Oct25 04:10 I can't go back and "fix it" and have that even-more-perfect moment, but it's cool even just knowing the opportunity was there--Frank M. (
Oct25 04:09 Watching the Cubs do something they've never done in my lifetime would have made the wonderful visit even more perfect--Frank M. EN40 (but currently in VE1-land) (
Oct25 04:07 So distracted I forgot about the game. The two & a half days there were ALREADY wonderful and perfect... (
Oct25 04:07 Antigonish, Nova Scotia. AT THAT MOMENT!! I was so distracted by so many cool things happening around me. (
Oct25 04:06 [Oct23 02:53 OT: Cubs win!...cdOcala] I wish I had been thinking about the Cubs game. I was sitting in a pub... (

Oct24 23:29 KMOL nx 1985 story on CCI from tropo (also ...85a and b.ra) - de WA5IYX (
Oct24 22:43 (19:22) I wasn't that lucky but there were plenty of times when the RGV stations would come in after WOAI/KMOL and KENS signed off on channels 4 and 5...Jack, EM10, ATX (
Oct24 19:29 Copying 2.5, 5, 10, 25 MHz WWV. 20 is quiet, 15 Mhz is WWVH. Interesting. de ka5dwi/7 az dm34 (
Oct24 19:22 (19:12) Sometimes when KCEN signed off WDSU? in New Orleans would show up. de dwi/7 Austin hometown (
Oct24 19:12 (05:06) And that weather dial/time and temperature channel was in glorious black and white too... Jack, EM10, ATX (
Oct24 19:08 Solar noise taking out the S7-8 signal about once every minute. Interesting. Also 10-Meter to the east coast. de dwi/7 dm34 az (

Oct24 05:06 and one them was an automated panning of weather dials - de WA5IYX (
Oct24 05:05 the only CATV that we ever had was very-short-lived in Austin in Sept 1968 - less than 12 channels all on VHF - de WA5IYX (
Oct24 04:17 now there is more commercials & less air time for shows now than in the early 1980's and you should not be paying for cable TV because these commercials should bring in more than enough money for the consumer not to have to pay - amfmtvdtvbrla em40 (
Oct24 04:12 [23:31] , [03:43] yeah, remember when cable TV stations back in the early1980's had no commercials because you were paying for the shows & service - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (
Oct24 03:43 [23:05] Don't forget about Comcast/NBC/Universal Pictures, or Disney/ESPN/ABC, or CBS/Viacom/Showtime. The list goes on forever ... Mike (
Oct23 23:31 Remember the monopoly AT&T had on the phone industry-that should tell you something-John Corning NY (
Oct23 23:10 AT&T's strategy is for us the consumer to to have no choice but to buy services thru them only. and then they will dictate the high prices you will pay - amfmtvdtvbrla. EM40 (
Oct23 23:05 04:16 yeah Pat, AT&T wants to be the Walmart of Cable, Internet & Wireless services. In other words no competition for them,- amfmtvdtvbrla. EM40 (

