Nov25 21:17 That's what spybot search and destroy is for. EN25 (
Nov25 21:03 Careful with Chrome preferences. Haven for malware that keeps coming back if you don't know how to clean your profile ... Mike (
Nov25 20:45 IE is an abomination. I refuse to even use MS Edge on Windows 10. Chrome and Firefox much better - En25 (
Nov25 20:40 [20:16] Use Task Manager to figure out what apps cause memory leaks, and use a better browser ... Mike (
Nov25 20:40 [20:15] When its warranted, yes. We have to deal with the wreckage daily ... Mike (
Nov25 20:40 my first non-Atari machine was a Packard Bell 386-SX-16 ($1K at Wards) with 1M RAM, guess how Win 3.1 performed on that ? - de WA5IYX (
Nov25 20:33 on all other machines (I've done several) a RAM upgrade was mechanically easier to do - de WA5IYX (
Nov25 20:31 cud expand NE522 to 8G RAM but to access seems the entire bottom cover needs to come off, not just a small portal - de WA5IYX (

Nov25 20:15 fashionable to keep on bashing MS (
Nov25 20:14 that's why so many places still offer items with Win 7 OS on them - de WA5IYX (
Nov25 19:54 Vista was almost as bad as ME. 8 was a fiasco as well. Some vendors are recommending against 10 until MS gets their act together on it ... Mike (
Nov25 19:31 I miss Vista. I was one of the few who actually had 0 problems with it. The laptop itself blew up but the OS wasn't at fault - En25 (
Nov25 19:30 I didn't know they still made Gateways. - EN25 (
Nov25 19:24 and that goes back to 3.1 in 1992, Win95,98,XP, (skipped Vista), and 7 in 2010 - de WA5IYX (
Nov25 19:21 Having it sort of autoupdate from 8.0 to 8.1 was enuf for me - all other OS changes were with new comps - de WA5IYX (
Nov25 19:19 I've had to run chkdsk so often on this Win8.1 Jan 2014 Gateway NE522 I wouldn't dare try an OS upgrade to it - de WA5IYX (
Nov25 18:16 It had a few hiccups right out of the gate which is disconcerting, but I got them sorted out. - En25 (
Nov25 18:13 [18:10] Good luck with that. Hope your results are better than *every* other person I know who went down that path ... Mike (

Nov25 08:51 Riverhead L.I. NY sure had some sensitive tube receivers that were able to detect 10uv signal level on 40 Mhz band in '39 - KA3JAW FN20jq (

