Feb19 03:58 [2:38] Rick, I have semi-locals on 89.7 and 102.9, but they're not hard to knock out during Es events. As for 94.1, it's wide open. KCLK is 1452 miles from here. I can also try for Spokane at 1490 miles. It looks like I have quite a few options for WA state if the conditions would just materialize. The best I've been able to do in that direction is Boise.

Feb09 00:31 [0:06] I just use a 5 TB external hard drive. WhenI bought it in 2015, it was a little over $100. It should be considerably less than that now. It can hold around 40 hours of Airspy recordings, which are 10 MSPS. - Josh EM36ui (
Feb09 00:19 Rick: A large external USB drive or RAID array would probably be fine ... Mike (
Feb09 00:06 [20:34] Yes, I've thought about RDS but have no clue where to start. Files take enough space that I might need a dedicated machine for it. - Rick in SE WA (
Feb08 22:41 My work computer had all modes checked, so you're probably right about FT8 ... Mike (
Feb08 21:28 [18:43] In Modes, there is "Digital." I uncheck that. There may well have been honest to goodness Es, but I was likely at work./cdel96 (
Feb08 20:34 [4:30] Rick, have you thought about using an SDR and RDS Spy? I'm blind as well, and i've successfully used RDS Spy. I even pulled a few Ms catches with it that I wouldn't have gotten otherwise. As for taking forever to go through the files, I agree. I usually just put the time jump at five seconds and skim through when looking for Ms. I'm sure I miss things doing it that way, but it's a nice compromise between doing nothing and spending several days looking for a needle in a haystack. - Josh EM36ui (
Feb08 18:43 [10:23] DXMaps 4.0 has no reference to FT8 in the MODES pulldown and I wouldn't know what else to call it ... Mike (
Feb08 16:53 [14:44] Checking recording, 89.1 at 1720 PST sounded like it had Es fade, but still could have been KFAE Richland WA, which I hadn't yet received. Definitely All Things Considered. Since less than 5 seconds and nothing else heard, kept checking but didn't post here. - Rick N6KCR SE WA (
Feb08 14:44 Mike a bit after 1700 PST I heard an 89.1 for maybe 2 or 3 seconds. Thought it was a previously unheard semilocal, but didn't hear it or anything more when checking. - Rick N6KCR SE WA (
Feb08 14:42 Mike I very briefly heard an 89.1 a bit after 1700 PST but when I tuned in, maybe only 3 seconds. There's a semilocal there which I've never gotten and figured I had. (
Feb08 10:23 [06:59] It could well have been FT8 (digital). DXMaps 2.8 shows everything, whereas 4.0 can weed out digital; huge difference can be seen./cdel96 (
Feb08 10:21 [04:30] I have no PC right now. I recorded, but had to listen in the car or wherever. I had Total Recorder for thar Ms./cdel96 (
Feb08 06:59 There was a bunch of Es showing on DXMaps earlier, and nobody reported anything. Sigh ... Mike (
Feb08 04:30 Christopher, I suspect sighted folks can quickly go through the waveform looking for Ms. I have to audibly fast-forward, taking an hour to go through a day's archive. Hard to justify if the payoff is minimal. And no available RDS. - Rick N6KCR SE WA (

Feb07 20:36 Just about given up on Ms here until the next shower. Active through much of the fall, but the major showers were a bust, and only gotten one ping on 95.5 in the last week. Our new 95.5 translator is imminent, and when that comes, I'll likely give it a rest till skip season. I envy those who have and can use RDS for Ms. - Rick N6KCR SE WA (

Now I wish I had a portable DTV, with a similar antenna, to pull in KNOP on Es outside the apt! ATSC 3.0 will be awesome to see. > Yakima CN96 (

Jan25 01:22 My VHF dipole for 2-6 DTV hasn't pulled in any signals at all. I can have Las Vegas up to 97 mhz and not a BAR on 2...perhaps it's the indoor location. Put up an antenna on the roof (not allowed at apartment, duh) and I'm sure KHSV, KHME, etc. would be logged. > Yakima CN96 (

Jan24 16:55 So, just to clarify, on Tuesday night AC7XP noted his Es was gone at 02:28. My two quick bursts of what was certainly Es occurred at 0342 and 0441 UTC. Discernible audio on 95.5 was spoken "zee-dot" or "vee-dot" and "on the hill", both from the same commercial. - Rick N6KCR SE WA (

Jan24 00:24 Trouble is the HOA community doesn't allow an outside antenna doing so may lead to eviction here in MO; EM29 (
Jan23 23:49 The sad thing about the opening last night is I had at least ten stations I could not identify because paths were moving quickly de AC7XP (

Jan23 08:18 If AC7 isn't getting anything on his end, I'm probably getting Southern CA, Baja, or even Bakersfield. It's happened before. AC7, did your 90.1 give off any regional location? There's a different between KPLI (KNKX) and KNWP... > Yakima CN96 (

Jan22 01:08 My first FM opening in 1968 was heard on a an insensitive $15 Lloyds transistor radio with its short whip. It could barely get powerful stations 30 miles away.

Jan13 21:49 My indoor antenna should be able to get K07ZC-D, ch 7 (KCPQ) so I'll get Fox from Seattle with no SyndEx blackout. Ellensburg is a weird place for TV. Yakima news doesn't talk about E'burg as much as the Lower Valley and almost never discusses Cle Elum. > Yakima CN96 (
Jan13 21:48 I'll be able to 'semi' catch up on Seattle news with Spectrum. I have a friend in Moses Lake who graduated from CWU.

Jan13 19:24 What's needed is an equal protection clause type of law. If the community prohibits use of devices by hams, it thus prohibits uses of other electronic communications devices, such as FM radios and cell phones - which would result in the HOA's dropping their restrictions. N8NU MI (

Dec07 03:10 [21:02] So far the FCC won't let broadcasters turn off their AM signals and keep the FM translator on. (After all, the AM is justification for the FM.) I'm sure it'll happen at some point.) Thank goodness there are only three local AM signals where I live. One has a translator; the other two have grants. But then they're done. - Rick SE WA (

Nov26 01:26 105.9 was the most-interesting channel in Vantage. Threshold signal of KOLH-LP Hermiston OR (100w) mixing with KRJT, Elgin OR (near La Grande) only 115W at 147 miles. Other La Grande's noted across dial too, like KUBQ-98.7. Maybe I'll go back up next year when I move to Ellensburg. > Yakima CN96 (
