Jun24 06:51 (03:39) And then there's the "150 mile TV antenna" -- I think the only way I'd receive stations from 150 miles away is via tropo DX. Kegan EM26TE (75.120.143.173)
Jun24 06:32 Tr Tr WAKY-FM - 103.5 FM Radcliff, KY took out my local WGRR. Rob Cincinnati EM79 (208.102.95.142)

Jun24 05:21 There's been a pirate on 87.5 somewhere in the Nashville area...270 degrees azimuth for me. It plays instrumental music. Been theme to "Downton Abbey" lately.- Wes em66 (72.106.159.96)
Jun24 05:17 Tr 107.9 WLNK Charlotte, NC "The Link" 284 miles- Wes ke4twi em66 TN (72.106.159.96)
Jun24 04:46 Hearing a new local pirate? on 104.7. Playing short classical pieces that all feature a local cellist named John Stuart. No IDs, even at TOH, but with ads for a nearby Mexican restaurant. - Jim-F SATX EL09qn (72.177.237.141)
Jun24 04:37 [03:39] Bad, but compare to this cleverly-worded 1990 ad./cdEL96--> https://www.milk.com/wall-o-shame/dish.html (172.56.27.170)
Jun24 04:35 It may *only* work in the Gulf./cdEL96 (172.56.27.170)
Jun24 03:48 I think I will buy one so I can go to the Gulf of Mexico and watch FREE TV! - JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.70.92)
Jun24 03:39 The person who owns this company should be in Jail for fraud & on A&E's American Greed - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9K3kQeji4E (68.11.147.202)
Jun24 03:38 This was definitely NOT caused by interference N8NU (172.56.11.145)
Jun24 03:37 Very strange: "anti-tropo" knocked out ALL Detroit UHFs for about 10 minutes (just long enough to wipe out the weather forecast), they're back now (172.56.11.145)
Jun24 02:53 Tr 93.7 WQIO with BAS Broadcasting mentions - Christian EN82 Ypsilanti, MI (69.136.136.142)

