Apr20 04:12 [0001] Yes, just fine. Also especially since 162mhz is monitored during strong Es events that reach 2-meters. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr20 02:16 DX distances this week: WRAZ 676 mi, WKTC 560 mi, WCBD 480 mi, WWAY 576 mi./cdel96 (
Apr19 19:50 I concur with posting wx band; it's around 162 MHz, as I recall, and RF7 is 174-180 MHz, IIRC. Even though I don't DX wx or TV, I agree that wx falls within TV/FM. de Eric B, Carleton MI (

Apr19 02:20 I'm all for posting WX band catches here, too - and have done it a few times already. - Jim-F SATX EL09qn (
Apr19 02:13 I agree with Chris and Chime. I don't see a problem with posting WX band catches here, especially since the WX band is close to RF 7 and this section is supposed to be for TV as well. - Josh EM36ui (
Apr19 01:15 I put a link to a 2011 NOAA catch for Josh a couple of weeks ago here, so why not?/cdel96 (
Apr19 00:55 Well Eric, I would think anything above 6meters would fly here. Chime in Sherman Oaks (
Apr19 00:01 Is it okay to report NOAA dx in this channel? I had 202 miles earlier of it. Seems like it would be a bit OT here - Eric CM96 (
Apr18 23:49 SWell, looks like Wednesday's tropo was just a late April Fools tease. There was absolutely NOTHING showing on Hepburns tropo map but had some short tropo with lots of good sounding fading. Not an iota of Tropo today. Dennis FM18 (

Apr12 04:16 03:53] Think I may have just found out why KLWB-DT-17 signal was reduced here. I checked their antenna's directional pattern and their signal beam has changed from east northeast to west northwest direction pointed away from my location. - amfmtvdtvbrla. EM40 (
Apr12 03:58 [03:56] The station is KLWB-DT-17 in Lafayette LA. Their signal was at 85 to 94 % on RF-50 now their signal is at 60 to 64 % on RF-17. - amfmtvdtvbrla. EM40 (
Apr12 03:56 [03:54] I think those stations that are repacking to a lower RF channel are reducing power on their new RF channel if they were at 1000 kW - amfmtvdtvbrla. EM40 (

Apr11 21:17 The HDR-14 is an excellent receiver from my experience. Although I personally recommend the slightly cheaper SPARC SHD-TX2. Both have good reception, and IBOC, but the SPARC does better with adjacent channels than the HDR-14. -Kyle (

Jan24 14:19 The HOA is putting a complicated process in place to get approval for my antenna and may lead to eviction here in MO; EM29 (
Jan24 03:14 Being a licensed ham helps get around hoa restrictions. I was never challenged they knew i was licensed but kept everything low profile to keep the peace. Nothing mounted on the house. RZ. (
Jan24 03:11 I used antenna in the attic for many years in Florida. Had HOA. Did ok with that over 3400 fm logs mostly on that antenna. RZ (
Jan24 03:05 Re 00:24, I wonder if your HOA allows Dish & DirecTV dishes mounted to the side of a house? The dish is technically an antenna - de JimT/MO EM37 (
Jan24 02:41 Even possible that what sounds like Ms from last night could be remnants of e-skip. If so, very fast fades and quick, loud bursts. - Rick N6KCR SE WA (
Jan24 02:37 After AC7XP's opening ended, lots of extremely strong Ms activity on what sounded like an unsettled band. Going through 95.5 recordings now. Alas, recording had stopped earlier before the opening. Started recording after. - 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 23:15 [21:56] Specifically quoting the rules that the HOA cannot breach goes much farther in protecting the antenna owner ... Mike (
Jan23 23:15 [21:56] People have a tendency to bow to authority and not question. Not doing so (or doing so wrong) may lead to eviction or penalties. (
Jan23 21:56 Re 14:05 & 15:15, the FCC has regulations that protect homeowners in HOA's so that they can use modest antennas. HOA's are NOT the boss - de JimT/MO EM37 (
Jan23 20:47 That's what I like to hear...unbridled optimism! ... Mike (
Jan23 15:15 Nothing will ever be received here in this HOA community here in MO; EM29 (
Jan23 15:08 [08:18] Nothing received here when reading AC7XP's loggings, but I was really late to this party. - Rick in SE WA (
Jan23 15:01 I'm very impressed with that Phoenix/Tehachapi logging. When actively DXing from Bakersfield for 13 years, the only Arizona stations logged were in Tucson and Sierra Vista. (
Jan23 14:05 Would be likely, I can not monitor the FM band in a HOA community here in MO; EM29 (
Jan23 14:04 The cities were mostly western WA......but that has fooled me in the past with some stations giving weather just outside of their region de AC7XP (
Jan23 14:02 I tried narrowing it down, but could only get that it was Washington state due to cities and temps 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 (
Jan23 08:17 If AC7 isn't getting (
Jan23 08:17 [0554] Sounds like something I likely would have caught on. But alas, I usually don't monitor the FM band in the winter, and I was in night class at the college. Double whammy! I'm just waiting for May at this point to really start monitoring. > Yakima CN96 (
Jan23 06:01 i'll have to pay attention over the next few days tho. Es can sometimes show patterns and occur at the same time. - Eric CM96 (
Jan23 05:54 MUF likely was pretty high and sounds like it was out of my skip zone. SLO tho is about 130 miles from here. - Eric CM96 (
Jan23 05:54 Interesting AC7XP. I guess you got a short skip event. - Eric CM96 (
Jan23 03:16 There's also KPLI, which is a satellite station of KNKX. - Rick N6KCR SE WA (
Jan23 03:15 A few candidates, Kegan. If that's the only WA station, narrowing it down further would be unlikely. - Rick N6KCR SE WA (

