  • NOAA Weather Radio PA - MA via Tropo

    Wednesday, August 28, 2019

    During the late 1200 and early 1300 UTC hour, Massachusetts stations were being heard via tropo propagation. Coastal tropo from the VHF Propagation Map website
    showed red (750km/466 miles and up) paths.

    Around 1250 UTC, the signals were getting scratchy, breaking apart but then rebounded to fair~good signal strength level.

    Tropo is rare here due to multiple high hills. The closest coastal shore from us would be Raritan Bay that divides NJ and NY boundary fifty miles to the east.

    1. Boston KHB35 162.475 245 miles Northeast
    2. Gloucester WNG574 162.425 270 miles Northeast
    3. Worchester WXL93 162.550 210 miles Northeast

    NOAA Weather Radio PA - MA Via Tropo

    My wife and I were on an Alaskan cruise last week. I brought a radio on the trip. It is so unusual to scan 162.400 to 162.550 Mhz and hear NOTHING!

    Where I live in Minnesota, when you scan 162.400 to 162.550 Mhz, you are likely to get at least some signal on one of them almost anywhere, if you are standing outside.

      Was the cruise along the southeastern coast near Juneau or south-central near Seward? What town were you near when you started to monitor?