Jun24 02:02 Tr 88.9 KLDN Lufkin TX "Red River Radio" with station ID, weak... Jack, EM10, ATX (107.77.105.122)
Jun24 01:17 [22:26] Mountains make it difficult for "thru" ducts to form, because of turbulence from altitude differentials. Thermodynamics at work...--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun24 01:13 (21:25) Would that have been EN71? - Christian EN82 Ypsilanti, MI (12.220.146.1)
Jun23 23:57 Bearing to that tower/antenna farm is almost precisely 180 degrees at my new location--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun23 23:56 The least blockage in any of the blocked directions is the south, so the Sears Tower (I refuse to call it the...) signals are not dampered all that much--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun23 23:55 Only something like 85 degrees to 140 degrees bearing is free of blockage from the rest of the highrise building itself--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun23 23:54 Even if I decided to DX from Chicago (in a highrise that puts me well over 700' ASL) and had that pipeline into Detroit, I'll never hear any of them because of wicked co-channel allocations--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun23 23:48 [21:38] Actually 705 feet ASL where I am. I'm not in Chicago yet--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun23 23:47 [21:27] Do tell us! What did'ja hear?--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun23 23:46 [21:21] During that opening there was indeed some Texas stuff as well, but really nothing between like Arkansas/Oklahoma, not a trace--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun23 23:45 [21:21] Hey that's happened only ONCE, ever, lol--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun23 22:26 I don't think the Boston Mtns in Arkansas really *get in the way* - JimT/MO (70.195.70.92)
Jun23 22:24 21:49 - Hmm, I have logged NOLA dtv's before. Most have 950-1000' towers. My elevation is right at 1300'. So a straight line to the NOLA towers with tropo? - JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.70.92)
Jun23 22:19 (22:02) I hope not. -- Kegan EM26TE (75.120.143.173)
Jun23 22:02 I worked all day. Is the Es season over? - JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.84.86)
Jun23 21:52 [2149] My problem is Detroit is that way from me, and every other frequency is clogged with either HD fizz, translator drones, or a combination of the two. And it's only getting worse. de Eric B, Carleton, MI (68.54.251.109)
Jun23 21:49 [21:42] now I know why I don't get any Tropo to the north. It is like there are Mountains in my way to the north and that = No Tropo - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (174.255.133.7)
Jun23 21:49 [21:41] Very well./cdEL96 (172.56.27.170)
Jun23 21:42 Carleton is about 610' ASL. At least, that's how high the grass strip airport is, a few miles outside town. de Eric B, Carleton, MI (68.54.251.109)
Jun23 21:41 The West Coast stuff you're seeing is more than 15 minutes old. Only a desert to PNW path exists now. ... Mike (216.75.233.210)
Jun23 21:38 So, I honestly don't think it will last another season. They don't make 'em loke they used to; old one lasted about twenty years. This one, about seven. de Eric B, Carleton MI (68.54.251.109)
Jun23 21:38 Wow, just saw DXMaps; good thing I didn't have VCR running. Waste. West Coast however, go for it!/cdEL96 (172.56.27.170)
Jun23 21:38 My elevation in my location is 56 ft. The elevation in Chicago IL 594 ft via wikipedia. Now I know why I was not going to reach that Tropo Duct Frank had - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (174.255.133.7)
Jun23 21:37 I might talk to the antenna guy about raising my antenna a few more feet. I think the rotor's going on the fritz anyway -- it rotates clockwise fine. Counterclockwise, the whole structure shakes and it turns VERY jerky. de Eric B, Carleton, MI (68.54.251.109)
Jun23 21:30 But it helps if your elevation is already 30 or 50 or more feet higher than my location to begin with before you put up your antenna 50 to 60 more feet - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (174.255.133.7)
Jun23 21:27 The skip gods did throw me a bone yesterday around dinnertime, with having WDMK-105.9 off for about 20 minutes. Ended up with two new ones thanks to that! They'll have to do better than that, though! de Eric B, Carleton MI (68.54.251.109)
Jun23 21:25 EM40, that happened to me yesterday. 100 miles west of me (AND a couple of hundred feet higher ASL) and he had KS AND WV. I had hardly anything, save for adjacent markets. de Eric B, Carleton, MI (68.54.251.109)
Jun23 21:24 That is why the rule of thumb is always put your UHF antennas as high as possible. - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (174.255.133.7)
Jun23 21:21 I have notice where Tropo ducts have gone over my head (my antennas) when Frank M and others to the far north of me were receiving Tropo from parts of Rio Grande area of Texas & Mexico coast & I had nothing - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (174.255.133.7)
Jun23 21:18 21:05 = 21:05. Sorry. Tim EM86 (166.137.248.104)
Jun23 21:17 (21:01) oh! Not the one I was thinking of! Lol! Tim EM86 (166.137.248.104)
Jun23 21:15 [21:12] Farther stations to the north, northeast & northwest via Tropo that is - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (174.255.133.7)
Jun23 21:12 [21:03] JimT, I think if my location here was more highly elevated like it is at the remote site in Illinois I would get more farther stations via Tropo than I do with the 91XG here - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (174.255.133.7)
Jun23 21:06 I think it was on a hill, and a shopping center way below in eyesight./cdEL96 (172.56.27.170)
Jun23 21:05 (21:03) right near one of the first KPT exits off the interstate, whatever that was./cdEL96 (172.56.27.170)
Jun23 21:03 [20:21] read this AVS Forums post about this antenna - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 http://www.avsforum.com/forum/25-hdtv-technical/2358449-new-televes-long-range-uhf-yagi.html (174.255.133.7)
Jun23 21:03 AM, I think Steve & Mike in Indy are sold on the 91XG's. That's what they're using at the remote dx sites in Illinois - de JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.84.86)
Jun23 21:03 (19:18) cd, I bet I know which McDonald's! Tim EM86 (166.137.248.104)

Jun23 20:46 [20:21] I don't think this antenna can beat my 91XG antenna with preamp but I may be wrong - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (174.255.133.7)

Jun23 19:50 Are there "specs" on it insofar as MHz coverage? Price of course is important too./cdEL96 (172.56.27.170)
Jun23 19:48 This company been in business since 1958; so they are no fly-by-night outfit - KA3JAW FN20jq (216.164.251.79)

Jun23 19:44 Automatically adjusts the level of the received signal to an optimum value (selfregulates); 4G filter - KA3JAW FN20jq (216.164.251.79)
Jun23 19:41 [19:17] This antenna is well ahead of US innovation as it is manufactured in Spain. It has a maximum gain of 29 dBi inside the orange dipole junction box - KA3JAW FN20jq (216.164.251.79)
Jun23 19:29 [19:18] I have a bad experience at McDonalds all the time. The food does not taste like it used to taste back in the 1970's and early 1980's : ( - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (174.255.133.7)
Jun23 19:22 [19:17] I wish my 91XG antenna had a good Preamp built into the black box on there. It would help on cutting db signal loss. You would just use oNE cable antenna to DTV tuner - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (174.255.133.7)
Jun23 19:18 [18:09] Not your fault at all. That being said, I had a bad experience at a Kingsport McDonalds over a year ago. :) /cdEL96 (172.56.27.170)
Jun23 19:17 [18:36] from looking at that video, it looks like that antenna has a Preamp built into that yellow box on antenna. There is a PCB chip board there - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (174.255.133.7)

