Jeremy is right this one has been massive the past 3 days. It is common for skip like this to surface in the spring and fall. But this time around it is insane. On the HF bands it has been dead after the coronal ejections.
Ham radio on 144Mhz, 220Mhz & UHF has been insane. I was talking line of sight over 200 miles with 50 watts and a mediocre antenna. I was talking to Janesville like they were down the block.
FM radio. Sunday was Indiana/Michigan. Monday was Wisconsin/NW:
Off the top of my head:
90.5 WKAR East Lansing. In HD also, No HD2 or HD 3 though.
90.7 WHAD Waukesha. Solid copy.
92.5 WMBZ West Bend. Solid copy 20 miles away from DeKalb. No trace of DeKalb at all
96.7 WKGL Loves Park, IL. 2.2KW - No trace of Joliet < than 15 miles away
99.9 WJVL Janesville. Solid copy.
106.3 WWQM Madison. 4.5kw Full, solid copy for the 30 minutes I was tuned in.
89.3 WPNE Green Bay. NPR. 100kw powerhouse. Solid but you heard the typical artifacts of a tropo signal.
90.5 WNIU Rockford
89.5 WNIJ DeKalb
WKKV was in HD, also received HD2
92.1 WVTY The Shore.
There were many more, but, time is not on my side! =)
