  • FM Bandscan - Lolo Pass, MT / 5,279 feet (10 August 2021)

    Boise Road Trip 2021: We left off in Kooskia, ID where I had some great tropo catches. Check out my post here: https://forums.wtfda.org/forum/wtfda...10-august-2021

    Continuing along US-12 from Kooskia, about an hour and a half later, we have reached the summit of Lolo Pass, on the boundary of Idaho and Montana, Pacific and Mountain Time Zones. Elevation here is 5,279 feet, about 550 feet higher than I-90 at Lookout Pass, which I've done two bandscans at previously.

    Compared to Lookout, Lolo is closer to Missoula and further from the Washington state line, and further from Spokane. This position makes both Spokane and Tri Cities logs all the more juicy. I started this bandscan off just casually scanning through the frequencies, until I see "VCY America" radiotext displayed on 90.1. I thought it was some religious in Montana (anyone who has been to Montana knows that religious stations are everywhere across the state), but I look closer at my screen and I see "KOLU" displayed. I check to see if it's an RDS error, and it turns out I was actually receiving KOLU. Then I remembered that KOLU does air VCY programming around this time of day. Long story short, it turned out not to be the only Tri Cities station received. A few more came in during my visit.

    That's all for the background story - stay tuned to this forum for more! Buckle up as we enter unfamiliar territory for DXers. The next featured bandscan is on the Continental Divide and has both tropo and meteor scatter.

    I have yet to release the Lolo Pass bandscan video to the public, but I've decided to un-list it for you guys to check it out at any time instead of tomorrow when it's released.