Jun23 19:14 [18:36] Ahhh but what about 54-88 MHz? If for the Mexican market, you can kiss that goodbye./cdEL96 (172.56.27.170)
Jun23 19:13 [18:07] Lee---do you mean from yesterday? If so, it is a UHF antenna from Solid Signal that I don't have./cdEL96 (172.56.27.170)
Jun23 18:57 [18:36] And, hey, it's not even "ugly" as most people think antennas are.--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun23 18:52 18:46 likewise for me too. Off in an hour or so, until Tuesday. Tim EM86 (166.137.248.104)

Jun23 18:14 2 mHz/NWS... (184.171.237.254)
Jun23 18:13 Rick in South Omaha tried to create a few hours 2 mHzNWS Es pile-ups by leaving Nebraska for a couple days, but it didn't work. But thank you for trying for all of us, Rick--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun23 18:10 Yak: You keep your fingers crossed to the point that they're probably unusable. Just ride the horse in the direction its going ... Mike (73.252.142.49)
Jun23 18:09 Its my fault FM DX crapped out a couple years ago and has lasted up to today. I bought extra receiver, new cable, new recorders, etc... Now I'm more ready than ever so where's the DX? Tim EM86 (75.131.54.162)

Jun23 18:04 I had strong Saskatchewan signals on AM last night...who knows. About ready to stay with AM unless somehow, someway we get 144 MUF in the next several days. Maybe July will have so much Es everyone will be exhausted! > Yakima CN96 (71.94.179.110)

Jun22 05:34 Translators are the cancer of US broadcasting, they almost all interfere with a 'real' station, almost all are just loophole (AM / HD xlators) and most are really pointless... most are anyway. - JVL DXer (24.159.247.130)

The ones in north Phoenix do not come in well until several miles north of me, but some of these are on South Mountain so they come in loud and clear.

Jun22 04:11 (02:40) The 104.9 translator was originally on 94.1 until WWDK and WWKR complained. Also, the 98.3 translator is extremely short spaced to WLCS (and highly directional away from it) - Christian EN82 Ypsilanti, MI (24.128.213.128)
Jun22 04:09 It's nice that Ann Arbor currently has zero translators in its immediate area (however, a couple Detroit translators are strong enough to come in) - Christian EN82 Ypsilanti, MI (24.128.213.128)

Jun22 01:27 Frankly I am surprised in the streaming/Web age that radio (and newspapers) are still relevant. But that's me./ (172.56.26.116)
Jun22 01:26 I can think of *dozens* of stations here I consider "useless" (cough Revolution cough)---but listeners/underwriters/advertisers have spoken./cdEL96 (172.56.26.116)
Jun22 01:25 [01:20] well, relevance is in the eye of the beholder....in other words.../cdEL96 (172.56.26.116)
Jun22 01:20 [00:45] Indeed. But "revitalization" is too little, too late. It makes a viable band less viable, and it won't ultimately make irrelevant stations relevant. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (174.61.184.152)
Jun22 00:52 WVLK 590 Lexington KY had a translator on 101.1 in Lexington, and it received hundreds of complaints by WSGS Hazard listeners - and WSGS themselves IIRC. They were forced to move, they are on 97.3 now. > Yakima CN96 (71.94.179.110)

Jun22 00:02 And as I mentioned on here a while back, older folks in Lincoln City and Salem will be fortunate enough to be in the path of totality for TWO solar eclipses in their lifetimes. They got it for the last one in the lower 48, on Feb 26, 1979 -- Rick in South Omaha EN21af (174.71.87.183)

Jun21 23:47 Yes, total eclipse 8/21/17. I can travel to Warm Springs and see the totality, and I believe there are areas near the Gorge as well. Also passes near John Day. > Yakima CN96 (71.94.179.110)
Jun21 23:41 Many months ago there were discussions here about an August 21 Solar Eclipse. Well, this evening on C-Span3 from 931-1126PM Eastern, there are 2 NASA briefings. Chime in Sherman Oaks will be recording audio this evening (104.172.0.143)
Jun21 23:30 [18:07] Frank, my Davenport numbers as they stand right now are as follows: 274 AMs, 131 FMs, 155 NDBs, and 22 NWRs. Hope to improve a lot on all of those during the all-too-brief 48 hours that I'll be there -- Rick in South Omaha EN21af (66.87.143.31)
Jun21 23:17 CD, I don't disagree. But the FM band should've been expanded down to 76. Or, if they're gonna get translators, maybe AM broadcasters should try running programming worth listening to. Most wouldn't garner audiences on full-power FM's. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (174.61.184.152)

