WNIB-LD returned to the air on February 24, 2021. They had been on a Silence STA for equipment work.Got a new station today.
WNIB-LD Rochester on RF11.
I think it may have just come on air very recently.
Very directional and only sends 30 watts towards me.
Turn the antenna 20 degrees and I get WVTT.
Surprising these two stations are operating so close together.
Tons of DXers were on the WTFDA DX logger (WLogger - members only website) posting their E-skip loggings today. The E-skip opening went on for over four hours, from the time it began until it finally started running out of steam.The FM e-skip event was wild and crazy today. I'd get a station in for 10 to 20 seconds at full signal strength, and then it would vanish, only to replaced by another one. This went on for about 2 hours straight. I think if I could of identified all of them I would have found over 200 e-skips. These are the ones I was lucky enough to identify.
Miracle 89.1 KFLO Shreveport La. 986 miles
KPFT Houston 90.1 1199 miles
KETR Commerce Texas 88.9
KICW 91.1 Ottumwa Iowa Public Radio Classic 593 miles
90.9 Radio Kansas Grand Bend, KS 989 miles
88.7 Lexington Nebraska Public Media 969 miles
89.7 WRTU San Juan Puerto Rico - Didn't identify this one exactly, but there was a definite signal path of multi hop from San Juan to my location on the live FM dx map. Also on the sporadic-E muf map at the time, the frequency at my location was 89. Plus, I went to this radio station on the internet for the live feed and it definitely sounded like the same guy that was on my radio. (1899 miles)
In short this was my most incredible e-skip event I've had since starting this FM hobby last year..
If only my tv propagation would pick up, I'd be delighted.
