Jul25 19:59 I've been in Minneapolis for about a year and every tropo opening I've had got me more relogs than new ones. I have a figurative wall beyond La Crosse, WI I can't get passdd. (
Jul25 19:57 Rick, I have to agree with you, if this keeps going like this, Ill be losing a lot of interest. And since I've gone over 2000 loggings in the last 10 years and the increased congestion of local junk stations, when I do get a so-so opening it's all the same stations I've already logged 10-20 times over. Just sayin! Bob-Nj Fn20 (
Jul25 19:42 Gotta look, even though I have white noise fatigue at this point. Good DX can happen in August, but hard to believe it will in a season that just never took off. I sure hope the next solar cycle is better. I'll only live through one or two more. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (

Jul25 18:14 As that ping was rising I could hear numerous stations popping in and out till "Real 92.9" was the only one hanging in there, and long enough for me to hear an ID. An almost 2 minute wave form peak on wavepad. Bob-Nj Fn20wb (
Jul25 18:05 My longest ping ever was more of a pong... 4 minutes! - Matt EN21 (
Jul25 18:03 That MS trail looks like it was reported on 6M DXMaps and 10M PropNET. de dwi/7 (
Jul25 17:57 Would not be a bad idea to keep the recorders running from now until the end of Perseids. I have been getting a lot of pings the last few days. Like a said about years past, 2 or 3 weeks before the peak I have had some long pings. One year had one over 2 minutes! Bob-Nj Fn20wb (
Jul25 17:56 I won't throw in the towel yet. I have seen some great openings all the way into mid-August. I don't have Tropo here so must be vigilant.. :) de dwi/7 (

Jul25 17:47 I wasted more time this year looking for Es that never showed up, so I am done - JimT/MO (
Jul25 17:46 I've decided its time to focus on the tropo season. Es here in MO was a total flush down the toilet. Don't know how it could salvage itself now > de JimT/MO EM37 (
Jul25 17:42 [16:22] I blame BR in AZ going on vacation. We had a great opening then poof!! It was a great year for me 'til July 1 (
Jul25 17:34 Makes one wonder if cx will continue to deteriorate in coming years or if they'll get back to ""normal"" eventually. Tim EM86 (
Jul25 17:25 We've had some great conditions when the humidity was absolutely stifling. But yeah, I haven't heard/seen Indiana or Kentucky in years, much less futher east of that. - Matt EN21 (
Jul25 17:20 I should at least try for the secondary Es season come Thanksgiving through New Years. I've heard MW has interesting cx for this time of year- may switch over earlier than normal. Tim EM86 (
Jul25 17:18 I have had "light" tropo to the north of here (WV, OH) but honestly tropo is so rare in recent years I don't really try. Tim EM86 (
Jul25 17:16 [16:53] Have you had any good trops this summer Tim? Knowing it has been hotter than average there I was wondering. - Matt EN21 (
Jul25 16:53 I'd say its safe to call this season over. Dont think I can stand another month of unattended recordings and let-downs, I may cease recording and monitoring at least til next May. Tim EM86 (

Jul25 16:22 Only five days this season with Es. Two in May, two in June, one in July. And really, only one outstanding Es day this season. Nothing above 95.3, not counting 3 DX hours on June 30 I wasn't available for. Suspect higher MUF during those three hours. But if 3 hours a DX season makes ... it's still a bad season. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (

