No new logs except for WKZP which I haven't logged in two years I believe. Just so fun to see that the FM DX season is back. The logs you see here are the usual suspects for when we have a moderate tropo opening. Weak tropo openings would usually entail seeing WBJC, WRDX, WJZ, and WZXL. Strong tropo openings would include all of these and a lot of Virginia Beach and North Carolina stations as well.

I have noticed the evening tropos , since the house isn't far from the water at all. I have a marine radio I use to monitor Noaa wx radio. When conditions are right the coastal stations start rolling in . With the ids you can pretty much judge the length of the tropo and the direction.  It's a fairly often occurrence here and is best when there's no major wind events to move the water/ land temp differences.
Almost always N_S but have heard west into Carolina as well as stations from the west overlap.
Last year I noticed it on FMbc and  Heard N.J stations.

I will post some this summer as I get them .

Here's one from last year.
