A word to all DXers: make sure your unattended radio recordings are running 24/7! Mine were off while I was at work on June 13 and, you guessed it, a Sporadic E-Skip opening blanketed the U.S. East Coast for most of the day, with signals coming in from the Deep South and Midwest. I was able to enjoy the tail end of it while driving home from the office. All signals below are relogs. The opening had a MUF of 93.5 FM, but there’s no way of knowing if it was higher earlier in the day, nor can I guess if the opening lasted longer than the 40 minutes I experienced in my car. Signals were, for the most part, weak and mixing with regional tropo. Regardless, it is nice to see some signs of Sporadic E in Northern Virginia, a little more than a week after I wrote about the lack of skip. My Audio Files page was updated with the audio below.
