Re: Question: Good reception or just average?

Hi CSA,
As Paul says, I don't know your local conditions, but I can say (I am the proud owner of one of this) that the HDR-14 is a very capable receiver and enough sensitive to catch a MW signal 700 km away under the right conditions. Propagation is changing and have in mind that last night the  solar CME hit the Earth and MW conditions were better than average. Probably also helped!
Saludos

I do. But the station points it’s antenna SE at night. Basically the opposite direction of where I’m located. That, along with being only 5,000 watts seems like it would be difficult to capture with a small radio like the HDR-14, with no assist from a loop or other ancillary antenna.
