Jun17 00:48 There might still be an analog in SE Manitoba on Channel 29. I was certainly looking for analogs. No other stray analogs than mentioned earlier, whether I studied any lists or not--Frank M. (
Jun17 00:39 Frank is there anything in Canada? I remember 8/16/71 in an opening just like this and Winnipeg popped in. Bolin-IL (
Jun17 00:29 Oh...maybe yes on Champaign. I was certainly getting WCIA-48 to some degree off the back/side. The mystery 21 is the only one I'm trying to resolve, the most illogical logging here in at least 6 or 7 years--Frank M. (
Jun17 00:05 Frank, 39+ Champaign is still on air. Maybe ya got off the back?? (
Jun16 23:42 I probably had tv tropo but am too forgetful to turn my insignia box on en25 (
Jun16 23:28 Whole lotta nothing going on - Don (
Jun16 22:44 No, just guessing. NOT counting--Frank M. (
Jun16 22:43 A 39+ analog "got away" from me this morning - too weak to determine its programming source. I'm guessing Aberdeen SD--Frank M. (
Jun16 21:44 I really don't mind missing due to work - Rich, PA FN11 (
Jun16 21:41 I have tommorow off as well - Rich, PA FN11 (
Jun16 21:39 Yous think yous got it bad, I have missed a lot due to work and then other responsibilities by having to Rent out rooms to make things meet their ends. Thus DX'ing has been on the back burner. LM/FM29 (
Jun16 21:29 Rich, I had the day off too, and nothing in the way of Es. Missed yesterday's by half an hour due to work. Just can't win for losing! de Eric B, Carleton, MI (
Jun16 21:22 So much for having the day off - Rich, PA FN11 (
Jun16 21:06 Recorded 91.7 all afternoon ... bupkis. de k9rzz EN52 WI (
Jun16 21:00 I wonder if K33MI is actually on? Opening was extremely focused in that direction, without anything evey really noticeable from Sioux City--Frank M. (
Jun16 20:08 Any help or input would be appreciated - 97.7 FM - not great copy and lots of QSB - but think I hear a partial ID de N8UUP Bill EN82 (
Jun16 19:31 Looks like they relay KDLT rf 47 - de JimT/MO EM37 (

Jun16 19:30 Frank, Aberdeen 33 has a CP out with new calls, K33MI - de JimT/MO EM37 (
Jun16 19:19 [16:36] 2011 sounds about right. I'm sure 33 is a relog as well.--Frank M. (
Jun16 19:18 As far as 33, using, searching for K33GX turns up Springfield, but searching for K33HC [Aberdeen] turns up nothing--Frank M. (
Jun16 18:58 Mystery tpt 21: I was hoping to find something that's supposed to pick up KUSD-34 and may have had KTCA-34 insteasd. No dice. Still stumped on this--Frank M. (
Jun16 16:47 Frank, Matt had CR and the QCs on the TV side. Inspired, I tried to reel in 98.9 and 101.3 from the QCs, as both are open freqs here. No such luck. -- Rick in South Omaha EN21af (
Jun16 16:43 No wonder i had Knoxville IA (translator) on 95.3 earlier...KOKX IS OFF!--Frank M. (
Jun16 16:36 35 and 40 were relogs, I remember seeing you log them in 2011 (I think?) > Yakima CN96 (
Jun16 16:35 [1529] Those three STILL exist? Goodness, you'd think KDLT would convert them to digital long ago. You're probably their only watcher! > Yakima CN96 (

Jun16 16:09 [15:40] KSMN is on 15, could that be it? - Matt EN21 (
Jun16 16:04 Any help on what my "tpt" on 21 was? (KTCA or KTCI) I'm finding nothing--Frank M. (
Jun16 15:42 [15:29] something tells me 35, 40 may also be relogs...and 42 almost surely new--Frank M. (
Jun16 15:41 Tr 93.9 KSPO West Pains MO "Q 94" (304 mi) relog - de RNA/OK EM16gj (
Jun16 15:40 Tropo pretty much dead here, too...just some lingering traces. I'd like to know what "ate" KYOU-15 earlier--Frank M. (
Jun16 15:39 [14:39] They have t keep those analogs on, for all of the three remaining analog customers--Frank M. (
Jun16 15:38 Frank, all I have on UHF is KC and thats all Milford reports too. SD FM died. Bolin-IL (
Jun16 15:31 Those are all analogs...also KXI71-162.525 with Brookings in their ID; and KCSD-24/23 Sioux Falls--Frank M. (
Jun16 15:29 Tr Semi-stale loggings (an hour ago) K35GR, K40FZ, K42FI all with NBC/KDLV/KDLT; also if K33GX springfield SD I think I remember the same quandary before (does the Abredeen exist?) so 33 probably a relog--Frank M (
Jun16 15:03 Tr KDLO-3 Watertown SD (full decode, RARE relog) 470 miles--Frank M. (

Jun16 14:39 [below] Is it profitable at all for ANY US TV station (outside of the ch 6/87.7's) to still run analog???/cdEL96 (
Jun16 14:39 Tr 96.7 KTCK Flower Mound TX "The Ticket" (203 mi) relog - de RNA/OK EM16gj (
Jun16 14:39 Considering an upgrade from FM-5 to Innovantenna 8 Element. Worth it? (
Jun16 14:39 [14:10] Yeah, you're right about that...though WEEK is so strong that even KWKB is kind of rare here--Frank M. (
Jun16 14:38 [14:20] Aberdeen not listed in the database, only Springfield (with KDLT/KDLV)--Frank M. (
Jun16 14:36 Tr something weak on 39+ as well (Aberdeen listed with KTTW-12); can't narrow down what programming this is--Frank M. (
Jun16 14:22 Could also be K33GX Springfield (west of Yankton). Both are listed as still on and analog. (
Jun16 14:20 [14:12] K33HC Aberdeen? _ Matt EN21 (
Jun16 14:12 Tr analog 33+ with NBC from northwest??--Frank M. (
Jun16 14:10 [13:52] I presume KWKB was part of the problem too... Matt EN21 (
Jun16 14:08 Tr KSDR-92.9 "KS-93" blasting in. This is so much an August-type opening--Frank M. (
Jun16 14:06 Tr both 100.3 KJKK & 102.9 KDMX Dallas still coming in strong here after several hours - de RNA/OK EM16gj (
Jun16 14:06 oops should refer to 14:00 (
Jun16 14:05 [13:52] Knoxville IA coming in so strong is keeping me from finally logging KCHE-92.1, though--Frank M. (
Jun16 14:05 [13:54] I should say "openings to the deep northwest" - Des Moines, etc. aren't uncommon in early summer--Frank M. (
Jun16 14:00 Tr Craziest catch of the day? Not far. But...K237DH-95.3 Knoxville IA ("KNIA") taking out 100kw KOKX without phasing!--Frank M. (
Jun16 13:54 This is going the only direction where Tr is usually SEASON-SPECIFIC...openings to the NW are almost ALWAYS August or early September, if at all--Frank M. (

Jun16 13:32 [13:28] SWEET! This opening is *EXACTLY* as predicted yesterday on the Hepburn map. That doesn't always happen, Rock Rapids 360 miles--Frank M. (
Jun16 13:30 Tr WHAT'S THIS??? "PPB" (Prairie Public B/c) on 20, as "19-1" there something in ND here??? Certainly new. What happened to KSMQ?--Frank M. (
Jun16 13:28 I though KSIN was on 28... It is. That's K43LX-D in Rock Rapids, IA. Nice catch! - Matt EN21 (
