  • June 11 2012 Calgary, AB received in Kingsport, TN. (CKUA-93.7)

    (Originally a "Sticky" post from the old WTFDA Forums)

    Around mid-day on June 11, 2012 I was listening to the tail end of a Sporadic E (Es) opening on the FM dial.

    KIZZ-93.7 FM (Z-94) from Minot, North Dakota had just faded out and then, about a minute later station CKUA from Calgary, Alberta rose up briefly from the static.

    This is a "double-hop" Es reception of CKUA at 1849 miles. Have a listen to the attached mp3 file:

    CKUA-93.7 from Kingsport, TN. 11 June 2012.mp3:
    00:12 "....Edmonton's government house today and tomorrow...."
    00:20 "....the 2012 Global Petroleum Show in Calgary....."
    00:23 "....that's been an update from the CKUA newsroom, I'm Matt Nodge."
    00:32 "....CKUA radio network across Alberta and around the world on the internet..."

    Equipment used was a Carver TX-11 receiver and a standard Radio Shack TV/FM directional outdoor antenna.

    I contacted the station by email and sent them the mp3 recording. They sent back a QSL card to verify my reception. See smaller pics within the larger map pic.
