    Comments : The majority of these are new. This is a testament to how well the Goozeezoo branded TEF 6866 Radio performed. There is no way I would have received all these stations with just the Icom 705.

    This is the strongest and most productive tropo opening I've had in a very long, long time. Even still, I don't have a directional FM antenna. I feel that if I did, I could have gotten easily into Arkansas or further.

    This opening might go down in the record books, no not just for me but for many!. I saw the Facebook Hamsters page and someone said that they talked to Ontario on 144.200 SSB from Louisiana. Saturday morning August 19 someone posted a VHF propagation map at 5:30 AM Central that showed a huge orange blotch covering the Midwest.

    I'm still scratching my head on how the heck I got London Ontario during this opening. I guess it was just a fluke and nothing more.

    I went though my notes and audio recordings again and found one more I forgot to list for Sunday August 20 2023

    August 20 2023

    10:23 AM WHHG 92.3 TN Milan ~ Local ads and Jackson, West TN and The Hog mentioned ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 320 Miles

    WHHG was right next to 92.5 WOFX Cincinnati. If it wasn't for that TEF 6866 Radio, I don't think I would have logged them.

    Here are some audio and an RDS-August 20 2023-WCVQ 107.9 KY Fort Campbell - Q-108 - 233 Miles
