�indows-1252?q?YAHOOOOOO…NEW STATE # 48 on AM-BCB T �indows-1252?q?his morning!!  View Printable Version 
Thursday, January 18 2018

You don't always realize until much later how good conditions were in the past.


In addition to AK, I also logged OR ( KYMN-1520 on a DX Test ) MT (3), ND ( 2) WA ( 1 ), NM ( 1 ), and ID ( KBOI on both 950 and 670 ), all from Syracuse, and all with fairly marginal equipment and antenna. I did have elevation though.


But that was also back in the days of not a lot of NSP'ers and lots of MM SP's ( 1964-67 ).

Oh I'm not discounting my chances at eventually getting IDAHO Russ……If I live another 40 Years I'll probably get it!! It's ALASKA and HAWAII I am surrendering on…….

I tried many time for Hawaii on 650 when WSM signed off on Monday Nights in the 1970's……but I never managed to hear them! I'm sure it's virtually impossible for me now in this day and age…..

Robb KBOI via sunset skip thru WSCR would be a good shot. Best up coming
time would be early Feb. I wouldn't hold my breath for KGEM as the cx to
bring that in via SSS also probably have Alberta QRM. KGEM has been heard
here only a couple of times. 73 KAZ 55 km NW of Chicago

I'm not sure that you should discount Idaho so easily. If you received KFIR
through WGN, might not
KBOI-670 be heard similarly through Chicago ? And you should also have a
shot at sunset at KGEM-1140.

For AK & HI, I'd agree. I heard KORL back in the 1970's from New Jersey. I heard AK via KFQD when they were on 730 and I was in Syracuse NY in the 1960's. Yet you have a better shot now from there than I would from here.
