WKAL I have not had many opportunities to DX with the replacement C.Crane CC Pocket AM/FM/WX Radio that C.Crane sent me last week to replace the unit that had a faulty BAND pushbutton. However, I turned the new radio on at the top of the hour Friday evening (0200 UTC Saturday) and heard the station identification for WKAL in Rome, New York. Transmitting 1 kW on 1450 KHz, 169 miles northeast, WKAL is a new station in my AM radio log and was heard using the CC Pocket’s internal antenna.

  1. Wow pretty nice. I have a CC Pocket coming in the mail soon.Really looking forward to it, especially the internal AM antenna DXing which I heard was very good specially with the narrow bandwidth filter option and superd selectivity. I was told it works better than the amazing Sony SRF-39FP sensitive am radio across the ocean. Looking forward to it
