FM E-Skip opening 6/22/14. 10 new FM logs. 1800th FM signal logged!

media-fmesFM signals from Arkansas, Florida, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas were heard in Northern Virginia on June 22. The mammoth FM Es opening started at 6:52 p.m. in the lower FM band and shot up to the opening’s MUF of 107.5 FM by 7:22 p.m. I believe multiple Es clouds were in at once — one bringing in most of the Midwest FM signals, a second one bringing in Florida signals, and a third bringing in the Tennessee signal while the other clouds were dying out. Signals from all clouds ranged from weak to strong, however, most of them exhibited what I call a “hide-and-seek” signal. In other words, these signals were local grade upon tuning, but quickly faded out to nothing seconds after tuning in, as if the signals were playing hide-and-seek with me. The opening was out of FM by 9:49 p.m., or 2 hours, 57 minutes.  Other DXers reported FM Es past 1 a.m. June 23 — something I haven’t seen in a while.  My DX Log, FM RDS/HD Radio Screenshots and Audio Files pages have been updated to reflect the information below.

Additionally, tonight I logged my 1800th FM signal, 105.7 WQAK from Tennessee, as listed below.
