Aug17 04:10 [03:47] Same state, but southeast Washington near the Idaho border. Only one HD there when I visited last March; 66 or 67 potential skip frequencies. 42 completely open if my count is accurate.

Aug17 02:09 Here, as I've said, it was a one-day Es season with a few nibbles otherwise. Since I wasn't available during those precious 90 minutes on June 22, I really had no season. 90 minutes on that one day, and maybe ten minutes scattered over the remainder of the season. Pathetic with a capital P. June 22nd was a shame to miss. Pre-recorded, I had Laramie, Amarillo and probably Albuquerque on 91.9 at the same time. Denver in later. Maybe 5 minutes in July. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (

Aug01 21:25 Waiting, sitting on 91.3 and hope I notice if they go off entirely! Still need (what was it? LaSalle?) there which I may need to go to the car to hear, Vertical only--Frank M. (
Aug01 21:24 THe repack I discussed yesterday may not be coordinated: Channel 21 may have 2 channels KGCW and WMEC> This may occur after 6PM every night. Till PBS WMEC Changes channel. Also some PSIP'S could track to the right channel leaving u with two channel 21's. (

Aug01 18:58 [11:30] Yeah I know I saw KWQC SOMEWHERE on a QC station, but I couldn't remember which--Frank M. (
Aug01 18:56 Are repack moves REALLY going to be coordinated that well, or will some stations 40 miles apart stomp on each other for a while?--Frank M. (
Aug01 18:55 [11:00, etc.] KGCW still off but, eek, what a mess. Probably KWQC needs to move first, so WMEC can move to 36, so KGCW can move to 21?--Frank M. Macomb (
Aug01 18:52 BTW I do not care for FT8, but it is the wave this year. de dwi/7 I have made over 200 FT8 QSO's on 6 and 10 M. One Portugal, Canary Is and Hawaii... I guess I shouldn't complain :) de dwi/7 (

Aug01 16:02 This is why I don't find FT8 useful for predicting FM Es at all.....unless there are a large number of FT8 QSOs on 144 MHz de AC7XP (
Aug01 16:00 Weak signal digital modes are often very narrow in bandwidth and can be significantly below the noise floor...voice needs more bandwidth and has to be above the noise floor de AC7XP (
Aug01 15:58 The greater the bandwidth of the signal and the need for the signal to be above the noise requires much stronger propagation de AC7XP (
Aug01 15:52 It is a very poor predictor of voice modes because the signal-to-noise requirements to support propagation are on opposite ends of the scale de AC7XP (
Aug01 15:50 FT8 is a weak signal mode, so it should work for any propagation type that will support the AC7XP (
Aug01 15:47 Makes sense Steve...I'm getting Several FT8 from OK and TX...maybe a good sign Dennis FM18 (

Aug01 15:08 AND, even though it shows the band is "open" I assume it really isn't a certain predictor of Es, only that the MUF may be rising. Am I correct, at least in part??? Dennis (
Aug01 15:06 Question for anyone: We mention when 6m FT8 is active but does digital communication such as FT8 depend on ES or is it direct line of sight? Dennis (
