Apr25 23:59 My bad... I actually started typing WAXX but my brain said wait that doesn't look right. No I did not get WIXX. That would take a miracle. En35 (66.41.116.163)

Apr25 10:57 I have my antenna aimed northeast. Just gonna record while I catch some Z's. We'll see what happens. There's nothing unusual right now. - Josh EM36ui (174.236.157.183)
Apr25 10:00 No Tropo here this morning. off to bed to sleep now. - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.11.162.241)
Apr25 08:52 Thanks Josh. Nothing here right now. but checking the FM Band anyway. I think it is too early. Tropo will get going around or after daybreak - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.11.162.241)
Apr25 08:44 Thanks AM, I'll have the Airspy recording. I'd love to get some more logs from IN and LA (11 and 52 logs respectively). Hope you get lots of long haul tropo as well. - Josh EM36ui (174.236.157.183)
Apr25 08:39 Josh, Hepburn Tropo Forecast Map shows there will be some weak to fair Tropo in your location from Illinois, Indiana to your northeast to my location in Louisiana down along the northern Gulf Coast this morning peaking around 9 am CDT - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.11.162.241)
Apr25 08:27 [8:07] Yeah, I can pick it up most of the time. It's 142 miles from here. - Josh EM36ui (174.236.157.183)
Apr25 08:07 Josh in Arkansas, 97.5 in Hot Springs AR is a Arkansas Tropo beacon for me here. If there is weak Tropo starting build up into Arkansas 97.5 KQUS always is the first station to show up here via Tropo. Josh, you should be able to receive 97.5 KQUS right ? - amfmtvdtvb4rla EM40 (68.11.162.241)
Apr25 04:57 I remember they were off all summer in 2012 and I was able to get KACV Amarillo via Es while they were off. > Yakima CN96 (71.84.190.145)
Apr25 04:56 This shows them silent on 4/13. Hmmmm....could 89.9 be open for Es, at least for some of May? > Yakima CN96 (71.84.190.145)
Apr25 04:51 Rick: The person who runs KASB is Brad Conger. You can find his email on the Bellevue HS website. Maybe they closed down due to lack of students or due to interference complaints from KXIR? (Which wouldn't seem likely.) > Yakima CN96 (71.84.190.145)
Apr25 02:21 [22:40] 94.7 KSHE is 564 miles from my location. I caught their signal in late spring around Sunset. May have been a very narrow Tropo Duct opening. Nothing else was coming in via Tropo or Es on the FM Band at the time. Their signal was in here for about 45 min barley audible then gone - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (174.255.131.84)
Apr25 00:22 89.9 KASB Bellevue WA is still off--and I wonder if they're done altogether. Their online feed is gone, and their Twitter account appears to have been closed. (@kasbfm) (73.97.163.151)
Apr24 23:28 Just wanted to let everybody know that KTRI 95.9 Mansfield, MO is back on the air broadcasting Spirit FM. I caught their TOH ID in my morning recordings. - Josh EM36ui (174.236.157.183)
Apr24 22:40 [22:25] I can hear them most of the time. KTTS can pose a bit of a challenge, but even the slightest bit of enhancement to the northeast brings them in. KSHE is 188 miles away from my house. How far is KSHE from you? That has to be close to 600 miles. Quite good considering there's no water path involved. - Josh EM36ui (174.236.157.183)
Apr24 22:25 Josh in Arkansas, can you receive 94.7 KSHE from Crestwood Mo? I have only received their signal barley audible once here amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (174.255.129.7)
Apr24 16:13 I guess those wouldn't be six meters on the APRS map...frequencies are 144 MHz - de JimT/MO EM37 (174.234.128.19)
Apr24 16:08 Hey, six meter echoes on the tropo map central CO>eastern Oklahoma, Es??? DxMaps has 6m activity central & eastern states - de JimT/MO EM37 (174.234.128.19)
Apr24 15:04 Guys I had a skip dream last night. That means it's coming. En35 back in en35 (97.116.130.97)
Apr24 00:02 *receiver - KRMW later came back on the air - Kegan EM26 (72.161.176.129)
Apr23 23:59 I could hear the spur most on 94.86 - not a much on 94.90 - Tuning steps on Grundig S450DLX reveiver - Kegan EM26 (72.161.176.129)
Apr23 22:55 If you can get around that spur, I'd think KHKN Maumelle, AR and KCMO should be fairly easy catches. - Josh EM36ui (174.236.157.183)
