Hi everybody,

Reception over the past two weeks has been exceptional. I found that if I set aside 4 hours around sunrise and 4 hours at sunset to listen, the band comes alive with new stations. Sometimes unpredictable but reception usually follows the movement of the sun. I'm slowly catching on.

Below are my loggings:

My receivers include a Tecsun PL-380 and a PL-310. All station ID's are recorded on the total recorder or a Sony recorder. The times are CST.

I'm putting in a lot of hours (retirement is great) but the stations are out there. While no new states have been heard, reception within 500 miles is very good and ever changing. New regionals are being heard under locals and some of the big clear channel powerhouses are disappearing to reveal new stations.

Totals now are 355 stations, 34 states, 5 Canadian provinces and 4 countries.
