Tropo reception has picked up for the second day in a row in Northern Virginia. During the early morning hours of October 5, signals were enhanced up to 150 miles away into southeast Pennsylvania and southern New Jersey, with many signals coming in over locals (94.7 WDSD over local WIAD, WJBR over local WIHT, 101.1 WBEB over local WWDC, among others). For the first time, I logged 105.5 WAIV, a pleasant surprise, given 105.5 is crowded frequency in this area, usually occupied by nearby translator W288BS Reston VA, WRAR Tappahannock, VA, WOJL Louisa, VA, and other signals.