Apr23 22:35 Turns out to be a spur from local station KUAF, Fayetteville, AR with NPR - Kegan EM26 (72.161.176.129)
Apr23 22:29 Antenna is SSE - Kegan EM26 (72.161.176.129)
Apr23 22:28 Local on 94.9 (KRMW, Cedarville,AR) off the air at this time - hearing another station with NPR - Antenna SEE - Kegan EM26 (72.161.176.129)
Apr23 22:04 Tr 98.7 WNNS Springfield, IL (268 miles) fighting with KWTO Springfield, MO. Saint Louis locals a bit stronger than usual as well. - Josh EM36ui (174.236.157.183)
Apr23 19:32 KHTR had no HD when I was out there. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (73.19.1.1)
Apr23 19:32 Maybe if I still get an SDR and a directional antenna I may be able to play around and phase those down a little bit. The same crap has happened to 103.5 since KZTR-LP signed on. I can only find a couple of tiny nulls that bring in KWHT. > Yakima CN96 (71.84.190.145)
Apr23 19:30 Yes, here in Yakima 99.7 KHHK is HD just to put analog HD2/3/4 translators on the dial. They are on 104.5, 106.1 and 106.9. Never been able to null them out. > Yakima CN96 (71.84.190.145)
Apr23 19:29 Looks like 97.7 KZBG and 104.3 KHTR are HD. So 97.5/97.9, 104.1/104.5 are IBOC hash out there. Far less than Seattle's dial! Like I said earlier, you may get some Es that I cannot receive. > Yakima CN96 (71.84.190.145)
Apr23 19:28 The 97.7 KZBG Lapwai ID has an HD with 4 channels, seemingly the means to get 3 translators. Otherwise no HD. 90.5 is listed with HD bt none found - Rick N6KCR Seattle (73.19.1.1)
Apr23 19:25 [17:12] Spent 4 days there in March. Yes, lots on noncom band but no HD heard there. My best Es noncom freqs (91.1/91.5) open. The (alomst) lack of HD will really help. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (73.19.1.1)
Apr23 18:13 FCC proposing to address (read: "relax requirements around") translator interference #sigh #ihearttranslators // Lee VA http://www.insideradio.com/free/fcc-releases-its-plan-to-address-translator-interference/article_308cf5e8-44e0-11e8-86bb-c3f421230fa5.html (73.147.226.145)
Apr23 17:12 The interesting thing about this location is that you'll have a chance at Milwaukee, Green Bay and Dallas on long single-hop Es (1400-1450mi). Can't do that here! > Yakima CN96 (71.84.190.145)
Apr23 17:11 Non-comm band: 88.5 has a semi-local 15 miles away that is deep into '2Edge' on FMFool and probably weak; KRLF at 400w. 90.1 and 90.9 seem OK for DX as well. > Yakima CN96 (71.84.190.145)
Apr23 17:09 [0334] Just checked FMFool for Clarkston. You'll have a nice open area between 95.1-96.1, the non-comm band is pretty full out there however. 92.5-93.3 is completely open as is the entire 107 mhz part of the dial. You may have to do some nulling or phasing on some channels since there are several translators in Lewiston, but you should have way more Es there. > Yakima CN96 (71.84.190.145)
Apr23 16:30 Some good seasons didn't get into gear till June but also had good Julys and Augusts. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (73.19.1.1)
Apr23 16:29 [16:05] Yes, fair for below 50 mHz, esp. in southern locations. (1994 was much earlier.) FM varies. In Cal I did have Es on FM as early as April 17 with more in late April, but more commonly starting in early May. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (73.19.1.1)
Apr23 16:06 I figure with today being a normal work day the FCC should be able to fix their problem, then I can take the file down. Bob-Nj Fn20 (73.10.143.125)
Apr23 16:05 Does that sound like a fair assessment? I do notice six meters beginning to get more active now - JimT/MO EM37 (174.234.128.19)
Apr23 16:04 [13:15] KA3JAW, sorry, you are right, I rushed it out and labeled it wrong, Dumb! It was Art, KA5DWI that sent it too me. Bob-Nj Fn20 (73.10.143.125)
Apr23 16:04 Although their is no *official* start date to the Es season, the general consensus among hams I know say it starts to kick in around April 22-23 - de JimT/MO EM37 (174.234.128.19)
Apr23 15:48 thanks for an FM list. Was hoping it would mention if a station is in HD? Can some1 please post a TV list? Thanks in advance from Sherman Oaks (104.172.0.143)
Apr23 14:16 No Ms pings except for one I will need to email or call the station I think I heard (from SC on 89.1)./cdEL96 (73.0.37.139)

