a point *between* the DXer and the DX N8NU (

Apr07 23:28 Mike, I hope that you get several new logs this season on FM. And if you have to, head to a part of San Fran that is full of local multipath. There will be openings where most of the target area is on a local freq. sometimes! > Yakima CN96 (

Apr07 17:04 Eric: I don't know the science of Es, so I can't disagree ... Mike (
Apr07 16:53 Tornadoes often follow along very strong fronts, so perhaps the sudden change in temperature along said front may have something to do with it. de Eric B, Carleton, MI (
Apr07 16:52 Mike, it may not be Es per se, but perhaps a narrow temperature inversion that opens to the E layer; that could also explain why only one makes it across. de Eric B, Carleton, MI (

Apr07 16:31 And an empty band from 88 to 107 followed by a 107.1 from 1300 miles away with a tornado right on top of them is just a coincidence? Think there's more to it ... Mike (

Apr07 15:11 I have no faith in the belief that tornadoes cause Es. Sure we see warnings when Es is up. That's because it's summer. (

Apr07 04:15 In 2006 (or 07) I had a station from OK on 107.1 with nothing else on the band, and a tornado warning right on top of them ... Mike (
Apr07 03:12 You may be right... a little bit. I don't recall Es happening when Moore, OK was having that huge EF5 in May 2013, but the monster one that hit El Reno caused some OK-Ontario FM skip. > Yakima CN96 (

Mar29 01:46 Only local that gives me problems during heightened cx is WRIF; I was only able to get around them ONCE. So, 101.1 has only two stations logged. 101.1 was the last one to have only one listed. de Eric B, Carleton, MI (
Mar29 01:44 I tend to stay away from aiming northward, as Detroit usually overloads that way. Toledo usually isn't as bad, but then their stations seem to run less power than the Detroit giants. de Eric B, Carleton, MI (
Mar29 01:42 We also have 700 watt WOTL from Toledo on 90.3, but that's always the first one to fall when conditions are elevated, so they're only in when cx are dead. Usually during morning tropo, WBCL clashes with WOTL. de Eric B, Carleton, MI (
Mar29 01:41 We lost a few FMs to mostly KLove drones around Detroit, but thankfully they're north of here, and most of the DX comes 90-270° so it *could* be worse. de Eric B, Carleton, MI (
Mar28 22:28 Remember, I lost 88.9, 104.5, 106.1 and 106.9 to (mostly) worthless translators. Just in the past month! A DSP-chip enabled radio is required now for <92.1 DX > Yakima CN96 (
Mar28 22:19 Not too many xltrs here, either. Only 95.5, 97.1 (still off the air) and 101.1. Also 250 watters on 92.7 and 101.3 just across the state line in Angola. These behave like small class A's due to terrain and tower height, but my dial could be much worse-- EN71 S. Michigan (
Mar28 22:12 Locally, only 93.7, 102.1, 103.3, 104.1 and 105.7 have HD. Makes the first adjacents nearly impossible when pointed NW, but strong enough Tr brings them in-- EN71 S. Michigan (
Mar28 22:10 Coldwater is far enough for any larger cities that there aren't many major obstacles on the dial-- EN71 S. Michigan (
Mar28 22:04 [16:19] My location of Coldwater is a great DX place, but I maintain that Hillsdale Co. may be even better-- EN71 S. Michigan (
Mar28 21:59 You cannot defeat locals in Yakima. Even if an opening with 222 mhz MUF and 7/6/2004 wipeout conditions happen, there will be little to no effect on KATS 94.5, or KDNA 91.9, or KDBL 92.9. They are way too strong...KATS is 65dbu! > Yakima CN96 (

Mar28 17:08 WFDF's a monster, and WXYT and WWJ are close by (Can see WWJ's towers by night,) and WNZK's close by also. One thing CBS has going for it is they keep their tx sites up and the stations more or less behave. de Eric B, Carleton, MI (
Mar28 17:07 Carleton's a decent place to DX FM -- a good directional antenna can overcome quite a few locals. Aim it just the right way I can get around most of the locals. AM, though, is a different beast altogether! de Eric B, Carleton, MI (

Mar28 16:31 I'd estimate that I receive about 50% less dx here than I did 16 miles NW in the hills of plymouth (
Mar28 16:29 I've made many dealer trade trips to columbus, always enjoyed fiddling with the knobs on brand new cars during that trip. Figured out that a few of the det fms can be heard there JJ in en82 / romulus mi (

Mar28 15:59 I've found the Saline/Clinton/Tecumseh area to be a pretty good semi-local area for DXing FM JJ in EN82 / Romulus MI (

Mar28 01:14 That is, I have IBOC from both DET and TOL. And I'm not going to bring up the open channels wiped out by Windsor turning on all those FMs in the past decade! de Eric B, Carleton, MI (
Mar28 01:12 Yakima, remember that CRL is between DET-TOL, so I get double-whammied by IBOC; yet, I do decently. If you can aim away from the sticks, you should be able to DX decently. de Eric B, Carleton, MI (
