I spent a night in the Cleveland, OH area for a visit to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in August 2016.  While there, I DXed the FM dial.  I was surprised to find several Canadian stations coming in with RDS strength across Lake Erie.  Although distances were average for DX, it was the first time I received foreign DX via tropo.

The logs below are updated as I revisit the area. HD Radio and RDS screenshots are added when received and they may not reflect the initial logging of the stations listed below.
