May27 22:59 Tropo is starting to build from the west. starting to receive Beaumount / Port Arthur stations on FM - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.105.8.204)
May27 22:35 @Jack While normally I'd say XHMZI is Monclova, it's more Región Carbonífera than Monclova though of course it reaches into the larger market. It's one of the most formidable station coverage patterns in Mexico - Raymie DM43 (70.176.21.145)
May27 22:29 Heat index was 108F last hour at Austin Bergstrom Intl Airport, summer has arrived *sweatdrop* .. Jack, EM10, Austin TX (107.77.105.54)
May27 22:17 Texas Roy = Roy Henderson, a known violater of FCC rules - Christian EN64 Manistee, MI (66.87.115.159)
May27 22:14 Tr 100.1 WVIB. At least Texas Roy (who also owns WBNZ) did manage to shut off WCUZ's transmitter - Christian EN64 Manistee, MI (66.87.115.159)
May27 22:10 And yes, 92.3 WBNZ is still running dead air (with stereo pilot) - Christian EN64 Manistee, MI (66.87.115.159)
May27 22:09 Tr 105.7 WSRW with no sign of WAPL - Christian EN64 Manistee, MI (66.87.115.159)
May27 22:08 Tr 106.3 a three way mess of WMXG (mostly on top), WGLM, and WWMN. Normally WWMN is on top - Christian EN64 Manistee, MI (66.87.115.159)
May27 22:07 Tr 100.7/102.9/103.7 Milwaukee in strong - Christian EN64 Manistee, MI (loving the less crowded dial back home this weekend) (66.87.115.159)
May27 21:41 I missed the 82F temp & 82F with = showing Fog just off the coast of Corpus Christi TX -amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 http://www.wpc.ncep.noaa.gov/sfc/lrgnamsfcwbg.gif (68.105.8.204)
May27 21:36 80F degree Temp & 79F dewpoint just off the coast of Brownsville TX right now on the weather map - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 http://www.wpc.ncep.noaa.gov/sfc/lrgnamsfcwbg.gif (68.105.8.204)
May27 21:29 McAllen, TX is at 101 F degrees right now. Fuel for good Rio Grande Tropo tonight. - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 https://www.wunderground.com/q/zmw:78501.1.99999 (68.105.8.204)
May27 21:20 yeah Jack I only received Monterrey once here. - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xkS8xYyT3qM (68.105.8.204)
May27 21:12 It would be great if this tropo can go further south for me than just northern Tamaulipas and Coahuila down to Monclova...Monterrey would be nice to get... Jack, EM10, Austin TX (107.77.105.54)
May27 21:01 [20:53] Hopefully we will get some good Tropo conditions tonight Jack. - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.105.8.204)
May27 20:53 Already getting 200-mile tropo to Corpus Christi with 93.9 in before 4pm local time... Jack, EM10, Austin TX (107.77.105.54)
May27 20:48 I'm dropping a line to Life and we'll see from there. 100 kW at 1259 miles - would also be a new frequency as last year a translator was clogging it! - Raymie DM43 (70.176.21.145)
May27 20:44 I know the Christian AC ran a liner with a listener saying "My name is Amber". Is it Life 101.9 Waterloo IA? I can't find another high-power station with that format though a 250-watt Christian CHR translator exists in the suburbs of St. Louis - Raymie DM43 (70.176.21.145)
May27 20:40 That's roughly halfway between the two logs I had last year, KJSR and KWOZ, so KC is definitely in the mix. I can't find a 101.9 with a Christian format in the skip area. I didn't bother trying to get an ID as K-Love is notoriously hard to nail - Raymie DM43 (70.176.21.145)
May27 20:38 The only high-powered 103.3 with a matching format in skip distance is KPRS in Kansas City which would be at about 1047 miles - Raymie DM43 (70.176.21.145)
May27 20:36 So I'm thinking a bit about the two unIDs I had from the Es opening the other day. One was Christian AC/CHR on 101.9 and another was an urban station on 103.3 - Raymie DM43 (70.176.21.145)
May27 20:09 An upper level H system that gets above 1020 millibars in the tropics region will develop intense tropo conitions. The H sitting over the eastern Gulf is right at 1020 mb - de JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.9.146)
May27 20:06 I remember in my Earth Sciences classes when we studied meteorology, a low level H system (near the Earth's surface) will have a very small effect on developing tropo conditions - de JimT/MO (70.195.9.146)
May27 19:58 most of the time Hepburn maps are spot on right. thinking it was like you said JimT, the high pressure area must have been at the surface and not below and that will make or break the Tropo forcast in a given area - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.105.8.204)
May27 19:50 [19:40] Don't know if this Tropo event will happen here overnight and tomorrow morning. last nights / morning forcast was forcasted to be intense here but was not. - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.105.8.204)
May27 19:50 [19:40] Don't know if this Tropo event will happen here overnight and tomorrow morning. last nights / morning forcast was forcasted to be intense here but was not. - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.105.8.204)
May27 19:40 New Hepburn tropo forecast out. I hope you guys along the Gulf coast enjoy the intense tropo overnight and tomorrow morning - de JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.9.146)
