Aug13 18:23 [17:30] Lots of negative parts here. A valley that seems to inhibit signals. Not a sophisticated setup. Still, I try. Got stronger stuff in Seattle but few freqs. Here more freqs, less DX. - Rick SE WA (24.116.127.123)

Aug13 17:43 Doesn't make sense how Idaho gets 100 bursts an hour and I get 1-2. But at least one was a new log. In 2015's Perseids I had a 90-second train that brought 100.3/101.5 SLC, three new ones on 95.5 (and 100+ bursts that night), along with Forsyth MT 101.3 and Bozeman 95.1... > Yakima CN96 (97.90.95.142)
Aug13 17:30 ...1707...Rick, I average about 100 Pings per hour, 20 strong useable and 5 extremely strong/ long burns per hour last 24 hours...it maybe a receive sensitivity issue Gary...DN13..Boise (107.77.245.2)
Aug13 17:26 I had hundreds of pings on 95.5, a few on 91.9 and nothing anywhere else. The only ones long enough to do anything with were denied by the content at the time. Still no Ms DX since 2012 ... Mike (73.252.142.49)

Aug13 08:08 Decided on 101.1 for overnight recording, tuned to 101.12 to avoid KARY splatter. Needed here overall in Ms range: KDDX-SD, KDSR-ND, KHYL-CA, KZMT-MT, couple others. > Yakima CN96 (97.90.95.142)
Aug13 08:06 Regarding my 0802 report, I caught this one on my SPARC outdoors. I was actively tuning through a few of the notorious blank frequencies around here (95.1, 95.5, 105.1, and 105.9 primarily). Should also note I heard Spanish on 106.3, I'm suspecting KDBI-FM. CascadiaDXer, DN07 (136.143.144.181)
Aug13 08:02 Ms @ 00:30 PT -> 95.1 KHOP Oakdale, CA; new log. Heard 'Closer' by The Chainsmokers, and it matched with the playlist on the KHOP website. Also getting stronger than usual signals from KRSK and KFBW Portland. CascadiaDXer, DN07 (136.143.144.181)
Aug13 08:02 95.1 will have to wait until I run errands tomorrow. Too much bleedover from 94.5. Not an issue in the Elantra and I sure as hel-l am NOT going to drive around at 1:00 in the morning trying to get one ID. Deciding between 98.1, 101.1 and 101.3 tonight. > Yakima CN96 (97.90.95.142)

Aug13 04:56 The 101.9 came out of thin air...came out of grocery store, put the ignition in, and all of a sudden boom! Ms hit over KZIU. Perfect timing. If it would have been much longer I would have flipped around other channels. It was 2015 where I had a 90 second Ms train that delivered 100.3 SLC, think I also had 101.5 KEGA. > Yakima CN96 (97.90.95.142)

Aug13 04:47 The fact that I need five alone in Ms range on 95.1, three of those at 100KW, one at 98kw and one at 11.5kw, makes it obvious to try that frequency. However I don't think I will go out to my Hyundai and take a late night check tonight either... > Yakima CN96 (97.90.95.142)

Aug13 03:39 I don't quite have a solid plan for what frequencies to monitor tonight. RTL-SDR will definitely be on 95.1. The other two will probably be 105.5 and 107.1. Perhaps one on 89.3. (136.143.144.181)
Aug13 03:36 [02:38] I've had Ms as close as 210 miles. Back in the 1960s it was at least twice that I'd have the test pattern for WBBM-2, and it became "much stronger" for half a second or so (210 miles from SE Mich.) frankfrank (184.171.226.155)

Aug10 09:49 CKCK: Exactly, that's why they were "common" - that test pattern stuck out like a sore thumb, as the saying goes. frankfrank (184.171.226.155)
Aug10 09:10 I remember a friend telling me that prior to KIMA 29 signing on the air in the early '90s they would show an old RETMA TP and tone c. 1950s-60s? I've never seen it for myself on the hundreds of tapes. > Yakima CN96 (97.90.95.142)
Aug10 09:09 There's a KELO-TV sign off on YouTube from 1993 with a RETMA TP after the sign-off. Pretty cool to see that, very late for that type of test pattern to hang around. > Yakima CN96 (97.90.95.142)
Aug10 09:08 CKCK...you might remember when they were using an IHTP in off-air time (with the CTV logo over what should be the Indian) as late as this century! > Yakima CN96 (97.90.95.142)
Aug10 08:54 [04:23] Yup. Toowomba. Came in quite strong that day...logged on the basis of being on a UNIQUE frequency, far out of tolerance for the channel. frankfrank (184.171.226.155)
Aug10 08:48 Not so much with WPBT, because so often WESH would get in there with them...but they'd take turns being VERY watchable Frank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)
Aug10 08:47 CKCK, too...not at all rare for them to be there all by themselves, and oddly was reasonably common overnights once a year or so Frank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)
Aug10 08:44 [04:31] That was also true here. (KTVI and KGAN were zero-beat to each other, same offset.) Es video was about the only time Channel 2 video wasn't "crummy" (if there wasn't lots of swapping, XEPM was real good for this) Frank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)

Aug10 03:34 Actually having WTWO dominant on 2 was quite unusual from here; it was almost always KGAN and/or KTVI, most often both. frankfrank (184.171.226.155)
Aug10 03:33 [02:05] More fun, cool!! And that's pretty special, Curtis, WTWO was my dominant that day, too. Of course you're significantly closer to them. frankfrank (184.171.226.155)

