Station playing techno type music on 1.717 AM right now. At first, I thought it was an image, it's not. 10 over 9 here in S/E Michigan. Clean deep rich audio, sounds very nice

Thanks, Skipmuck. I don't get out from under my log often  ;D  Still a big signal here also, light fading, but it does fade into the S6 noise level at times

Thanks, Kilo. I'd like to try and do a little more listening this winter in my favorite portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, the medium wave band  ;D Oh, myteaquinn, thanks for the station ID
