Dec16 01:12 Thanks, Chime, and, I think Lee (VA). I'm now thinking it sounds like "brought to you by hot friends". If they stream, plenty of time for process of elimination. Maybe should look more closely at Canada. - Rick N6KCR SE WA (

Dec15 20:36 Need help with this audio from 88.3. Could be Ms or something more local. Can't make out the word after "brought to you by", but may be familiar to someone or you just might hear something I don't. - Rick N6KCR SE WA (

Dec14 17:28 Picking up 25 MHz WWV here in MO; EM29 (
Dec14 16:37 I did have some 106.5 bursts, but then the electric co. caused buzz on FM/TV. Still recording though; I am away./cdel96 (
Dec14 16:16 Went through last night's overnight recordings on 94.7. One ping, loud but only long enough for a single note. Much better luck with "minor" showers. Still recording, but so far it's a washout. Now going through yesterday's daytime recordings, just in case. Geminids holding true with underwhelming results. - Rick N6KCR SE WA (
Dec14 15:49 [Dec10 23:49] I am still around Mike-La. Tropo has been in dead with all this rain we have been having. - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (

Dec14 13:10 [05:03] Update - Looks like I was wrong about W250AZ. The web page was actually referring to a Hot 97.1. The mystery continues.- Jim-F SATX EL09qn (
Dec14 13:02 [05:03] 97.9 WLUP became web-only earlier this year. The actual 97.9 FM is now WCKL (K-LOVE). You might’ve heard W250AZ (WAUG translator), Hot 97.9, an urban station in Raleigh, NC. I found a page mentioning the station and the “97 minutes...” tag. - Jim-F SATX EL09qn (
Dec14 06:37 hmm....that is prior to a Bears game. Googles show 2014, by they might still be doing the "commercial free tailgate."/cdel96 (
Dec14 06:35 [05:03] Looks like WLUP Chicago promises 97 minutes (

Dec14 03:29 SDR got Ms catch of PI code 2170 which is KGPS. There are no KGPS's on 95.1 - En35ID (
Dec14 03:22 [03:19] For some irony, the last ID'd Ms catch last year was WVTF 89.1 VA, a.k.a. Radio IQ!/cdel96 (
Dec14 03:19 i should be doing I/Q recordings but they consume gobs of space. Eric CM96 (
Dec14 03:16 Oops. Sorry about green - En35ID (
Dec14 03:16 Ms rates so far pretty good but they're short. A lot of stuff in the middle of songs :( - EN35ID (
Dec14 03:14 I think i might be seeing some MS here. Just saw a strong burst on 94.3 - Eric CM96 (
Dec14 02:04 Any idea which way I should point my antenna for the Geminids? - En35ID (
Dec14 01:13 Los Angeles is also in Phase 2. Final date is April 12----so you'll be getting RF's 4 and 5 by then. Could well be sooner./cdel96 (

Dec14 00:01 WOHL-CD is now on Channel 35 as a sister station of WLIO! WILO Back in 2009 changed totally to channel 8. Jerry Peterson> Macomb, Ill (
Dec13 23:45 [20:38] WLIO is actual and virtual 8 (not virtual 35 as one would expect), there are a few others adopting their actual channels as virtual. N8NU MI (

Dec13 21:57 Since 18 UTC southeast Finland is racking up west-central EU countries on FM vis Ms. Azimuth south to south-west. Ranges between 529 to 1172 miles - KA3JAW FN20jq (
Dec13 21:13 Thank you CDEL for a valuable site. By chance when is an LA date? Now I understand why our Rel 12's went away as KDOC will replace it. But an LD8 also left, now scanning at 166channels. Thanks in advance from Chime in Sherman Oaks (
Dec13 20:38 Thanks...why does KWET-8 in Oklahoma show up as virtual 8 on the list? Should be virtual 12?? (Seen during a quick look)--Frank M. (
Dec13 20:18 Any TV station there listed in white background, is staying put./cdel96 (

