My subscription to Life expired, but I still have a subscription to Mad.

AM/MW band conditions have been pretty, pretty good lately. Yesterday, I not only added a new station to the log, but also a new country.

HJAN, Emisoras Unidas, on 720 kHz transmitting 30 kW from Barranquilla, Colombia, 2,121 miles to the south. Those 2,121 miles represents my longest distance AM logging, finally topping my logging of Radio Americas on Swan Island (1787 miles) back in July 1967.

Equipment used was the ELAD FDM-S2/FDM-SW2 SDR receiver and the Hy-Gain 18AVT/WB-A vertical antenna.