Aug10 02:03 then lik, I meant. (50.103.118.124)
Aug10 02:02 The MUF on the 12/30 event was interesting. I lapsed from low indistinct audio from Terre Haute, to low audio from Trinidad, the like a switch had been thrown into loud audio from Venezuela. A Spanish dub of the 1995 file 'Caspar'. Venezuela was mentioned in a station break. Curtis (50.103.118.124)
Aug10 01:59 Got recordings from both days somewhere in my tapes. Curtis (50.103.118.124)
Aug10 01:57 The 2001 F2 event was before I joined the WTFDA, but I was in contact with Girard at the time. His livestream DX had the video of it going out live, and I e-mailed him. Curtis (50.103.118.124)
Aug10 01:56 I recall the second day they had it ID'ed as Trinidad. That reception was a lot weaker for me, no audio then. Curtis (50.103.118.124)
Aug10 01:56 BAD JOKE: If they had an Olympics bobsled team like the Jamaicans do, would it be Trinidad and Toboggan? Frank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)
Aug10 01:54 [01:48] I'm thinking they tend to steer clear of going beyond the normal range as well. Curtis (50.103.118.124)
Aug10 01:53 [01:30] I didn't have audio. I don't think K1MOD had audio, either. F2 MUF has *extremely* sharp (and not "up-and-down-type" variable) cutoff. frankfrank (184.171.226.155)
Aug10 01:51 [00:15] Ahhh...I was TRYING to remember which New Years Eve that was. K1MOD somehow ID'ed the Channel 2 as Trinidad and Tobago. I count it, I had it strong...ALSO had F2 in 1990 (?) with the Queensland station that was on AU Channel 0 (!) Frank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)
Aug10 01:48 [19:11] DTV signals are "smart" signals, so if you take up TV Dx they'll steer clear of the mountains and they won't get in your way Frank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)
Aug10 01:46 [13:02] Well, just move 'em out of the way, man. You can do it. (184.171.226.155)
Aug10 01:39 Or was it 300 KW? Don't quite recall at the moment. In any case, a lot more power than anything else I ever heard of on 2. Curtis (50.103.118.124)
Aug10 01:39 Very eventful opening for sure that day. I kind of figured it might have been coming from South America but without a clear enough signal and distorted audio, it was next to impossible to figure out where it was coming from that day. -Aaron IN (3.209.110.108)
Aug10 01:34 The 12/30 event was just plain weird, signal levels were HUGE, the set I was using was about to overload from the signal. Venezuela was running 600 KW on 2 at the time. Curtis (50.103.118.124)
Aug10 01:31 sp Initially (50.103.118.124)
Aug10 01:30 [00:18] I had audio on the 12/30 event. Initiailly Trinidad, then it was overpowered by Venezuela. I understand a DX'er in Toronto also got audio. Curtis Loda, Illinois (DX reception was at Rantoul, Illinois) (50.103.118.124)
Aug10 01:07 I hope its a good sign, as some of us here in the West are `still waiting. Chime in Sherman Oaks (104.172.0.143)
Aug10 00:59 No audio except static....I could visibly see movement and outlines of people in the picture but that was it. That was back when I was using the RadioShack VU-190XR up on the roof. -Aaron IN (3.209.110.108)

Aug08 00:51 I'd love to hear something from El Paso. At 870 miles, it would beat my current long haul tropo record. As for the guy hearing El Paso in the 90's, I heard that as well, but I don't remember where. - Josh EM36ui (173.202.97.203)
Aug08 00:48 [00:39] Yep, I had 102.1 KFZX at 671 miles and 92.3 KNFM at 642 miles. - Josh EM36ui (173.202.97.203)

Aug08 00:36 [00:17] It helped a lot that the Metroplex (Cedar Hill antenna farm) slips in at 644 miles, and I pretty much cleaned it out by the early 1990s; some changes since then I need frankfrank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)
Aug08 00:25 Tr 162.55 KIH52 - Oxford, MS (160 mi) with their station ID. I'm still not sure why NWR stations play their IDs so late, but whatever - Ethan EM34 (174.53.49.186)
Aug08 00:23 Tr 92.9 WMFS - Memphis, TN (133 mi) 6 kW, quite a rare station to catch here. Had to battle it out with KVRE Hot Springs Village - Ethan EM34 (174.53.49.186)
Aug08 00:19 Also, Happy Birthday, Frank! - Josh EM36ui (173.202.97.203)
Aug08 00:17 600+ tropo to Texas is a bit of a challenge from here. many of the big metros (DFW, Houston, Austin, Etc) are less than that. Even most of the San Antonio stations are just under 600. I do get tropo to the Rio Grande Valley once or twice a year though, which is around 780. I also received a couple stations from Midland-Odessa last year. - Josh EM36ui (173.202.97.203)
Aug08 00:17 Sitting on 93.1, I'm learning that KBDZ is actually one of the best classic rock stations out there... frankfrank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)
Aug08 00:16 [00:13] Yup, it still is. Likewise, I haven't had anything in your neck of the woods yet for FM, though it isn't common for me to catch stations up north via tropo. - Ethan EM34 (174.53.49.186)
Aug08 00:16 00:11--The most unusual thing about that is that, in my 57 year DX'ing history, good May tropo is otherwise VIRTUALLY UNKNOWN, ever... frankfrank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)
Aug08 00:14 00:11--I kick myself from being so excited about the TV that I didn't check FM (or NWS). I **WOULD** have had 106.1, 104.5, 94.1 at least without a doubt frankfrank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)

Aug08 00:11 ...is Monterrey, Mexico (1162 miles)...ALL their channels even XEFB-2 which might be a Channel 2 record. A few years ago on May 26 frankfrank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)

Aug08 00:10 I consider 600, not 500, as the "MAGIC" tropo distance. ALWAYS HAVE, even when I had none in the 60s. TV tropo record here... frankfrank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)
Aug08 00:08 I have a LOT of 600+ mile tropo (I think like 40 or 50 from Texas alone, before Missouri filled the dial up), all time FM Tropo record 885 miles San Antonio 107.5/106.7 frankfrank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)