Nov25 05:12 Has anybody ever viewed that "F2" BBC TV reception from 1938? Many links to it, from various sources./cdEL96 (
Nov25 05:11 I used to think that a TV station using AM audio could be DXed at night. :) /cdEL96 (
Nov25 04:13 Curious to know why AM would be used instead of wide FM with stereo EN25 (
Nov25 04:11 and a 1959 article that touches on BBC/French TV - de WA5IYX (
Nov25 04:00 Cycle 21 BBC B-1 audio - de WA5IYX (
Nov25 01:13 I believe that pre-war WNBT 441-line had AM audio, too. NU (
Nov25 01:11 System A (the 405-line UK system that started it all) and the French 819-line system used AM audio N8NU (
Nov24 22:35 [19:110 - maybe I should leave things parked on DT-5 an beam e.n.e. during Es events - de WA5IYX EL09ql STX (
Nov24 21:36 only system L as per wrth (
Nov24 20:30 Is (or was) there any time that TV used AM modulation for the audio? Am I wrong in thinking that? - En25 (
Nov24 20:19 92.3 "Sunny 92.3" WDEF is hybrid seasonal music now. -- Dan mobile in EM85 (
Nov24 19:11 [17:04] and I IDed KCWX by PSIP by Es 24 miles from WLMB. N8NU (
Nov24 17:10 my most "amusing" of which was in Feb 1963 on Ch 2 with a mix of Robin Hood and a western and "My Lord Sheriff" coming out - de WA5IYX (
Nov24 17:07 NTSC Es audios (being FM and capture ratio) could swap making for some weird juxtapositions - de WA5IYX (
Nov24 17:04 I've had Ch 5 Es (DTV and NTSC) impede KCWX-DT-5 decoding here - de WA5IYX (
Nov24 17:02 none of that six-channel-deep jumble Es gave us on NTSC - de WA5IYX (
Nov24 17:01 I've seen it happen here when tropo is really strong - de Jim T-MO EM37 (
Nov24 17:00 IF you have a local dtv on lo-VHF and there's a strong co-channel coming in via Es, the local sig could completely drop out - Jim T-MO EM37 (
Nov24 17:00 the only thing close to Es CCI on DTV here is when KOTA-DT-2 and KNOP-DT-2 get to swapping decoding - de WA5IYX (
Nov24 16:54 15:48...the dilemma with low VHF being repopulated with dtv signals, its all or nothing when Es is going. Nothing like the analog days - de Jim T-MO EM37 (
Nov24 16:19 all traces of most snowfalls here are usually gone within 12 hours or less - de WA5IYX (
Nov24 16:17 luckily it was a weekend, but patches of snow in shady spots of yards lingered until Wednesday - de WA5IYX (
Nov24 16:11 30 years ago 13" here sure did - they used road graders in places as plows - de WA5IYX EL09ql STX (
Nov24 16:09 w/o snow plows here a 3" fall would almost shut things down - de WA5IYX EL09ql STX (
Nov24 16:07 found DTT901 on eBay in Penna for c $40 w/ship - ETA Nov 27-Dec 1 - de WA5IYX (
Nov24 15:48 [0551] It would be like analog TV again. WPBT-DT2 and WESH-DT2 fighting it out...I could see that ;) > Yakima CN96 (
Nov24 15:42 2'' snow here - several school delays, no closures. We don't hype it up like Seattle does, sorry kids! > Yakima CN96 (
Nov24 13:58 should have gotten "spare" long ago - eBay items cheap, Amazon not so cheap - de WA5IYX (
Nov24 13:54 unplugged, shorted prongs, etc - de WA5IYX (
Nov24 13:53 looks like my 2008 DTT901 may have bit the dust - manually turned off and will not turn back on - de WA5IYX (

