    Comments: Bang up opening to the Northeast and the first time I heard Central NY State

    The long Island Casino ad and the Yankee game on 104.5 had me stumped at first. There is no full powered 104.5 on Long Island that carries the Yankees. So I looked up the Yankees MLB Affiliate list and WTMM from Schenectady is the only one that fits. But why are they running an ad for a Casino on Long Island NY up Schenectady? Unless it's run on the whole
    Yankees Network to attract people from out of the area to visit.

    Locally the MUF did not reach the top of the band although DX maps showed the MUF reaching 156 Mhz. It will be interesting to see who got in on this opening.

    This might turn out to be my best year for FM E-Skip

    The skip intensified to 156 Mhz

    I am in northeast Ohio, and while I was monitoring that direction, the only noted Es from the opening was 89.1 WBUH Brewster MA @ 602 miles. And that's at the very tip of the Cape of MA. That high MUF was too close for me to do anything with it.

      The season isn't over yet, I think we'll get another opportunity or two for FM DX. I suspect those who were south and west of me really cleaned up yesterday because the MUF was well past into FM at 8:45 Eastern last night.
