A great explanation of "Tropo"

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

There is a lot of comments and work reported on here about tropo openings. I recently had someone ask me to explain it, and I poked around and found this really good explanation:

Have been working some good distances on tropo openings, since I got on VHF back in 1962, on the 6 M band and in 1978 on the 2 M band.
Started listening to FMBC DX with a 3 tube Granco tuner and a twinlead dipole taped to my wall, in 1960 :D

I had a station called The River stop my scan in Flint on 96.7 the other day... it was in Minnesota, coming in like I was looking at the tower! I noticed it making a short grocery run, and it was still booming in when I drove home.
