May27 15:28 Already done Saul. Tnx info. Skip went from N WI to Ontario. Tom MM EL97tg (
May27 15:18 Tom, I'll still see how North Bay IDs at TOH. Working now but can listen later. At very least I'd say log it as North Bay, as Timmins is much father north of what else you heard. Or can log as "synchro" - nI do that with Wisconsin Public Radio where there are multiple stations on a give channel. Saul (
May27 15:12 Lee, there's also another page here where only messages with the initial propagation indicator (Es, Ms, Tr etc) are displayed. It's good for quick checking without the rest of the discussion. Fake posts with those indicators needlessly post on that page. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (
May27 15:03 Is fun on here prohibited or allowed? All should know I mean no harm. LM/FM29 (
May27 15:01 Sometimes one needs to lighten the mood, and stand out trying to. Yes red really means something, but some times it can help with calming. LM/FM29 (
May27 14:44 Recorder going today, skip or not. En25 (
May27 14:43 Based on your skip area, North Bay would be more likely. - de Jon in FN03 (
May27 14:39 Missed the opening yesterday because I was busy taking care of my sister's dog (I was also in Grand Rapids, where most frequencies are occupied by locals or I-BLOC) - Christian EN64 Manistee, MI (
May27 14:30 Saul was hour 2 of Up North. CBC Radio 1 Northern Service. Could have been North Bay. I did hear Sudbury, and a band, from Winnipeg playing there. The announcer said he was going to talk to them in studio. I concede! Hi! Tom MM EL97tg (
May27 14:28 Virginia Lee - were you able to confirm Cancun Mexico? de N8UUP Bill EN82 (
May27 14:26 I remember a time when red text meant an actual log Mike-La (
May27 14:25 14:20 Mousenik says see how the red log reports are worthless (
May27 14:20 Es no ESKIP FOR YOU. Just kidding, cheer up I also get mad but get over it. LM/FM29 (
May27 13:55 Take some theraflu, then come back here in four hours. You will feel better - KA3JAW FN20jq (
May27 13:54 North Bay is much more likely than Timmins. I will listen here to see how it IDs. Saul (
May27 13:45 I'm becoming sick, reading these posts....I really missed out./cdEL96 (
May27 13:39 Yesterday: CBCJ CBC Radio one, Sudbury, Timmins. Nice ID Tom K4MM EL97tg (
May27 13:37 I'm almost sure it is, though there may be local news differences ... I have heard both ... but determined that via an echo effect, and with Timmins in on other channels. Saul (
May27 13:37 Yes Saul.. (
May27 13:03 CBCN in North Bay is // to CBCJ, no? - de Jon in FN03 (

May27 05:52 Thankfully, I did receive 106.1 CHWE Winnipeg via Es, and KKMV Rupert ID via Ms in 2014, so not all was lost > Yakima CN96 (
May27 05:52 [0410] We have three here! One is a simulcast of 1390 KBBO and relays on an HD of KHHK-99.7 (it's on 104.5). 106.1 and 106.9 are also HD analog translators. Back in the good ole days, I used to hear KBKS/KZFN swapping on 106.1, and KMOK/KRWM swapping on 106.9. > yakima CN96 (
May27 04:56 in the 1970s one of the employees of N5TX's tower maintenance company got 1st-degree chest burns from a zipper while working on that while it was energized - de WA5IYX (

