First FM Es opening of 2017 into LA, MS, TX. 3 new FM logs.

The 2017 Sporadic E-Skip season is officially underway in Northern Virginia after an average opening on May 28 brought in signals from Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas into my area.  The skip started shortly after 4:20 PM and dipped out of FM a few minutes later.  It came back a little stronger about an hour and a half later, ending abruptly at about 6:50 PM.  All in all, about 10 minutes cumulative of skip.  The MUF, or maximum usable frequency, of the opening was 106.1 FM.  My DX Log, RDS/HD Radio Screenshots, and Audio pages have been updated with the new content below.
