Nasty Tropospheric Ducting today

Post by Deleted User 1225 » Wed May 23, 2018 7:08 pm

Lots of stations getting beat up bad today in the northern Lower and the Straits. MacFM 106.3 getting wonked by the country 106.3 out of Escanaba. The WCBY translator on 100.7 is getting beat up by a someone playing rap or hip-hop (quite the juxtaposition from classic country :eek ).

The radio in my truck stopped on seek/scan on almost every frequency a few minutes ago.

DX anyone?

I actually got up early in the morning to get in on this tropo in TC. Picked up a lot of Chicago stations. 92.5 WFDX was getting hammered by WLAW in Newaygo over here, don't know if I'm surprised or not! And I'm pretty sure the rap station interfering with Big Country is V100.7 from Milwaukee.


WSRT 106.7 - You may have reached "The Peak", but you still struggle to climb the mountain of success.

Furthest FM Tropo Catch:
KEZO-FM 92.3 Omaha, NE
Recieved on 7/8/2018, 570.16 miles from Long Lake Township, MI

Could also be WOBE from Crystal Falls/Iron Mountain, or maybe even Glow 100 from Manitoulin Island.

Wish I was up north to join in on the fun! In Manistee, some of the Milwaukee stations (99.1 and 100.7 particularly) can get very strong at times

I thought I heard a Crystal Falls area reference earlier.

My scan landed on WGRD while driving a block away from WTCM's tower.

You may have heard V100.7 from Racine/Milwaukee.


Radio's downfall has been under-investing in its core competency and becoming distracted by delusions of grandeur by thinking development of a half-assed national digital strategy will somehow put it on par with the Facebooks and Googles of the world.
