Jul28 19:33 I've been to all those places - Sheridan (which wouldn't have been one's first guess) the most recent. OKC of course a much more reasonable guess haha--Frank. (184.171.237.254)
Jul28 19:30 [16:11] EN25 you're right, you've lived in decidedly non-tropo areas. Salt Lake City maybe, though, I can imagine Tr to the north from there, but only so far--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jul28 19:27 I;m at 1001 FM stations total, and 527 of those are by Es John DE (50.253.30.65)

Jul28 18:51 Obviously, I meant two more to 500 stations total on FM...I'm sitting at 498 > Yakima CN96 (97.90.83.28)
Jul28 18:50 I just need two more new ones. TWO more. A 15-minute wimpy opening would likely bring two new FMs in. > Yakima CN96 (97.90.83.28)

Jul28 01:15 being under a "white area" would probably clog the band with all things under 200 mi and block more-distant items - de WA5IYX (69.152.226.122)
Jul28 01:14 0:33 (Sorry if spam it's not appearing for me) - The LG in the living room displays static and plays white noise so I was taking a chance that they still did it with their new 2015 models. It does! The ATV and DTV are segregated, though. -- Dan EM73QX (73.54.238.82)
Jul28 01:13 Fortunately I discovered my TV antenna (C490 2-69 antenna from RS) somehow disconnected from the rotor I connected it to this time last year and if I rotated it anymore it would have fallen through the ceiling… -- Dan EM73QX (73.54.238.82)

Jul28 01:07 I had so many IBOC sidebands in Seattle. Destroyed half the band! > Yakima CN96 (97.90.83.28)

Jul27 23:27 I'm glad most of the IBOC is 60 miles to the southeast in the Twn Cts. EN25 (66.102.6.254)
Jul27 23:25 I have, but I would assume its a function of Es strength and proximity to HD station. Who knows how many I missed due to that ... Mike (50.1.60.19)

Jul27 23:24 [23:21] Yes. I've had intense tropo toward the north take over the HD sidebands when looking that way in the past, though it is rare. Usually to the north Detroit overloads everything from my QTH. de Eric B, Carleton, MI (73.18.15.152)

Jul27 21:22 yes, but I can look outside and get an idea of impending weather - can't do that with quakes - de WA5IYX (69.152.226.122)

Jul23 00:55 2015 has really lacked intensity. And generally, the west and northwest get much less when the overall pattern is weak. In a 3-day cycle of Es, it often intensifies until it reaches us. It doesn't seem to have the strength to do that much lately. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (50.132.6.188)

Jul22 16:49 [16:39] It started getting real bad before I left in 2006 because folks realized they could use northern transmitter sites for northwest valley rimshots.

Jul22 16:35 [16:29] I'm not sure that Es has been as good _anywhere_ in recent years. For example, if I lived in AZ now in a non-HD area, I doubt that Es would be at pre-2007 levels. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (50.132.6.188)

Jul22 15:21 The former is a very unusual case, because they've been Classic Rock format since Day One. Are they perhaps the only US classic rock that signs off?--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jul22 15:21 I will make sure to record 107.9 in Ellensburg. There's a very strong station on that frequency that runs Bible passages 24/7 with "Logos Word of God" IDs. It's a computer software.

Jul22 14:41 Yes, and in 1959 ABC-TV didn't offer programming till something like 11 AM Pacific time weekdays and 2 PM weekends, so new Bakersfield affiliate signed on a few minutes before that. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (50.132.6.188)

Jul22 14:38 I remember commercial FM and TV stations not signing on until noon on Sunday. de dwi/7 (160.3.99.80)
Jul22 14:31 I remember one such station would sign off something like 0000-0530 or similar, but had sports PBP; when there was a game on the West Coast, they'd stay on until the game let out. Eventually they ended up picking up some satellite overnights to fend off the demands from unscrupulous operators using that argument. de Eric B, Carleton, MI (73.18.15.152)
Jul22 14:29 [1412] I seem to remember hearing that somewhere, which explains why so many stations that used to sign off overnight started going 24/7. de Eric B, Carleton MI (73.18.15.152)