May27 19:27 Log updated. Took an hour and 15 minutes to do so - En35 http://www.ubstudios.com/dx/tcfm.html (97.127.6.173)
May27 19:20 Richard, you are correct about KMUW's tower location. It is just east of Colwich. I was thinking Colwich was SW, but it is N-NW of Wichita - de JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.9.146)
May27 19:19 It beats my previous record by a little over 20 miles from Sheridan WY to North Carolina. I'll take it. - En35 (97.127.6.173)
May27 19:09 [18:42] Congrats, En35. Thursday was great and wild Es day for sure. - Jim-F SATX EL09qn (72.177.237.141)
May27 18:50 Looking at FCC query, it appears KMUW & KSNW are at the same location! - RNA/OK (70.215.192.146)
May27 18:47 thats a long one En35. hopefully you will get more - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.105.8.204)
May27 18:46 Coorection: Looking at Google Earth, it shows KMUW in north Wichita - de RNA/OK (97.41.133.68)
May27 18:42 Going through my logs from Thursday, XHAAA 93.1 Reynosa is my farthest Es catch of all time at 1449 miles - En35 (97.127.6.173)
May27 18:32 I believe KMUW shares a tower with KSNW TV & is west-northwest of downtown Wichita - de RNA/OK EM16gj (70.215.192.146)
May27 17:52 That's why its good to use a reliable web calculator and avoid street addresses, city centers, etc - JimT/MO (70.195.9.146)
May27 17:51 I think the KMUW tower is like 20 miles SW of the center of Wichita which adds distance from the east - de JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.9.146)
May27 17:47 I may need to correct what may now be inaccurate distance listings on some of my loggings. Kegan EM26TE (75.120.135.221)
May27 17:45 *statute, not statue. Lousy spell check. Kegan EM26TE (75.120.135.221)
May27 17:42 The daftlogic site is what helped me come up with the distance from the tower of KOTS-1230 Deming, New Mexico to my house in west Omaha, where I heard it in Aug 2002. 893 miles, IIRC, which makes KOTS my best "graveyard" catch from any of my QTHs -- Rick in South Omaha EN21af (66.87.142.197)
May27 17:38 [16:41] Kegan, the daftlogic URL is my go-to for accurate-distance determination, too. Beats the tar out of Http://www.indo.com/distance, which I had been using previously -- Rick in South Omaha EN21af (66.87.143.30)
May27 17:33 Nhc.NOAA.gov/gccalc.shtml page says the coordinates between my location and KMUW is 206 statue miles. Kegan EM26TE (75.120.135.221)
May27 17:06 funny thing is the Google pin is east of the little lake, towers are west of the lake - JimT/MO (70.195.9.146)
May27 17:03 37 46 26 N 97 30 52 W copy and paste those coordinates into Google search (not maps) it will show the map, click on it then go to satellite view, one of the two tower is where KMUW's antenna is - de JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.9.146)
May27 17:00 Checking for that now - Kegan (75.120.135.221)
May27 16:56 Kegan, are you using the tower coordinates for KMUW? They are at Colwich, west of Wichita - de JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.9.146)
May27 16:54 Trying Google Maps - Kegan (75.120.135.221)
May27 16:45 Closer to 169 miles - per the worldatlas calcuator indication - Kegan (75.120.135.221)
May27 16:43 And 168 nautical miles to Wichita according to the site's calculation - Kegan (75.120.135.221)
May27 16:42 Oh no KTXR playing "Telephone Man" by Meri Wilson..../cdEL96 (172.56.27.27)
May27 16:41 daftlogic says the distance to Wichita is 194 miles - ...?... - Kegan (75.120.135.221)
May27 16:34 One of the last of the good-guy DJ's./cdEL96 (172.56.27.27)
May27 16:34 Yes I am hearing Wayne Glenn./cdEL96 (172.56.27.27)
May27 16:31 CD, Mr. Wizard, the old record collector, is on right now, just played "Blinded Me By Science" by Thomas Dolby - de JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.9.146)
May27 16:28 Jim I think I'll tune your KTXR online now./cdEL96 (172.56.27.27)
May27 16:26 Memo? Do we still send those? Anyway it's scorching hot here, and I might not leave here until 4pm EDT/cd (172.56.27.27)
May27 16:26 [16:23] Haha exactly, Jim! "Great minds..." // Lee VA (73.147.226.145)
May27 16:25 [16:20] And, to your point, that IS my DX from the Es event on July 20 last year! // Lee VA (73.147.226.145)
May27 16:24 [16:20] Thanks am! No *direct* way to save, but I just create the map and save a screen shot. // Lee VA (73.147.226.145)
May27 16:24 CD, didn't you get the MEMO this is Dxing 101 day?? I know its a holiday weekend, but class IS in session :-P - JimT/MO (70.195.9.146)
May27 16:23 16:20...you could do a screen capture if the website doesn't give a Save option - JimT/MO (70.195.9.146)
May27 16:22 ...a box will pop up. You need the Lat/Long that is in parenthesis. Write them down where you won't lose them. Then you use them with the WTFDA FM db for distances - JimT/MO (70.195.9.146)
May27 16:21 OK now, enough of this black print. :)/cdEL96 (172.56.27.27)
May27 16:20 [16:12] that really looks nice. wish that you could save an image to archive the events. You can see the total picture of all of your DX in a DX event. - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.105.8.204)
