Sunrise AM DXing with the stock radio in my Subaru this morning added WCNW into the log at 1155 UTC. The Fairfield, Ohio station was broadcasting the local weather report while transmitting 1 kW on 1560 kc, 635 miles to my WSW.
WSBV signed on at the top of the hour and took over 1560, but I could still hear WCNW under WSBV.

I logged three new AM radio stations. Two with the CC Skywave barefoot and one with the stock radio in my 2007 Subaru.
With the CC Skywave, I heard WNBH Monday evening local time, 2320 UTC on 1340 kc transmitting 1 kW from New Bedford, Massachusetts, 105 miles to my East.
Also heard WFTH Monday evening local time, 0000 UTC on 1590 kc transmitting a mere 19 W from Richmond, Virginia, 373 miles to my southwest.
In the Subaru this morning during my commute to work at 1140 UTC (sunrise was at 1133 UTC), I heard KXEL on 1540 kc transmitting 50 kW from Waterloo, Iowa, 4 miles short of a thousand miles to my west. KXEL was loud and clear for about 5 minutes broadcasting the local weather forecast. The KXEL logging is the best AM DX from the Subaru and is in the top 5 for best AM DX overall.

0230 UTC - 1560 kc - WFSP - Kingswood, WV - 1 kW - 386 miles WSW - S1 to S3 - 1960 oldies
0329 UTC - 1600 kc - CHHA - Toronto, ON - 6.25 kW - 354 miles NNW - S4 - Spanish language
0359 UTC - 1490 kc - WKVT - Brattleboro, VT - 1 kW - 86 miles N - S1 - station identification, nothing else!
2327 UTC - 1560 kc - WTNS - Coshocton, OH - 1 kW - 473 miles WSW - S0 to S2 - country & western music
The CC Skywave continues to impress me. I am also enjoying the absence of WQEW on 1560 allowing me to log 3 new stations on that frequency.
