FMDX - LOGS 2020

BTW for those who worry about the complete lack of 2019 logs, well in my humble opinion, it is a combination of lacklustre FM ESkip propagation and bad luck for not being DXing at the right time, thus as you can notice, I have nothing at all to report for the entire 2019 season.

On the other hand, I had more success during the 2020 season compared to the previous one. Actually, besides my full time job, I’ve managed to be witness of two major events.  The dynamic maps bellow were created using Google My Maps (a Google account is needed) and originally powered by FMLIST.

The next clip features Florida’s:

From the Carolinas’ opening, Just a very few worthy recordings in this next clip; there featuring:


WMYB 92.1 Myrtle Beach SC

WQSL 92.3 Jacksonville NC

As described above, I’ve been witness of two major events so far this season. The first was modest I’d say, with stations mainly from the Carolines and Virginia.


In contrast, the second event on father’s day has been quite buzzing, this time with a large number of stations from Florida. Nothing from the Keys however, nor from the Caribbean. WUAL has been quite steady, here at your left with RDS info locked in. Listen HERE how it sounded.

Additionally, a more detailed spreadsheet version of my 2020 FM ES logs is available here (.xls) where you can find the up-to-date FM ES log list for this ongoing season. This was also powered by FMLIST

The above dynamic map is showing the area of the Carolinas’ opening with most stations coming from NC and SC, along with a couple from VA and GA.

… AND A FEW TROPO LOGS

Alongside:


WKOL 105.1 Plattsburgh NY

WEZF 92.9 Burlington VT

WFRY 97.5 Watertown NY

CFLY 98.3 Kingston ON

WHOM 94.9 Mount Washington NH

WJJZ 94.5 Irasburg VT

Except for some New England stations and the Montreal area enhancement, I usually don’t have much success when it come to Tropospheric Ducting propagation (Tropo). Although on that Summer of 2020, I managed to hear Ontario, which was a first as a province with a couple of 400+ km catches. Note that I didn’t took account logs from the Quebec province as most of the stations generally heard are coming from the Eastern Townships and the Montreal area, which doesn’t worth mention in my view.

Additionally, another more detailed spreadsheet version of some of my 2020 FM TROPO logs is available here (.xls) where you can find the up-to-date FM TROPO log list for this ongoing season. This was also powered by FMLIST.
