Four More

My July 17, 0900 UTC top-of-the-hour recording yielded four new stations (using an ELAD FDM-S2 receiver and 80-meter inverted Vee antenna).

WRSC on 1390 kc in State College, PA, transmitting 1 kW, 266 miles to my west-southwest.

WNRS on 1420 kc in Herkimir, NY, transmitting 64 W, 145 miles to my northwest.

WRED on 1440 kc in Westbrook, ME, transmitting 5 kW, 193 miles to my northeast.

WHKT on 1650 kc in Portsmouth, VA, transmitting 1 kW, 378 miles to my south-southwest.


  1. Stan:
    Have you had any success around the half hour station ID's?
    What hours are giving you the most stations known and new?
    It must be great fun to leisurely check the full AM bandwidth.

    1. Hi Doug,

      I have not tried the half-hours yet. 0200 and 0800 UTC have been the best top-of-the-hours so far, but I must admit that I have not tried them all yet. And yes, it is a lot of fun!