Apr23 13:15 Bob-NJ: I did not provide you with an FCC FM station list - KA3JAW FN20jq (65.78.93.142)
Apr23 12:54 The url is: http://dxworld.com/fmq2018.htm. It's just a basic listing, nothing fancy! Bob-Nj Fn20 (73.10.143.125)
Apr23 12:50 Well at any rate if someone needs to check a listing in the FCC FM station list I uploaded a webpage based on KA5DWI's last download he sent me. Bob-Nj Fm20 (73.10.143.125)

Apr23 03:34 Yak, Clarkston/Lewiston area. Some of the main stations there are translators, but even with some expansion, lots of open frequencies. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (73.19.1.1)
Apr23 03:24 Justin, Mercedes is down on the border, I would think you could hear quite a few mexicans from where you are? Bob-Nj Fn20 (73.10.143.125)

Apr23 02:03 I know you were thinking about Cle Elum. Wouldn't be that bad. Only a few locals to deal with. Seattle signals are weak and some like 100.7 don't come in at all since they are directional towards the west. > Yakima CN96 (71.84.190.145)
Apr23 02:02 [0005] Again, where? Tri-Cities? Yakima? Goldendale? I asked you a few weeks ago with no response. We may get to meet sometime! > Yakima CN96 (71.84.190.145)
Apr23 01:59 KZ4RR de N8UUP - status check (76.112.212.76)
Apr23 01:45 So it appears the FCC station search engine will sometimes works but sometimes still getting the Security Violation notice. Bob-Nj Fn20 (73.10.143.125)
Apr23 00:05 Yak, looks like 2018 may be a split season for me if it lasts long enough. May be off to SE WA as early as mid-July. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (73.19.1.1)
Apr22 23:39 I've been able to identify one station via Ms from this morning's recordings so far. WBYR 98.9 Woodburn, IN (511 miles) was in for around 5 seconds a little after 8:30. I only know that because of RDS Spy. - Josh EM36ui (174.236.157.183)

Apr22 17:49 I tried that FCC database, but I couldn't search for KLCs which is moving tomorrow? They are a PBS on 58 RF 41. Thanks in advance from Chime in Sherman Oaks (104.172.0.143)
Apr22 16:25 I have seen reports from other web sites of increased spam and hacking activity in the last month. The FCC site would be nice target for attacks. Bob-NJ Fn20 (73.10.143.125)
Apr22 16:22 I have noticed a lot of hits from the Eastern block area the last few weeks on this site, maybe the FCC is getting so many spam _ hits that it's crashing the searches through the search engine site. Bob-Nj Fn20 (73.10.143.125)
Apr22 16:12 The CDBS FCC search engine still seems to work if the other searches fail for anyone. CDBS Search Page here. Bob-Nj Fn20wb (73.10.143.125)
Apr22 15:41 Looks like the FCC website has been hacked or they just updated with some bad code. Station searches are coming up as a security Violations. Another source bites the dust! Bob-Nj Fn20 (73.10.143.125)
Apr22 15:05 Recorded on 92.7 from 3:30 - 9 CT. Had a half dozen pings but nothing IDable. Drove out to Boerne to see the shower. Skies were clear, but we only saw a few faint meteors & had very few pings on the car radio. - Jim-F SATX EL09qn (72.177.237.141)

Apr06 05:41 That's cool. I've been fascinated by distant FM reception for as long as I can remember. There was one Es opening to Florida in the summer of 2003 that I found shocking because I didn't know reception was possible out that far back then. We moved shortly after that, and my DX hobby sort of fell by the wayside until September 2013, when I decided to pick it back up. (174.236.133.227)