Jul22 14:12 [13:31] People are paranoid that a station not running fulltime would be challenged by Calvary Chapel or someone else. I think there may be an obscure phrase in the regs calling for something akin to fulltime operation, but I think it'd be hard to pull a school license for not being 24/7. So they program computers to offer content no one would listen to. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (50.132.6.188)

Jul22 14:04 Yes, Pat. WSDP-88.1 Plymouth, MI (High school station) also used to go off all summer. Then about 2003 or 2004, they got automation and went 24/7. About that time, WSMF came on the air from Monroe on that channel. Now 88.1 is piled up around here also. de Eric B, Carleton, MI (73.18.15.152)
Jul22 13:57 they had moved from 90.3 (s/on fall 1966 when I was in Austin) in 1979 - de WA5IYX (69.152.226.122)
Jul22 13:54 The San Antonio College FM station (now 90.1) used to go off for the entire summer - de WA5IYX EL09ql STX (69.152.226.122)
Jul22 13:45 meant Howard and Jack fm. dont have my glasses on..dwi (160.3.99.80)
Jul22 13:42 Jack Cogan is a great pitch man. I thought he was local to DFW. Glad when I heard his voice in Prescott AZ. My favorite station. de dwi (160.3.99.80)
Jul22 13:33 I especially liked having 90.9 open all weekend long -- got some interesting catches like that! Overnights also brought some good stuff, especially during tropo/Es. Now, 90.9 is just another occupied frequency. de Eric B, Carleton, MI (73.18.15.152)
Jul22 13:31 I liked WRCJ better when it was run by the Detroit Public Schools; signed off early, etc. Toward the end of their operating it, it was only on 0800-1700 Monday-Friday. Now, of course, it's 24/7. Progress, I guess. de Eric B, Carleton, MI (73.18.15.152)
Jul22 13:26 101.9, 102.7 & 104.3 are in 24/7, however. - de Jon in FN03 (216.121.193.226)
Jul22 13:25 Even with 90.9 fairly open, WRCJ is rare here. - de Jon in FN03 (216.121.193.226)
Jul22 13:17 WRCJ is the Classical/Jazz station from Detroit, MI. So, if you now hear HD fizz on the adjacents, that's why. de Eric B, Carleton, MI (73.18.15.152)
Jul22 13:16 Great Lakes DXers, be advised: WRCJ-90.9 is now broadcasting in HD. First noted yesterday, 21 July. Now going to be more difficult to DX 90.7 and 91.1 with added HD fizz. de Eric B, Carleton, MI (73.18.15.152)
Jul22 13:12 Tr WHOP-FM - Lite 98.7 Hopkinsville, KY sounding like a local. Rob Cincinnati EM79 (74.215.66.172)

Jul22 05:18 He has his own studio to record the imaging for all of the Jack FM affiliates! > Yakima CN96 (97.90.83.28)
Jul22 05:17 I have heard Howard doing imaging for KJAQ Seattle, talking about Seafair and the Blue Angels in the past. > Yakima CN96 (97.90.83.28)
Jul22 05:16 [0237] Ask Howard Cogan! He is the voice of "Jack" on all the affiliates. I saw an interesting interview with him - started as a DJ at CKLG FM Vancouver (which became the world's 1st Jack FM affiliate in 2002), soon he was reaching new levels and tons and tons of promos to read, many national, some local-market only. > Yakima CN96 (97.90.83.28)
Jul22 04:26 that's when RDS becomes a real salvation ... - de WA5IYX (69.152.226.122)
Jul22 04:20 during the events today at times the Es swapping was occurring every 15 seconds or so - de WA5IYX (69.152.226.122)
Jul22 03:59 All of the IDed stations lasted maybe 1 min at the most before fading to nothing. Talk about an MUF that swings! > Yakima CN96 (97.90.83.28)
Jul22 03:58 Es 97.5 unid Billy Joel "My Life" - in for 15 sec and gone > Yakima CN96 (97.90.83.28)
Jul22 03:58 Es 101.3 KFEZ Walsenburg, CO "Easy 101.3" with smooth jazz, heard a Bobby Caldwell vocal from 1989, "Real Thing". MONO off-air signal, but tunein webstream is stereo! > Yakima CN96 (97.90.83.28)

