    Wink Hart, Michigan Video Bandscan

    HART REST AREA / US-31, SHELBY, MICHIGAN VIDEO BANDSCAN
    September 28, 2014 2230 - 2330 PM / 52-58°F
    Location: 43°39'04.70"N 86°23'49.64"W (900 ft.)
    Hart: 3 mi ne, Shelby: 3 mi se, on Port Huron Moraine
    323 ft. above Lk Michigan, 6.5 mi e of Silver Lk Dunes

    I've never bothered with taking a video bandscan before, let alone narrating it, but here is a bandscan from September 28th at my Hart Rest Area site taken on the way home from the beach. It's a quiet place. I can listen in the car all I want and have bathrooms nearby and virtually nobody to disturb me. The scan is in four parts. All of the stations are pretty much normal at this location. Nothing stands out at all aside from some additional IBOC interfering with big signals like 103.7 (vs. 103.5 IBOC in this video).

    Since I was speaking off the top of my head as I commented, there are some mistakes - a few misidentified stations (all stations were IDed before or after the videos, so while the narration may be wrong, the text lists are correct), translator power, etc. They are corrected in the notes with each segment.

    This is the bandscan at the Hart Rest Area (43°39'04.70"N 86°23'49.64"W), which lies on the Port Huron Moraine with direct uninterrupted line of site to Wisconsin, Illinois, and Indiana. Stations heard in the videos are listed below with narration in the clip, though the list doesn't include all stations heard at the time (due to the videos being taken only aiming in one direction), which are in the main bandscan list to be compiled at a later date.

    * = Station received on seek.

    *91.7 WMCQ MI Muskegon (34 mi.)
    91.9 WJCH IL Joliet (182 mi.)

    Note: Correction about 88.9 - the station gets out about 5 miles before Grand Rapids wastes it away, though I had wanted to say instead that its RDS only reaches about 1 mile.

    96.1 W241AG WI Sheboygan (67 mi.) +IBOC
    *96.3 WBBM IL Chicago (138 mi.)

    Note: the 92.9 behind Cadillac was misidentified as Chilton (a very common station just to the north) in the video, but it was instead South Bend.
    - "Power FM" is, of course, "Power 92". Talking to cameras make me nervous.
    - 94.7 was suffering due to WLS Chicago interference.

    Note: 103.3 is 55 watts and 104.1 is 38 watts. The 8-watt station was mistaken to be 100.5 (misread at the time as 8 instead of 80, though it's actually 150 watts), received on seek earlier in Ludington (I often confuse the power of all of these). 90.1 is indeed Green Bay, not Sturgeon Bay (that's 90.5).

    Nice, I'm probably going to do one of those but I can't link it to my YouTube cause my friends change titles of my vids and upload other

    Also this weekend I'm going to be in Neilsville and cant wait to see the *2,000ft* WEAU/WAXX Tower wonder if the ridge my hotel is on will help.

    Yeah, I don't bother with YouTube because nobody would watch such videos. Almost nobody will watch these and I know that in advance. My first bandscan aiming in the opposite direction included WJVL on 99.9, but I scrapped that video because conditions aiming in the opposite direction - oddly enough - were far better. It's really a great DX site. Since I got my newer car with the back window antenna instead of the whip antenna my old one had, my DXing at home has severely suffered. It suffers around town as well because most streets are north-south and east-west while most of my target stations are from the southwest and northwest. I can go to the Wal-Mart parking lot (highest place around too, actually) with their diagonal parking spots, but all in all, conditions at the rest area are just spectacular on any day. Because the highway doesn't have many long-distance travellers (this is, after all, a peninsula - unless you're going to northern Canada, you don't just happen to pass through), so the rest area isn't commonly used. Typically one car per hour comes through there and usually every other car just keeps driving and doesn't bother stopping. Diagonal parking, free spots, truck parking that lets me spin my car around, and line of sight for a good 150 miles... perfect! For times like these where lake-level inversions are poor and elevated inversions seem to be holding in all the signals, this is the place to go.

    WAXX is in Eau Claire? I can't find WEAU in any database though. Towers just don't do it for me. Driving by the 90.3 WBLV tower near my place is like "eh... whatever."

    Were WGHN and WEZI interfering with each other, or were they in opposite directions? Were they received separate times?

    Kegan, you can see it (somewhat) in video #2. Usually they're all in at the same time, whether it's WGHN, WEZY, or WLTU, but sometimes one is in strong in one direction then another strong in another direction. It's really a toss-up, just like 99.9. You never know when it's gonna be Benton Harbor or when it's gonna be Park Forest. They're almost in the same direction.

    Regarding video #2... If there was a nickel for every time a good-timed station tune in happened.

    No kidding. I had a few of those in my other bandscan video set I did just before that facing the opposite way. I tossed those videos though. I'm thinking of a monthly outing to that DX site of mine since the first one was the last Sunday in August and the second was the last Sunday in September... so I'm thinking the last Sunday of this month. It's really a fun site. Line of sight to central Iowa (350 miles) and eastern Missouri (450 miles) before any terrain is higher than the 900 feet of my site (not as lucky into Wisconsin, but the inversions over the lake nullify any terrain barriers).