Nov24 05:51 I forsee MSP having at least two VHF lo stations. KSTP and WCCO come to mind. That leaves 2,3, and 6. EN25 (
Nov24 05:28 All I know is that for the next 2 years I really need to concentrate on whatever 2-6's come my way./cdEL96 (
Nov24 05:26 WBRZ on DT-2 would mess with Mike-La. Dxing on DT-2 as well - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (
Nov24 05:25 WBRZ on DT-2 would mess with Mike-La. Dxing as well (
Nov24 05:22 Me & Mike-La don't need KATC-DT-28 returning to DT-3 no more DX on DT-3 for us :( - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (
Nov24 04:58 02:34 yeah Pat, we are in the same boat. I don't need WBRZ-DT-13 reappearing as a DT-2 here either. - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (
Nov24 04:31 Will be in EN70WR (Lima, Ohio) Wednesday at noon through Friday. I will have my NS-HDRAD portable radio with me and we will be driving up Tuesday and early Wednesday as well as all Saturday to return. -- Dan EM73QX (
Nov24 04:27 As of Sunday 22 November, local 104.7 "The Fish" WFSH is now full seasonal music. ~10% are religious seasonal as it is a Christian-oriented station -- Dan EM73QX (
Nov24 02:34 I don't need WOAI-DT-48 reappearing as a DT-4 here ,,, - de WA5IYX EL09ql STX (
Nov24 02:19 I doubt Yakima will have every low VHF channel occupied on 2-6, but who knows, KIMA or KNDO could be an Es target in a few years hihi > Yakima CN96 (
Nov24 02:04 Yes it did Yakima. Caught it this morning after the flip. KCML St. Joseph even though the tower is in St. Cloud EN25 (
Nov24 00:00 [23:51] not unless u plan on living in a market with 2-6 filled up (
Nov23 23:58 those DTV pilots just alert the ATSC tuner so that it can "look for the rest of the digital data" - de WA5IYX (
Nov23 23:53 EN25's local 99.9 KCML flipped today as well > Yakima CN96 (
Nov23 23:52 105.3 KONA Pasco WA now Christmas music as of yesterday > Yakima CN96 (
Nov23 23:51 You mean 54.310/60.310 etc? Good beacons for Es - but there are not many 2-6 DTVs in America. With FCC trying to get rid of 31-51, there is probably going to be dozens more. Maybe TV Es DX can come back in mainstream in some way. > Yakima CN96 (
Nov23 23:13 They are still fun to hear, anyway. W3IHM, Sam (
Nov23 23:12 Anybody listen to dtv sync carrier pings? How do you know from whence they come? W3IHM, Sam (
Nov23 02:56 Local 99.3 is on, but off-frequency (strongest at around 99.35 on my Tecsun) and at low power - Christian EN64 Manistee, MI (
Nov23 01:48 I'm sure more young people knew what long-range DX was in the 1970s than today. In the 1970s you actually had to watch and see your local channel 2 get crunched by Miami or Daytona Beach. Now, they watch Netflix and Hulu...where there's no DX. Completely different time. > Yakima CN96 (
Nov22 23:17 I had to handle landline calls from some of them - rather inconvenient before I got an extension phone near the rig in Mar 1981 - de WA5IYX (
Nov22 23:14 so the mni 6m ops with Tech licenses couldn't participate in the 28.885 VHF info net - de WA5IYX (
Nov22 23:11 it's the only h.f. band where a "lower-class" licensee is permitted in the lowest part of the phone segment - de WA5IYX (
Nov22 23:08 The FCC let Novices on 10m (28.1-28.2) cw in 1972, Techs there in Jul 1976 - then later 28.3-28.5 phone - de WA5IYX (
Nov22 23:04 I got my Tech license to get on 50-MHz and learn more abt Es but found so much ignorance among the ops - de WA5IYX (
Nov22 22:43 Oops, wrong place for that, that was meant for the BCB log. My bad - En25 (
Nov22 22:37 Re: 01:47 Thanks a bunch. I asked way back when I logged it but didn't get a response. Will be fixing that asap - En25 (
Nov22 20:33 Problem is, Es DX is getting less mainstream. With everyone in America in digital, we've resorted to 6 meters and FM radio DX now. > Yakima CN96 (
Nov22 20:31 Ham operators should know about sporadic-E. If they DX 10 and 6m in the summer, they should know. Techs are on 10 meters and probably *hear* Es in June/July, but don't know what it is. > Yakima CN96 (
Nov22 18:37 and I'd only had four full summer seasons of TV-DXing wirh it at the time - de WA5IYX (
Nov22 18:34 my first year on air I ran into a high number of veteran ops who hardly had a clue about Es - de WA5IYX (
Nov22 18:32 back then with Techs limited to VHF they shud have had a few such in that exam - de WA5IYX (
Nov22 18:29 there are now actually some propagation questions in the exam pool(s) - unlike 50+ years ago - de WA5IYX (
Nov22 17:40 oh those silly wabbits (
Nov22 17:23 That's a joke....talking about the young amateur radio ops that haven't been taught much about propagation by an experienced elmer like yourself kb7wox! :-) - de Jim T-MO EM37 (
Nov22 17:18 "newbie hams" that a new license class? (
Nov22 16:54 Pat, I think there's a bunch of newbie hams that don't know much about propagation modes - de Jim T-MO EM37 (
Nov22 15:44 I wish some of the DX map posters wud realize that 70-100+ MHz MUF Es doesn't suddenly appear and correctly call it ms - de WA5IYX (

Nov22 01:47 EN25, looking at your AM logs, I see that you have WMFN listed as being in Peotone IL. They do have a CP there, but as of last week, they're still broadcasting from Zeeland MI - Christian EN64 Manistee, MI (
Nov22 01:42 Also, I still have five would-be locals off (one is a translator) - Christian EN64 Manistee, MI (

