Oct18 22:07 wdbd (73.148.194.219)
Oct18 21:35 [20:15 additional] I seem to be line-of-sight to KDRK Spokane, and get traces of KPBX? 91.1. Haven't gotten 92.9/98.1/101.1 there yet. KDRK is equal strength to higher elevation 6 miles away but rest are weaker. - Rick SE WA (69.92.15.30)
Oct18 20:40 [20:15] No. When I visited my sister-in-law in March, I wondered about some translators. Terrain issues. Some stations that are virtual locals six miles from here are MIA here, like Moses Lake's 100.5 and Moscow ID's 90.3. Will that leave more freqs open for Es? I'll find out eventually. - Rick N6KCR SE WA (69.92.15.30)
Oct18 20:15 [1700] So you aren't able to get anything from Walla Walla or Tri-Cities at that site either? > Yakima CN96 (75.142.95.231)
Oct18 20:10 [18:52] George, this year two people in charge of websites I visit often (this and reelradio.com) passed away. Fortunately, both live on, thanks to successors who believe in their missions. Wish I'd had the expertise to step up, but I'm glad you have. - Rick SE WA (69.92.15.30)
Oct18 20:05 Thanks, Gary, that's helpful. Very unusual for October, but persistent high pressure and expected inversion have had me wondering about it. Mainly see this during summer heat waves or Dec./Jan. - Rick SE WA (69.92.15.30)
Oct18 18:52 Please read this page: http://dxworld.com/news-oct-2018.html George - K5TR (216.177.191.170)
Oct18 17:49 ...FYI Rick...Hepburn Tropo site shows some light enhancement for you and Yak Friday thru Sunday. not often I see that. Gary.... Boise DN13 (142.0.221.17)
Oct18 17:30 Tr 95.3 KPND Deer Park, WA Strong Scatter flare-ups. Pwr now 56kW, up from 9.8kW when last heard. 266 Miles Gary.... Boise DN13 (142.0.221.17)
Oct18 17:13 Ms 95.3 CKWD Calgary, AB "6-sec Burst w/ add for World of Spa's. A must for people in Calgary no doubt...100kW at 532 Miles Gary.... Boise DN13 (142.0.221.17)
Oct18 17:10 ...17:00 Yes, strong Ms here last hour...I'm monitoring 95.3 Gary.... Boise DN13 (142.0.221.17)
Oct18 17:07 ...05:03 Yes, something appears to have changed with KUJJ. They are now semi-local in Boise. before, barely in. Gary.... Boise DN13 (142.0.221.17)
Oct18 17:04 ...16:52 Absolutely, Thank you George! Gary.... Boise DN13 (142.0.221.17)
Oct18 17:00 [05:07] No, no McCall. I'm shielded from many distant signals here, except for Spokane's 91.1/93.7, which are much clearer in the Heights a few miles away. However, I am getting quick but lout Ms pings on 95.5. Much louder than I ever got from Seattle. But isn't this Oct/Nov shower known for brief bursts? - Rick SE WA (69.92.15.30)
Oct18 16:52 I hope everyone will have the same respect for George that they had for Bob. Thank you George! - de JimT/MO EM37 (174.234.157.146)
Oct18 16:51 ....Janet, wife of the late Bob Colyard, confirmed that to me in an email this past Sunday - de JimT/MO EM37 (174.234.157.146)
Oct18 16:50 I can safely say this now, DxWorld has a new owner now. K5TR George Fremin took over the reigns this week.... (174.234.157.146)
Oct18 07:12 [0507] Have you heard any fadeups from KUJJ McCall ID? They aren't too far from Lewiston but across Hell's Canyon and the mountains, so I don't know. Star 95.5 with soft rock. > Yakima CN96 (75.142.95.231)
Oct18 05:07 Been recording 95.5 since Monday. Some very intense pings, but nothing long enough to be helpful. Encouraging, though. - Rick SE WA (69.92.15.30)
Oct18 05:05 [23:15] Agreed, Gary. It's just the contrast between the couple of big guns and the rest of the flea power. One 25KW, otherwise extremes. - (69.92.15.30)
Oct17 23:15 ...2259 I would imagine a substantial cost savings electrically speaking with regard to a 500W vs. a 50kW, especially with a limited target audience Rick Gary.... Boise DN13 (142.0.221.17)
Oct17 22:59 Odd thing about the Lewiston ID/Clarkston WA area: most facilities are translators or fully licensed facilities at 500 Watts or under. Obviously owners feel they can cover the area with little power and transmitters near town. But we do have a 25K, 99K and 100K, whether all that power is needed or not. - Rick SE WA (69.92.15.30)
Oct17 01:54 I have never heard KCLB, even on the west side of the state where 93.7 was relatively open (pre-KLSY of course). > Yakima CN96 (97.90.89.33)
Oct17 01:54 [1926] That's the normal one here...when the KDYK translator is off the air. > Yakima CN96 (97.90.89.33)
Oct16 21:50 ...(19:51) 95.5 is a Ms favorite here...Any day now I could lose 93.7 so hence, recording as much as I can.... Gary.... Boise DN13 (142.0.220.254)
Oct16 19:51 Nice catches, Gary. I'm going to lose 95.5 soon, so recording to see if I can log any Ms before that freq succumbs to AM revitalization. Haven't heard anything when monitoring live, but hopeful I'll capture something. - Rick SE WA (69.92.15.30)
Oct16 19:26 Tr 93.7 KQFM Hermiston, OR "93.7 The Q" 5.3kW at 206 Miles...New Gary.... Boise DN13 (142.0.220.254)
Oct16 19:07 Ms 93.7 KCLB Coachella,Ca " 93.7 KCLB " ID on a 3-Sec Burn.....Lucky timing...New 26.5kW at 591 Miles Gary.... Boise DN13 (142.0.220.254)

Oct15 05:02 Tr BlabTV-DT-48 Pensacola FL (234 mi) (new) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blab_Television - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (68.11.225.119)
Oct15 03:41 Based on listeners, there is probably one listener per station. That new one is for you, Rick!!! ... Mike (73.252.142.49)
Oct15 02:02 AM Revitalization has hit WA/ID's Lewis And Clark Valley. One freq lost Fri., another vanishing soon. Fortunately we have only three AM stations. - Rick SE WA (69.92.15.30)
