    I wonder what the HAAT is on the 47 & 58 watt stations, given their distance from your QTH, at the time. Unless that was really selective enhanced tropo!

    I wouldn't necessarily even call it enhanced tropo. It was merely ordinary conditions over water there. The band there is virtually empty - three miles down the road, it was, in fact, completely empty without a single station to be heard. It just goes to show what sort of stuff you can hear when there is open water are no local stations. You could say it was because I was atop a 1,200 foot mountain right beside the water, but I was getting most of the same signals 15 miles down the road at sea level as well, including the low-powered ones. (Heard the 103.7 Gloucester translator at Acadia also, by the way).

    As for the HAAT, 97.3 is 255.8 meters and 97.9 is 181 meters. Both are relays of 94.5 Gaspe, among others. All loud and clear signals with IDs.
