  • 4/20 Tropo

    A nice bit of tropo Wednesday morning here in Poughkeepsie, NY, the first real DX conditions this year, and one new log.

    First caught WBOC DT-21 around 9am, w/ CBS on 16.1 and FOX on the subchannel they call 21.2. (244 miles)

    Then WVIR DT-32 Charlottesville, VA popped in briefly for DTV LOG #190 at 358 miles. The "LoanMax" (WVIR) screenshot posted here might be WVIR 29.3 CW. It was from a VHS tape, and shortly after this was recorded I noticed the converter showed "29.3" instead of "29.1".

    A bit later after 10am, WUND DT-20 from Edenton, NC faded up (427 miles). It was almost exactly 2 years ago I first logged this one, which was my first DTV DX... that was a great way to start and what got me hooked.

    Good work, Chris.

    It seems like just yesterday you said you weren't getting any DX...

    ...but today is different story. :-)

    Nice to see WBOC again. It was one of the regulars, when I was DXing from the Trenton, N.J. area, 20+ years ago.

        Nice catches...

        Looks like there is some strong tropo forecasted up the east coast these next few days. Should be a good time to log stuff for people near the coast.
