Oct20 20:14 I know this may not be of general interest, and I won't report every time it happens, but 10/19/18 at 1456 PDT had a 65-second burn on 95.7. Not stable enough to ID song, and the only decipherable item was "vailable." Only mentioning this because it's the first such that I've received here. - Rick SE WA (

Oct19 22:44 I mean, a loop for a week before going silent would be fine. But KPHF is on half of the 88.3 freq... > Yakima CN96 (
Oct19 22:42 Ridiculous. A loop of 'mudado mudado mudado' for over a year now? It would have been better for 88.3 to go silent while VCY was trying to acquire it. When KXOT Tacoma (91.7) stopped the 'KUOW2' service in 2012, it went silent for several months before it reappeared simulcasting TVW television. > Yakima CN96 (
Oct19 22:30 It is still running the "La Campesina se ha mudadooooooo" loop, though. -Raymie (
Oct19 18:10 I haven't tuned it in in a while. -Raymie (

Oct19 05:59 George/K5TR: I sent an email to you, and once again WELCOME and THANK YOU ... Mike/cm87 (
Oct19 04:42 Yak, to elaborate on your earlier question, probably the only Walla Walla station I'd even have a chance to get is the 97.1. Like here, lots of low power there and some frequency duplication in both towns. - Rick N6KCR SE WA (
Oct18 22:07 wdbd (
Oct18 21:35 [20:15 additional] I seem to be line-of-sight to KDRK Spokane, and get traces of KPBX? 91.1. Haven't gotten 92.9/98.1/101.1 there yet. KDRK is equal strength to higher elevation 6 miles away but rest are weaker. - Rick SE WA (
Oct18 20:40 [20:15] No. When I visited my sister-in-law in March, I wondered about some translators. Terrain issues. Some stations that are virtual locals six miles from here are MIA here, like Moses Lake's 100.5 and Moscow ID's 90.3. Will that leave more freqs open for Es? I'll find out eventually. - Rick N6KCR SE WA (
Oct18 20:15 [1700] So you aren't able to get anything from Walla Walla or Tri-Cities at that site either? > Yakima CN96 (
Oct18 20:10 [18:52] George, this year two people in charge of websites I visit often (this and passed away. Fortunately, both live on, thanks to successors who believe in their missions. Wish I'd had the expertise to step up, but I'm glad you have. - Rick SE WA (
Oct18 20:05 Thanks, Gary, that's helpful. Very unusual for October, but persistent high pressure and expected inversion have had me wondering about it. Mainly see this during summer heat waves or Dec./Jan. - Rick SE WA (

Oct18 17:04 ...16:52 Absolutely, Thank you George! Gary.... Boise DN13 (
Oct18 17:00 [05:07] No, no McCall. I'm shielded from many distant signals here, except for Spokane's 91.1/93.7, which are much clearer in the Heights a few miles away. However, I am getting quick but lout Ms pings on 95.5. Much louder than I ever got from Seattle. But isn't this Oct/Nov shower known for brief bursts? - Rick SE WA (

Oct18 07:12 [0507] Have you heard any fadeups from KUJJ McCall ID? They aren't too far from Lewiston but across Hell's Canyon and the mountains, so I don't know. Star 95.5 with soft rock. > Yakima CN96 (
Oct18 05:07 Been recording 95.5 since Monday. Some very intense pings, but nothing long enough to be helpful. Encouraging, though. - Rick SE WA (
Oct18 05:05 [23:15] Agreed, Gary. It's just the contrast between the couple of big guns and the rest of the flea power. One 25KW, otherwise extremes. - (
Oct17 23:15 ...2259 I would imagine a substantial cost savings electrically speaking with regard to a 500W vs. a 50kW, especially with a limited target audience Rick Gary.... Boise DN13 (
Oct17 22:59 Odd thing about the Lewiston ID/Clarkston WA area: most facilities are translators or fully licensed facilities at 500 Watts or under. Obviously owners feel they can cover the area with little power and transmitters near town. But we do have a 25K, 99K and 100K, whether all that power is needed or not. - Rick SE WA (
Oct17 01:54 I have never heard KCLB, even on the west side of the state where 93.7 was relatively open (pre-KLSY of course). > Yakima CN96 (