Aug07 23:31 Furthest tropo here was the NWS station at Dodge City, Kansas. 666 miles from Paxton, Illinois. Curtis (50.103.118.124)
Aug07 23:19 [22:55] 500 mile Tropo is virutally impossible here. Farthest I received was Channel 68 on TV from West Virginia a few years ago. Over the years I have received under 500 mile Es a few times but it's less common. I live in north central Indiana so I miss alot of the stuff the east coast and gulf coast states always seem to get. -Aaron (3.209.104.124)
Aug07 22:57 My Nebraska, South Dakota, especially Kansas logs speak to what's possible via Plains Tr, but Oklahoma is wicked rare! frankfrank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)

Aug07 22:55 Medium range? 500 miles is like the Bermuda Triangle on FM. I'm fortunate to be on the eastern edge of the Plains, so... frankfrank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)
Aug07 21:13 frankfrank: Yes, it is a new log entry. No other medium range (500 miles), long range (1k miles) heard - KA3JAW FN20jq (65.78.93.142)

Aug07 20:16 [18:17] I'm not gonna be blessed today! Congress is in recess and Trump hates me, so no help from either of those... frankfrank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)
Aug07 20:13 [18:17] I'd even take a good Lubbock opening (~780 miles), I have a rather strange "hole" there, not much logged frankfrank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)
Aug07 20:11 Back from Scrabble at the "Y" - I won two games, but winning is irrelevant to me, it's all about the interactions! frankfrank (184.171.226.155)
Aug07 20:09 Wouldn't be that strange a catch if others had swapping up past 107.9, because 502 miles implies a very high MUF, but that wasn't happening... frankfrank (184.171.226.155)
Aug07 20:06 [17:40] now, KA3JAW, that is one *bizarre* catch for you, congratulations! You WON'T ever hear that again. frankfrank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)

Aug05 23:46 one day i even had to repair it in the dark by flashlight (104.218.68.222)
Aug05 23:41 and its so easy that even me, a non handy non mechanically inclined dude can put it together and not screw it up Paul (104.218.68.222)
Aug05 23:40 with the exception of the wellbrook amp/control ehad, all the parts for it were bought on amazon (104.218.68.222)

Aug05 23:36 Terminated AM loops are actually phased (two) verticals - that's how you get the cardioid pattern (107.192.29.75)

Aug05 17:50 [15:06] Yeah well I'm perfectly happy with analog and don't need to see all the fine details like digital has. If I can see a strand of hair on someones head on a CRT tube it's good enough for me. Plus I don't like the distorted screen size of digital TV....everything is flattened and stretched out. 4:3 frame for me thanks. -Aaron (3.209.109.25)

Aug05 15:52 As for radio, I own quite a few HD receivers, as well as using RDS to confirm stations quite regularly too. - Ethan (174.53.49.186)
Aug05 15:50 I have tried to DX on DTV in the past, but I haven't been too successful with it. Radio is more of my thing though - Ethan EM34 (174.53.49.186)
Aug05 15:46 Also with digital, everything is so well defined. You can see actors' wrinkles, acne, blackheads, etc. 😉 /cdel96 (174.228.8.40)
Aug05 15:31 The one thing DTV has going for it is the subchannels. I like classic TV---and, it's nice to tune a sub, shortly before elections, and NOT see a political ad./cdel96 (174.228.8.40)
Aug05 15:06 LOL they wont be bringing back analog tv... oly htings that might remain analog are tv translators, dont think theyre required to go digital. DReam on Paul (104.218.68.222)
Aug05 14:57 [14:44] Yeah I was a member of the WTFDA for about 16 years and they did mention that brand but I never saw it sold in stores so they probably discontinued that model. Wish they would bring back regular analog UHF VHF TV again. At least if the signal was fuzzy it was still watchable. Now unless it comes in strong, I miss out on stuff I watch because it will display "no signal" intermittently. And this includes semi-local channels. -Aaron IN (3.209.105.224)
Aug05 14:44 [14:29] I'm sure that I purchased the Insignia on recommendation of WTFDA members. Manual tuning (not sure if M'vox has it) tells me what I need to know./cdel96 (174.228.8.40)
Aug05 14:29 What I always hate is that whenever I get Tropo DX on TV (which usually happens in the early morning hours) when I rescan the channels on the Magnavox converter box, I notice the channels it adds will display "no signal" although sometimes they will come back in but not for long. MN is too far for Tropo and too close for Es from here generally. -Aaron IN (3.209.105.224)
Aug05 13:43 [13:31] I started out, using that beeping feature---but it's better to check the Manual Tuning feature. You can see what's "trying" to come in on each different RF channel, if anything./cdel96 (174.228.8.40)
Aug05 13:31 I have an Insignia Box still connected to the defunct Analog TV downstairs, it has that talking beeping SMeter function, if I remember correctly, that was nice, I should reactivate it Jerry M CNY (67.140.72.38)
Aug05 12:48 Despite their being "In tropo range," all I've ever gotten from MD and VA has been Es. 73 de Eric B, Carleton MI EN82hb (68.55.157.43)
Aug05 12:47 Only states I've had both from: MN, SD, NE, MO, KS, TN, IA, and oddly enough, PA! de Eric B, Carleton MI (68.55.157.43)
Aug05 12:46 Final tally: 13 from MN, 15 from ND, and 7 from SD. I've also had tropo to SD once, a couple of years back. de Eric B, Carleton MI (68.55.157.43)
Aug05 12:45 [11:21] I've had MN before, both on tropo and Es, but usually Es to there is toward the northern and western part of the state. Tropo a couple of times to there. de Eric B, Carleton MI (68.55.157.43)
Aug05 11:53 Here are the MN logs from July 20th I received from North Central Indiana: 100.1 KLKS "Talk 100" Pequot Lakes, 92.5 KQRS "KQ-92" Twin Cities, 92.1 WMIS-FM "The River" Blackduck & 104.3 KZIO "Minnesota Public Radio" Duluth. All new logs for me that day. -Aaron IN (3.209.105.224)
Aug05 11:21 [11:15] Pretty much the same thing here Eric. I sometimes pick up the Dakota states but what really surprised me was the short hop Es coming in from Minnesota. First time in 25 years that I recall getting anything from that state. Kind of wish there were more openings this year like the one on July 20th. -Aaron (3.18.159.153)
Aug05 11:20 I will concede, though, that the tropo that I HAVE had this year has brought in some rare, closer-in stuff; some that usually don't register in HD have done so. Also had a few decode RDS which normally don't. For what that's worth. de Eric B, Carleton MI (68.55.157.43)
Aug05 11:18 Sadly, that opening wasn't enough to salvage the season; I still say it's hovering around a D- to an F. Long-range tropo (Read: >200 miles) hasn't happened yet. de Eric B, Carleton MI (68.55.157.43)
Aug05 11:17 Closest log was KQQL 107.9 Anoka, MN; soon as I wrote it down, it switched to another one from a bit farther! KQQL was previously heard on tropo. de Eric B Carleton MI (68.55.157.43)
Aug05 11:15 Caught one from Casper, WY, but most of it was ND, SD, and MN -- which I wanted more of. The next day brought a lot of Gulf Coast stuff I'd never logged! de Eric B, Carleton MI (68.55.157.43)
Aug05 11:14 GM gents! 20 July I missed most of due to work, but managed to get in on the last two hours; by that time it had shifted to a more desirable area. de Eric B (68.55.157.43)
Aug05 11:03 I used to buy stuff on ebay all the time but haven't for years now on account of how they changed policies and most sellers won't accept cash or postal money orders in the mail so I'm out of luck there. All the TV's I own are CRT's and still work good to this day. Refuse to buy any HDTV. I'm a purist I guess. -Aaron IN (3.18.159.153)
Aug05 06:52 [02:57] The Zenith DTT901 is a DTV converter box, sold during the transition in 2008-2009. A favorite of DTV DXers, though by then, most converter boxes were good. N8NU in MI (192.252.196.14)