May27 16:20 It loads to France. Type grid square in box at bottom of page and click Locate. Once there, zoom in to your house, change to Satellite view, click on your property where antennas are located.... (70.195.9.146)
May27 16:20 pretty cool to that Google maps can do this almost straight from my DX spreadsheet! // Lee VA (73.147.226.145)
May27 16:19 Great website to get EXACT Lat/Long for your antennas - JimT/MO EM37 http://qthlocator.free.fr/index.php (70.195.9.146)
May27 16:18 Sorry, link to map: // Lee VA https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Fqlvi1pjougq8pkJz--_oNID1H0&usp=sharing (73.147.226.145)
May27 16:18 I've only done my locals and my Es logs so far (tropo logs to come), but still cool to see how everything maps out... // Lee VA (73.147.226.145)
May27 16:18 I had used worldatlas flight distance calcuation for the distance - but not certain on accuracy. Kegan (75.120.135.221)
May27 16:17 Also started playing around with mapping the stations I've logged onto a Google map... // Lee VA (73.147.226.145)
May27 16:16 That's great Jim! I primarily use the WTFDA db for transmitter coordinates for my logbook, a great resource! // Lee VA (73.147.226.145)
May27 16:12 Almost ALL of the Lat/Long listings for radio stations in the WTFDA FM db are either the tower or the radio station itself. All you need is the Lat/Long of where your antenna sits in your yard - JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.9.146)
May27 16:12 Of course, the maddening thing: you can't save your entires :\ // Lee VA (73.147.226.145)
May27 16:12 I've always loved how it draws connecting line between the locations...gives really nice results like this: // Lee VA http://d.pr/i/CmDKJ (73.147.226.145)
May27 16:10 I marked off points/lines every 100 mi; I colored in a "pink area" 900-1100 miles (for Es)./cdEL96 (172.56.27.27)
May27 16:10 The editors did a thorough research of the most current and most accurate (and relatively easy to use) measurement tools on the web - de JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.9.146)
May27 16:09 IF you want to end questions about accurate distances, try the measurement tools linked on WTFDA FM db - JimT/MO (70.195.9.146)
May27 16:09 I remember when I drew concentric circles around my QTH for distances.... Because of curvature of the earth, I wasn't very accurate./cdEL96 (172.56.27.27)
May27 16:08 I've been using this site for a few years...let's you map from addresses or coordinates // Lee VA http://tjpeiffer.com/crowflies.html (73.147.226.145)
May27 16:06 Interesting! Always wondered where folks got their distance calculations from! // Lee VA (73.147.226.145)
May27 16:05 [16:02] that is true. Good point JimT. - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.105.8.204)
May27 16:02 The main mis-giving with any website that uses addresses, if you're wanting to connect point B in MX or Central America and no address...???? Now you HAVE to use Lat/Long - JimT/MO (70.195.9.146)
May27 16:00 Looks like MY tropo forecast (my area) did'nt develop. Bring on the Es! - JimT/MO (70.195.9.146)
May27 16:00 here is the quick weblink that I use to go to FreeMapTools - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 https://www.freemaptools.com/how-far-is-it-between.htm (68.105.8.204)
May27 16:00 I like using the NOAA distance calculator now that I know how accurate it is - JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.9.146)
May27 15:57 [15:45] cd, I use that site too. I put my street adderss in and that is I do for calculation of my distance - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.105.8.204)
May27 15:57 WTFDA FM db has the Lat/Long for KMUW tower (most listings in db are like that). Use it in Google Maps, go to satellite view, you can see the towers (yes there are two there) - de JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.9.146)
May27 15:54 There is even the link to get your EXACT Lat/Long for your antennas :-) (70.195.9.146)
May27 15:53 ....from your qth Lat/Long to the tower Lat/Long. The steps are right there. All you need is the Lat/Long where your antennas sit in your yard :-) de JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.9.146)
May27 15:52 Better yet Kegan, go to WTFDA FM db, go to the Help page (upper left button). On the Help page, there is a quick way to calculate your EXACT distance.... (70.195.9.146)
May27 15:45 Take 2. I use FreeMapTools, but living 12 mi W of Pembroke Pines downtown, I add or subtract accordingly; I round down to the lower 10 mi./cdEL96 (172.56.27.27)
May27 15:44 I use FreeMapTools, but living 12 (172.56.27.27)
May27 15:42 I suppose I add 9 miles to the calculation I was using before... Kegan (75.120.135.221)
May27 15:38 I should look into a distance calculator that can measure distances to grid squares. Kegan EM26TE (75.120.135.221)
May27 15:37 [15:12] I had thought it was 169 miles - I must have the wrong distance info - Kegan (75.120.135.221)
May27 15:33 [14:08] Wow, didn't know that either. Great tip...thanks, Rick! // Lee VA (73.147.226.145)
May27 15:22 KMUW has appeared here as Es twice in '17/cdEL96 (172.56.27.27)
May27 15:12 Kegan, KMUW is *about* 178 miles from tower to your house (not sure where your house is in EM26te) - JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.9.146)

