Sporadic-E from Manitoba
On 93.5MHz FM Just had "The Eagle 93.5FM" from Winkler Manitoba.
Strength varied from 00 dBu to 40dBu on my Grundig Traveler II G8.
That's a first for me, DX from Manitoba on FM.
93.7MHz had something on there too, covering up WBLK from Buffalo, but it was to variable to get an ID, although it came in strong, good stereo was had
I knew something was up when I had a very strong but variable CBC Radio 1 on 92.7MHz.
What was most interesting is the Winkler station was mentioning severe thunderstorm warnings and tornado watches. This is about the 8th time in receiving sporadic-E skip over the years that thunderstorms seem to play some role by being active in or just before hitting the area I've received the station from. Solar activity is currently very low with a few visible sunspots, so it's not necessarily that is the cause, as it once was theorized.
