Nighttime DX has been pretty much a wipeout here the past week or so with the K Index as high as it had been.

Per several sources, looks like St. Kitts is FM nowadays.

This is a tough one here in MI with KXEL dominating the freq.
Can occasionally hear some what sounds like Gospel music breaking through, but not enough for a positive ID.

Did not know you were referring to AM only. Wire is for shortwave use, yes ferrite bar for AM.

OK, thanks  :)

Sony AN-61 reel wire

Hmmm, AFAIK, the ferrite bar acts as the antenna for AM on the PL-600.
Do you find that the wire antenna enhances reception on the AM band?

What are you using for an antenna on your PL-600?

Nice catch, especially with the 50kw Calgary station relatively close by.

MW Loggings / WLS AM 890 poor signal
« on: March 02, 2024, 0949 UTC »
WLS AM 890 Chicago should be booming into here next door in MI but most mornings they are stomped out by Radio Progreso.
OK, so, the Cuban is running 200KW but still... someone at WLS look outside the window and make sure your tower hasn't been
stolen for scrap metal.

WPTX always has a great signal.  My guess is that the soil conductivity is excellent at their tower site.

If AM radio advocates are a "motley crew" then sign me up, matey, arggh.

btw... where is the FCC in all of this?  Shouldn't they be concerned about the EV spewing electronic hash
as it drives by?  The EPA won't allow gas powered vehicles to emit exhaust pollution,
so, likewise the FCC should not allow EVs to emit electronic pollution.

This time of year the sun is as low in the sky and rises as late as it gets.
Takes a while for it to fire up the D layer.
Nice catch.

WCBS usually booms in here during the pre-dawn hours sounding like a local.
Meanwhile, one channel up the band, WLS in Chicago has a paltry signal which is often covered by the Cuban on the same freq.  ???
