I was just doodling around and the thought occurred to me...just how many 50,000-watt radio stations do we have in North America?
So, a Google Search led me to this:
From 540 to 1580 kc's...I wonder why not in the Extended Band (1610-1710)? Maybe because it is so "open" or "clear"? I'll have to look into it....By the way, there are several duplicated frequencies; differing directional patterns help reduce or eliminate interference to the targeted areas.
I may try to log a bunch of these...some will be harder than others, due to their directional (or lack thereof) patterns...but, it'll be fun to try! So, on a weekend, I'll fire up the Kenwood TS-140S Ham rig and the Hammarlund HQ-100A shortwave receiver, and maybe the Realistic DX-400, plug in some different antennas and try my hand at it.
