It’s a rarity these days that tropo under 150 miles brings in any new stations, but that is exactly what happened during the early morning hours of June 16. I received strong tropo from the Delmarva Eastern Shore and with it, three new signals, two over local frequencies. 88.5 WHRG was found on a whim when tuning by local WAMU. I heard a slight “repeat” in the NPR audio superimposed over WAMU and found out it was an entirely different station I didn’t know existed. 101.5 WOWZ has been on my radar since they signed on last year, but I didn’t think I’d get them over local WBQB, which is a very strong signal at my home. Equally surprising was 105.7 W289CE. I thought it was 105.7 WRSF from Coastal NC, but it was coming in way too strong, and the other usual coastal NC relog signals that appear with WRSF were absent. I’m glad I kept on listening. I also added 25 new RDS signals from relogs; 98.3 WHRL’s RDS being the first time received from that station. My DX Logs, Audio and RDS/HD Radio Screenshots pages have been added with the new content below.
