The best time to hear meteor bursts is usually in the hours surrounding your local dawn. However, good meteor bursts can often be heard at other times throughout the day and night.
New FM/TV DX
(stations heard and logged here for the first time)
All FM stations are logged using two Denon TU-1500RD tuners with RDS. The FM antenna system is an APS-13 FM Yagi at 50 feet. A second APS-13 antenna at 35 feet is used with Andy Bolin's Phaser to null out undesired stations. Analog TV receptions are made with a Dell W1700 TV. Early DTV logs were made with a Hauppauge WinTV-D card. Newer DTV logs are made with an Insignia STB. TV antennas are the Delhi VIP307SR (VHF) and Channel Master 4228 (UHF). All screen captures were made using a Hauppauge WinTV-D card.
FM / TV / DTV / AM
SPREADSHEETS NOW AVAILABLE
NOW AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD... I offer a variety of Excel spreadsheets, created using data extracted from the FCC's Consolidated Data Base System (CDBS) and the Canadian Broadcast Data Base System (BDBS). Plug in your latitude and longitude, and these spreadsheets will calculate the azimuth and distance to every listed facility. The U.S. and Canadian spreadsheets are typically updated each week. Mexican FM & TV spreadsheets are updated only when new data is discovered. These are very useful tools for the serious FM, TV and AM DXer. These spreadsheets may be freely used and distributed.
For additional information about these spreadsheets, including release notes, click HERE.
US and Canadian Spreadsheets Last Updated
NOTE: Until the FCC catches up
with all the recent changes associated with the analog shutdown and various
DTV flash cuts, the US DTV spreadsheet will likely contain some outdated or
incorrect data. The US Analog TV spreadsheet has been discontinued.
