FM DXing from Burlington, VT, August 13th

I’m just finishing up my last major summer traveling, and my last hotel room in Burlington, VT happens to have a covered, northwest-facing balcony.  So, I attached the magnetic base of the 6-inch antenna that came with my DVB-T dongle to the railing and did some FM DXing.  (Shortwave logging will become more frequent once I’m back in the swing of things at home.)

The format is slightly different than my shortwave log format, but should be fairly easy to follow.  The strength scale is: very weak, weak, medium, strong, very strong.  The distances at the end are from  “Webcast” means that I confirmed the station by going to the station’s webcast to match the programming.  Otherwise, I waited for an identification of some sort.  All times are local.
