The Fort Myers logbook closed at 105 digital TV catches and 461 FM catches, including many from Orlando . They're local stations now, and as of 9:19am (on 9/19/19 - yes, I'm like that) they've offically been entered into the logbook, so Orlando's counter begins at 18 TV and 33 FM stations. The band is crowded here, as expected, so a few more locals (once I've determined they should be classified that way) and many semi-locals will join them in the next few weeks.
My new 25km radius is centered near Border Lake in Seminole County. All stations I catch within this circle can be logged as if I saw/heard it at home. Just like Fort Myers' radius this one is positioned so interesting DX spots fall within it, particularly Gilbert Park in Mount Dora. There are a lot of hills and lakes around there, and hopefully the topography of that park will attenuate Orlando's full-power stations enough to let e-skip through.
We'll see how my first-story apartment fares with tropo and e-skip... I'll get a more DX-friendly place soon enough. I plan to set up a new digital logbook on egrabow.com, but I don't know when I'll have the time to do it. While I'll certainly dig around for AM catches from time to time, I don't have plans to log catches on that band, or weather radio.
