Tropo Propagation This Morning

Like four weeks ago, I noticed a tropo opening on my car's FM broadcast radio while running Saturday morning errands. However, I was able to do something about it this time.

I logged four new stations using my CCRadio-SW and its whip antenna.

The best of the quartet was WOMR on 92.1 MHz, 147 miles away in Provincetown, MA and WBUR on 90.9 MHz., 100 miles away in Boston.
