October 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.

October 2017 Tropos

Post by mtburb » Mon Oct 02, 2017 2:37 pm

To start things off...on my end, in a slightly unusual late-season event, WNEM and WEYI were showing up for a while this morning.
For three days in January 2017 (15th, 16th, 19th) and one night in September 2017 (22nd), I managed to receive KDKA Pittsburgh from 202 miles away indoors!

Last night I had WLNS and WADL decode briefly (with no picture), along with WUPW and WEWS coming in at times. Also had CKCO-TV-3 analog in steady (snowy picture, but good audio)

You received WOOD-TV over Fox 2 in Windsor? Both broadcast on RF channel 7. That's quite remarkable!!!
C'mon iHeartRadio - do the RIGHT thing for once! Please cancel "Rover's Morning Glory" from WBFX in Grand Rapids.

WOTV 41 (virtual) broadcasts on RF 20. I don’t recall cross-promotion on WOOD, but ya never know.

Had WTVG come in briefly several times over the past couple hours so far today...

From Wyandotte, I'd expect WTVG and WTOL to be in pretty solid every day.
