  • Hola desde San Nicolas de los Garza, Nuevo León, México

    Soy nuevo en este Foro, me anime a registrarme por sugerencia de Raymie por tener un registro de recepción a distancia muy interesante y para compartir mis experiencias en este foro.
    Soy Jubilado, parte de mi tiempo libre lo dedico a practicar Diexismo en mi ciudad de residencia en San Nicolás de los Garza, N.L. México.
    El pasado 14 de marzo del 2016 a las 22:00 horas recibí vía TROPO una transmisión de Tv digital desde Jacksonville, Florida a 1,905.59 kms (1,184 Mi) de distancia de mi ciudad, se trataba de la estación WJXT 4-1/4-3 RF 42. Horas después ya por la madrugada, el 15 de marzo de 2016 a las 2:55 hrs. recibí también de esa misma localidad la estación WJXX 25-1/25-2 RF 10, y la estación WJCT 7-1/7-4 RF 7 a 1,904.19 kms. (1,183 Mi) de distancia.

    I've dragged in another Mexican! (And with good reason!)

    I'm here to translate Arturo's initial post:

    "I'm new on this forum, I decided to register at Raymie's suggestion for having logged a very interesting distant tropo catch and to share my experiences on this forum.

    I'm retired, and in some of my free time I do DXing from my hometown of San Nicolás de los Garza, Nuevo León, México.

    On March 14, 2016, at 10pm, I received by tropo WJXT 4.x (RF 42) from Jacksonville, Florida, at a distance of 1,905.59 km (1,184 miles) from San Nicolás. Early the next morning, at 2:55am, I received from the same area WJXX 25.x (RF 10) and WJCT 7.x (RF 7) at 1,904.19 km (1,183 miles)."

    (The pics show WJXT, WJCT and then the third does not work. Arturo, sugiero que uses imgur en vez de TinyPic porque TinyPic es un poco...raro. No se puede incorporar las imágenes sin enlaces.)

    I've seen Arturo on one of the Mexican forums I follow for a couple of years now. It wasn't until very recently, though, that I realized he held the DTV tropo distance record. I saw he had WFTS earlier this year at 1,821 km, and I then checked Chris's WSFL catch to see how long that was (1,850 km). I realized there might be something further, and then I realized the very impressive Jacksonville stuff from last year was the record holder as I scrolled through the thread. I got in touch to suggest that he register here.

    It says something that the analog and digital tropo records were made in the same place: the Monterrey area. San Nicolás is less sheltered from local stations than Fernando García was in Guadalupe, but the general lay of the land east is the same.

    ¡Bienvenido, Arturo, y gracias por hacer caso de mi sugerencia!

      And Arturo has also joined the club's Facebook group called TV and FM DXing. He has shared some photos of his DTV tropo catches. Welcome Arturo!

          Welcome Auturo and congratulations on tour terrific DX. Looking forward to your fither accomplishments. I wonder if one of the older HDHomeRun scanning tuners (found on Ebay for atound $60) that many of us are using would work down your way and we could watch your DTV in real time.
