Feb17 10:08 I have had the new AirSpy HF+ for about two months now and there is no decent Tropo to test it out on to see if it is the real deal or not for FM DX. - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (
Feb17 10:06 Tropo forecast this weekend was a dud. The stalled out front near my area to the north should have kicked good Tropo up. - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (

Feb16 06:24 If you all want to send ideas, I'm at kg6vsw -at- Gmail - Bryce (
Feb16 06:23 Right now it only flags recent reports, but I could add a lookback page. It does indeed scrape the "Log Reports" page - K4NBF (
Feb16 00:34 [00:08] Yeah JJ, it would be good to have the Hepburn Tropo map as an archive to see what the forcast was around the time of the DXers loggings that day - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (
Feb16 00:08 would be interesting to be able to overlay the aprs map as well as that data... JJ in EN82 (
Feb15 22:35 does that scrape info from this site? (
Feb15 20:35 [20:27] maybe a snapshot of the map with all or each DXer's logs. - EM40 (
Feb15 20:27 Bryce K4NBF, Is there any way to save the dx from each day that is logged on the auto-mapper? - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (

Feb13 13:27 Raymie, I have yet to catch Cancún via tropo, even from the Keys (strange as it may seem), but 101.9 is a good freq. away from the xltr in Miami---so, thanks./cdEL96 (
Feb13 06:13 XHCBJ moved to its new frequency last Monday, February 5. -Raymie (
Feb13 06:13 If you want to try for Cancún this year on FM, do not skip 101.9, the new home of XHCBJ-FM. They're operating at higher power, maybe not 50 kW though...turns out the temporary site arrangement and lower-than-advertised ERP were a consequence of Hurricane Wilma blowing down the stick in 2005 - Raymie (
Feb13 05:15 Yeah...106.5, 91.7 possibly, and maybe 88.7 & 89.5 but not sure on last two. Last AM pirate here was about 6 years ago with Sinatra mx!/cdEL96 (

Feb12 16:48 Seen this on QRZ swap list if anyone is interested...KD4ESV (
Feb10 23:15 At my spot in Key Largo: Cuba too faint on FM. Nassau better, but not much worth recording; Hot 91.7 being the best, with brief RDS./cdKeys (
Feb10 23:15 It sounds like the KUAF signal has returned - at 5:14pm - dead air for a few seconds - back with programming - Kegan EM26 (
Feb10 23:12 Tr on 91.3 FM here - with Sports a few minutes ago - KRSC, Claremore, OK - Local NPR station KUAF, Fayetteville, AR is off the air at this time. Rotor antenna - Aimed West - Kegan EM26 (
Feb09 22:12 I have used cat5 for a lot of little homebrew projects, the stuff is great LOL JJ in EN82 / Pontiac (
Feb09 21:55 I used Cat5E as the control wire, just doubled up conductors. Using about 75' of cable it seems to work fine. No sparks or melting! JJ in EN82 (
Feb09 21:54 I've been using a cheaper channel master unit for years, does the job OK. no feedback, but have a camera pointed at it. it's probably 10-12 years old. JJ in EN82 (
Feb09 16:30 It looks like Walmart also sells the Channel Master Bob-Nj Fn20 (

Feb08 16:57 GW 107.9 W300** //1170 WAVS FL has signed on. Now translators in Davie AND Miami + 100kW WEAT West Palm./cdEL96 (
Feb08 16:51 Cable sold separately 😐. En35 (
Feb08 16:05 Especially with the band getting more crowded a rotator is a must. I would never hear any DX here in NJ without it. Bob-Nj Fn20 (
Feb08 15:41 That's the one I have. Only time I have problems with it is when the temp is below -0, motor doesn't want to turn. Its an older unit - JimT/MO EM37 (
Feb08 15:39 En35, you can get a Channel Master antenna rotator at Lowes, $109 plus tax (
Feb07 22:01 [16:07] that was 106.5 of course./cd (
Feb07 21:27 [16:08] that's WUBB. I thought they were 50k---R-L sez 100!/cdEL96 (
Feb07 21:18 If this is FM (94.5), imagine the AM's 1200/1210....cdEL96:-> (
Feb07 21:16 .....causing it to sound awful. Worse, the AM seems to be received at some location not in the major lobe, plenty of CCI at night. It sounds much better on an AM radio up in Temperance MI. N8NU (
Feb07 21:13 [17:13] Even worse is WPAY 1520 and W221BG Toledo. I believe their input is through a *communications receiver*.... (
Feb07 21:13 I use the tried and true Armstrong rotor./cdEL96 (
Feb07 21:00 Channel master has better reviews. I'd be willing to pay more for something that lasts longer - En35 (
Feb07 20:57 That RCA doesn't have the best reviews. - En35 (
Feb07 19:41 RCA programmable antenna rotator with remote - VH126R : KA3JAW FN20jq (
Feb07 19:33 Youcan figure an average price of $100 for a light-duty rotator - KA3JAW FN20jq (
Feb07 18:28 Man I wish I had a rotor like you guys. How much do those run normally? - En35 (
Feb07 17:13 for 13w though, it did pretty good fighting with WIIL until just inside the michigan line JJ in EN82 / Pontiac, MI (
Feb07 17:13 W236BD sounds like complete garbage BTW, WIMS AM 1420 is being fed into the TX directly by none other AM radio tuned to 1420AM. JJ in EN82 / Pontiac (
Feb07 17:11 haven't had time to spin my antenna around in at least a couple months. it's probably frozen solid at the moment. JJ in EN82 / Pontiac, MI (
Feb07 17:00 both stations do very well, WKQX because it's up so high JJ in EN82 (
Feb07 17:00 Listened to WIIL and WKQX to about MM 60 on I94 last night headed home from Chicago, not sure if that counts for DX :-P Finally lost both just west of K-Zoo JJ in EN82 / Pontiac, MI (