Aug05 02:57 [02:28] Are you talking tuner, converter, or am I just ignorant on the subject? ... Mike (73.252.142.49)
Aug05 02:54 Now that the CRTs are getting weak in the last CRTs made, it's relatively easy to find them at thrift stores N8NU in MI (192.252.196.14)
Aug05 02:51 [22:22] I've seen at least ten DTV by Es in Michigan, KOTA maybe 20 times. Also WTSP-DRT 4 (FL) which supposedly sends 30W ERP in my direction (192.252.196.14)

Aug05 02:27 There was another opening this year where I heard KLLL-96.3 TX for about a minute, yet 300 miles SE Gary in Boise was getting top-of-band for an hour, IIRC. Amazing how Rick moves to Clarkston to get away from Seattle IBOC/lack-of-Es and yet gets a lack there too... > Yakima CN96 (97.90.95.142)
Aug05 02:25 that reply is RE to Frank 1926. That 7/20 was really good on the East Coast...but did it cross the Rockies? Nah. PNW didn't even get an 88.3 scrap from that. > Yakima CN96 (97.90.95.142)

Aug04 23:26 Also I've heard of those Insignia and zenith converter boxes but never found them. The ones I have are the Magnavox units from 2009. They all still work surprisingly for as cheaply as they were made. Units get very hot if left on for over an hour. -Aaron IN (3.209.108.81)
Aug04 23:23 I'm buried in a few locals and also many semi-locals. Most of the radios I own have poor selectivity which means channels bleed through next to each other badly. -Aaron (3.209.108.81)

Aug04 22:47 [22:22] Sounds like you need to find an old Insignia/Zenith box from the 00's era. You can do COMPLETELY manual tuning, even sit on a blank channel and hope/wait for a target to come in. You WILL get DTV skip, then. frankfrank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)
Aug04 22:41 Yeah there's always something that interferes with DX'ing. Finding a good location away from the congestion isn't easy. -Aaron (3.209.108.81)
Aug04 22:30 I go to my favorite DX location with a portable Vizio TV and its a PITA because its windy, cold, and no room for a antenna that points anywhere ... Mike (73.252.142.49)
Aug04 22:29 That's another issue with DTV. I cannot DX at home because of a TV/FM-HD less than a mile away, and on a hill facing south towards ocean. Cable required! ... Mike (73.252.142.49)
Aug04 22:22 [18:25] I've never once received Es on DTV. Tropo is hard enough because you gotta keep rescanning the converter box and unless the signal is strong, it's just garbage on the screen or "no signal". Used to get TONS of DX on analog TV but not anymore even with a giant outdoor antenna up 50 feet in the air....smh. -Aaron IN (3.18.156.6)

Aug04 19:24 Getting a new Kansas Tr log on FM (KERP-96.3 Ingalls 620 miles) was great, and I LOVE new Tr stations from Kansas like nowhere else, but that doesn't save the season. Oh, TV maxed out at KOOD-16 nearly 500 miles. Still a relog frankfrank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)
Aug04 19:21 TV Tr this year maxed out at 305 miles (new Omaha 26, 31 repacks) and THAT'S ALL for TV, not even one Es signal, wow. frankfrank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)
Aug04 19:19 ...MAXIMUM of 6 new via Tr, 3 via Es, this year on FM! Not even 10 signals logged on Es all summer. Grim! frankfrank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)
Aug04 19:15 Solid F, deeply so, without doubt. I wasn't in "EN40 season" yet on June 5, and July 20 was the date I HAD to choose, needing to go to Chicago... (184.171.226.155)

