    Welcome to the DX dialogue/Roundtable page. These are basically comments or reactions sent at the end or along with your loggings to DX-midAMerica! Rather than going through everything posted, you can get a general "feel" for how things are, or have been of late, or what you might have missed! Comments will be kept up a few months as conditions change day to day and minute to minute!
    A DOTTED line will separate monthly entries:

Jun 03: Extremely difficult session; nothing hung around for more than a few seconds at a time. That KWGF catch was completely off the wall, as I noted nothing else whatsoever coming from that way.
Jun 03: Many thanks to Mr. Rieger for heads up via text on this opening. My first of the season.

May 30: Looks like we worked THREE different clouds Saturday afternoon/evening. I was quite pleased with the opening toward the southeast.
May 27: What a night! SS on 710 (Cuba?) 800 TWR, 1010 WTZA?, 590 SS "de la Musica" 890 somthing u/WLS, 940 SS
May 25: Felt good to hit the dials again. 1230 SOUNDS like WFER-MI's WIKB-99.1, yet there certainly would be stop-sets for ads, or talking within one hour of listening. 1280 might be WADO. Will see again tonight. Per WKTA: if I've heard that station 15 times in 53 years of this hobby, I'd be bragging! Most of signal goes into Lake Michigan.
May 21: Shoulda stayed in bed. Lousy conditions, but good coffee, and that's the news! No FM to speak of.
May 17: The 800 is a stumper! Totally lost on this, but thinking ????. Weatheology is MN based. Flip for sure!
May 11: Certainly not the greatest listing, but what was available.
May 07: A night in the graveyard! Always fun!
May 05: Barely DX in this report, but it is May.
May 04: Sat on 1240 hearing Old Time Radio. 1400 w/semi local WRJN totally nulled yielded talk, but who? Listened 15 mins or so, and you'd never guess when it faded. The 680 OLDies was not heard this session.
May 03: It sounds like many people heard the DX test from Montana. I was able to hear it on my main DX radios and also using my CCrane CC Skywave with built in antenna. Gotta go mow my very overgrown lawn!
May 02: Did not think I would get this one but those sweep tones and Code IDís made it so easy. New catch for me never been heard here before. You have to love new DX in May.
May 01: A few others who fade in, out and more than most: get lost! Will be back again tomorrow, hi!
Apr 30: Sat on 1570, then later on 1450 for an hour. Few fade ups but no bites, I guess. More tonite I hope!
Apr 29: WoW! Nice to get a NEW log. Only 4TH new log of 2020!
Apr 28: One thing for sure. Looking over my 53 years of logs, I'd never have the numbers IO have now due to dial/station crowding versus 1967's radio dial. Whew!
Apr 27: Getting my feet wet w/a little FM action!
Apr 23: Getting up early for this? Sign me Harley Worth-it!
Apr 22: Coulda listened longer, but if I hear Corona Virus another 400 times, I'll lose it! Cut the losses and go for an essential dog walk!
Apr 20: Certainly not going for distance, but closer in rare or hopefully NEW stuff! Essential dx, hi!
Apr 17: Nice to MN ND SD a bit. STILL, trying for 1590 KDJS Willmar, 1270 KLXX Bismarck, Off for essential dog walk later on!
Apr 16: Noted too, KMNQ MN was on this morning, tho not as good as the other day.
Apr 15: I think this was the earliest I'd ever seen Es in April! Today it's snowing in Carleton; just measured 2" atop the trash cart outside. Go figure!
Apr 14: Nothing great, obviously, but in May, this might look pretty good, I guess.
Apr 11: Certainly none of these are great, but it is April, I guess.
Apr 07: Decent tropo this morning!
Apr 07: Also noted, but not logged: WGL-1250 FWA on this morning, // 103.9 Wayne FM, and playlist match to WWFW. Lousy cx this morning; checked FM and it was also dead.
Apr 07: Nothing great, certainly, and a few UNIDS on 1140 (Urban AC) 960 "Tri County Bank" (in WSBT null.) KLTF? 1420, what sounded like R&B. Nothing, great, again, but trying.
Apr 03: ALSO NOTED: slight echo during Hugh Hewitt on 1250; one was apparently WPGP, the other I'm kind of leaning toward WRAY, as it seemed to be from the same QTE as FWA. Kind of difficult to get around WGL, and there's also a third station from Warrenton, VA that carries Hugh Hewitt during the same time. Will remain unid for now...
Apr 03: Cx still nothing worth writing home about.
Apr 02: Lackluster cx in Carleton continue...
Apr 01: Don't dx SSS much, but this wasn't too bad for the end of March. 1230 & 1240 seemed nice, plus WBT.
Mar 28: Very nice compared to yesterday and last night, where nothing was worth reporting. Out to walk the dog. Light walks, from two tumors. She is a strong girl!
Mar 26: A few others popped in and out. One was giving an EIGHT day forecast and faded "here at..." Gone!
Mar 19: A nice session this morning. A few not heard in quite a while.
Mar 17: Not as good as yesterday. A few things out of whack seemingly: power ups, patterns, etc. Out for a dog walk now.
Mar 13:Wow! What a great SRS session. Very, very good! Shoulda been up earlier, hi!
Mar 11:Rather nice morning. Many, many UNIDS, indicating stuff was in and worth chasing, for sure. None new, but the two rare logs were worth the effort!!!
Mar 08:So nice that so many stations didn't set anything for the time change to Daylight Time. Hi!
