  • Updating The TV DX Expo

    It has been four years since I uploaded new photographs of *my* own TV DX to the Internet. My first priority is to make some new DTV pages. Three new DTV pages have been completed, but I'm still fine-tuning them. I'll make them public in the weeks to come.

    In the meantime, a Philadelphia DX Story photo feature has been added to the home page:

    Let me know if you run across spelling errors, etc.

    That Philadelphia DX story is pretty cool. It shows that Es for TV will be just as good in the digital age, granted that stations stay on VHF. Many went to UHF, but the few that are there will make the VHF airwaves cleaner for DXing. This is basically a side by side comparison of the same DX on analog then digital.

      Thank you, spunker88.

      DTVs are DXable by Es. Unfortunately, it takes a lot more patience to work with an on-off-on-off signal that doesn't generally hang around very long. Yet, I plan to take advantage of the low-band channels as long as they are open to DX.

        That is awesome. I don't know how I missed hearing about this earlier.

        I thought it was neat to catch KSNB-4 in digital less than three weeks after I saw it in analog, and to see a strong opening on transition day.

        But to have the perfect coincidence of a low-band station doing a flash-cut and an Es opening to the station at the same time, unbelievable!

          Makes many forever-glad that they delayed the transition from Feb 17th, doesn't it

              As you guys know, all I did was take advantage of the situation. I simply ran a VCR on channel 6 and another VCR for the DTT-901 signal. In spite of how much less I like DTV DXing than ATV DXing, I always work whatever kind of TV DX comes my way.

                Yeah i know what your saying. At least with analog you can detect and tune in a very low signal where with digital your basically going by the signal meter.
