  • FM Bandscan - Kooskia, ID (10 August 2021)

    A couple weeks ago, I went on vacation to Boise to visit family. But rather than going through Tri Cities and catching I-84, I took a long route - I went south/east toward Lewiston, east to Missoula, south to Challis, then to Stanley, Ketchum, Mountain Home (via US-20) and finally to Boise. After a few days in Boise, I took the typical I-84 to I-82/US-395 route back home.

    Along my route, I recorded numerous bandscans (including three TV scans) - some of them at high elevation passes/summits. I did manage to divert off the main route and temporarily cross the Continental Divide - I did record a bandscan on the divide trail.

    The two bandscans were done at Lewiston and Orofino, although I'm not creating a post here for either because they weren't very significant. I was in Lewiston on August 12 of last year, and the only change made was the addition of a 95.5 translator in Lewiston. Orofino just didn't have that many stations, let alone anything significant.

    This is the third bandscan of the trip - recorded along US-12 just north of Kooskia, ID. This location doesn't seem favourable for DX, but I ended up receiving some pretty good tropo, including one across the divide.
