Dec04 00:56 Pretty well. I also knew every station I could expect to hear, and the sequence of stations as well. If I got lost, the sequence could pinpoint for me ... Mike (73.252.142.49)
Dec04 00:51 00:24...and you could tell what frequency you were tuned to? - Jimmy (69.71.4.159)

Dec03 21:13 the Aug 1962 service shop repair to get its FM working seemed just to involve replacing a hefty filter resistor in the 5Y3GT rectifier circuit - de WA5IYX (99.69.76.119)
Dec03 21:10 when I first peeked there in 1958-59 one big cap lead was cut free - got Photofact to resolder it - only in AF tone circuit - de WA5IYX (99.69.76.119)
Dec03 21:07 OK ... I should take a photo of that 1949 Stewart-Warner under its chassis - lots of wax-paper capacitors there - de WA5IYX (99.69.76.119)
Dec03 20:53 Couldn't beat the prices though....all I had was a paper route./cd (172.56.27.29)
Dec03 20:19 Of course I was not a DXer then....but the lack of selectivity was something else./cd (172.56.27.29)

Dec03 19:14 ....the radios I had couldn't often get anything between 96.3 & 97.3, selectivity on those rx's being so poor!/cd (172.56.27.29)

Dec03 18:16 [17:41] Ok, I keep thinking you are closer to me than you are. It's 2x Es for me here in NJ. Though anything over 1300 miles is still a good shout! Bob-Nj Fn20 (73.215.50.184)

Dec03 17:57 [17:45] 770/cdEL96 (172.56.27.29)
Dec03 17:52 [17:41] Don't think I had 2x, though. Furthest log yesterday was Mérida, YC (XHMIA, XHYU), which is only 1364 miles from me...that's still 1x, right? // Lee VA (71.62.51.111)
Dec03 17:50 [17:41] Thanks Bob! Nice to get an unexpected strong opening like that, especially this time of year. Just happened to turn the radio on at the right time! // Lee VA (71.62.51.111)
Dec03 17:48 [17:32] You logged WAFX via tropo? That's gotta be, what...800 miles for you, right? Amazing...gotta step up my game! // Lee VA (71.62.51.111)
Dec03 17:45 Excellent points all around cd... you are right about the paradox! so sad! // Lee VA (71.62.51.111)
Dec03 17:43 [17:12] Agreed Jim. Dying to know who is even listening to legacy full-power stations, much less all these new rimshot translators that you can't even hold for the length of a cross-town commute! // Lee VA (71.62.51.111)
Dec03 17:41 Lee VA, Nice job yesterday with the Mexican logs! It's great to get some Es in the winter, let alone 2X Es. Bob-Nj Fn20 (73.215.50.184)
Dec03 17:40 ...“enabling a few hundred (?) hobbyists to listen for unstable distant signals, during unpredictable atmospheric events” doesn’t make the top 50! // Lee VA (71.62.51.111)
Dec03 17:39 Agreed. I realize that, of all the reasons to stop the great translator/LPFM proliferation... // Lee VA (71.62.51.111)
Dec03 17:37 WIIS Key West moved from 107.1 to 106.9 about a year ago; so even when tropo can battle HD, now there is WIIS to deal with./cd (172.56.27.29)
Dec03 17:36 Mexico and Canada have not only joined the HD parade, but also Mexico is now on 400 kHz spacing like US, formerly 800./cd (172.56.27.29)
Dec03 17:34 106.7 here was our first HD, but was removed for many years; Habana R on 106.9 used to be by Cuba beacon. Sigh./cd (172.56.27.29)
Dec03 17:32 [15:48] WAFX is my record tropo to the north, Dec 2009 I think; 106.9 now covered in eye block./cd (172.56.27.29)
Dec03 17:31 Oh....to add to my other post below....if DXers were radio's "raison d'etre," IBOC wouldn't have ever been brought to the table. :)/cdEL96 (172.56.27.29)
Dec03 17:30 [17:13] Very true, cd. Not lost on me at all. //Lee VA (71.62.51.111)
Dec03 17:17 My wife IS NOT affected by this dxer. When we listen to radio in the car, she tunes to specific stations. NO tuning around. She wouldn't care if there was an FM translator carrying an AM station, so I just don't get it - de JimT/MO (69.71.4.159)
Dec03 17:14 [17:12] I did mention in WTFDA something similar. With radio used by fewer and fewer, it *does* seem like the ultimate paradox./cd (172.56.27.29)
Dec03 17:13 Just keep in mind that DXers are not "first dibs." If they were, all this would not have started. Just a hobby./cdEL96 (172.56.27.29)
Dec03 17:12 I'm just curious....with the internet/video games/general TV occupying the minds of the masses, who listens to AM or FM radio anymore? - de JimT/MO EM37 (69.71.4.159)
Dec03 15:50 Yep, I signed it ("the enemy of my enemy..." haha!) // Lee VA FM17io (71.62.51.111)

Dec03 15:48 Pretty funny…semi-local (65 miles) 100kW blowtorch 106.9 WAFX Suffolk, VA is taking up the fight against translator proliferation: // Lee VA FM17io (71.62.51.111)

Dec03 15:28 Thanks cd! I always seem to forget the 87s during Es. I did "wrap-around" (107.9-->87.5) while scanning yesterday, but didn't hear anything < 88. // Lee VA FM17io (71.62.51.111)
Dec03 02:40 Wish I had thought of that when things were hot and heavy./cd (172.56.37.117)
Dec03 02:39 To Lee/others, just a friendly reminder that if you are getting Caymans, Praise 87.9 oughta be a snap./cdEL96 (172.56.37.117)
