Already getting some of Cleveland and some Eastern Ontario. Surprisingly CHEX analog Oshawa is coming in pretty clear, that's rare.

It's looking like this could be a really good night for signals. I've acquired WFQX for only the 2nd time and also WTLW which is a channel that usually indicates that Indiana stations might be coming in really soon.

You really have excelled on those Michigan captures.

Pittsburgh is booming as is Cleveland and that general vicinity for me. Rare ones I'm getting WTOV WV, WOUC Cambridge Ohio, WIVN rf29, WPGH rf43 WINP rf38 Pittsburgh.

Funny thing on WPNT, they have "channel 11 news on 53 @ 10" which is actually on rf42 vc22.

12:30am KDKA, WPGT rf49

12:40a, WJAC, WYTV

Picked up WWCP8, WCPW11, CHEX12, WPTZ14, WEPA16, WXXI16, WCAX22, WVPX23, KDKA25, WPCW27, CIII27, WKTV29, WBNX30, WIIC31, WJAC34, WQHS34, WINP38, WKBN41, WPNT42, WPGH43, WNEO45, WROC45, WPXI48, WDLI49, WTAE51.

Holy crow, you scored huge too, I got one that wouldn't resolve for over 5 minutes, no picture but 60-80% ss, WWAT rf45.

Those are coool ones from Clarksburg, I had them showing "poor signal quality" but they didn't come in.

What an INSANE morning and so glad you hit the jackpot as well. The tropo Gods were smiling on us today!

Correction, had already gotten WPCW rf27 before.

Insane morning indeed, and looks like some tropo is back tonight. Picking up WFXP22, WVPX23, WEKA27, WQHS34, WDLI49 right now.

It's hard to keep with you, I think you're way ahead of me now. I also still haven't broke the 400 miles barrier, though I did get another RF30 today which makes 9 different RF30's for me.

10:23pm - WVIZ38

I think YOU are still ahead of me. I've added 15 transmitters this year but I doubt my extra captures makes up the difference for the ones you've picked up in Michigan and Indiana as well as others you were ahead on. I've been real lax in keeping a good log and don't worry too much about the total count, it's more about the hunt!

So far it's been a good summer but I'd really love to see another East Coast tropo wave like we had last year where we all picked up New York City etc.

Nothing new or rare for me tonight, I'm hoping something opens up through New York to the coast in the morning.

Nice snags Orbot, WOSU is a real tough one to get given our proximity to WKBW, I've only caught it 2 or 3 times.

Tonight's been weird, extreme tropo from Erie to Syracuse, was getting rf16 WSEE while pointed at Syracuse @100% SS, same thing for WICU rf 12 and WVTT, Buffalo and PRochester were also booming but something was trying to come in intermittently on many rf's. If you look at the Harder maps there is extreme topo east and west of us with Toronto to KW being a rather dead spot. Hopefully this changes, soon, I've "had a few" and don't know how much lionger I'll last.

Currently getting all Erie including WLEP, all Buffalo except WBXZ (although Global Paris got blanked for a while), CKWS rf30, CKWS, rf 11, CIII 27, Erie's WFXP disappears when turned eastwards but WQLN is 100% so I suspect we're getting some signal from Vermont as WUTV is doing the same. Most of Rochester is coming in, WROC, WXXI, WHEC, WBGT.

1:16am WWTI rf21, something on rf51, it's not resloving, hopefully WJAR Providence.

10:45am Point at Duluth Minnesota Orbot, it's cooking into KW for the Ham radio folks.

11:10am Picking up CHEX Oshawa analog on rf22 and some channel on analog 7, too ghosted to tell what it is, Syracuse, Utica, Watertown and Rochester still strong.

Strong tropo coming out of the east tonight. WCAX, RF22 out of Burlington, Vermont and WPTZ RF14 out of Plattsburgh, New York. Both transmitting from Mount Mansfield, Vermont. Also receiving WKTV, RF29 out of Utica, New York and WETM out of Elmira, NY, on RF18. I also have a full slate of Toronto locals and CHCH out of Hamilton. Might have something to do with the Tropical storm off of the coast of New England.

Picked up WJBK7 Detroit, a couple from Cleveland and Erie, and CKVR10 Barrie tonight so far, hopefully it'll get better. Not sure how often CKVR comes in because I rarely point north.

Nice grabs you guys. Zank, unfortunately I didn't pick up anything to the west last weekend but I did try. I was getting similar results as you with all the strong stuff to the east, but nothing new. Nice star ray catch, I tried for that but got absolutely nothing while pointed at TO (WFXP was coming in while pointing south).

9:28pm - WMYD21 Detroit
