Apr25 08:39 Josh, Hepburn Tropo Forecast Map shows there will be some weak to fair Tropo in your location from Illinois, Indiana to your northeast to my location in Louisiana down along the northern Gulf Coast this morning peaking around 9 am CDT - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (
Apr25 08:27 [8:07] Yeah, I can pick it up most of the time. It's 142 miles from here. - Josh EM36ui (
Apr25 08:07 Josh in Arkansas, 97.5 in Hot Springs AR is a Arkansas Tropo beacon for me here. If there is weak Tropo starting build up into Arkansas 97.5 KQUS always is the first station to show up here via Tropo. Josh, you should be able to receive 97.5 KQUS right ? - amfmtvdtvb4rla EM40 (
Apr25 04:57 I remember they were off all summer in 2012 and I was able to get KACV Amarillo via Es while they were off. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr25 04:56 This shows them silent on 4/13. Hmmmm....could 89.9 be open for Es, at least for some of May? > Yakima CN96 (
Apr25 04:51 Rick: The person who runs KASB is Brad Conger. You can find his email on the Bellevue HS website. Maybe they closed down due to lack of students or due to interference complaints from KXIR? (Which wouldn't seem likely.) > Yakima CN96 (
Apr25 02:21 [22:40] 94.7 KSHE is 564 miles from my location. I caught their signal in late spring around Sunset. May have been a very narrow Tropo Duct opening. Nothing else was coming in via Tropo or Es on the FM Band at the time. Their signal was in here for about 45 min barley audible then gone - amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (
Apr25 00:22 89.9 KASB Bellevue WA is still off--and I wonder if they're done altogether. Their online feed is gone, and their Twitter account appears to have been closed. (@kasbfm) (
Apr24 23:28 Just wanted to let everybody know that KTRI 95.9 Mansfield, MO is back on the air broadcasting Spirit FM. I caught their TOH ID in my morning recordings. - Josh EM36ui (
Apr24 22:40 [22:25] I can hear them most of the time. KTTS can pose a bit of a challenge, but even the slightest bit of enhancement to the northeast brings them in. KSHE is 188 miles away from my house. How far is KSHE from you? That has to be close to 600 miles. Quite good considering there's no water path involved. - Josh EM36ui (
Apr24 22:25 Josh in Arkansas, can you receive 94.7 KSHE from Crestwood Mo? I have only received their signal barley audible once here amfmtvdtvbrla EM40 (
Apr24 16:13 I guess those wouldn't be six meters on the APRS map...frequencies are 144 MHz - de JimT/MO EM37 (
Apr24 16:08 Hey, six meter echoes on the tropo map central CO>eastern Oklahoma, Es??? DxMaps has 6m activity central & eastern states - de JimT/MO EM37 (
Apr24 15:04 Guys I had a skip dream last night. That means it's coming. En35 back in en35 (
Apr24 00:02 *receiver - KRMW later came back on the air - Kegan EM26 (
Apr23 23:59 I could hear the spur most on 94.86 - not a much on 94.90 - Tuning steps on Grundig S450DLX reveiver - Kegan EM26 (
Apr23 22:55 If you can get around that spur, I'd think KHKN Maumelle, AR and KCMO should be fairly easy catches. - Josh EM36ui (
Apr23 22:35 Turns out to be a spur from local station KUAF, Fayetteville, AR with NPR - Kegan EM26 (
Apr23 22:29 Antenna is SSE - Kegan EM26 (
Apr23 22:28 Local on 94.9 (KRMW, Cedarville,AR) off the air at this time - hearing another station with NPR - Antenna SEE - Kegan EM26 (
Apr23 22:04 Tr 98.7 WNNS Springfield, IL (268 miles) fighting with KWTO Springfield, MO. Saint Louis locals a bit stronger than usual as well. - Josh EM36ui (
Apr23 19:32 KHTR had no HD when I was out there. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (
Apr23 19:32 Maybe if I still get an SDR and a directional antenna I may be able to play around and phase those down a little bit. The same crap has happened to 103.5 since KZTR-LP signed on. I can only find a couple of tiny nulls that bring in KWHT. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr23 19:30 Yes, here in Yakima 99.7 KHHK is HD just to put analog HD2/3/4 translators on the dial. They are on 104.5, 106.1 and 106.9. Never been able to null them out. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr23 19:29 Looks like 97.7 KZBG and 104.3 KHTR are HD. So 97.5/97.9, 104.1/104.5 are IBOC hash out there. Far less than Seattle's dial! Like I said earlier, you may get some Es that I cannot receive. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr23 19:28 The 97.7 KZBG Lapwai ID has an HD with 4 channels, seemingly the means to get 3 translators. Otherwise no HD. 90.5 is listed with HD bt none found - Rick N6KCR Seattle (
Apr23 19:25 [17:12] Spent 4 days there in March. Yes, lots on noncom band but no HD heard there. My best Es noncom freqs (91.1/91.5) open. The (alomst) lack of HD will really help. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (
Apr23 18:13 FCC proposing to address (read: "relax requirements around") translator interference #sigh #ihearttranslators // Lee VA (
Apr23 17:12 The interesting thing about this location is that you'll have a chance at Milwaukee, Green Bay and Dallas on long single-hop Es (1400-1450mi). Can't do that here! > Yakima CN96 (
Apr23 17:11 Non-comm band: 88.5 has a semi-local 15 miles away that is deep into '2Edge' on FMFool and probably weak; KRLF at 400w. 90.1 and 90.9 seem OK for DX as well. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr23 17:09 [0334] Just checked FMFool for Clarkston. You'll have a nice open area between 95.1-96.1, the non-comm band is pretty full out there however. 92.5-93.3 is completely open as is the entire 107 mhz part of the dial. You may have to do some nulling or phasing on some channels since there are several translators in Lewiston, but you should have way more Es there. > Yakima CN96 (
Apr23 16:30 Some good seasons didn't get into gear till June but also had good Julys and Augusts. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (
Apr23 16:29 [16:05] Yes, fair for below 50 mHz, esp. in southern locations. (1994 was much earlier.) FM varies. In Cal I did have Es on FM as early as April 17 with more in late April, but more commonly starting in early May. - Rick N6KCR Seattle (
Apr23 16:06 I figure with today being a normal work day the FCC should be able to fix their problem, then I can take the file down. Bob-Nj Fn20 (
Apr23 16:05 Does that sound like a fair assessment? I do notice six meters beginning to get more active now - JimT/MO EM37 (
Apr23 16:04 [13:15] KA3JAW, sorry, you are right, I rushed it out and labeled it wrong, Dumb! It was Art, KA5DWI that sent it too me. Bob-Nj Fn20 (
Apr23 16:04 Although their is no *official* start date to the Es season, the general consensus among hams I know say it starts to kick in around April 22-23 - de JimT/MO EM37 (
Apr23 15:48 thanks for an FM list. Was hoping it would mention if a station is in HD? Can some1 please post a TV list? Thanks in advance from Sherman Oaks (
Apr23 14:16 No Ms pings except for one I will need to email or call the station I think I heard (from SC on 89.1)./cdEL96 (
Apr23 14:15 Was listening to "controversias" on Mayabeque 104.7 on Eton 550 barefoot while recording on the Kaito 1102./cdEL96 (