May27 04:45 they somehow had convinced the FCC that they (100.3 TL far out n.w.) were at a disadvantage with 101.9/102.7/104.5 TLs downtown - de WA5IYX (
May27 04:43 the first xltor in this town came on in Nov 1983 (95.3 downtown for 100.3) - the primary almost never announced that it even existed - de WA5IYX (
May27 04:40 considering that every FM HD station occupies 3 channels now they all ought to be required to offer at least 2 subs - de WA5IYX (
May27 04:27 [04:22] Bloomberg financial radio is on 960 AM here as well as a FM-HD2. I only listen until QRM eats it alive and have no interest in HD radio ... Mike (
May27 04:25 We have a 89.3 station on the coast here that IDs as "San Francisco's new 103.3" which is a translator. Thought that was illegal!? ... Mike (
May27 04:25 93.3 is now carrying another c&w station, forcing 104.5 rock fans to get HD or go w/o - de WA5IYX (
May27 04:24 104.5 here dropped rock format for rap, put rock on HD sub AND 93.3 xltor - de WA5IYX (
May27 04:22 it sort of proves that HD signal coverage or public adoption of it is lacking - de WA5IYX (
May27 04:10 Yeah, I saw those analog repeaters of HD signals. Fortunately that hasn't caught on here--Yet. Shouldn't be allowed. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (
May27 03:31 Today's Es (non) event... 2 positive IDs better than none - K4NBF EM66 (
May27 03:23 Sure was exciting watch skip march westward until it went off a cliff ... Mike (
May27 03:21 Here in St. Cloud we only have 88.1, 88.9, 90.1 (currently off but for how long???), and 105.5 - En25 (
May27 03:19 Yeah, a significant number of the xlators in the TWC are HD-2,3's. Iheart is bad about that. - En25 (
May27 03:19 Thanks, Justin. Almost as bad as it is here, plus translators. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (

May27 02:34 [00:21] There's a DXer and radio veteran in Evanston named Michael Richard who is active on the ABDX listserver. He's going through a very tough time right now, as his wife died just a few days ago -- Rick in South Omaha EN21af (
May27 02:20 Here's something you could try... - de JimT/MO EM37 (
May27 02:16 Justin, I don't think a UHF antenna in any fashion will help with Es. Not sure if it will hurt it. Two equal length dipoles (1/4 or 1/2 wave) facing opposite direction could help. One N-S and one E-W (or similar) - de JimT/MO EM37 (
May27 02:13 Glad I could help Randy EN70gf - de JimT/MO EM37 (
May27 02:01 Would three antennas combined into one have any effect on Es reception? Two dipoles and the UHF on the roof - En25 (
May27 01:47 JimT - thanks for the help. That was the Spanish-speaking signal I heard on 98.5. Randy EN70gf (
May27 01:20 My VCR stopped at "01:00" after six hours of recording; I hope I bagged something on ch 2./cdEL96 (

May26 23:58 Worse than here. En25 (
May26 23:58 Minneapolis is an RF hell hole. At least on the north half of town. All stations of significant power have HD (
May26 23:57 Make sure all your wires are good- I missed out on a tropo opening a year or so back because if one of my coax cables aren't bent right, the entire amplifier setup doesn't work. I just make sure to listen to a distant station and jiggle the cable to make sure it's properly working. -- Dan EM73QX (
May26 23:54 Es some surges to 92.7 now. Still bm NW - K4NBF EM66 (
May26 23:51 Justin, have you taken a good radio into Minneapolis? Is there hope for Es reception there? I've looked at the WTFDA database, but it may look more positive than reality does. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (
May26 23:51 You're not missing anything Justin - K4NBF (
May26 23:49 I have been checking the car radio here in Sauk Rapids, Mn for the past two hrs. Not a hint of Es. En25 (
May26 23:48 KDDS applied for a bunch of boosters in Seattle. In Bothell, 104.9 (I believe) has been approved for an LPFM on the UW Bothell campus. Also many more LPFM CPs on 95.3, 100.3, 105.7, etc. > Yakima CN96 (
May26 23:47 Yak, even those will be going. 99.3 has applied for city-grade Seattle. If they get it, (and I'm sure that'll be rubber-stamped, others will follow. - rick N6KCR Seattle (
May26 23:46 In looking for my "Air1", it lists a local 106.3... guessing they'll be gracing the airwaves with another translator, <20 miles from their 250 watt mega translator on 92.5 - K4NBF EM66 (

May26 23:44 Sorry to hear that Rick. Open channels are slowly but surely fading away in Seattle. LPFMs firing up everywhere. You're better off DXing through semi-locals now. > Yakima CN96 (
May26 23:42 Looks like I've lost 101.9 to an LPFM with Asian music. So far haven't been able to null it. Another LPFM on 102.1 is defeatable. I heard open carrier on 101.9 Sunday and feared the worst, and now it's up and running. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (
