Between the cold this morning, and a huge approaching storm front to the south, did anyone else notice a fairly strong tropo effect this morning?
Even with my antenna pointed in a non-optimal direction, I was able to receive a fairly strong WFMJ/WBCB [UHF 20, 21.1, 21.2] for the better part of this morning; and WTRF [VHF 7, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3] was also coming in plenty strong too until well past 11 AM, when the 50-60% signal I had started varying and making it difficult for my CB to stay locked on it.
BTW what is it with WTRF? There is no programing information in the EPG on any of their sub-channels, and their broadcast clock is either running very fast, or it is still set to DST. (Plus the audio on 7.2 *still* has this weird echo effect making it sound like everyone is speaking in to a plastic tube.
Okay, so I know WTRF isn't a large station, but as a (3-way
) network affiliate, one would think they would have a station engineer who was cognizant of these kind of things.