Jun21 21:57 [21:53] Hey that's good news Rick! And that liner is hilarious, but so true (though they could have mentioned the similarly nightmarish traffic at the border crossing too, no?) // Lee VA (73.147.226.145)
Jun21 21:54 [21:32] I have a local AMer–with format almost identical to KGNW–that has TWO xltrs blocking 97.7 and 107.7. "Necessary" indeed, LOL! // Lee VA (73.147.226.145)
Jun21 21:53 Lee, K281CQ _is_ nullable; looks like full copy of KAFE under it. While nulling, the ironic KAFE liner: "From the Canada border crossing to north Seattle traffic in Everett." well, maybe Everett! - Rick N6KCR Seattle (174.61.184.152)

Jun21 21:31 Thanks, Lee. The good news this year is that I'll have usefully gained 94.5 due to a translator's antenna move. Loud signal but easily nullable. I don't know yet whether new 104.1 can be nulled; only transmitting a few seconds at a time today. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (174.61.184.152)
Jun21 21:29 I'm surprised 104.1 KAFE Bellingham isn't raising a stink about a xltr on 104.1. Used to pick them up sometimes when I lived in North Seattle. (Unless xltr is in South Sound area?) // Lee VA (73.147.226.145)

Jun21 21:14 Europe is also more densely populated with active VHF hams at all endpoints, unlike most parts of the USA, so I suspect it looks better than reality on the prop maps - K4NBF EM66 (107.212.207.185)
Jun21 21:09 Europe is to East Coast Dxers what the East Coast is to the West. A place that makes us feel like we don't get our share. All in the eye of the beholder. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (174.61.184.152)

Jun18 22:51 [20:53] Most certainly true. Stereo is ABSOLUTELY trivial to me. I've said before that, if I had to come up with the 3,807 most important questions about an FM station, my 3,807th question would be "Are they stereo?"--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 22:33 [22:30] I have to listen in car. Things get hot in car, including me ... Mike (73.252.142.49)
Jun18 22:32 Dropped to TV 2 - Rich, PA FN11 (174.59.78.48)
Jun18 22:30 Don't say that! Albeit, it's ridiculously hot in the Bay Area today, 86 in SF right now. Other than 30 sec. of skip yesterday, I haven't had usable FM DX in about 10 days. > Yakima CN96 (71.94.179.110)
Jun18 22:29 When you see him it just got real - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9d691d1a63690121f4f96bf9ba1eba56052ba4591bc7b18856c884e4989e297e.jpg (68.11.193.91)

Jun18 22:14 OOps, Tim, this is Dennis FM18fa (71.62.48.151)
Jun18 22:14 Tim, if you're still here, I missed your earflier message about my location. I see you're in Kingsport. I lived there too in 1999-2000 (71.62.48.151)

Jun18 21:36 The only station I have received from Missouri is 94.7 KSHE in Crestwood MO @ 563 miles with a very weak signal - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.11.193.91)
Jun18 21:30 [21:18] Ok thanks JimT. I will have the autologger up and manualy dxing with antennas pointed North to see what I can receive - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.11.193.91)
Jun18 21:21 [21:16] Yep gone. looks like rain or storms around the Yucatan keeping the Tropo from forming cd. - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.11.193.91)
Jun18 21:18 AM, there is about a 100 mile gap in the tropo forecast tomorrow morning for you getting Springfield MO dtv's...almost. I've logged NOLA dtv's before - JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.84.244)
Jun18 21:16 [21:07] Hi cd, I did not see today's Tropo forcast. I am going to look at it now. - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.11.193.91)
Jun18 21:13 [21:07] longest station received on the Sony here is 107.7 XHXAL Xalapa Enríquez, MX @ 834 miles - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.11.193.91)

Jun18 21:02 Hi Curtis & Dennis Welcome. you will see my Tropo post here late at night. I also have a Sony XDR-F1HD radio hooked up to a FM-6 Outdoors - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.11.193.91)
Jun18 20:59 Hi Dennis, saw you mentioned a RTL-SDR. Look at my screen prints of Es from yesterday de Art KA5DWI/7 DM34 AZ http://ka5dwipropagation.blogspot.com/2017/06/having-fun-even-if-2-meters-wont-open.html (24.116.60.65)
Jun18 20:58 I use Cool Edit. I've had a copy of that for over 14 years on this computer. Does what I need it to - En35 (97.127.55.159)
Jun18 20:58 Yeah, I've tried the scheduling part of it before with AM stuff (recording TOH IDs) but it had an annoying hiss every minute. This should work much better - En35 (97.127.55.159)
Jun18 20:58 My wife and I were vacationing one night in Fredereicksburg and I somehow threw my back out the next morning. Had to wear a back brace for days./cdEL96 (172.56.26.67)

