Hearing Thornburg CC (152.0975) and Fork Mountain CC (152.7125) crystal clear here in FM18 (Fairfax County). Also hearing Emporia on 152.1825 and voice traffic from Fork Mtn.

WX band is wide open as well, .450 is active, which I've never heard before and 3 stations are fighting each other on .475.

The weather channels can be a good indicator of tropo. I was down on I-64 halfway to Richmond last summer and I was hearing one on Philly. When I lived in Richmond years ago the band would open and the ham repeaters on 146.88 in both Raleigh and Greenbelt, MD would come booming in. We don't seem to get a lot of tropo here in the foothills.

Good catch!