Oct21 21:20 in the UK (52-54) we had to rely on the nite skywave of mw AFN Frankfurt (c. 600 mi) to hear transcribed US programs - de WA5IYX (
Oct21 21:10 Yeah ... I thought I was on the Bcb Log.... hee hee de dwi/7 (
Oct21 19:50 WFUN 790 had an erratic off-air Mon morning maintenance; did get nice CKLW copy spring 1975./cd (
Oct21 19:49 Had no idea it was the former XELO; finally heard El Paso ads + SS ID "XEROK", early '75; yet CKLW ID wouldn't come until weeks later./cd (
Oct21 19:47 First listens to X-Rok 80 it sounded like "XRK", and I was thinking, am I hearing Thailand?!/cd (
Oct21 19:46 Comdx must be sad when we're all discussing AM.... :)/cd (
Oct21 19:45 I never heard XEROK until the 105 minute silent period nightly of PJB, then had to null my 790 (then WFUN)/cd (
Oct21 19:43 You must mean CBS Radio Mystery Theater with E G Marshall.... "Come in!"/cdEL96 (
Oct21 18:05 some KTRH Aug 1983 Hurricane Alicia coverage - de WA5IYX (
Oct21 18:01 aging here ... KTRH in the mid 70s ran some CBS Radio Network dramas - de WA5IYX (
Oct21 17:10 KTRH was 24 hour news and back in 1976 they announced a small plane crash near Sugar Land that I was supposed to be on. I had to cancel. No one was killed (4 people) but I count my blessings I wasn't on it. de dwi/7 (
Oct21 17:07 I have memories of 740 KTRH. Back then you knew there was Tropo when on the fishing report show when they played NWS weather, it was Lake Charles instead of Galveston NWS. :) de dwi (
Oct21 17:05 Pat - you meant KTHT 790. KTRH was on 740. de ka5dwi/7 (
Oct21 17:02 I was busy earlier. Did anyone hear any Meteor scatter this morning? de ka5dwi/7 (
Oct21 14:48 and that was using this with its built-in loopstick antenna - de WA5IYX (
Oct21 14:47 in mid 1970s used to listen to some of KTRH 790 at nite and the Bonaire 800 sometimes QRMed them - de WA5IYX (
Oct21 14:37 I was always surprised I could copy TransWorldRadio on Bonaire over XEROK (XELO). XEG and XERF were always stronger in Houston. de ka5dwi/7 (
Oct21 14:35 Mike, you're right about Wolfman Jack's L.A. popularity. The key, Wolfman (Bob Smith) managed XERB and built the format around himself. Also on XERB evenings/afternoons, while overnights on other border blasters. Regular folks heard Wolfman in L.A., not just night owls, DXers and truck drivers. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (
Oct21 14:27 Yes, CD, XELO was somewhat similar, but less over the top. In '68 ventured into EE pop programming with odd program called Record Roost, 8 to 10 PM Pacific. You could write to "Cousin Billie" at an EL Paso PO Box and get a genuine return card from Mexico. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (
Oct21 14:22 [02:49] Wolfman Jack wasn't on XELO. He was on XERF/XERB/XEG, and around 1987 XETRA. Common misconception that he was on XELO. XELO off the air overnights. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (
Oct21 13:58 KCGY is probably my most-common Wyoming FM from here. > Yakima CN96 (
Oct21 02:49 Nighttime was Wolfman Jack on XELO/SERF/XEG/XERB. Was more popular in Los Angeles than LA stations ... Mike (
Oct21 02:13 Was XELO programming similar to that of XERF/XEG? I'm old enough to remember their block programming./cdEL96 (
Oct20 22:45 I never heard any mention on XELO of daytime English programming until 1972, with the exception of Steve Crosno's EE hits show which began in '71 and was on in late afternoons. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (
Oct20 22:42 More: EE programming increased in '68 and again in '71. Promotion of XEROK format change in Nov. '72 but format lasted 3 days, then rescinded. Promoed again in 8-73 and restarted with jocks in late 12-73. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (
Oct20 22:38 [21:53] In 1960 XELO had lots of Spanish programming, an hour of U.S. top 40 hits announced in Spanish, evening religion, and some English late at night. Suspect they were Spanish during the day. Off all night till late '72. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (
Oct20 22:18 I think that they were predominately EE then, like the XEG and XERF "border blasters" - de WA5IYX (
Oct20 21:53 Nice XELO there Pat; did they have any EE programming then?/cdEL96 (
Oct20 20:35 maybe I should stock up on multiple units ... in the meantime see if my Apr 2008 Philco TB100HH9 and/or Apr 2009 DS DTX9950 still work - de WA5IYX (
Oct20 20:32 the first unit lasted from Oct 2009-Nov 2015, so less than a year for this one - de WA5IYX (

Oct20 18:03 800-kHz Juarez in 1960 - de WA5IYX (
Oct20 15:47 I can't prove it, but I think that 104.5 WOKV (news/talk) time compresses "live" talk shows, to allow for a long bottom-of-the-hour news report.. /cd (
Oct20 15:44 (03:53 & others) The biggest offender had to have been XEROK 800 Juarez as "X-Rok 80"; I think mentioned electric current as the culprit./cdEL96 (
Oct20 12:23 this was before things like the lengthy Bob Dylan "Like a Rolling Stone" came out in mid 1965 - de WA5IYX (
Oct20 08:28 [03:53] As songs edged past 3 minute mark, many stations did that ... Mike (

Oct20 03:16 JJ, we have a locals on 101.9 and 105.9 that do the same thing. I think that's becoming a trend among stations, and it's rather annoying, IMHO. Just give me a good rock station that doesn't mess with the songs in any way, and I'll be happy -- Rick in South Omaha EN21af (

Oct13 02:22 Then I start tuning around looking for the null points and stations in them. Sometimes the DX is as loud as the semi-locals and cam be mistaken as one. Thats where the XLS file comes in. This morning after hearing Hendersonville I stated looking for Greenville stations in the nulls. Bob-Nj Fn20 (
Oct13 02:17 Usually, for me, when the band starts to open up to a specific area, nulls will appear to that area where they don't normally exist because of the usual station congestion and overlap. Bob-Nj Fn20 (
Oct13 02:11 I keep a copy of an FM XLS database open with my logs marked on it, then when the band is open to a specific area I can easily eliminate what the station I'm hearing probably is or isn't and wait for some station info. I also record everything to go over later. Bob-Nj Fn20 (
Oct13 02:05 577 miles is amazing. This is my second year back to actively DXing since my teens; so far my personal best for tropo is 424 miles to WWLI Providence, RI // Lee VA FM17io (
Oct13 02:05 Lee, the FM Antenna is mounted to my chimney with a Radio Shack Archer rotor. Upgrading could be a little costly and a little work searching out the equipment. Many Antennas and Rotors have been discontinued. I bought the new rotor on ebay last year knowing the old one was going to go south eventually. Bob-Nj Fn20. (
Oct13 02:01 [19:43] Last thing; just realized WMYI is from HendersonVILLE in the mountains (!) of far western NC (as opposed to Henderson, which is NE NC). Phenomenal! // Lee VA (
Oct13 01:57 [Sorry for all the newbie questions everyone, but seemed like an OK time of year to ask!] // Lee VA FM17io (
Oct13 01:56 Do you simply adjust the rotator to those null points for each frequency and see what you get? Or do you have a list of targets you are shooting for? // Lee VA (
Oct13 01:54 Amazing to see you "thread the needle" between all those 102.5s. How do you DX with the rotor? // Lee VA (
Oct13 01:52 I'm assuming your 6055 is outside? What rotor are you using? // Lee VA (
Oct13 01:51 I've been amazed at how well it does, but it seems like there's another level of DXing if/when I can upgrade to directional // Lee VA (
Oct13 01:49 [19:09] Thanks for the info, Bob! I have a Winegard 6010 in my attic. // Lee VA (