May27 14:48 I heard probably 3 stations (at least) on 89.1 within the last few minutes. Kegan EM26TE (75.120.135.221)
May27 14:45 I haven't forgotten about Es, wouldn't it be grand if you had a major Es opening in parallel to a tropo opening??? That's called a party - JimT/MO (70.195.9.146)
May27 14:44 [14:38] might be getting ready to get intense right now. I am hearing sharp rapid fluttering of signals and swapping of signals on the FM band right now - anfntvdtvbrla EM40 (68.105.8.204)
May27 14:41 It will be the latest start date of the Es season here. - de Jon in FN03 (216.121.182.130)

May27 14:19 AM, while you are *watching* the H pressure boundary line, be sure to check the temp/dp reports, fog, windspeed to see how close tropo condx are to you. You have to look at individual reporting stations - JimT/MO (70.195.9.146)
May27 14:16 looks like the black boundary line is on the move moving west into the Florida parishes of Louisiana - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 http://www.wpc.ncep.noaa.gov/sfc/lrgnamsfcwbg.gif (68.105.8.204)

May27 14:05 CD, if you have an iPhone, you needn't even install an app. Just tell Siri "Shazam this", the phone will "listen" for a few seconds and come back with the title and artist. Often even a poor signal gives it enough to recognize. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (174.61.184.152)

