With this earliest East Heat Wave, (Since May 1981, if my memory can recall.), besides T-storms ripping up the HF bands, Tropo Enhancement could be possible for DX VHF / UHF. So, late night, or early morning, scan TV channels, the FM broadcast band, the 162MHz weather FREQ's, and the Amateur Bands, for that propagation.   (UPDATE): And, again for just after Memorial Day.  (UPDATE): And now, for early to mid-June.

Just got SWL'ing news about this:   https://swling.com/blog/2022/05/wbob-last-minute-50-kw-dx-test-on-600-khz/   Having a Carrier-Current station on 610AM, I'm not likely to hear this, except on the road. Should be a clearer FREQ than 1100AM was.

After sunset, a dude in N. MI was working "1"-land, yet I hear him in Southern "8"-land. He wasn't hearing me, but worked a bunch of New Englanders, and occasionally I could hear them. Tis the season for Summer "E"'s.

https://swling.com/blog/2022/04/matts-2022-rooftop-receiver-shootout/       I'd still take either Drakes and that Panasonic. Electronics class in college had the Panasonic to try out, and it was used to listen to the oscillators that we've built in labs.

I've experimented with IR and white light LED's. Even thought of this as a station STL. However, this is Line-Of-Sight, so snow fall, heavy rain, even birds, will block this.   http://www.modulatedlight.org/optical_comms/optical_index.html     and    https://sites.google.com/site/g3xbmqrp3/optical      All neat, and legal to do.

I've bought books like this before, and they are a nice resource to keep around.
 Yeah... Another SWL'ing rip.

Huh? / Anyone ever check-out this magazine, The Spectrum Monitor?

https://www.thespectrummonitor.com/     and      https://www.eham.net/reviews/view-product?id=14036   Apparently, most columnists are ex-Monitoring Times.  For $25.00, I might give that a go.

Weather / Well, Space weather. Cycle 25, where are we?

A friend of mine linked me to this,    https://spaceweather.com/

Huh? / Wanna' see where Jeff White works? WRMI tour.

Yeah... Another SWL'ing rip, but a neat radio history read, nonetheless.     https://swling.com/blog/2022/04/the-cooling-radio-station-musa-the-ultimate-ssb-receiving-site/
