Title: Not hearing Hudson Valley TIS lately 1710kHz.
Post by: ThaDood on July 16, 2021, 1916 UTC
Yeah... For several weeks, I haven't heard that 100W Hudson Valley TIS from NJ. (Can't say as I miss them.) So, does that leave 1710kHz semi-open again? Hmmmmmmm???

It was nice to log the DX at first... then it became a pest.

Sadly, I am hearing the completely useless Hudson County TIS station on 1710 at 2308 UTC 18 JUL 2021.

Hey All.

Yes ,1710 Kc is probably the “ best” place to “play” due to it using short antennas.

But at least here, the X band has enough
open frequencies close to 1710 that it doesn’t matter.So I can QSY without any noticeable issues.

I DO have a 1 MC crystal  that is almost the size of a pack of Marlboros :)) .It’s another story completely.

But frankly , now my AM tx “goals “are to only cover maybe 200 ft East and also from my basement shop to the 2nd floor shack.Should be “ easy “ ( when I get to it - LOTS on the bench right now and only limited time to work on stuff.).

1710 is pretty much useless now in most of the northeast USA due to the Hudson County TIS. But 1720 is clear  ;D