Jul22 03:55 Word of the night - SPOTTY. There was FM Es, no new logs, but I would only have 1 or 2 freqs for just 60 sec if at the most until fading to nothing. > Yakima CN96 (97.90.83.28)
Jul22 03:28 [15:57] Or an area that has some population, yet is far enough away from big city markets to be tolerable. Spirit Lake/Arnolds Park/Okoboji in northwest Iowa (where I lived in 1995-96) is one such place. It's also at nearly the highest elevation in the state of Iowa, which helps, too -- Rick in South Omaha EN21af (98.161.16.16)

Jul22 02:37 [01:40] a promo that JACK *should* run, but doesn't: "If you think we're just another radio station that plays the same stuff over and over, over and over, over and over...you don't know Jack!"--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jul22 02:16 Having locals on almost all frequencies probably doesn't help either. - de Jon in FN03 (216.121.193.226)
Jul22 02:15 I've had strong top of band Es on the Sony, and found nothing at all in the car 100 feet away. - de Jon in FN03 (216.121.193.226)
Jul22 02:15 Whenever I get Es, I usually leave for my mobile setting 3 blocks away. Less RF, and it's right next to a creek with lots of green space! > Yakima CN96 (97.90.83.28)
Jul22 02:14 I have the oposite problem. I can only get skip on the Sony w the indoor setup. Haven't had any Es in the car since 2009. - de Jon in FN03 (216.121.193.226)
Jul22 02:12 Mike, I'm hoping for reverse. Instead of skip fading away before heading home, how about skip increasing to 103.1 and up! > Yakima CN96 (97.90.83.28)
Jul22 02:11 Missed all the earlier shots, and it looks like there might be a chance. Time to leave RF City and head for home ... Mike (50.1.60.19)
Jul22 02:06 Its over here. Found I can get skip on the indoor setup, just not well. While I was hearing Boise in the car, the recording had Montana. they're maybe 200 feet apart - En25 (97.88.36.202)
Jul22 02:05 You may be getting NV or OR next > Yakima CN96 (97.90.83.28)
Jul22 02:05 Could also be CHSL Slave Lake, AB but it's WAY up north - 55N latitude > Yakima CN96 (97.90.83.28)
Jul22 02:04 Probably Tr from N. Dakota - En25 (97.88.36.202)
Jul22 02:04 Maybe KSRA Salmon ID? Soft Rock/Country hybrid. > Yakima CN96 (97.90.83.28)
Jul22 02:02 i'd like to figure out what that oldies station on 92.7 was during that opening. It didn't stay in long enough. Six new stations and 3 new states is good enough - En25 (97.88.36.202)
Jul22 01:56 Rick, 6M opening up to CO WY...your chance for E's? > Yakima CN96 (97.90.83.28)
Jul22 01:55 Darn, I wish you were getting KJZZ via Es right now Rick > Yakima CN96 (97.90.83.28)
Jul22 01:54 It just occurred to me, that "Folsom middle school" may have been "Polson", which would confirm KKMT - En25 (97.88.36.202)
Jul22 01:53 (Used to live in Phoenix. That was a flashback.) - Rick N6KCR Seattle (50.132.6.188)
Jul22 01:53 [01:49] KPLU. That's what I meant! My main problem with 92.1 is that I seldom get any skip on that freq. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (50.132.6.188)
Jul22 01:49 My farthest tonight was KZUS Ephrata. 1,209 miles give or take - En25 - they need to fix their audio. (97.88.36.202)
