  • Rare and Extreme MUF into the NOAA Weather Radio Band

    This information is two weeks old, but I have not seen it mentioned anywhere other than on the WTFDA Facebook website.
    .
    I feel this rare sporadic-E event needs to be seen by a wider audience due to the fact that we are at rock bottom of Solar Cycle 24, and transitioning into phase 25.

    On Saturday, July 20 between 1419 - 1506 local ET, William Hepburn from (Grimsby, Ontario, Canada) had over forty-five minutes of extreme Es up to the
    VHF-Hi Weather Radio band at 162 MHz!

    This gave him eight new log entries with distances ranging from 839 to 1,253 miles.

    1. 1419 162.500 WWG-54 AR Yellville 839
    2. 1426 162.525 WXK-87 OK Clinton 1,158
    3. 1435 162.425 WNG-555 KS Meade 1,168
    4. 1441 162.525 WNG-534 KS Belvidere 1,094
    5. 1444 162.450 WXN-81 KS Ulysses 1,214
    6. 1456 162.500 WWH-22 KS Beaumont 971
    7. 1459 162.500 KPS-511 KS Great Bend 1,053
    8. 1506 162.525 KWN-60 CO Lamar 1,253

    I like to log at least one 162 MHz WX-BC via Es before the Es season ends this month.
