Did anybody else sit outside late evening/early morning on a hot, muggy, stinky Ohio night and note the extremely enhanced propogation on VHF/450/800 mhz? I did. I normally wouldn't sit outside on a night like this one but I had some gut instinct that the stars might be aligning for great propogation, and of course the 'coon was visiting my back deck and I like to be hospitable.

Using an RS 800 mhz ducky on the PSR-500.

Logs are way too numerous. In fact, I haven't even finished with them. But to give you an example of what I've heard so far on 800 mhz alone this evening, including over 30 Ohio MARCS sites and around 35 AEP EDACS sites, here is what I've heard this AM:

MARCS Zone 1 (712D) Site - 868.5000 cc - 2 am 7-19-08

Plus the local stuff. Plus all the 450-474 and 150-174 things i was hearing but didn't log since none of the new stuff was P25 / trunked on these bands.

Hmm, that was fun.

Same here in Licking County. I thought the Heath trunked system had come back from the dead until I realized it was Geauga County.

I'll post more later, but I also had 12 AEP sites (can usually get 4), 15 MARCS sites (usually get 4-6), both Stark County sites and Tuscarawas County. On 400mhz I had Stark County fire and Ross County SO.
