July 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.

Finally starting to get more interesting a little bit...had WEYI coming in for a few minutes this morning. Almost had WNEM show up at the same time too.
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!

Very active FM band right now - both strong dx AND e-skip. About 5 minutes ago the e-skip came blasting in out of nowhere - mainly South Carolina towards Florida. Also getting strong dx from south of here - both east into Canada and into the southwest part of Michigan.

And an active TV band today right now as well. WTOL has been coming in for the past minute or so and WEWS was coming in for a while as recent as 15 minutes ago.

Very active is an understatement...
