FM E-Skip opening 7/15/16 into IA, MI, MN, WI. 13 new FM logs.

post-fmesAfter writing about the lack of evening FM Sporadic E-Skip this summer, I finally experienced a respectable opening into the upper Midwest on July 15. FM Es first popped up at 6:01 PM for 50 seconds, then it returned at 7:23 PM and stayed in FM until 9:21 PM.  The MUF went up and down, but it stayed at 107.9 FM for the majority of the opening and brought in sustained signals–something rare this season.  New log 97.5 WJIM, at 469 miles away, tied the #2 spot for the closest ever FM Es signal received here via Sporadic E since I started DXing in 1999.  What also surprised me from this opening were the amount of HD Radio and RDS decodes.  Overall, this opening helped salvage an otherwise poor FM Es season to bring it to a point where it is not completely a dud.  My DX Log and HD/RDS Screenshots pages have been updated with the new content listed below.  My Audio page will be updated with the new audio clips below as time permits.