Jan30 13:38 I remember in early 70s when the "experimental" AM Stereo stations (like 1300 Baltimore) required 2 radios--one tuned slightly up, the other down./cdEL96 (174.228.133.106)
Jan30 11:31 As for AM stereo, it was demonstrated in 1960, but kept off the market, broadcasters didn't want to spend money on something that would bring zero-sum gain in the long run if every AM were to install it. N8NU (192.252.196.14)
Jan30 11:28 The only possible reason to mandate 800km co-channel spacing at 180 meters would be to assure that the X-band would be wasted. N8NU (192.252.196.14)
Jan30 11:19 Test (192.252.196.14)
Jan30 11:09 [23:53] X-band and AM stereo weren't allowed to help AM radio N8NU (192.252.196.14)

Jan29 23:53 Honestly, back in 1995 I thought AM would be history by 2010. The X-band & AM Stereo couldn't save it./cdEL96 (174.228.12.142)
Jan29 23:42 [2006] I think the Owens Valley in CA, or eastern Montana sounds good to me for a future DXpedition. Only a few locals and translators, the rest of the band is empty or in the case of the Eastern Sierra, some knife-edge DX. > Yakima CN96 (68.113.19.122)
Jan29 23:40 This is why AM stations are getting translators in droves. They think no one can hear them a mile away due to nasty RFI. > Yakima CN96 (68.113.19.122)
Jan29 23:39 No, probably not the FM band. But I could see the AM band being 'shut down' in the next 10-15 years or so, kind of like the analog TV shutdown. > Yakima CN96 (68.113.19.122)

Jan24 17:00 Remember, RDS Spy will be doing the decoding. RDS Logger is handling the ability to switch frequencies--"scanner." (68.251.246.88)
Jan24 16:49 The interval is a compromise between "time enough to decode" and wanting to cover a lot of frequencies. YMMV. DE N1LF (68.251.246.88)
Jan24 16:40 Then tell RDS Logger to skip locals, scan all other frequencies 200KHZ apart, and hold on each for about 7 seconds. (68.251.246.88)
Jan24 16:39 I set up RDS logger to handle the "scanning part" not the decoding. First of all create a "locals" file with strong local stations. DE N1LF (68.251.246.88)

Jan24 01:52 Allows you to use RDS Spy for super-weak detection on more than one frequency. (68.251.246.88)
Jan24 01:45 I use RDS Logger on #SDR to "scan" the desired frequencies. Then port audio from #SDR to RDS Spy using VAC. This is the best combo I've found. DE Les N1LF EM63 (68.251.246.88)
Jan24 01:43 Too bad no one is updating RDS Spy anymore. Someone needs to make a RDS Logger for the RDS Spy - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (174.255.137.197)
Jan24 01:11 There is a setting on RDS Spy called Super PI detecting that makes RDS Spy detect and decode RDS from a weak station's signal - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (174.255.137.197)
Jan24 01:02 RDS Spy will decode a weak stations PI code & Call Letters while SDR# & the Ray Dees decoder will be displaying partial nonsense - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (174.255.137.197)

Jan20 01:51 [1915] This thing happened in Lexington, KY a couple of years ago. WVLK/590 signed on a translator at 101.1 FM in Lexington, KY.

Jan05 20:42 [20:27] not to be confused with the Martí transmissions in early 90s via the blimp "Fat Albert." What I have was in the mid 2000s, although I do have a 1997 Martí sample from the blimp./cdEL96 (174.228.5.221)

Jan03 21:05 I was later comparing it online with the logo of KTVT 11 in Fort Worth/Dallas (CBS and an O&O) which has the lone star in its logo. I thought it was KHOU's 11 logo, though they were farther than KTVT from here. Kegan EM26 (162.104.97.36)
Jan03 20:59 I remember sometime in the mid 2000s (2007, I think it was) where I was watching channel 11 KOED Tulsa (OETA/PBS), with the NewsHour with Jim Lerher at 5pm. Reception affected by an airplane flying. I saw a station under the KOED signal --A CBS station during its 5pm newscast. I was thinking the 11 logo looked like that of KHOU in Houston.