Dec13 05:00 I do have an mp3 recorder, and it can record many hours; however, I need to transfer much currently on it to cassette, to free up hours./cdel96 (
Dec13 03:40 That being said, patience isn't endless. I'm in a new area with more available frequencies, so worth trying for now. - Rick N6KCR SE WA (
Dec13 03:38 I'd never do Ms live unless I just happen to monitor. But recording on an SD card and going through it later takes less time, and could yield positive results. I certainly agree that doing Ms completely live would be too frustrating. - Rick N6KCR SE WA (
Dec13 03:15 Until I get a new PC and download Total Recorder again, I have to listen for Ms LIVE. Exercise in futility./cdel96 (
Dec13 02:11 I don't do Ms actively at all. The "bang for the buck" (number of new stations logged, per hour of effort) is terrible--frankfrank (
Dec13 02:10 [21:27] Greenville?!!? I have a good friend there--Frank M/frankfrank, EN40 (
Dec13 01:19 Don't know if I'll have a lot of time to check for Ms bursts. Logged zero during the Perseids this year, just unids with music and national ads, nothing local or ID-wise. > Yakima CN96 (

Dec12 20:03 My latitude just won't bring the Ms as much as up north; and of course, never Au here./cdel96 (
Dec12 18:40 Thanks, KA3JAW. I'm more used to the Perseids, where I've had better Ms reception starting several days before the peak. - Rick N6KCR SE WA (
Dec12 18:31 The upswing will be noticed 24 housr prior to the peak - KA3JAW FN20jq (
Dec12 17:15 Been recording a lot since December 4, and if anything, activity has decreased to almost nothing. One more recording to check, but in-person monitoring doesn't offer much hope. - Rick N6KCR SE WA (

Dec08 17:42 I again encourage those with an iPhone (and maybe other devices) to use Shazam to identify songs. You can say to Siri, "Shazam this" and play a dsample of the song into your device, and 99 times out of 100, an answer will come. It's usually right. Other apps do similar things. - Rick N6KCR SE WA (
Dec08 16:55 ...Chime..correct...both have same song titles, but very different songs. Gary.... Boise DN13 (

Dec08 16:21 [15:50] Yes Rick, keep getting pings from KJWL...Being familiar with 80's music makes it easy to ID...just gotta another ping with Tears for Fears "Head over Heels" Gary.... Boise DN13 (
Dec08 15:50 [14:12] Impressive, Gary. 105.5 here is a semilocal. Since I can't do RDS, Pi codes and the like, Ms is just something to try when there's no skip. - Rick N6KCR SE WA (

Dec08 09:34 Ellensburg is just as decent for FM DX as Yakima is. And with only one AM in town (1240 KXLE), I'll likely lose just one new channel up there. Feel sorry for those in suburban neighborhoods where Tr and even Es is next-to-impossible, thank you FCC. > Yakima CN9 (
Dec08 09:31 Gary, the Boise area is getting full of translators nowadays. At least Yakima is still rather open on a couple dozen frequencies (Warning: Don't tell the AM stations!) > Yakima CN96 (
Dec08 05:05 [02:48] When the FCC is through, we'll need FM revitalization. - Rick N6KCR SE WA (

Dec07 21:46 I believe the 550 is the only portable with RDS *AND* "EXT ANT" terminal---very important./cdel96 (
Dec07 21:45 Some Cuba RDS on a trip of mine last year via the Éton 550/cdel96--> (
Dec07 21:37 it is not a killer DX radio, but it IS selective, and RDS shows more info than the Sony (4 pages)./cdel96 (
Dec07 21:36 Kegan, check YouTube for Eton 550 review. I will say----/cdel96 (
Dec07 21:33 Unknown mode/station, presumed Ms but uncertain. Dec. 6 1534 PST. 91.5 playing "Footsteps" by Pop Evil. Can't log it but curious. Does this fit any station you know of? KSJD in CO seemed like a candidate but doesn't have playlist for that hour. Most nearby stations are NPR/Classical. - Rick N6KCR SE WA (
Dec07 21:25 I'm considering the Eton 550, among other radios, to decode RDS. - Kegan EM26te (

Oct11 18:49 unfortunately the ability to have 'guests' or 'unregistered' users is a giant spam AND security hole JJ in EN82 (

