Es opening 7/5/13. 14 new FM logs. (updated)

post-fmtvesUpdate 7/8/13:  I added three audio files below: 89.1 KYCU, 96.1 KCTX,  and 97.3 KKNG

The best Es opening so far to date this year in Northern Virginia was on July 5.  Starting with very short <600 mi paths at 5:44 p.m. into Chicago, IL, a city never received here before in 14 years of FM DXing, signals were strong with HD Radio decoding into Illinois.  The skip moved southwest into Iowa and Missouri, before staying in most of Oklahoma for the latter half of the opening.  Two DTV signals were seen on channels 4 and 5, but there were no decodes.  Screenshots are included below after the jump.  The Sporadic E dropped out of FM at 8:10 p.m., or 146 minutes, with a MUF of 105.3 MHz.  The RDS and HD Radio screenshots have been added to the RDS & HD Radio Screenshots page.  All TV Screenshots have been added to the TV Screenshots page and all audio files have been added to the Audio page.
