Yeah - slow forum - we need some life in here. Perhaps folks are just too busy hunting down rare MW stations and have not yet found this forum.

Thanks for joining in. What new loggings have you caught of late?

I have listened to MW radio all my life, but only started keeping a log of stations a little over a year ago. I now have 174 stations logged during the course of about one-and-a-half seasons. All of this with a Terk loop and a Realistic DX-440. I've found it to be a lot of fun.

Winter MW listening

That's cool!

This winter has been most interesting for me. I've been able to copy Californian stations during the daylight hours here, lately. Some days, better than others. That's quite a unique experience. I think it helps that I am far enough away from local stations that I am not overloaded.

There are even times when local stations are being interfered with by distant stations. Even 770, a strong local, has shared my receiver's detection with some other station somewhat weaker, yet still strong enough to make listening a bit frustrating. This, during the DAY!

Night DXing is hot. Even with a simple radio with an internal bar loop antenna.