Jul24 14:20 ...the Big Thompson Canyon flood, estimated 10-15 inches of rain that happened in a couple hours - JimT/MO EM37 (
Jul24 14:19 When the wife and I lived in CO north of Denver, they always talked about the worst flood in Colorado history.... (
Jul24 13:55 It didn't compare to the 7 inch rain in 4/88 in FtWorth or the 10 inch Downtown Houston in 6/76 but it still was impressive. de dwi/7 (
Jul24 13:43 The heaviest rain I have seen was 3 years right after I moved here from DFW. It rained 3.5 inches and most of the main streets were covered in mud. The wash that runs thru the neighborhood closed one street with mud and debris. de dwi/7 (
Jul24 13:40 I live 15 miles from Mayer, and am going to Anthem this morning to drop off the grand-dog. I will get to see Big Bug Creek on the way down. de dwi/7 (
Jul24 13:38 I am amazed what weather can happen here in AZ. I thought Texas was crazy de ka5dwi/7 (
Jul24 06:09 Pictures brought back a lot of memories. I never knew 60-foot palms could bend so far. 90mph winds does that ... Mike (
Jul24 05:58 Oh wow, never heard of that one but it was bad. This is a great history of Arizona's flooding history... (
Jul24 05:21 Actually, was not 1980. A hurricane came up Gulf of California on Labor Day Weekend 1970. ... Mike (
Jul24 05:18 It was heavily subsidized, but the service that ran for a week kept the Valley from falling apart economically. It also was the last passenger rail service of any kind in the Valley until light rail opened in the final days of 2008 - Raymie (
Jul24 05:15 What ended up happening was that ADOT and the railroad ran an emergency train service for a week to relieve the massively poor congestion of those two river crossings. (
Jul24 05:14 Only two road bridges were offering reliable service: the Mill Avenue bridge in Tempe and the Central Avenue bridge in Phoenix. The I-10 bridge even got closed! (
Jul24 05:13 The Salt River was not dammed at that time in metro Phoenix (there's now a dam at Tempe Town Lake) and there were fewer bridged crossings. A lot of road crossings of the Salt literally took you through the river bed. (
Jul24 05:13 As to the Salt River, that was the flood of 1980 — a singular moment in Phoenix history and one never to be repeated again at that scale. (
Jul24 05:11 Yavapai County is higher up than Phoenix and gets more rain. It also has a flooding problem in parts right now because of wildfire burn scars. (
Jul24 05:11 ...Bad monsoon storms earlier, at least for me. Monsoon storms can be pretty darn spotty and localized to portions of the metro area. -Raymie (
Jul24 05:00 [03:06] DWI: I remember a 33-hour period that Bumble Bee (near you) got 18 inches of rain. PHX was cut in half for months with Salt River flooding ... Mike (
Jul24 04:21 [02:49] "Bobby Grich lowers the boom..." captioned under the picture. Interesting. That's an idiom that has rather vanished--Frank M. (

Jul24 01:56 You know, from the subject matter, I'd suspect no one is getting DX..... Curtis (
Jul24 01:03 Pitches are meticulously counted now, but what about throws-to-first to hold a runner? It takes just as much, if not more, energy./cdEL96 (
Jul24 00:59 ...which means that you won't see something like this again/cd-> (
Jul24 00:56 Oh yeah...they instituted the "pitchless" intentional walk this season...>>>/cdEL96 (
Jul24 00:51 You would type red if watching beisbol... (
Jul24 00:48 Would love to type in red, but oh well./cdEL96 (
Jul24 00:47 Catfish Hunter once pitched 20 "CGs" in one season./cdEL96 (
Jul24 00:46 Jack Morris pitching all 10 in the 1991 World Series Game 7---I doubt you'll ever see an accomplishment like that again./cdEL96 (
Jul24 00:45 One could say that wasn't really a "complete game," because it was suspended and was never completed. But yes, pitchers were gamers back then./cdEL96 (
Jul24 00:33 It's shameful when complete game needs to be defined.... Mike (
Jul24 00:05 No complaints from me. My FMBC Es this season de ka5dwi/7 DM34 AZ (
Jul23 23:44 That is why I mentioned pitch count. Doesn't "adrenaline" figure into anything??/cdEL96 (
Jul23 23:43 Get this: Marlins most recent no-no two months ago by Volquez was the first **complete game** (pitcher pitching all 9 innings) in 480 of their games!!/cdEL96 (
Jul23 23:42 Marlins have had 6 of them, and have been on the losing end of no-hitters 3x (including one perfect game by Roy Halladay)./cdEL96 (
Jul23 23:41 Slower now.....Padres (est. 1969) have YET to pitch a no-hitter, and Mets (est. 1962) have had only one..../cdEL96 (