May27 13:41 Lower left of the map has the TIME STAMP of when that map was updated - JimT/MO (70.195.9.146)
May27 13:41 13:38...yes AM. That is the primary H pressure (cap/dome/ridge) indicator that you want to keep an eye on. Remember to refresh the map if you've kept it open for several hrs - de JimT/MO (70.195.9.146)
May27 13:39 Tr 101.3 KMMZ Crane TX "La Caliente" with ID, SS mx.... Jack, EM10, Austin TX (107.77.105.54)
May27 13:38 ....it just gives you an idea of format on an station IF it becomes an unID. Most stations run a pretty tight format/playlist anymore (even satellite) - JimT/MO (70.195.9.146)
May27 13:38 [13:32] and it is the black line on the map on the NOAA link you posted to the east of me will move west as the High pressure moves west up & over Florida and into the Gulf - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.105.8.204)
May27 13:37 Now....if I am monitoring 107.3 & hear Sweet Home AL or Hotel CA, it's WXGL for sure. ;)/cdEL96 (172.56.27.27)
May27 13:37 CD, that's why I suggested an app like Shazam. You don't have to know who is singing the song, what the title is, or if you even care.... :-) (70.195.9.146)
May27 13:36 .....it may be on a satellite, amongst other stations that use the same one./cdEL96 (172.56.27.27)
May27 13:35 My policy about hearing a song: I would have to know two of them back-to-back in an unID---and even then....>>>/cdEL96 (172.56.27.27)
May27 13:34 Per Wiki (yeah I know), the move of COL to Jay is a CP---but maybe they already ID'd as such./cdEL96 (172.56.27.27)
May27 13:32 [13:30] Les, I never even heard of that station! Jay is too small to be called a hamlet I think!/cdEL96 (172.56.27.27)
May27 13:32 [13:17] I am starting to understand what I am looking for. it is that white line to the east of me needs to move west and go over or past Louisiana for me to get in on this Tropo am I right JimT? - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.105.8.204)

May27 13:27 CD, do you make a note of songs (artist/title) in case it goes as an unID? If you don't know the song, Shazam app can tell you what it is. Free download FYI - de JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.9.146)