Jun18 20:55 You can then open files in something like Audacity to see bandwidth of files to know if there is any dx present in the file - JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.84.244)
Jun18 20:54 [20:03] Just a helpful tip---using the two blank windows below the recent posts on this page create an automatic hyperlink./cdEL96 (172.56.26.67)
Jun18 20:53 Suggestion is don't set bitrate to high (to save on memory) and record in mono if Stereo isn't important to you - JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.84.244)
Jun18 20:53 Justin, you know you can set it up to record hourly (or other time lengths) and it saves to your selected folder - JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.84.244)
Jun18 20:51 Tr 92.9 probably Watertown, SD. Country format - En35 (97.127.55.159)
Jun18 20:50 I had TR before but never registered it. Finally broke down and did it. Needed something that recorded in Mp3. - En35 (97.127.55.159)
Jun18 20:48 Tim, Dennis is in Ladysmith, if you know where that is :-) - JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.84.244)

Jun18 20:38 Sounds like a plan. Thanks for taking time to talk to me. Appreciate it. Dennis (71.62.48.151)

Jun18 20:36 Six meter Es trying to wake up in the PNW - JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.84.244)
Jun18 20:35 Meant to say...get their email addresses, they maybe their cell # to send dx alerts back and forth - JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.84.244)
Jun18 20:34 It would help if you could get familiar with other dxers there in VA, there's a handful of them. Get there emails, then maybe ph# for texting. You can give each other dx alerts, for E skip and tropo alerts - JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.84.244)
Jun18 20:31 JimT...I've been doing it since about 14 and I'm now 63. Igot out of it for quite awhile but , as you said, it stays in your blood. I think it got revived in me when I saw those 2 Cubans on 2 and 4 last July. Dennis (71.62.48.151)
Jun18 20:29 Many of the EDU stations are linked here. They broadcast on several freqs at the same time so they're not usuall quiet. Dennis (71.62.48.151)
Jun18 20:29 I've seen dxers come and go. Its either in your blood or it isn't. I've been doing this since I was 15, I'm 61 now. So I guess its in my blood. If I get cut, I bleed FM dx :-P - JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.84.244)
Jun18 20:27 You shouldn't have any overload issues with the Sony UNLESS you have a 100 kw FM station sitting on top of you (like 1 or 2 miles away) - JimT/MO (70.195.84.244)
Jun18 20:27 Well, I'm retired and I'm getting bored with online Karaoke. I figured I have the stuff here so I may as well get mack into it. I also have and RTL-SDR Dennis (71.62.48.151)
Jun18 20:26 That map will show you when E skip is on the move. You should look to see END POINTS in your area and also what other dxers are reporting on this SKIP LOG - JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.84.244)
Jun18 20:25 maybe just overloading the front end with the locals???? Dennis FN18fa (71.62.48.151)
Jun18 20:25 Dennis, if you're SERIOUS about FM dxing, you need to be able to watch a map, like the six meter map (50 Mhz) - JimT/MO EM37 http://www.dxmaps.com/spots/mapo.php?Lan=E&Frec=50&ML=M&Map=NA&DXC=ING2&HF=N&GL=N (70.195.84.244)
Jun18 20:25 With an XDR, you're ahead of the game already in terms of selectivity, and Es is often quite strong. Curtis (104.240.121.145)
Jun18 20:24 I'm wondering if a discone might help because it's less directional. The antenna is similar to the CM3020 if not the same one. (71.62.48.151)
Jun18 20:24 Try using rabbit ears, or the wire that came with it. I use those on XDRs all the time, with good results. This morning's DX on 107.5 was done with the antenna than came with the tuner. (104.240.121.145)
Jun18 20:23 Thanks Jim. - En35 (97.127.55.159)
Jun18 20:22 JimT, I'm Dennis. I have a ChannelMaster VHF/UHF antenna I bought a few years back because I can't stand paying the cable companie's outrageous prices. I have prenty of locals. (71.62.48.151)
Jun18 20:20 DC area DXers weren't getting much today. Clouds a bit too far north for that latitude. OTOH, hoping this is the midday siesta and we'll have a chance later tonight. > Yakima CN96 (71.94.179.110)
Jun18 20:20 I was a SWL DXr for over 30 yhears. used everything from an old floor model radio, a swl converter module, to an FRG8800. Logged lots of DX but I guess being here in VA it's tough with all the locals. I DID have 2 channel 2 Analog stations popping in and out this morning. Logged RadioRebelde and one other from C uba last summer. Dennis....FM18fa (71.62.48.151)