Oct12 19:50 My wife has recently been lobbying for us to move to a condo for as we get older. I told her, if we did it would have to have an attic with enough room to rotate an antenna in it. Bob-Nj Fn20 (
Oct12 19:43 The station in Henderson, NC (236 deg) on 102.5 was squeezed between 220 and 225 degress between WBOC Princess Anne (212deg) and WRFY Reading, PA (281deg), & WYRS LP translator Semi-local Whiting, NJ (20mi-238deg). And with WBAZ Bridgehampton Long Islang, NY (58 deg) off the back popping in and out too. Phew! Needless to say, the rotator helps a lot! Bob-Nj Fn20! (
Oct12 19:28 If it had not been for the big red blotch on the APRS map I might not have tuned around. The band has been so dead! Bob-Nj Fn20 (
Oct12 19:26 That station B93-7 in Greenville, SC on 93.7 was squeezed 1 notch (215degrees) between WSTW in Wilmington, Del (257deg) and Bob Fm in Chesapeake, Va (205deg), even though B93-7 is at 235 degrees from me. 977 miles could be my longest tropo from here on the NJ shore. Bob_Nj Fn20 (
Oct12 19:14 An Omnidirectional would not work for me here in New Jersey. Also, I have to tune the rotator to find the null point for each frequency I tune the radio to, because there are so many stations here between NY and Philly. Bob-Nj Fn20 (
Oct12 19:09 [16:10] Lee, I am using a winegard hd6055 directional FM antenna, and just replaced my rotator that burned last month. I also have an FM6 antenna but save it for when the Winegard bites the dust. Bob-Nj Fn20 (

Sep21 03:20 The larger telescoping antenna didn't improve anything at all other than the signal of that one station coming in. The issue with my location is that I will only get stations from ~30deg NE to ~150deg SE because while 130 feet AGL, I am on the east side of my building. It did almost pick up 2 other (closer) nearby channels with the very slight improvement in the telescoping antenna. -- Dan EN50MM (
Sep20 23:54 I got my TV from Georgia hooked up with a small telescoping antenna connected via coax hidden behind. The only station on my first scan thus far yields WCIA 3.1 (CBS) 39.8 miles with sub channels 3.2 (repeating ABC) , 3.3 (bounce) , and 3.4 (Grit). I will in a few minutes get a slightly bigger telescoping antenna hooked up to it, but I don't expect too many great results. -- Dan EN50MM (

Sep15 18:48 that season, it was either the Monterrey Tr on May 26 OR the massive, massive, massive Ontario Tr opening on August 2--Frank M. (
Sep15 18:47 [00:30] Maybe I'm getting my years wrong, but I think 2012 was the year that I had the Mexican high-banders on Es on June 18; was it? AND... (
Sep15 17:21 [00:30] It's all subjective. 2012 was bad here, but nowhere near as bad as 2016. Very little quality DX. Effectively, when June ended, so did the best part of the DX season.

Sep14 21:13 My equipment in 1971 was severely limited & I still got 700+ miles with rabbit ears. Thanksgiving 1986 (multi-day event) was the biggest known opening in world history--Frank M. (

Aug22 20:59 18:21 (21 August:cdEL96) - There is no community antenna on this building, unfortunately. Each room is suited with cable TV service (analog, 120 channels) and I believe the LPFM on campus has its transmitter atop the 28 floor residence hall, probably 1,000 ft away or less. It interferes a little with the cable TV. The TV also has dedicated channels on 3 (WGLT, antenna out some ways but visible from my dorm) and 4 (WZND) for radio -- Dan EN50MM (
Aug22 20:51 17:58 (21 August:KA3JAW) - If I unpack the Denon, I will move the Philips DC291/37 to the window. I'm not on the TOP floor, but I'm pretty close, and it's also a very social floor that the others seem to envy -- Dan EN50MM (

Aug21 13:30 Which brings up an interesting question...I already know what a solar eclipse can do to MW reception, but how would it affect FM? -- Rick in South Omaha EN21af (
Aug21 13:29 [01;44] Already have it penciled in on my calendar, Jerry. Could be once in a lifetime event for a lot of us -- the eclipse on 2/26/79 was only partial for me, but I'm close enough to the totality parth for next year's that I might get the ultimate treat -- Rick in South Omaha EN21af (