May27 13:25 Late last evening I had a 107.3 with hot AC or CHR but then Eagle took over. May or may not have been Pensacola./cdEL96 (172.56.27.27)
May27 13:24 When dew point almost matches/matches temp (air saturation), you will get fog (if it isn't already raining!)..... (70.195.9.146)
May27 13:24 I am *just south* of maybe the biggest red blob I have seen yet on APRS./cdEL96 (172.56.27.27)
May27 13:22 Find a wx station on that map....the = sign is wx station was reporting fog; temp and dew point are two numbers together, temp is red, dp is green. - JimT/MO (70.195.9.146)
May27 13:21 Dxers that use the NOAA map also need to know how to read windspeed and temp/dew point/fog indicators on the NOAA map. Those are directly connected to tropo - JimT/MO (70.195.9.146)
May27 13:19 It looks like tropo will eventually open up to Louisiana during midday to afternoon. But your evening map shows another gradient line is forecast to develop, east of LA - JimT/MO (70.195.9.146)
May27 13:17 JimT/Mo thanks for that resource! Really aids my understanding of how troposcatter is working. DE Les N1LF (75.143.113.93)
May27 13:17 AM, on your map link, you will see the H crosses the FL panhandle. The gradient (white line) pulls all the way back in LA... (70.195.9.146)

May27 13:13 [13:00] thanks for the link JimT - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.105.8.204)
May27 13:11 There are a lot of things on that map that can tell you where the tropo *should be* without even checking the TV/radio - JimT/MO (70.195.9.146)
May27 13:06 Anyway, I use that *line drawing* NOAA map in conjunction with Hepburn's forecast maps. Gives me a better understanding of the forecast/current conditions - JimT/MO (70.195.9.146)
May27 13:04 The H pressure must be a surface H because it is blocking most of the dx for LA. Most APRS towers are around 100', so their signal is getting over that pressure gradient - JimT/MO (70.195.9.146)
May27 13:03 That line (gradient) is the west boundary of the H pressure dome that is responsible for the >FL tropo - JimT/MO (70.195.9.146)
May27 13:01 Locate the H pressure east of FL, you'll see the continuous black line that kind of wraps around the H pressure... (70.195.9.146)

May27 12:50 That gradient line runs N-S just across FL panhandle, that's the E-S boundary right now until it moves or dissipates - de JimT/MO (70.195.9.146)
May27 12:49 Les is *inside* the High pressure circle (first gradient). Dxers in Louisiana have a gradient boundary line N-S that acts like a stairstep. - de JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.9.146)

May26 02:17 [02:10] What I heard, Raymie, was "Equis-Ahchah-Ah-Double...", then it was lost. The "double" part lends itself to the Spanish pronounciation of "W".

May25 21:17 Es (on San Antonio GT) SS noticias on 65.75 MHz (ch 3), very faint; likely Guatemala or Honduras, based on Jack's BLZ log./cdEL96 (172.56.26.154)
May25 21:16 BTW, La Paz in GT is just a village (less than 1,000 pop). Would have to be making some kind of news to hear them mentioned on radio - de JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.9.146)
May25 21:16 Thanks Jim. It's back in with local ads and news, hopefully you're getting it too.. Jack, EM10, Austin TX (107.77.105.54)

May25 21:06 Maybe my 89.9 mentioning La Paz was actually in Guatemala based on the earlier report? Jack, EM10, Austin TX (107.77.105.54)
May25 21:05 [20:55] Great---that is still an unheard country (via FM) for me./cdEL96 (172.56.26.154)
May25 21:04 I think my 88.9 in Ladyville is a relog, will have to check...that heavy accented English was unmistakable, but gone now... Jack, EM10, Austin TX (107.77.105.54)
May25 21:00 Just saw that on DXmaps (re CN14) - lol! It would be cool for a container ship to operate mobile in the Pacific however... > Yakima CN96 (71.94.179.110)
May25 20:58 I know there's a 90.1 in La Paz, maybe that was bleeding over 89.9? > Yakima CN96 (71.94.179.110)

