    One new log last night, log #159... 34/18 WHTV Jackson, MI @ 145 miles from my mobile DX spot. It was strong enough to overpower my local WQHS 34/61 which is only 17 miles away from this spot.

    Some real good tropo in your area last night. Congrats on the new catch. Your mobile site really performs... maybe you should pitch a tent and spend the nights. There was tropo enhancement here, but quite unstable and not all that strong. Nothing interesting noted.

    Chris that MXV-5100 seems to be doing well here. I'm sure you'll do well with it too. I noticed a sub-decode on channel 5, which was WLMB, but it never decoded. That's the first time I ever noticed any DTV tropo on low-VHF before.

    Detroit UHFs were stronger than I'd ever seen before. Signals were maxed out, and WXYZ was overpowering WKBN (both RF channel 41), which is normally 100% signal when I aim toward Youngstown. Here are some photos of the DX received at home (not mobile)...

    Nice screenshots, Andrew, and nice DX, especially considering the insanely high RF levels and lack of elevation where you are. It would be nice if some of that midwest tropo would pay a visit here. By the way, I hope to get my MXV-5100 antenna up and running in the next week or so.

    Nice catches and screenshots.

    At about the same time you logged CITS-2 and WEMW I myself received two new logs, one of them was one of your near-locals.

    There is some good tropo here this morning. Today's logs...

    19/11 WVAH Huntington, WV (184 miles)
    33/24 WNPB Morgantown, WV (135 miles)
    33/2 WGRZ Buffalo, NY (194 miles)
    38/7 WKBW Buffalo, NY (188 miles)
    39/7 WIVB Buffalo, NY (189 miles)
    46/6 WVVA Bluefield, WV (263 miles)

    Pittsburgh DTVs were also in @ around 95 miles, but those are very common here. I'm pretty certain I had 18/7 WDBJ Roanoke, VA in a sub-decode... I suppose the tropo will just need to be stronger. I need a good screenshot of that one.

    Last night, there was some decent tropo here in northeast Ohio. I managed one new log.

    Also, recently a channel clogger began broadcasting from downtown Cleveland on RF 21. It's owned by DTV America. I can't see any signal from it at my home, so I drove to a location 10 miles away to add it to my logs. It's log #162...

    There was some decent tropo this morning toward the Pittsburgh and Altoona areas. I didn't see anything new, but I did manage to finally get a screenshot (PSIP only) of WQVC-CD 46 from Greensburg PA @ 108 miles. Previously, it was only captured by my RabbitEars autologger. WQVC is only about 600 watts. I also logged WTAJ 32, WPCW-LD 27, and lots of signals from Pittsburgh.