Jul22 01:49 KJZZ?! I thought it was KPLU in West Seattle...not a Phoenix NPR 1100+ miles away? > Yakima CN96 (97.90.83.28)
Jul22 01:48 96.1 is still weak; 96.9 much stronger here. 91.7 is still clear, so don't neglect that. 92.1 can be good if you're shadowed from Victoria and the KJZZ translator. Clutter abounds. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (50.132.6.188)
Jul22 01:44 KASB still on 89.9. Radio U is pretty strong on 89.1. 93.7 almost a lost cause here in summer. Better in winter but no skip then. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (50.132.6.188)
Jul22 01:42 I'll be around the First Hill neighborhood east of the downtown core, and I-5 > Yakima CN96 (97.90.83.28)
Jul22 01:41 I would also monitor 93.7, but KLSY's SS Christian format has practically destroyed that frequency as far as Everett. Miles of CJJR Vancouver coverage lost. > Yakima CN96 (97.90.83.28)
Jul22 01:40 But most of the time, I'll be listening to whatever JACK wants to play on 96.5 mHz > Yakima CN96 (97.90.83.28)
Jul22 01:40 I hope. Will be monitoring channels like 91.9, 89.9 (NOT in Bellevue, of course). 89.1, 95.3, 96.1, 101.9. > Yakima CN96 (97.90.83.28)
Jul22 01:39 Bring the skip with you, will ya, Yak? - Rick N6KCR Seattle (50.132.6.188)
Jul22 01:31 Rick - I will be back in Seattle WA CN87 tomorrow for a while. Business appointment. Will be leaving the FM radio probably on 96.5 KJAQ > Yakima CN96 (97.90.83.28)
Jul22 01:30 92.3 CHR - I suspect you had KKMT Ronan MT "Star 92" - they don't stream > Yakima CN96 (97.90.83.28)
Jul22 01:28 I had a unid either Adult Contemporary or CHR on 92.3 during the same time Boise and Washington were in, it was playing Katy Perry - En25 (97.88.36.202)
Jul22 01:27 Nothing heard during periodic checks but recording 91.9. Nice that some nearby activity is happening. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (50.132.6.188)
Jul22 01:23 if everyone used high-level RDS injection it might have been twice that - de WA5IYX (69.152.226.122)
Jul22 01:20 maybe 20 idents from this event - all south Fla items - de WA5IYX EL09ql STX (69.152.226.122)
Jul22 01:17 92.3 now Alexandria and something mentioning fulsom middle school EN25 (66.102.6.183)
Jul22 01:16 95.3 is Willmar tropo EN25 (66.102.6.187)
Jul22 01:15 They were both in state on 93.5. Both i have hrd before - EN25 (66.102.6.187)
Jul22 01:14 94.7 has too much noise from adjacent local kmxk EN25 (66.102.6.250)
Jul22 01:14 Ah, that's probably not the KWDR format unless it's "Layla" (Unplugged) or "Change the World". The Blue Oyster Cult may be Rock-It 93.5 in Worthington. > Yakima CN96 (97.90.83.28)
Jul22 01:12 Es a few spasms of 88-92, MUF gone or footprint in ocean off Fla e coast ? - de WA5IYX EL09ql STX (69.152.226.122)
Jul22 01:12 What would one recommend I purchase to monitor the 28-87 MHz band for ES in the future? Or maybe just the 6M band if cheaper? I would like to better monitor lower frequencies for up and coming ES. I forget the name of the device. -- Dan EM60 mobile (70.167.231.14)
Jul22 01:11 I have two classic rockers on 93.5. One playing blue oyster cult just got over the other Eric Clapton. EN25 (66.102.6.246)
