96.1 WHNN BAY CITY MI BEST HITS 0805EDT 100KW 100 MI (MI49)
I sat on the freq, he popped up, with splatter from 95.9, then fadded out 6 min later, but not before giving his call letters 3 times and his location. sweet.
98.5 WUPS HARRISON MI CLASSIC HITS 0821EDT 100KW 140 MI (MI50)
I used the local setting on the dx/norm/local switch to avoid overloading, worked great.
I built and tested out a Moxon 2 element folded wire beam cut for 88 mhz, at 7pm tonite, i copied 3 stations at 90 miles, 2 sta at 60 mi and 3 sta at 40 mi, two hours before sunset. It has good nulls, only receives stations in one direction. looks like a winner. using horizontal polarization and it has 5.5 db gain.