Jun18 20:17 What kind of TV antenna is hooked to the Sony tuner? And your name? - JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.84.244)
Jun18 20:16 Ladysmith VA dxer, its all about location and timing, being at the right location at the right time. Doesn't sound like you're doing anything wrong - JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.84.244)
Jun18 20:14 You can set it up to record segments of time (mp3 works best) and it doesn't have to run continuously - JimT/MO EM37 (70.195.84.244)
Jun18 20:14 I see you guys ALL catching skip on FM. I've been doing this steadily for 3 days now and Havben't gotten anything more than 150 miles. I'm using a Sony XDR-F1HD and an external TV antenna on a rotor. My location is FM18fa (Ladysmith, VA) ANy ideas?? I have VA stations on most stations. on most (71.62.48.151)
Jun18 20:13 Standard Edition is here ($17.95 registration is lifetime purchase), meaning all upgrades - JimT/MO http://www.totalrecorder.com/productfr_tr.htm (70.195.84.244)
Jun18 20:12 Total Recorder program, many dxers use it. It is SO EASY to use and isn't a system hog - JimT/MO EM37 http://www.highcriteria.com/ (70.195.84.244)
Jun18 20:04 I use a program called Scanner Recorder which only records if the audio gets over a certain threshold. If there are other pgms, I'm all ears - En35 (97.127.55.159)
Jun18 20:03 Zenith Radio Corp docu on Youtube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uROw395rPiM (104.240.121.145)
Jun18 20:01 Well EN35, can you save to another format, maybe even in mono? Chime in Sherman Oaks (104.172.0.143)
Jun18 19:49 And I had no skip this morning on the way back to Minneapolis from EN24. - En35 (97.127.55.159)
Jun18 19:49 My unattended had 12 hours of audio but they're .wav files, so of course the computer crashed. I lost everything from Thursday evening to now - En35 (97.127.55.159)
Jun18 19:05 That one went off when 38 was given over to a full power station. (104.240.121.145)
Jun18 19:03 They ran a card with a picture of the factory, and soft music all day. Antenna was on the factory roof three miles from me. (104.240.121.145)
Jun18 19:02 Funny thing is, when I recall the TV from there, I most fondly remember the Zenith test station on 38. (104.240.121.145)
Jun18 19:01 Started DX'ing there in the early-mid seventies. Had a small SONY TV that was an Es magnet, so to speak. Curtis (104.240.121.145)
Jun18 19:00 I grew up in the Mont Clare/Elmwood Park area. TV DX was good there, on 3 and 4, lots of tropo on UHF. (104.240.121.145)
Jun18 18:59 Best bet for DX in Chicago would be edu band, some of the school stations I never could hear at all. (104.240.121.145)
Jun18 18:58 [18:55] I'm not even going to TRY. My DX'ing (though not my interest in the topic) ENDS entirely up there. Too many other really cool things to do--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 18:57 97.5 used to be open there, I could hear fade ups on the car radio of WHMS Champaign, same for WBNQ Bloomington on 101.5 . Both now are blocked. (104.240.121.145)
Jun18 18:57 Rats, that's not Es, it's just KTRM Kirksville. Actually a little surprising on the "low" antenna--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 18:56 've been filling in the gaps with LPFM. (104.240.121.145)
Jun18 18:55 Well, good luck finding an open frequency in Chicago. They (104.240.121.145)
Jun18 18:55 Es 88.7 right now, but I have no idea what. (This is the clearest-of-the-clear on the low part, and I sometimes sit there)--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 18:53 But I also have to figure out WHEN to learn my way around, if I go for it. Very difficult while having 1,500(?) extra hours stolen this year to administer my move to Chicago--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 18:52 [18:43] sadly no, you have to listen to the audio, log the stations, look up the mileages and bearings (from Girard's spreadsheets or similar) then analyze the data - Steve K3PHL FN20 EPA (69.139.78.88)
Jun18 18:52 [18:36] Yes, quite a learning curve for this semi-technophobe. The time to tackle it is NOT by just diving in and figuring it out during three hours of 108+ MUF--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 18:47 [18:37] 4mHz doesn't sound like much, but keep in mind that, during a good opening, nearly all frequencies are in the ballgame here...especially with my "skip antenna" (an old Winegard 8-element) mounted at only 7 feet to damper the GW stuff--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 18:44 Speaking of MUF cloud movement, I've heard one cloud fade out of FM and another cloud rise in strength. 6/25/13 had high FM MUF to NE/SD, then rapidly turned into WY and UT up to 105.1 at least. Turned down to 90.1 and heard a 'KYCC' mention - Stockton CA in the midst of eastern skip! The eastern MUF dove out of FM and CA was in. > Yakima CN96 (71.94.179.110)
