    Yes, I can watch and listen to the DTV stations which are being received at the remote DX site on my computer at home or anywhere. The internet link between the remote site and a log in site to watch it is through TeamViewer. TeamViewer allows me to see the computer screen at the remote site and to control it. Once a DTV station is received and fully decoded, you can click the "View" icon on the HDHomeRun screen, as you can see in the attached pic, to bring up the video along with audio. It does require a computer and internet connection fast enough to handle the extra load to make it work. WTFDA member Mike G. is the man with the expertise who set up the equipment at the remote site to make all of this work. Mike and I are currently starting to gather the equipment needed to set up another remote controlled DTV DX site in Payson, IL, near Quincy, IL & Hannibal, MO.

    Some tropo conditions to the WNW of the Milford, IL remote DX site led to two new DTV logs this morning. The log total is now 577.

    KFPX "ION" 39/39, Newton, IA @ 302 miles.
    KCYM-LD 45/45, Des Moines, IA @ 302 miles.

    Lots of tropo enhanced signals from the southwest and west into the Milford, IL remote site this morning. The best distance was 570 miles with KWCH 19/12, Hutchinson, KS. From the west KPTM 43/42, Omaha, NE @ 451 miles was the best distance. While receiving Kansas City DTVs one new station was captured: KNPG-LD 16/21, St. Joseph, MO @ 386 miles.

    A good day of Es on Sunday, 6/25, led to a new low power DTV for the log book: WRUF-LD 5/10, Gainesville, FL @ 810 miles from the Milford, IL remote DX site. The station's ERP is .3 kW. It was quite weak when received and got strong enough two quick times to trigger PSIP but no video.

    WRUF-LD was hard to get when I was sitting in Gainesville looking for it. Of course it's picked up in Milford.

    Did you guys lose your power/computer at Milford? Haven't seen any data since 5:13pm Thursday evening. Hope it's a simple fix!

    I'm really not sure what's going on at the moment. The scanning programs Ascan keep stalling and now the connection route through TeamViewer is not "playing nicely." It keeps telling me I'm signed in when I'm not. Thunderstorms through the area may be responsible. I know the satellite internet service has been off and on several times since yesterday afternoon. "Please stand by."