Oct16 19:51 Nice catches, Gary. I'm going to lose 95.5 soon, so recording to see if I can log any Ms before that freq succumbs to AM revitalization. Haven't heard anything when monitoring live, but hopeful I'll capture something. - Rick SE WA (

Oct11 20:57 Hello all, I have been working to keep this site going. Still more things to work. (
Oct11 20:49 Sorry...Mike-CT (
Oct11 20:48 Re: 20:07 Nope, because we have our own BB. We had a successful IRC chat for many years, but people moved to FB and FB Messenger as time went on. I know people hate FB but there is a huge TV/FM Dx community there in two major groups...Watchdogs and TV&FM Dxing. (
Oct11 20:20 Things are already scattered-with a board, Facebook page (I have no desire to do Facebook), etc. The WTFDA board is set up much like this one, but with password login and archives. - Rick SE WA (
Oct11 20:18 Gee, Rick, don't know. But I hope not. Impractical for skip, and I think it would just scatter folks around. Going to numerous places seems countrproductive. And, again, no archive. But maybe I'm talking to myself. - Rick SE WA (
Oct11 20:07 ...any thought to launching a chat room within the confines of its own website? -- Rick in South Omaha EN21af (

Oct11 18:52 Mike, good point. IRC over SSL defeats that in 99% of those cases, except where a client would be blocked in the browser. JJ in EN82 (
Oct11 18:49 unfortunately the ability to have 'guests' or 'unregistered' users is a giant spam AND security hole JJ in EN82 (
Oct11 18:49 All recent comments are true. I'll throw one more in. Many companies block IRC traffic because that is typically how botnet command and control issues edicts to infected computers on a network ... Mike (
Oct11 18:48 IRC is nefarious if you're on a large network - such as EfNet. If you run the IRC server yourself and keep riffraff issues. JJ in EN82 (
Oct11 18:47 thus negating the security risks mentioned. Also could easily code in text color changes, realtime log generation,etc....pretty easily. JJ in EN82 (
Oct11 18:45 I wouldn't use a flash application for that - there are a lot better web based IRC clients (and much more secure as well) - This eventually would be the route i'd take, except i'd host the IRC server and the webpage myself. JJ in EN82 (
Oct11 16:35 One last comment and I'll shut up (for now.) If we go to numerous separate sites, people won't find each other and we may not get the info we need when we need it. - Rick SE WA (
Oct11 16:31 Better to use a client like Mozilla's Instantbird and connect directly via IRC than to use a web portal. - Rick SE WA (
Oct11 16:28 By the way, many, not all, web-based IRC portals are pretty icky and not all that trustworthy. I don't include this one in my assessment because I'm not familiar with it. - Rick SE WA (
Oct11 16:24 Thing is, we need a central place, and that potential central place already exists. Rick, I do appreciate your efforts, though. Still, I'm convinced that eskip and IRC chat aren't a good combination. Not trying to slam anyone's preference, but it requires too much attention and IRC chat is ephemeral. - Rick SE WA (
Oct11 16:20 The pre-existing WTFDA board would be better because posts would reach more people at their convenient access times, plus the availability of archives at all times. Currently archives back to 2013 are stored there, and they're organized by month and year. - Rick SE WA (

Sep29 23:33 And definitely a two-antenna with phase is remarkably advantageous, but for many people it's not an option; it's certainly helped me--frankfrank EN40 (

Sep29 19:24 At (1645) Les N1LF is spot on..... A Two antenna system is a hugh advantage Gary Boise DN13 (
Sep29 19:16 Since I am only 20 miles from the antenna sites of local FMers, I typically null the Intermod and overload using beam heading, banpassfiltering and phasingto be able to receive weak signals....a must for Ms Gary Boise DN13 (