Jul23 23:37 Cubs winning it all in 2016 (after waiting 108 years!!) vindicates him, but the man will never be the same./cdEL96 (
Jul23 23:36 Cubs winning it all I 2016 (
Jul23 23:36 Just search Steve Bartman on the Web. Enough has been written....and the man has been vilified in Chicago....totally unfair./cdEL96 (
Jul23 23:35 They lost the playoff game I went to in 11 innings vs the Cubs. That is forever known as the Steve Bartman series./cdEL96 (
Jul23 23:33 [23:24] not all games, but all series./cdEL96 (
Jul23 23:32 1969 Mets won 100 games---so not such "Amazin'" as they were named. They were good. Especially at the Braves' expense---Mets swept em 3 straight./cdEL96 (
Jul23 23:29 And lastly on Baseball, I think its rediculous that only first 2 fowls count as strikes. Chime in Sherman Oaks (
Jul23 23:28 Well cdel96 if it weren't for beginning of devisional play, the Mets may have come in 8th in 1969, instead of winning a WS. Chime in Sherman Oaks, I was at Shea when Mets clinched Eastern (
Jul23 23:26 [23:11] awww sweet! - Saul (
Jul23 23:24 Did they indeed win all games for two WS titles? Wow... Saul (
Jul23 23:17 Trivia: Marlins are the only MLB team to be undefeated in all their postseason series---6 and 0./cdEL96 (
Jul23 23:16 And even though the Marlins won 2 World Series, it was only because of "wild card," which was unheard of up to the 1990s./cdEL96 (
Jul23 23:14 I miss ol' school baseball---no replay in NYC, no obsession with "pitch count"....I could go on. It ain't the same. I think it was the DH that started it all. Sorry but that's the way I feel./cdEL96 (
Jul23 23:13 After the Sprague HR in 92, I believe that Jeff Reardon wasn't used again; he was ready after warming up, but ATL manager ignored him!/cdEL96 (
Jul23 23:11 The most memorable thing I guess was being on the KissCam with my XYL./cdEL96 (
Jul23 23:09 Chris thanks for posting that moment. Nice to relive it. Been a drought ever since. This year's been a puzzler in some respects (I never expected much from Bautista, though). Saul (
Jul23 23:08 Awesome----I have been to a few MLB games, including a 2003 playoff; but nothing really memorable./cdEL96 (
Jul23 23:08 Yah, that was the one ... I was in something like Row 19 or 21 between the batter and first (closer to 1st). Abso****ingly memorable.) (
Jul23 23:03 I was at the game where Joe Carter smacked the winning WS run with a HR against Philly! Saul ON (
Jul23 22:41 A great Toronto ending in 1993 thought!/cd-> (
Jul23 22:32 That being said, ATL wouldn't have been in the World Series if not for:--> /cdEL96 (
Jul23 22:27 ....and what I called a "chicken ending" when the last batter Nixon laid down a horrible bunt with tying run on 3B./cdEL96 (
Jul23 22:26 ...with ATL's supposed "closer" giving up a HR to little-known/little-used Ed Sprague..../cdEL96 (
Jul23 22:25 Ah a Braves fan in 1992, I proffer that ATL kinda helped him along there...../cdEL96 (
Jul23 22:19 CITO ... that was the ace manager who steered the Toronto Blue Jays to two consecutive World Series championships in the early 90s. Saul (
Jul23 22:05 In 2014, I had possible reception of CITO-TV 3 (CTV) in Timmins, ON - Kegan EM26 (
Jul23 22:03 After the US full power analog turn off, one of the common Mexican stations was XHBC. Anther time, I saw XHP 3. XHBC was more common here, Kegan EM26 (
Jul23 22:01 Another time with channel 3 was when I received KVBC (NBC) Las Vegas, NV, over KOET. Zero beating - (2008) - Kegan EM26 (
Jul23 21:58 (This was sometime between 2005 and 2006) Kegan EM26 (

Jul23 21:54 My regret is I never became as dedicated to TV DXing as I am FM DXing. I primarily monitored TV for early warning indicators for FM Es. Tim EM86 (
Jul23 21:52 Probably right. By the way I really miss TV DX. It really filled the gap when no FM Es came in. Tim EM86 (
Jul23 21:47 If analog TV still abounded, I wonder how this season would compare to the average season? My guess is still below average--Frank M. (
Jul23 21:46 It's nearly August. The death throes of the 2017 Es season is imminent, although may have already withered away. I'm not letting my guard down though. Tim EM86 (
Jul23 21:02 I've even been able to make this headway while fighting varying labels of SCIATICA since May. Some days can be pretty painful--Frank M. (
Jul23 20:57 ...but I'll have to come back to Macomb to live for a few months next year. That will be DX season as well. I'll have lots of antennas a rotators to get rid of late next year--Frank M. (
Jul23 20:56 Well, the poor Es season has let me get more stuff done. Finally the path toward being "permanently" in Chicago before Christmas is evident... (