Aug04 18:36 86 logs this season, I'm not sure how much time I had here but I would say between 18-24 hours. - Ethan EM34 (174.53.49.186)
Aug04 18:25 [13:19] I believe there is 1 DTV station I can receive by Es from here. TV Es went away because analog went away ... Mike (73.252.142.49)
Aug04 17:19 4 new logs - a new 'worst season' record for that too. Lack of DX sure helped did it... > Yakima CN96 (97.90.95.142)
Aug04 17:18 [1532] F here! Holy smokes 90 seconds of Es in July? And the only interesting openings happening ever so briefly on 6/5 and 5/20? This beats 2012 as the worst season ever. Here's hoping that 2020 has to be better than this. > Yakima CN96 (97.90.95.142)
Aug04 15:53 No, certainly, but for some Austin action, so-far this may be a worst season I've ever had here in Sherman Oaks (104.172.0.143)

Aug04 15:32 [14:55] A D grade for sure. If not for June 5, it would be a solid F. - Rick SE WA (24.116.127.123)
Aug04 15:10 Just one brief tropo opening to western South Dakota on June 29th, and one a couple nights ago to central Minnesota. No Es to report this year. I'm taking a mulligan on 2019 and looking ahead already to next year -- Rick in South Omaha EN21af (174.71.76.228)
Aug04 14:55 Rick, this overall season gets either a D- or an F. That opening to MN a couple of weeks back helped somewhat, but wasn't enough to salvage the season. de Eric B, Carleton MI EN82hb (68.55.157.43)
Aug04 14:44 Was eager this year to see what this new location would bring, but got little except for one decent day. Very disappointing season. Doesn't help to have more open freqs if nothing comes in to fill them! - Rick SE WA (24.116.127.123)
Aug04 14:40 Eric, 2019 was promising at the start but got dismal fast here in the West. At least Midwest and East have trop to fall back on when skip is lacking. Here it's skip or nothing, and mostly, this year it was nothing. - Rick SE WA (24.116.127.123)
Aug04 14:14 I'm mad about likely the last Sporadic-E opening i'll see for FMBC for the spring/summer had KLPX and DXmaps plotted 125 MHz but never went higher. Too close to 2m - Eric CM96 (67.169.49.145)

Aug04 13:20 Analog never went away completely Mike. CONgress and FCC decided to get rid of it and force everyone to conform to a obsolete platform known as digital. I've had more of a struggle with digital tv technology than I ever did with analog. To this day I still believe analog to be vastly superior and DX worked better on it anyways. -Aaron IN (3.18.156.160)

Aug04 03:19 TV stunk. KDTN Ch 2 started 9/1988. 2,4,5 were local and DXing became tough. Then too many locals on FM, but made do de dwi (66.191.27.100)

Aug04 02:05 This is the Antenna I use for TV/FM DXing. It's about 7-8 years old but I forget the model number. It's looks a lot like the HD8200U but it's older. Anyone know the model of this?

Aug04 01:28 I didn't have a portable scanner until spring 2018, so I missed out on any 162 that could have shown up when I had 2Es on 6/30/17. The MUF was way over 144mhz on DXmaps - it was near or at high-band VHF at times. > Yakima CN96 (97.90.95.142)
Aug04 00:54 [17:50] I had analog TV Es to Colombia at about 2330 UTC, but it was weak as a kitten: 2 RCN, 4 CARACOL./cdel96 (174.228.8.9)

Aug03 22:17 Only had NWR once via Es, and that was from Phoenix. Probably from Jackson MS, over Tucson's NWR. June 9 2003. Heard Central timecheck, MS forecasts, but no station ID. In for about three or four minutes, along with analog channel 7 video. - Rick SE WA (24.116.127.123)
Aug03 21:38 Or an opening if the MUF gets high enough. I'm sure the July 20th opening made it up to NWR frequencies, but I was on the road and didn't bring a weather radio with me. - Ethan EM34 (174.53.49.186)
Aug03 21:37 NWR DX has been a bit difficult here, it may just be from only having 7 frequencies to use instead of 100 on FM, but I still love to see what I can get if a good tropo is going on - Ethan EM34 (174.53.49.186)
Aug03 21:12 [14:51] Dang, Josh! Nice catch! It's obviously a pest for me, and I went looking for other NOAA stations last night during tropo openings, but couldn't get anything outside of a 100-mile radius from here. Nothing new, either. -- Rick in South Omaha EN21af (174.71.76.228)

Jul29 17:44 Today would be a wonderful day for Es to blow up out west - not only 'about darn time', but because historically this has been good, and I don't work tonight. > Yakima CN96 (97.90.95.142)
Jul29 17:42 12 years ago was my first Es! KTRA 102.1 NM from Bothell WA...and I wasn't even looking for them, was looking for KSWW Aberdeen as we had just come back from family trip to ocean beaches... > Yakima CN96 (97.90.95.142)

Jul29 16:41 [16:29] Hi Randy. I worked a nice 2M opening that day and year (Cuba to Georgia from DFW). Also 7/29/2010 was an excellent year. One of the most active 10M PropNET PSK31 activity days occurred. de k7dwi ex-ka5dwi (66.191.27.100)

Jul28 21:41 And the off air pick up of a C3 FM works surprisingly well from 50 miles away, even considering theres a 13 watt 90.5 transmit antenna 10 0feet above the 90.3 input antenna for the 100.3 translator. Paul (174.209.31.84)
Jul28 21:39 K262AI uses a Sony XDRF1HD to pick up KWYC 90.3 .. and if the power goes out, it doesnt come back up. Thats al lwe hope the problem is. Paul (174.209.31.84)
Jul28 21:39 DC would possibly be doable on tropo also, but my lone catch from there was Es. I think all my NY logs were tropo, though all my NJ, MA, CT, and RI logs were Es. de Eric B, Carleton MI (68.55.157.43)