Jan22 02:05 Very cool, Cd. I've never heard 1000 mile tropo from here, even on my outdoor setup. The closest I've gotten was WWRM in Tampa at 832 miles. I'd love to pick up Miami or Mexico. I've heard Rio Grande Valley tropo multiple times, but just couldn't make that final push. - Josh EM36ui (
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. A bad radio by any standard, but it's what I had and what I knew. Fortunately, signals made up for its deficiencies. Not capable of any weak reception, but that didn't dampen the excitement. - Rick in SE WA  (
Jan22 01:06 Same radio/TV unit had some wild Es to Mexico City on whip while I was briefly in Ft. Myers. Great radio, but AM coulda stood improvement./cd (
Jan22 01:04 Back in 1981, my DX unit was a JVC 3050. I know I heard what had to be Veracruz via tropo on 101.3 & 102.1 via whip---but neither would ID 4 me, grrr./cdel96 (

Jan22 00:58 I once heard an FM station with music (in Spanish, on 101.7, IIRC) with a Sony Walkman SRF-M37W - The earphones' cord acting as an antenna. Also, on TV, I saw stations on VHF low band channels - an opening to Mexico - the same day. The FM station possibly in Mexico. - Kegan EM26 (
Jan22 00:55 ....including ch 14's in Houston & Monroe LA on an indoor TV antenna, and 98.5 McAllen on whip---the latter > 1000 mi./cdel96 (
Jan22 00:55 [17:45] A few years ago, the OTARD rule came into effect. It allows one antenna in a non-common area, but the antenna must fit in a 1m sphere. N8NU MI (
Jan22 00:54 [00:18] there was an intense tropo to TX in 1989, one year before a WTFDA member convinced me to get an outdoor antenna./cdel96 (
Jan22 00:18 [23:14] Agreed, Yak. I've had 500+ mile tropo and 1100+ mile Es using just the whip on the Tecsun PL-880. Having an external Antenna does help considerably in weaker openings, but they're not 100% required to enjoy the hobby. - Josh EM36ui (

Jan19 21:33 When DX'ing in the car, it would be with the car's own radio, in this case, a 2017 Chevrolet Volt, which the radio it has includes RDS. After a time, the radio would turn off - (maybe to save battery power?) Only can power on with master power activated by the driver. - Kegan EM26te (

Jan13 21:50 In fact Roslyn's cable dumped everything except KING from Seattle recently. Cle Elum's even closer to Seattle. I doubt anyone cares about what's going on in Kennewick. > Yakima CN96 (
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 (
