I have not scanned for a month and a half
I hope all is well, besides yesterday you haven't missed much. I am still blown away by Orbot's Nashville catch. I've been pretty frustrated that my long distance results are almost always to the east, yesterday proved that that isn't always going to be the case.

Let's hope we have some warm spells this fall/winter, the repack's coming and we only have a 2-3 years to max out our transmitter totals.

P.S. I saw Google, Facebook etc are complaining to the FCC about the Sinclair/Tribune merger and trying to slow down the repack preventing the quick rollout of 5G wireless, one thing they mentioned was Sinclair owns Dielectric, the largest antenna company. The other beef is this will slant news broadcasts to be shaped by Sinclairs political agenda.

Scanned in 73 channels on my first scan tonight. Transmitters at around 100 miles from my location are screaming in at full strength, even though the live propagation paths differ from my results. It must be the dense fog tonight, I guess. It looks to get even better later.
