Received in central AZ, local time UT – 7 hours, see above links for more information on equipment and log format:
I generally won’t do “real-time” AM BCB logs, but do take the occasional break from shortwave, and I can use my little Terk Advantage tunable loop indoors when the weather is threatening during the current monsoon. I’ve also used the 26-foot outdoor elevated randomwire, as well as the other 74 feet of that piece of twinlead lying on the ground as AM antennae. (I’m getting ready to build a 3-foot tunable loop.) All of the following stations have been found at night, and except for a few obvious cases (e.g., local ads, plus the right format), these have all been confirmed by actual call letters or on the radio station’s webcast. For the latter at night, I’m also careful to confirm a station with something else, because there are several popular nighttime syndicated shows that have dozens or hundreds of affiliates.
The format is simple: freq, call, city, state, nighttime power

83 total stations with 11 in Mexico
13 US states and 2 Mexican states
There are 117 total frequencies available from 540-1700 kHz and I have “hit” 74 of them; many of the misses are heavily used frequencies for which is it easier to get a single good signal during the day. This is a good start, and I hope to really step up the quality of my AM DXing once I get my tuned loop built.
