From Utica, Mi,
KEB98 162.550 Buffalo, New York
KIG63 162..550 Grand Rapids, Michigan (No longer exist) Now It’s WZ2560 In Cannonsburg still on 162.550.
KHB97 162.400 Bellevue, Ohio

I have heard many tropo openings where most of the NOAA channels were occupied by signals from around MI, OH and ON. Never thought to log the times and callsigns though :(

I can't believe the NOAA station at 162.55 is still out of service in the NYC area.
