I have been ask for more information about the quilting-hoop loop that I used for this reception. The details are here:

Today at around 14:00 EST I managed to increase my mid-day AM DX distance record to 509 miles by logging WOWO 1190 Fort Wayne, IN from my home in Cary, NC. WIXE 1190 in Monroe, NC provided little competition today. The WOWO signal was very weak but the distinctive "Wo Wo" ID came through clearly at one point.

At about the same time I logged WSM 650 Nashville, TN - 449 miles and WLW 700 Cincinnati, OH - 393 miles. WSM is a mid-day regular here and WLW is somewhat less so.

All of these were with a Tecsun PL-380 and a 24" quilting-hoop loop. WSM was audible without the loop.