Jun18 18:43 [18:42] WHAT? An SDR actually does mileages and bearings? (Cool, but I think I'd rather have it just do the entire band with that capacity.)--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 18:42 I'm wondering if the 90.5 could actually be deleted? I'm not sure they've been on in the past 2 or 3 years--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 18:42 one good thing with an SDR is tracking MUF and cloud movement through target station distances and azimuth headings from the listening station - Steve K3PHL FN20 EPA (69.139.78.88)
Jun18 18:41 Out here in the PNW, 144 Es is getting more rarer and rarer every year. OTOH, 2010/2011 had at least one or two 144 events each. Three/four deep Es is extremely rare here, best chance is probably via California openings. > Yakima CN96 (71.94.179.110)
Jun18 18:41 WILL-FM can be heard in Lafayette, Indiana. Real hissy, though. Drove there last year. Curtis (104.240.121.145)
Jun18 18:41 Ahh, TRANSLATORS: In Macomb, neither the 90.5 nor the 103.7 have been on this season. Also the full-service 89.7 has been off. How lucky is that?--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 18:40 Otherwise on a high-MUF multistate event, any channel can flip from one state to the next in minutes. > Yakima CN96 (71.94.179.110)
Jun18 18:39 Also, I usually tend to hang out around the higher MUF's that are available. (Why hang out on 93.1 when there's three fighting on 107.5?) That's why my Es totals in say the 94's and 107's aren't that much different--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 18:38 When the MUF is good and I've IDed everything I can get on open channels, then I usually flip over to translators and null them out. > Yakima CN96 (71.94.179.110)
Jun18 18:38 Es 88.7 KFBN Fargo, ND (1176 mi) //stream match after quiet band last 20 min - Steve K3PHL FN20 EPA (69.139.78.88)
Jun18 18:37 I also look for the MUF but make sure to ID stuff in the 90s first. I'm more likely to get an ID on 95.1 than 103.7, because the MUF might drop in seconds. > Yakima CN96 (71.94.179.110)
Jun18 18:37 Yakima's modus operandi is similar to mine. Usually in a cluster of 4 mHz or so, I can continue to find stations transitioning toward possible ID of some kind--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 18:36 No SDR, can't afford the costs and the hard drive space. Nor can I afford a 25 ft antenna, preamp and rotor. If I can get LPFMs via Es on a 3 ft whip, then that's successful enough. > Yakima CN96 (71.94.179.110)
Jun18 18:36 When I lived in Lafayette (1 brief year in the mid-1990s), I could get WPXN 104.9 pretty regularly. I think it was the only station in Illinois that I could hear on FM, non-trop (don't recall that I could get WILL 90.9) -- Rick in South Omaha EN21af (174.71.87.183)
Jun18 18:36 When I get an opening, first thing I do is hop to the highest open freq and listen for anything odd, then I go back down and work out what I had in on the first channel. Curtis (104.240.121.145)
Jun18 18:36 [18:34] The difference: "No people or animals were harmed in the making of this film" hahaha--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 18:35 Only Mexico City FM reception ever for either of us. Central Mexico is FAR rarer here than what one would think reasonable--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 18:34 That SDR stuff always reminded me of fishing with high explosives. (104.240.121.145)
Jun18 18:34 I check the FM dial during Es like it's the only opening we're getting this season. I scramble for IDs and look for the ends of songs and commercials. Then go to the next channel. When the MUF is 108, do you want to hang around for 20 minutes for some station to ID, or do you want to look for new logs on other channels? > Yakima CN96 (71.94.179.110)
Jun18 18:33 ...and about an HOUR LATER, Ralph had XHRED which is something like 1,630 miles for him--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 18:33 [18:29] Honorable mention...or, maybe, this is actually stranger...and ALSO ON 88.1; Es this time. I had XHRED (1,545 miles)... (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 18:32 Wife wanted a house, and this was the one for her. Damn good place, edge of town, nothing to the South. Curtis (104.240.121.145)
Jun18 18:32 it's the difference between fishing with one rod and reel versus dragging a huge net through the lake and taking half the fish - Steve K3PHL FN20 EPA (69.139.78.88)
Jun18 18:31 [18:29] True, but it was rare - he didn't like the complexity of it all. TV is pretty straightforward and there aren't 74 signals on one channel in a large target area--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 18:31 having an SDR is a blessing and a curse, I monitor and post what is heard live here while recording, but reviewing 48 channels of audio takes weeks/months.. still reviewing 7-15-2016 - Steve K3PHL FN20 EPA (69.139.78.88)
