West Michigan DX Log

Totals

Posted by kilokat7 on February 23, 2010

DX’ers love to keep records of their logs and count the number of states and/or countries they have heard. I guess I’m no different in this regard. I’ve been DX’ing medium wave casually for one year now, so it seems fitting to assess where I’m at. Here goes:

Total US states heard: 36 + District of Columbia
Total Canadian provinces: 5
Total countries: 22
Total AM stations: 353
Furthest domestic catch: KNX Los Angeles
Furthest TA: 783 Khz Syria @ approx 5,900 miles

New state logged: KNMX New Mexico

Posted by kilokat7 on February 19, 2010

KNMX heard with a fair signal during peaks with West Las Vegas (NM) “Lady Dons” high school basketball at 0300 UTC. Lady Dons vs. Robertson(?) Usuals CBK Saskatchewan & KWMT were unheard. I assume KNMX was on their 5kw day power as 25w would be an unlikely catch.