Jul28 21:38 I've heard of MD, NC and VT coming here on tropo before, but have yet to see it; nothing on VT yet, and all my MD and NC logs were Es. de Eric B, Carleton MI (68.55.157.43)
Jul28 21:36 Paul, my longest tropo was about 700 miles, to Salem, SD a couple of years back. de Eric B, Carleton MI (68.55.157.43)

Jul28 21:34 MY longest tropo catch in NW PA was the 100kw WPFF 90.5 Sturgeon Bay, WI.. 490 miles. Paul (174.209.31.84)
Jul28 21:34 [2131] In addition to the main station log, I also have another file that breaks my totals down by frequency, state/province, and country. de Eric B, Carleton MI (68.55.157.43)
Jul28 21:33 Because of that, Cleveland is more or less a semi-local at about 80 miles during the summer. de Eric B, Carleton MI (68.55.157.43)
Jul28 21:33 Tropo every day to 150 miles was not uncommon and often quite strong in NW PA (174.209.31.84)
Jul28 21:32 Paul, tropo here in Carleton can be interesting sometimes; we're close enough to Lake Erie to get in on some of the lake enhancement. de Eric B, Carleton MI (68.55.157.43)
Jul28 21:31 All my frequencies that have <10 have locals or semi-locals. Just went down the totals. de Eric B, Carleton MI (68.55.157.43)
Jul28 21:30 I miss the tropo from NW PA.. I was 80 miles E/SE of Erie... it was... nothing short of amazing some days! Paul (174.209.31.84)
Jul28 21:29 My lowest channel has two logged; one is a local that NEVER goes off. Second place: two have four logged, both also have locals that never go off. de Eric B, Carleton MI (68.55.157.43)
Jul28 21:22 [20:54] I get my worst tropo when Hepburn maps say it will be best. I can't trust them here, but I understand they work in other parts of the country ... Mike (73.252.142.49)
Jul28 21:10 Um, HAS, not "had" (from Macomb IL), because I'm still adding when conditions permit, LOL. I HAVE to throw that "when" qualifier in here because, you know, *2019*... frankfrank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 21:10 I think I wil labout wet myself if I can end the FM Eskip season and log one of the stations I host a show on. Paul (174.209.31.84)
Jul28 21:08 In Ohio, yes, some of my freq's had AWFUL totals, like maybe even a couple with five or fewer. From Macomb I think my worst freq had like 17 or 21 logged frankfrank (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 21:06 I'm not a member of WTFDA either, but all of the catches in my home log are all from the immediate Little Rock area, which I would consider close enough. - Ethan EM34 (174.53.49.186)
Jul28 21:05 Even with the Channel Master 9-element and rotator (20 feet up; rooftop), I think I only ever logged TWO other 105.5s with Sylvania on: the old WIFF (Auburn IN) and WCHO Washington Court House frankfrank (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 21:02 105.5's [Sylvania] stick was (and maybe still is?) nearly due north of me then, and quite close, pretty much invincible... frankfrank (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 21:00 Ms 92.9 KMIY Tucson, AZ ...w/ "More variety, on My 92.9"...5-sec burn..strong. 93kW @ 730 Miles...re-log Gary...DN13..Boise (107.77.245.7)
Jul28 21:00 Too long ago, but I vaguely remember one of those within-25-miles-but-didn't-count things was a 105.5, a Floridian I think, heard near Bowling Green OH when I lived near the Toledo airport... frankfrank (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 20:58 Paul, this season has been so loaded with Es (I'm kidding) that I haven't got to unIDs yet. Even in this hellish of a season I have quite a few - and will work on those when I am back in Toronto. But the comments were helpful. I have a feeling this one will be one of the most interesting - certainly high in the weird category. Thanks for asking. Saul ON (142.114.219.220)
Jul28 20:57 My 25-mile criterion is really more of a "Could I have easily logged this from home?" thing... frankfrank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 20:55 ...(Those 10-or-15 milers were when I lived in Ohio)...but I also counted WHRV-89.5 here when heard at Monmouth 32 miles (though heard at home since) frankfrank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 20:54 In sum: The clubs are a way to organize the hobby and they're crucial in these years where radio is fast evolving into something that will soon be unrecognizable to the BCB DXer. Like tropo forecasts - now there's a map that works almost perfectly day in day out.. There's a few good reasons for that! Saul ON (142.114.219.220)
Jul28 20:53 You posted it in some group on FB, i forget which.. a few months ago. Paul (174.209.31.84)
Jul28 20:53 BTW SAul, did you ever figure out who that 93.3 UNID was that sounded like portuguese and we assumed was WFAR? (174.209.31.84)
Jul28 20:52 I've also been somewhat malleable on the 25-mile rule. I've NOT counted one or two mobile within 25 miles while mobile that would have been highly unlikely from home frankfrank (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 20:52 But these aren't rules, per se. No one will kick you out of a club, or give a rat's tush how you log your stations. OTOH if I see a log posted that doesn't make sense, I will say something (in a friendly way) whether the person is a club member or non-member... Saul ON (142.114.219.220)
Jul28 20:52 I'm just disappointed it looks liek this FM DX Season will be ending without me having logged myself on WVIG Brazil, IN or WFGA Hicksville, OH.. thsoe would be my most likely based on distance. Paul (174.209.31.84)
Jul28 20:50 My 6-meter friend is also thrilled about his Berlin NH QSO on short skip, and that he worked NH, but his log doesn't care that much that it was NH...though his log does care that it was a new county... frankfrank (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 20:50 The 25-mile (or whatever) rule isn't a bad one for someone like me who does some mobile DX. It gave me initial standards to go by when I was first figuring things out way back when. There's also the matter of call changes, city of licence changes, etc. I've stuck by this because I want my logs over many decades to be consistent. Saul ON (142.114.219.220)
Jul28 20:47 <20:40> Paul, c'mon - most of the 'top' loggers over the last 40 years or so I've belonged to WTFDA have been rank and file members with no real active role, if any, in the club. In fact people have had to be reminded time and time again to pass their stats to the column editor... Saul ON (142.114.219.220)
Jul28 20:46 Frank, my first time in San Diego, January 1975, surprised to hear a 1550 in TJ running PAMS Series23 jingles in Spanish. Chime in Sherman Oaks (104.172.0.143)
Jul28 20:46 The friend who works 2 is VERY happy to have worked Wyoming, and the 6 guy is thrilled with his California, Vancouver, etc. stuff, but officially their logs don't really care much about that frankfrank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 20:43 Frank, that was on 7 June 2017, and most of what I logged that evening was indeed the Dakotas. de Eric B, Carleton MI (68.55.157.43)
Jul28 20:42 Two of my very, very best friends (who got married) in central New Jersey do EXACTLY this with their 6-meter and 2-meter catches. One of the guys is 6, the other one works 2... frankfrank (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 20:42 the WTFDA database is great for fm, topaz designs for Am.. and ive found radio-locator to genberally be accurate for US based stuff.. its mex and can that it screws up (174.209.31.84)
Jul28 20:40 Yeah true Saul, we keep our logs by the method we're comfortable with. Hey, I know hams whose logs are county-based and grid square-based, entirely ignoring state lines and such. frankfrank (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 20:40 Some of the most reliable resources for DXers on the web are produced through volunteer efforts coordinated through clubs like WTFDA, NRC, IRCA etc. If you use the WTFDA station database, the most reliable station list for FM around. (I can't speak for the TV list which Doug Smith of WTFDA organizes because I no longer DX TV). Non-club efforts like Radio Locator have their use but contain a lot of old stuff that no longer makes sense. There's also Google ... has its place for researching unIDs but it's as accurate as my neighbour Ned... Saul ON (142.114.219.220)

