Logged WPTX on 1690 kHz at the strike of midnight UTC. The Lexington Park, Maryland station is number 167 in my AM radio log; it transmits 10 kilowatts 300 miles to my southwest. The signal varied between S0 and S5, but peaked momentarily at S7 when the station id was announced at the top of the hour. Equipment used were a C. Crane CCRadio-SW receiver and C. Crane CC Twin Coil Ferrite antenna.

  1. Heard WPTX 1690 in Portsmouth, Rhode Island on my car radio (Honda Accord) yesterday at 2000 in the evening. A lot of static, but enough to enjoy the music and hear the station ID.
