  • 92.3 FM KRRL 'Real' Los Angeles California via 2x-Es

    On July 14, 2021 at 1832 UTC I heard a station that I believe to be 92.3 KRRL 'Real' Hip-Hop
    from Los Angeles, California running 42 kW ERP.

    I did not hear any type of identification other than a 35 second advertising spot below and hearing
    hip-hop format music that was coming in for a short period ten minutes prior.

    If it is KRRL, then that would be 2x Es at 2396 miles from my location in Easton, Pennsylvania.
    (Reference orange line on map; Point A to B)

    Here is a 35-second audio file for Skrewball Whiskey company from San Diego, California.
    Peanut butter whiskey skrewball spirits

    There are no San Diego, California stations that operate on 92.3.

    The distance between San Diego to Los Angeles is about 100+ miles.

    The station was heard one hour and forty-seven minutes after Randy KW4RZ/7 in Goldfield,
    Nevada (DM17) heard 2x Es from 95.1 CKUE 'Cool FM' Chatham, Ontario, Canada at 1871 miles
    and 98.5 WNWN 'WIN 98-5' Coldwater, Michigan at 1724 miles.
    (Reference blue line on map; Point C to D, E)

    During the time Randy had those two stations coming in, the Maximum Usable Frequency
    was at 144 MHz on two 2x-Es clouds.

    The green diamond on the map between the parallel lines have the same distance (250 miles)
    continuously between them from start to end points.

    What I would like to know is, has anyone along the northeast region have 2x-Es to the
    southern California region on this day?

    The equipment used was a SDRplay RSPdx running SDRuno v1.41, Antennacraft Y-526 (Low-Band TV Yagi)
    on the roof of the shed aimed west (275 degrees); directly aimed towards Los Angeles.

    Any comments, questions are welcomed.

      Here is another positive point. At 2:21 pm EDT (1921 UTC) DXMAPS MUF Sp-E showed 106 MHz over central Kansas state, which is at the mid-point of the 2x-Es path.Click image for larger version  Name:	14-July-2021_MUF-106MHz_MAP.png Views:	0 Size:	286.8 KB ID:	92682

        I don't disagree with a potential path. I'm just not seeing anything local or regional or IDable in your clip...

          I think it would be a real stretch to count it as Los Angeles based on the material in that audio clip. There's really nothing specific. It's just a generic commercial. You'd have to get in touch with the station to see if they ran that spot at the exact time you heard them, or even if they are an advertiser. Without that knowledge all is just speculation and wishful thinking, unfortunately.

            Skrewball Whiskey is available in all 50 states and expanding into Canada. I'm afraid it's just as much speculation as counting a 93.7 or 94.5 with a Sam Adams Lager ad and thinking it was Boston. This one I believe will get away from you, and it could have been any other hip hop station on 92.3, including Killeen TX.
            Meanwhile, around 11:30 AM local time here, Matt Sittel in Omaha was picking up both KARY 100.9 'Cherry FM' (8.9KW) and KMGW 99.3 'Mega Hits' (790 watts) from the Yakima area. But that's not on the same path as this log.