Oct11 16:35 One last comment and I'll shut up (for now.) If we go to numerous separate sites, people won't find each other and we may not get the info we need when we need it. - Rick SE WA (
Oct11 16:31 Better to use a client like Mozilla's Instantbird and connect directly via IRC than to use a web portal. - Rick SE WA (
Oct11 16:28 By the way, many, not all, web-based IRC portals are pretty icky and not all that trustworthy. I don't include this one in my assessment because I'm not familiar with it. - Rick SE WA (
Oct11 16:24 Thing is, we need a central place, and that potential central place already exists. Rick, I do appreciate your efforts, though.

Sep17 10:09 [09:56] "not with I was gone..." (
Sep17 10:06 Also, the winter openings, which (yes) were rare but DID happen maybe once in most years, have entirely dried up in recent years... (
Sep17 10:05 In 56 years of DX, I think that's the only May tropo I've ever had that even "RESEMBLED" a long-haul opening?? May is NOT a Tropo time around here. (
Sep17 10:04 Just as interesting, in recent years I've had the best tropo at uncharacteristic times of the year, like some great openings in July and a few years ago Monterrey on MAY 26--Frank M. (
Sep17 10:02 But truly...until recent years, there was **ALWAYS** a huge tropo opening between 8/16 and 9/8, or so-it-seemed.--Frank M (

Sep17 09:58 Also in the 1995 opening Bill Eckberg in Dixon IL had the 40 in Wray CO; that's at least 70 miles farther than us--Frank M. EN40 (
Sep17 09:57 In the earlier opening I think Idalia and Stratton and maybe Burlington were his loggings, but the 1995 opening was much more extensive (
Sep17 09:56 ...and that pattern was dependable until 5 or 6 years ago. There's been no memorable Tr since around July 11 or 12, apparently not when IU was gone either. (
Sep17 09:55 [20:13] Not the first time, he had an opening 1988 or 1989 I think late August/Labor Day (when there's ALWAYS supposed to be an opening)... (
Sep16 21:33 actually was already KRQE then, but that doesn't change anything... (
Sep16 21:32 DUH...I mean picking up KETA instead of their nominal KGGM (
Sep16 21:32 (picking up Albuquerque instead of KETA) (
Sep16 20:13 Jeff had a 69 carrying OK Public near the end of the opening, that was never identified...we both think it MAY have been a translator of Albuquerque 13--Frank M. (
Sep16 20:12 ...culminating on August 2, the only "10" of hyper-busy in my lifetime, all comparisons are made against that--Frank M. (
Sep16 20:11 I may or may not have reported the 1995 opening. I was wickedly busy (so busy that the timing of that Tr put me in physical danger)...--Frank M. (
Sep16 18:52 If not for the Rockies in the way, you could have eked out western CO! > Yakima CN96 (
Sep16 18:51 That 1995 tropo opening brought eastern Colorado translators to Jeff Kadet's television, probably one of the only times ever. TX panhandle translators too. And of course, KTVD/KDVR/other UHFs in Denver. > Yakima CN96 (
Sep16 07:51 One opening on I think 7/29/1995 got me my only one each FM tropo from Colorado (93.3 Lamar) and New Mexico (99.1), TV to Denver--Frank M. (
Sep16 07:49 Been considerably luckier with similarly-west tropo from especially Nebraska and NW Kansas, but of course it's also closer--Frank M. (
Sep16 07:48 Anything west of the Missouri River up there, is virtually impossible even from HERE, via 300-mile closer Tropo. Only such Tropo was KPSD-97.1 Faith SD--Frank M. (
Sep16 07:46 [11:50] Yeah, if it was in 1995 or 1996, that was skip. ESPECIALLY if you had Rapid City, Minot, etc. Dial too cluttered by then for casual Tropo that far--Frank M. EN40 (frankfrank) (
Sep16 01:17 [11:50] Sounds like Es distance. October is not noted for frequent Es, but there have been a few spectacular openings. I missed out on the "World Opening" in 1971. N8NU MI (