May25 20:53 There is no 89.9 FM in BCS - Raymie DM43 (70.176.21.145)
May25 20:47 One unid was NPR/PRI at 1930 and 2000, then a station in SS at 2010 mentioning La Paz, maybe Baja California on that one? Jack, EM10, Austin TX (107.77.105.54)
May25 20:45 Had several fadeups on 89.9 while driving home but deep fades happened at the wrong times so nothing ID... Jack, EM10, Austin TX (107.77.105.54)
May25 20:42 [20:36] Matt, that's surprising. From Bakersfield (1974-86) I got Omaha several times with massive signals. KEZO, 96.1?, the CHR on what--98.5? KMTV and Channel 6 (WOW-TV?) - Rick N6KCR Seattle (174.61.184.152)
May25 20:38 [19:28] XHQS-FM is on 90.*3*...is that what you got, RNA? - Raymie DM43 (70.176.21.145)
May25 20:36 But I've had multiple openings to San Diego and Sacramento, and those "Highway Radio" desert stations KHWY/Z - Matt EN21 (132.3.49.82)
May25 20:36 There are places like Bakersfield and Fresno I've never heard in 18 years here. - Matt EN21 (132.3.49.79)
May25 20:35 It suffices to say any opening to the western US would be most welcome! - Matt EN21 (132.3.49.82)
May25 20:35 100.3 was KWIQ Moses Lake, they moved up to 100.5 in 2013. > Yakima CN96 (71.94.179.110)
May25 20:34 I've heard only one Omaha station, KEZO 92.3. And if Blair counts, KBLR 97.3. > Yakima CN96 (71.94.179.110)
May25 20:33 I think I had a Moses Lake FM... 100.3 maybe? -Going on foggy memories of an againg mind that has run out of space for trivial content. - Matt EN21 (132.3.49.79)
May25 20:32 I have had Tri Cities yes, 89.1 RIchland KFAE most commonly. - Matt EN21 (132.3.49.78)
May25 20:31 Matt I know Rick would agree with you. I wish I was still in St. Cloud. Very little IBLOK en35 (174.53.128.29)
May25 20:31 I'm amazed at how little Nebraska I get, compared to living in The Dalles, OR 1987-93. Many late-night NE and MN openings and some really intense daytime dial-fillers. Not sure how much of the difference is location (lots, I imagine) and how much is solar cycle. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (174.61.184.152)
May25 20:29 We can link up in Grand Island. Much harder in Des Moines. If I recall you've heard Tri-Cities and Moses Lake in the past. > Yakima CN96 (71.94.179.110)
May25 20:26 There are many better places... 100 miles east into southern Iowa the dial is far better. But can't afford to live there! - Matt EN21 (132.3.49.81)
May25 20:24 Yeah I know. I have no patience. I lost it two years ago in the move to Minnesota. In a box somewhere. En35 (174.53.128.29)
May25 20:24 Es 93.1 / 95.1 Yuma have been in past 10 minutes. Extremely thin path. > Yakima CN96 (71.94.179.110)
May25 20:23 Matt, the rest of Nebraska is calling you. Grand Island, Kearney, North Platte...much better than Omaha. > Yakima CN96 (71.94.179.110)
May25 20:22 I found other hobbies instead. The FM dial has gotten so much more crowded here. - Matt EN21 (132.3.49.78)
May25 20:21 There has been so little here in recent years. Nothing to report! - Matt EN21 (132.3.49.79)
May25 20:19 It's early, Justin. Things usually heat up around Memorial Day. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (174.61.184.152)

May25 20:17 Recording every day. Past week with two radios into different computers. All I got was tropo. En35 (174.53.128.29)
May25 20:17 That Yuma path generally isn't productive for me. Bad frequency matches, I think. But anything I ever get is very weak with shaky fades. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (174.61.184.152)
May25 20:15 [1835] Long time no see Matt. I haven't heard Omaha since 2014... > Yakima CN96 (71.94.179.110)
May25 20:13 The Es has been flirting for the last 40 minutes, but very weak and in and out; I missed the activity this morning BR in AZ DM34 (24.117.76.69)

May25 20:07 Es 95.1 with country music > Yakima CN96 (71.94.179.110)
May25 20:04 Based on what I missed, I could have heard an hour of Yuma all over again. > Yakima CN96 (71.94.179.110)
May25 20:04 Maybe I can get the consolation prize of a decode from KHSV 2. > Yakima CN96 (71.94.179.110)
