MY DTV DX VIA TROPO • Highlights 2009 • 1

Comments

When I started DXing in the 1960's I never thought photography would be a part of my DXing hobby. My main interest back then was AM, FM, and SW radio. Jeff Kruszka, "Photo News" editor for VHF-UHF Digest, encouraged me in the 1990's to make my first TV DX photographs.

These are the first new photographs I've uploaded to my pages since 2005. As I already have many photographs of analog DX from the USA, Canada, and Mexico on the Internet, my first priority has been to build some new Digital TV DX pages. I shot these pictures with a Canon PowerShot A590 IS. Although the quality of the photography is not great, I think the IDs are of interest.

A note about dates of reception on this page: Although all stations displayed on this page are new logs for 2009, the dates listed here are for the reception of the signals in the photographs, which are not always the original logging dates.

It is always nice to receive a new station while a local is off. I especially like the fall leaves ID.

From what I understand, KTXA-DT moved from channel 19 back to its previous location on channel 18 after only a few weeks on channel 19. KTVT-DT, the previous cccupant of channel 19, is now on channel 19 again.