Feb05 13:48 BTW one guilty pleasure of mine is to listen to sports-talk in the losing city. WBZ-FM 98.5 live stream, here I come./cd (
Feb05 13:47 I read on that 3.0 site, that if a station transitions to 3.0, they must have their "1.0" station still on for 5 years. Works for me./cdEL96 (
Feb05 13:28 [00:21] The cost of internet only service, which in most cases is supplied by cable companies, would go up in price. They should have done this 10-15 years ago, I don't see these changes happening at this point in time! Bob-Nj Fn20 (
Feb05 08:35 Yes great Super Bowl game Congrats to the Eagles on their first ever Super Bowl win - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (

Feb04 09:21 Oddly enough, no apps for KUTI (don't tell 'em) or KXLE/1240 (ditto). Maybe in a few years I'll move up to the Kittitas Valley - some Yakima sticks are nullable up there with Manastash blocking the LOS, and that's good for Es. > Yakima CN96 (
Feb04 09:13 That 101.3 would transmit KIT-1280. This 102.5 would relay KTCR-980. > Yakima CN96 (

Feb04 01:30 Definitely exceptions to my rule----(re Feb Es)----especially in the S Hemisphere!/cdEL96 (
Feb04 00:43 Incidentally, in general, L.A. and Phoenix didn't open at the same time, but that night they did! - Rick N6KCR Seattle (
Feb04 00:41 The only station I know I had on that Feb. Sunday night (referred to below) was the 96.5? in Lewiston, ID, but Es was blazing hot. Looked like I had Seattle, Spokane, and many other places up to 108. So hard to resist. As it turned out, no assignments from the office, so I could have DXed, but didn't know it. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (
Feb04 00:37 [16:48] When in Phoenix (Feb. '94-06), I almost always had TV Es somewhere from the 3rd to the 15th. Didn't reach FM. One Sunday night in late Feb. or early March of 2000 or 2001, the L.A./Seattle path reached 144 mHz. Don't remember date. Working from home, dial was full, but had to turn it off and resist temptation. Guess would be Feb. 2000. - rick N6KCR Seattle (

Feb03 21:23 [16:49] did you receive XEDA's RDS call & information scroll text? - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (
Feb03 17:05 ....I don't think that I had XEDA audio---just the RDS & HD flash./cd (
Feb03 16:49 ....Had my first Mexican with HD flash (90.5 XEDA, which at the time was Mexico's ONLY HD station)./cdEL96 (

Dec29 02:39 I'm thinking I'll pick one up in the spring - sounds like a good way to tune around, focusing on a few frequencies, while a more broadband SDR like Elad or standard Airspy gathers IQ recordings - K4NBF (

Dec28 23:15 [23:11] If you change the WFM bandwith filters from 768 kHz to 192 or 96 kHz you can make the signal stronger & louder & at 96 kHz you can bring a super weak signal out of the noise floor to hear it for possible ID - AMFMTVDTVBRLA em40 (

Nov03 01:37 [01:31] This is the future of Dxing folks. Soon it will be possible to DX like this on when ATSC 3.0 rolls out - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (
Nov03 00:07 [23:53] what this means is every DXer along the Texas Mexico & along the Florida Panhandle needs to check for Tropo now. amfmtvdtvbrla. EM40 (
Nov02 23:53 [23:40] I don't get 107.5 FM from Lake Jackson TX here to often because their signal transmits in the south and southeast direction. When I do receive them there is good strong Tropo building in the lower Texas coast & Mexico's border into the Gulf - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (
Nov02 23:40 Lost Houston's The Eagle 106.9 FM to a new station in white Castle LA. But I am hearing their repeter station to the southeast on 107.5 FM.right now. - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (

Nov02 14:15 Nice catch, Jack. I'm getting some DFW stations intermittently here, too. 107.9 KDXX in Lewisville is occasionally strong enough for RDS and HD. - Jim-F SATX EL09qn (

Oct31 08:56 Cool front will stall around the Shreveport Alexandria LA area Wednesday. Then the front will move back to the north as a warm front and then High Pressure will build in and cause this Tropo event coming Thursday thru the weekend - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (

Oct28 16:39 @Eric B: take it you're an avation buff. N8NU (10km at 070 from DUH) (
Oct28 16:31 ... maritime tropo is often during the day in the spring, continental more often overnights and early morning in late summer. N8NU. (
Oct28 16:29 .....different conditions cause "maritime tropo" and continental tropo" they "prefer" different seasons and times of day..... (
Oct28 16:27 [2039] Carleton MI to Buffalo is mostly over Lake Erie, while Carleton to Toronto is mostly over flat land...... (

Oct27 01:53 Skip opening into FM was brief - other stations heard were KPAC-99.3 KRTU-91.7 KETX-92.3 & UNID SS-likely KRUM-92.9 de fred SC FM03af (
Oct27 00:01 Well, I moved to a small village called Westport, Ontario which is located about an hour north of Kingston, ON from Sudbury, ON in late 2015 and so far, I had no tropo openings west of Kitchener, ON nothing east of Montreal, QC/Burlington, Vermont, nothing north of Huntsville, ON/Parry Sound, ON/Pembroke, ON/Ottawa-Gatineau, and nothing south of Syracuse, NY or east of Albany, NY. If there were ever a strong tropo opening(s) FROM eastern Ontario TO the Canadian Maritime Provinces, including the state of Maine it would be very interesting and most likely rare! (

Oct26 19:35 [13:23] Yes, but entirely different tropo conditions. Another oddity is that from Toledo, I almost never had simultaneous Tr from north (Canada) and south (Erie, Buffalo) sides of Lake Erie--Frank M. (