Jun18 18:31 I moved a whopping three miles north to Loda a year ago. I can see Paxton from my DX room. With binocs, I can see the clock tower. Curtis (104.240.121.145)
Jun18 18:30 ...and I called Ralph Strobel in Muncie to tell him he should look, and he was already there. Neither of us ever heard that Tr catch again--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 18:29 Jeff dabbled at FM some. I did too, until the end of the analog era. Then it was what I had left. Curtis (104.240.121.145)
Jun18 18:29 The strangest "hearing something at the same time" I remember was back around 1979(?) in Toledo, when at 0300 I heard 700-watt WRFN-088.1 Nashville signing off... (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 18:27 [18:18] Um wait...Jeff was NOT known for being an FM-DXer. But that wasn't me either (I don't remember hearing a pirate there)--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 18:27 Curtis, last I knew, you were in Paxson. When did you move to Loda? -- Rick in South Omaha EN21af (174.71.87.183)
Jun18 18:25 I am almost never a night owl when I'm on road trips, often up by 09:00. It's entirely different--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 18:24 (a/k/a lack of regulated circadian rhythm, using the Madison Avenue terminology) as though I were, instead, a totally blind person--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 18:23 [17:21] Though until I move to Chicago entirely, at least, the general night-owlery probably continues. My whole days/nights are in artificial light, probably to where I have "Non-24"... (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 18:23 [18:14] When stations stream automated versions of old formats, it's for image. "You wanted this, we heard you." But most of the time they're thrown together with no passion or clue. (Much like the rest of radio these days.) - Rick N6KCR Seattle (174.61.184.152)
Jun18 18:22 Me, I'm a "sport DX'er'. I sit in front of the radio with a notepad. Curtis (104.240.121.145)
Jun18 18:20 But yes, one square can make the difference. Jeff used to have a TV pipeline to Cuba I could only dream of. (104.240.121.145)
Jun18 18:20 The "learning curve" would mostly consist of new mindsets of organizing things, more so than the technology itself--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 18:20 My QTF was 240, and I was mostly hearing Lubbock area at the time on the rest of the dial. de Eric B, Carleton, MI (68.54.251.109)
Jun18 18:19 I had a brief fadeup on 87.9 about an hour or two ago with what sounded like smooth jazz; it quickly faded out, never to return. de Eric B, Carleton, MI (68.54.251.109)
Jun18 18:19 [17:44] No, highly unlikely. Too late to start this season. I'd have to "go modern" in January or something, and get the immense learning curve out of the way first--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 18:19 Don't worry about the name, all life long people keep calling me Carl... I must look like one of those. Curtis (104.240.121.145)
Jun18 18:18 One time he was hearing the same Florida pirate on 87.9 I was getting in Rantoul. Curtis (104.240.121.145)
Jun18 18:16 30 miles from Champaign, in Loda. Jeff sometimes heard the same stuff I did. Curtis (104.240.121.145)
Jun18 18:16 KDAM flipped to 'The Current' with Hot AC. The Dam used to be their format...lots of unhappy fans, so they are now streaming the old format online-only. > Yakima CN96 (71.94.179.110)

Jun18 18:15 CURTIS, not Chris. One of those pairs of names I always confound. (Also Kathy/Karen, Steve/Scott, and a couple others)--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 18:14 [17:27] So some of these stations have ONLY streams that don't match their over-the-air at all? I've seen similar in other past loggings elsewhere. Seems like wasted effort for them, to me--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 18:12 [18:11] Well, over eastern Kansas (about 300 miles) and over northern Indiana (about 300 miles)--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 18:11 [17:12] And yes I guess he IS saying he's in Champaign, haha. (I couldn't remember where you were from, Chris.)--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
Jun18 18:11 Darn it Frank - that cloud must have been over you, for the umpteenth time. Cloud moving west and strengthening would help. > Yakima CN96 (71.94.179.110)
Jun18 18:09 [17:17] Not sure where curtis is in EN50, but "one grid over" can be deceiving. If he's hear Champaign, that's 140 miles east of me. Pretty crucial--Frank M. (184.171.237.254)
