    I live in Rochester, MN (in a valley as well) and once several years ago I received stations from somewhere in Nebraska. There happened to be some solar flares going on at the time.

    Forty or so years ago I remember receiving a tropo signal from a San Francisco TV station in Carlsbad New Mexico using one of the old Finco's in my avatar.

    What great antennas those were and we needed them our NBC station was 72 miles away.

    FINCO antennas were the best! I wish I could get my hands on one of their old "bedspring" antenna's...