Jul28 20:40 A handful of people and club officers/directors care, Saul.. to be included in their records (174.209.31.84)
Jul28 20:37 Eric-in-Carleton, when did you do THAT? That's a great catch, and even better that it was WA in all respects. 2ES...were you getting the Dakotas at the same time? Frank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 20:36 The clubs have no rules. If you're thinking FM or TV stats, there are guidelines like 25 mile radius to slightly reduce apples to oranges comparisons for those Stat columns. Other than that no one in the clubs cares what or how you log beyond a handful of people who over the years have expressed an opinion. Saul ON (142.114.219.220)
Jul28 20:35 My "Spookane" logs (sorry, intentional typo, just havin' fun here lol) are only 98.1 and...oh, there's 96.1 again! Washington or Idaho sites? Frank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 20:33 i dont keep records per se, liek states logged... all i care about is where the transmtiter is located (174.209.31.84)
Jul28 20:32 I figure, other that the 96.1 "Oregon" quirk, that counting stations by COL (and apparent state) "averages itself out" anyway. Kansas side of the KC metro has some of these, too, like the 94.9 frankfrank (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 20:32 Likewise, En35id. That's why I never joined any clubs -- far too many rules and politics to contend with. de Eric B, Carleton MI (68.55.157.43)
Jul28 20:29 KDRK is on Mica Peak (174.209.31.84)
Jul28 20:29 Not a member of wtfda so that rule doesn't apply to my log lol. En35id (73.94.138.87)
Jul28 20:29 KDRK (174.209.31.84)
Jul28 20:29 KSRK is 1.95 miles west of the state line (174.209.31.84)
Jul28 20:28 ...which I'd been dismissing the C&W I'd been hearing there as. He alerted me, I cought a record, got a Webcast match, just before it fell to WBCT again. de Eric B, Carleton MI (68.55.157.43)
Jul28 20:28 I ALSO COUNT STATIONS BY COL, so my log DOES count Oregon, but it's "dirty, not clean" - would love to get LaGrande or KJDY 94.5 frankfrank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 20:27 Though, I do kinda wonder if KDRK-93.7's tx is really in Idaho instead of Spokane; fellow DXer heard ads for Idaho on there, which tipped us off it wasn't WBCT... (68.55.157.43)
Jul28 20:26 [20:24] SWEET! How cool is that?? frankfrank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 20:26 Re:2025 I do the same. I count COL regardless of where TX is. Mileage will reflect TX. En35id (73.94.138.87)
Jul28 20:25 Frank, I count them by COL. So, if the COL is Hammond, IN but studios, offices, and tx are in Chicago...I'm still counting it as Hammond, IN! de Eric B, Carleton MI (68.55.157.43)
Jul28 20:25 So, is the Spokane antenna farm on higher-terrain Idaho ground, or are the antennas scattered around? I didn't look it up. At least my 94.1 Clarkston is-and-was on Washington ground... frankfrank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 20:25 Ms 92.9 KISM Bellingham, WA.....7-sec burn...w/ The Chain...Fleetwood Mac....50kW @ 400 Miles...new and on my hit list a long time... Gary...DN13..Boise (107.77.245.7)
Jul28 20:24 Annnnnnnd.. i just got a facebook friend request from the director of Radio at Universidad Autonoma de Durango Campus Los Mochis.. Lobo FM's licensee (174.209.31.84)
Jul28 20:23 There are also stations with some combination therof; WLMB-40 Toledo's studios, offices, and COL are OH, but the tx is out by Adrian, MI. Like Paul said, all good and legal. de Eric B, Carleton MI (68.55.157.43)
Jul28 20:22 Well, something got lost in translation with Lobos FM but it isnt XHLUAD. That was an interesting conversaiton I just had with them! Paul (174.209.31.84)
Jul28 20:20 So, to truly log Oregon here (in ALL respects), targets from here are appallingly barren and begin with distances in the deep 1400s...not easy at all frankfrank (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 20:20 Agreed, Paul. I can think of a few TV stations as you describe -- studios, offices, and tx in one state, but COL is another one. de Eric B, Carleton MI (68.55.157.43)
Jul28 20:18 [20:12] The point...is that, sadly, I'm "cheated" out of truly logging 48 states here, because WTFDA rules have you count antenna site, so my "Ontario OR" 96.1 catch is just another Idaho station in WTFDA criteria. Bummer. frankfrank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 20:15 [20:08] Thought so. Boise antenna farm is IMPRESSIVE, nearly on par with South Mountain (Phoenix) and Cedar Hill (Dallas-FW), 2007(?) IRCA Convention in Boise included a marvelous Boise antenna farm tour frankfrank (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 20:12 and the point? Being licensed in one state with a tower or studio in another is quite legal and fine (65.131.89.111)
Jul28 20:10 93.3 KRKL is also at the same Oregon tower site - COL is Walla Walla WA. > Yakima CN96 (97.90.95.142)
Jul28 20:09 Another local example. 92.5 KZHR Dayton WA (Regional Mexican) is located just across the border in Oregon at Pikes Peak (Blue Mtns). > Yakima CN96 (97.90.95.142)
Jul28 20:09 And I don't need to know if the music is current or 50 years old...I just like it anyway, man! frankfrank (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 20:08 Yes, KARO 98.7 is located at the same hillside NE of Boise. > Yakima CN96 (97.90.95.142)
Jul28 20:08 I only catch Spanish words here and there, understand maybe 2nd Grade reading level at best, but the vitality and liveliness of the Mexican stations with live jocks is so refreshing... frankfrank (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 20:06 Nothing wrong with that, Frank. (65.131.89.111)
Jul28 20:05 Back to earlier, when I'm around San Diego area I usually over-feast on Tijuana stations, barely listen to USA at all. I hunger for a wider variety of music genres and they deliver. frankfrank (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 20:01 [19:22] Yes, "remove all asterisks to get proper email" or such; I do that too, on my web page! I assume the spambots harvest valid emails from website .docx forms and everything, so I play safe. frankfrank (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 19:57 A great example of this in USA is the Boise radio market, which has at least one "Oregon" station at the Boise antenna farm north of town (96.1)...could be two, is the 98.7 also there? frankfrank (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 19:54 [18:32] They're obviously branding themselves for the "greater Torreon market" which includes smaller Gomez Palacio on the Durango side. Their stick could be on either side, of course. I know nothing about where the higher terrain is in that market. frankfrank (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 19:46 ...but I've VERY rarely been around the French-speaking Canadian stations since, as it's such a hassle driving a big utility van into that country frankfrank (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 19:44 I similarly noticed a grater variety on the French stations in Quebec in 1984 and listened to them for that reason, but I' (184.171.226.155)

