Mar28 01:17 Carleton's about halfway from Southfield and Oregon OH -- where the majority of txs are for DET and TOL. So, about thirty miles in either direction from here. Yet, I still get FL often on Es. de Eric B, Carleton, MI (
Mar28 01:14 That is, I have IBOC from both DET and TOL. And I'm not going to bring up the open channels wiped out by Windsor turning on all those FMs in the past decade! de Eric B, Carleton, MI (
Mar28 01:12 Yakima, remember that CRL is between DET-TOL, so I get double-whammied by IBOC; yet, I do decently. If you can aim away from the sticks, you should be able to DX decently. de Eric B, Carleton, MI (
Mar28 01:05 Minnesota sometimes gets great trops to WI IL IA MO > Yakima CN96 (
Mar28 01:05 I don't know about Twin Cities core. LOTS of IBOC. You are better off living 30-40 miles from MSP, where IBOC is weaker, and tropo is more common. > Yakima CN96 (

Mar27 22:37 I've logged a few from MN (RST, AUM, and SBU) on tropo, so it IS doable from there. 73 de Eric B, Carleton, MI (
Mar27 22:33 Should be decent there; TX and the Gulf Coast seem quite common from MN on Es. You'll also have a shot at the Great Lakes from MSP! de Eric B, Carleton, MI (

Feb11 14:30 Our 93.7 so-called "Translator" for KDYK 1020 (Regional Mexican) in Yakima still sounds absolutely horrendous.

Audio was great when it relayed KLKY, but with a local classic rock now on 105.7, there's no use for that translator.
