hoosierdxer The big repack here is Friday.All 4 markets surrounding me flip channels and everything is gone above 36. Got a grand total of one open channel. It's gonna get ugly.

Zank Frappa Nice grabs Hooserdxer and thank for your wishes we'd get a view of that duct, sadly it remains firmly south of us, if you are up I'm sure you're getting hits from Arkansas to Virginia.

hoosierdxer I've seen that come up in the guide after a ch scan on the Insig box.Only thing you can do is bring up 22 and see what happens.

When tropo is slow I do stupid stuff like seeing how many stations I can pick up that are on the same channel.This morning I broke my personal record on ch31.

WBXX Knoxville 231mi
KDNL St Louis 266mi
WFLD Chicago 210mi
WANE Ft Wayne 112mi

All within 5min time.Tried for Detroit but no joy. Where is the Fall Tropo??????

Zank Frappa Got a weird one, rf22, 2 channels Physical 22-5 and 22-6 but no clue what it is.

Zank Frappa @orbot
Yeah I had those previously on their old channels.
Oh, I guess that's a new one for me then, I thought it was on rf24 before, thanks for the info, I'm terrible for remembering what channels were on what freq's.

steelota At 5:50 pm, New Transmittter WTAJ RF24 Altoona Thank you to orbot, for letting us know that this channel moved.
At 6:20 pm, WPSU RF15 This is noteworthy because, I've only had 4 different stations on that frequency, ever. Rarely, am I able to knockout the WEWS powerhouse from my location.
At 6:45 pm, getting WDCQ on RF15 now, weird results tonight. Maybe this will be a good night!
At 7:05 pm, New WSYT RF14 Syracuse WKTV and WFXV from Utica
At 7:45 pm, WTVH

orbot Yeah I had those previously on their old channels. WTAJ is the only other rf32 I picked up other than the one from Grand Island. Left for a couple hours but came back to see tropo strong again, the autologger grabbed another new one:

RF28 (40.1-6) WPCB Greensburg, PA
2019-09-29 11:10 AM
Zank Frappa You didn't get WTAJ before???? City Woodstock has been blanked for me, but WATM hasn't come in yet.
2019-09-29 10:39 AM
orbot Just picked up a new one:
RF24 (10.1-4) WTAJ Altoona, PA

Also the autologger grabbed a new one at 5am, I was hunting it a week ago when WNEP Scranton was in and out for a couple days but couldn't get it:
RF34 (38.1-4) WSWB Scranton, PA
2019-09-21 10:10 AM
Humbar WROC Rochester is the only Rochester station that is pretty much consistent for me now, and has been since they moved to RF21, the others are intermittent but regular visitors.
2019-09-21 09:25 AM
Zank Frappa Getting some Eastern Tropo, Rochester, Utica etc, nothing new but at least it's something. WHAM rf9 Rochester is trying to come in but it only hits 14dB and then back to 11.....

Zank Frappa @hoosierdxer , You're right in tropo alley. This morning is a total letdown, Hepburn's map looked like it would be a good day, so far it's been a bust.

hoosierdxer Zank, I-74 midway Indy/Cincy.

Rads. got your RF's and VC's mixed up.BTW nice catch's!
