April 2017 Tropos

The technical side of broadcasting. Think IBOC is a sham? Talk about it here! How about HDTV? Post DX reports here as well.

WEYI is now coming in solidly, just as I had thought...

Nothing else from the north yet other than that and WCMZ...
For three days in January 2017 (15th, 16th, 19th), I managed to receive KDKA Pittsburgh from 202 miles away indoors!

I've been able to make out pictures on CKCO behind all the snow since 2015...

Anyways, WEWS reappeared tonight as did WTOL.

My TV doesn't show static and requires a strong signal to show anything on analog

Got WLAJ, I also managed to get WTVG. By the way, I moved my TV and antenna to another room in the house with a north facing window, that way I'd be more likely to get CKCO

WTOL was coming in solidly for a while and WEWS popped up for a few fast seconds.

Somehow, for some oddball reason, sometimes I'm able to get WTVG by holding the curtains of my home's front window. I'm not kidding either.
