No new stations for me, but seeing some Indiana stations that I haven't logged since 2013:
3:58am, WTTK Indianapolis, IN RF15 VC 29
3:59am, WXIN Indianapolis, IN RF22 VC 59
4:20am, WIPB Muncie, IN RF19 VC49

12:30 am, WRSP Sprinfield Illinois RF16 VC55 1-3 488 miles. This might be the weirdest catch I've had. All of my regular stations are normal tonight. No signs of anything unusual happening until I was surfing the signal meter on my tv. I land on RF16 and there is no signal strength at all and then all of sudden it jumps to 13db and vanishes back to zero strength a second later. In that one second my tuner decodes the signal. It took me about a half hour to identify this new transmitter, as the station only identifies as Fox.

Got to wonder if that was a reflection off an airplane or something similar. Such occurrences would normally go unnoticed 99.999% of the time.

This is exactly what I was thinking. At the time of the capture on the live propagation map there were no signal paths to my location greater than 100 miles. I always thought this type of occurrence was bs but now I'm not so sure.

Since TVO Paris moved to rf22 WJET Erie is now coming in loud and clear. Not as strong as WSEE but varies between 18-21dB.

P.S. Orbot, how is that new tuner working? Hopefully we get some Pittsburgh tropo soon so you can grab WPGH, WTAE and WPNT in atsc 3.0
