DX late morning (9/3/20)

The technical side of broadcasting. Think IBOC is a sham? Talk about it here! How about HDTV? Post DX reports here as well.

DX late morning (9/3/20)

Post by MWmetalhead » Thu Sep 03, 2020 10:04 pm

Was picking up 98.5 WUPS at full quieting with RDS around Fowlerville and Webberville around 10:45a this morning.

Was also picking up a pretty good signal from 103.1 WGDN-FM from Gladwin.

107.3 WTNR from Greenville (tower is actually 6 miles north of Lowell) was also booming into Livingston County w/ crystal clear signal.

Rock 95.5 in Chicago is the worst sounding major market rock station in the history of corporate radio.

I was getting 93.3 the Bus from Columbus earlier on my radio.

A few weeks ago, I was getting Star 102.5 from Buffalo with RDS for a good half hour before static fade happened.

Good strong WX front probably ducting the signals then.

I received KSLQ-TV 11 St. Louis, MO in Mecosta County back around 1980 at this time of year. Back then, there weren't that many FM signals crowding up the dial, and a lot of the FM frequencies were not even duplicated anywhere else in Michigan, even a lot of the Class A frequencies. You could hear signals from all over the Midwest on a good Delco FM Car Radio this time of year. Just one more thing that has become less fun over the years-FM DXing.

Is THAT where they got the idea for the 486-SX?

Same (x, y, z), different (t)

Your bullet missed my trial balloon.

RTN Price. Not guaranteed. As of 12:30, 157.71 Down 0.22.
