What can I say - 34 FM logs from MO, alone. two from KS. Five from AR. One from across the AR state line in OK. Knocking most of my worst pests out, like 105.9 in Orillia and 88.5 in Newmarket - these are very rarely beat, except by very strong Es openings. 20 new to the logbook. 83 from eight states (MO, AR, IL, OK, KS, WI, IN, IA) that are beyond those I can get on local groundwave (NY, OH, MI, PA). KZBB 97.9 in Poteau OK is roughly 1064 miles - a new distance record for me, beating 1044 miles (KHPE 104.9 Hope AR, from Snowball near Toronto). Most of these heard using a sangean ATRS 909 portable, with its whip, while standing on an upper deck. I taped one channel at a time on my more regular set-up, a Pioneer SuperTuner 3D car radio built into a wood box that's hooked to a dipole (aka Pleskowicz). (I was standing on the deck because my back has been out, and I can't sit comfortably for more than an hour, but the deck and portable have previously proven good for nulling stuff here). Here's the list...

I'm posting a handful of taped clips below...
