    Good stuff!

    All I could squeeze out of the morning tropo was WXVT 15 Greenville, MS. 250 mi. at 12:28 a.m. local, and then the band went flat. :-(

        Wow! tvguy, that is really superb DX! It looks like Houston is about 825 miles from Lakeland, and Corpus Christi about 955 mi! I can't even dream of distances like that here in the Northeast.... gee 955 miles would be at about Minneapolis, Memphis, or Orlando from here. No way! I am envious of all the DX you guys get in the Gulf area or lower Mississippi Valley, where 400 miles is routine, and 600 miles is not very rare. For me here, 400 miles is a big deal, and I've never logged DTV at 600 miles. It seems the water path helps a lot, and from here in Poughkeepsie no US TV station is over a mostly water path from here. East Coast of Florida is over a partial waterpath, but that path also includes about 600 miles land from the Wilmington, NC area northward. And Florida is too far anyway.

        Meanwhile DX has been nil here so far this year, no DTV decoded yet over approx 140 miles (Philadelphia, Boston, and Syracuse). Our tropo season here tends to be mid-August through mid-October. It's great reading about your catches!

          Don't throw in the towel, just yet, Chris. If you look at Danny's DTV DX Records page...

          http://www.tvdxexpo.com/dtvdxrecords.html

          ...you'll see there's more than one Northeasterner on there.

          You just have to stay after it and, eventually, you'll get there. I run the DTV box, 24/7, when it isn't storming (it's storming waaay too much here, lately) and I've logged more than a few good ones by letting "the box" DX while I wasn't around.

            Great DX, Tvguy. You certainly receive very long-haul tropo.