Jul28 19:42 ...stations that play English-speaking music (with, usually, STRICT limited formats). Though I don't understand it WELL (but a little) that's why I like Mexican radio frankfrank EN40ql (184.171.226.155)
Jul28 19:40 [JimT, 17:25/17:34] Yes, I agree! Even a lot of USA Mexican stations will play quite a variety of music, and the non-USA ones often have live DJ's which is unheard of on the USA... (184.171.226.155)

Jul28 19:08 Jon, thanks much, I'm hoping one of the three is what I hear. My gut and hope is its XHITT or XHLUAD (65.131.89.111)
Jul28 19:05 Best of luck, Paul, in getting it solved. If it isn't one of the three, then we can expand further into Mexico. - de Jon in FN03 (216.121.182.130)

Jul28 18:33 and WTFDA doesnt list the Torreon signal (65.131.89.111)
Jul28 18:33 and Wiki doesnt listen the Torreon signal (65.131.89.111)
Jul28 18:32 Interestingly, WTFDA and Wiki list a Lobos FM on 88.7 in Gomez Palacio, Durango. The Lobos FM page only lists 88.7 in Torren, Coahuila (65.131.89.111)
Jul28 18:26 Jim, I did.. i sent an email and fb in both english and spanish. .and kept it as simple and clear as I could. Paul (65.131.89.111)
Jul28 18:23 Thats what my logic about how FM DXing works tells me.. but my logic is often far from perfect. Paul (65.131.89.111)
Jul28 18:23 And i think if my music station is either XHITT or XHLUAD, the Formula affiliate I heard was XHEX Bellavista, Sinaloa (65.131.89.111)
Jul28 18:22 Suggestion on using Google Translate to Spanish. Keep sentences short (no compound sentences), stay away from *big* words. Ask short questions and THANK them for their reply. Done that way, it won't get screwed up in Google Translate > de JimT/MO EM37 (174.234.139.80)

Jul28 18:10 Already bought a new rotor unit set before the fix. Now there's a rotor for another antenna. - Kegan EM26te (162.104.118.90)
Jul28 18:06 It turned out the rotor had stopped turning because the wire connection between the rotor to the indoor control unit broke. The connection has since been repaired - on Friday. - Kegan EM26te (162.104.118.90)

Jul28 17:34 Here's a suggestion Paul, when there is absolutely NO dx stirring, try listening ONLINE to some MX border FM's. You don't have to like it, just get used to what it sounds like :-) > de JimT/MO EM37 (174.234.139.80)
Jul28 17:26 Jim, thats what I kinda have seen... so not knowing mexican radio.. its a bit harder for me. Paul (65.131.89.111)
Jul28 17:25 I will drop a line to Radio Bilingue (65.131.89.111)
Jul28 17:25 Keep in mind that Spanish broadcasters don't chop up the music genres the way US broadcasters do, they're much more diverse in their offerings > de JimT/MO EM37 (174.234.139.80)
Jul28 17:25 Thanks Jim... I probed for a little more info on the music station specifically on the thread. Too strong a signal to ignore and like i said, i have few mexican logs. Paul (65.131.89.111)