Nov21 19:49 According to a website, KTIS 98.5 is also going xmas in MNSP. Used to be at least there (107.9, 105.1-105.7 and 98.5) - En25 (
Nov21 19:43 Yep, they're full time as of Friday (yesterday). Their website confirms it. I don't know if any other MNSP stations are going to flip/have flipped. - en25 (
Nov21 19:41 En25, all but one station goes from normal format right to full time holiday format. The only exception in the past few years is WSB 98.5 which does hybrid music throughout the season. -- Dan EM73QX (

Nov20 23:29 as here - de WA5IYX (
Nov20 23:17 anyway, the "Philips Law" (late 40s-early 50s) was e.g., for a given time/incidences of Es MUF at 20 MHz that at 40 MHz will be 10% of that - de WA5IYX (
Nov20 23:15 Started here last Friday...local station even rebranded itself as "Christmas 98.1" // Lee VA FM17 (
Nov20 23:14 [22:04] that was mainlu for hf and low-vhf - when taken to hi-VHF the curve might get steeper - de WA5IYX (

Nov20 22:04 [16:00] So, if there's skip to 108 mHz, 10% of the time there will be skip on Channel 13? :p Frank M.-EN40 (
Nov20 19:31 33.42 FL wx fade in - de kb7wox cn85 (
Nov20 19:15 the way the clip trails off, I'm wondering if "the Bayou" is just part of the slogan, e.g. "the Bayou's Jazz station" // Lee VA FM17 (
Nov20 18:49 Normal 91.5 LA suspect is KGRM... but I've been listening to their stream and it really doesn't seem to match, and no mention of that slogan online - K4NBF (
Nov20 18:48 Have any of you LA/TX area folks heard of "91.5 The Bayou"... link is audio clip from Weds... totally stumped - K4NBF EM66 (

Nov20 17:15 maybe I should turn on my PRO-163 these days to see if any 33-MHz US n.e. FDs have been showing up here - de WA5IYX EL09ql STX (

Nov20 16:37 see fig 4 in that article - I never made diurnal or stacked-day plots for winter 88-108 Es - de WA5IYX (
Nov20 16:25 Pat, do you have any records of Winter Es in NA? - Jim-T MO EM37 (
Nov20 16:15 also note para. 3 under monitoring practices - de WA5IYX (
Nov20 16:10 of course, your getting vy short skip on a given freq means that someone else more distant from the Es has the highest MUF - de WA5IYX (
Nov20 16:07 FWIW - de WA5IYX (
Nov20 16:05 one time on 15m cud hear W1/W2 wkg W3 via Es so knew high MUF up there (way over my own horizon) - de WA5IYX (
Nov20 16:03 once I even tracked an Es event on 20-m - with h.f. and high solar flux lots of F2 to sort thru - de WA5IYX (
Nov20 16:02 before I got 30-50 MHz rcvr in Sept 1967 I spent countless hours using 10 and 15-m for early warning of 6-m/TV Es - de WA5IYX (
Nov20 16:00 the rule of thumb for double the freq the Es occurrence is about 10% - de WA5IYX (
Nov20 15:29 Pat may have better data. My input is simply from memory and experience. de N8UUP Bill EN82 (
Nov20 15:27 When short Es on 10m exist (400 miles or less) I always take a peek at 6m. It's probably 50/50 even then de N8UUP Bill EN82 (
Nov20 15:27 Thanks Bill. I have never looked for Es by observing 10 meter activity - de Jim-T MO (
Nov20 15:26 My experience is that 10m Es is not a good indicator in and of itself for 6m Es however.... de N8UUP Bill EN82 (
Nov20 15:12 ...with 10 meters OR if its a waste of time, typo! - de Jim-T MO (
Nov20 15:11 Just curious if its worth watching what's going on with 10 meters of if its a waste of time - de Jim-T MO EM37 (
