Hello there Mr. Valley, AM1700.
Speaking of 50 kW stations in
Maryland, I have always been a
fan of WBAL on 1090 in Baltimore.
It has a strong signal up here in
I am 3 miles from WTIC’s 50 kW transmitter
on 1080. Even though WTIC has the really
bad IBOC noise on each side of the main
channel, I am still able to hear WBAL most nights.
The way to do it is to tune into 1090, and then
go down to 1088 kHz. The WTIC IBOC noise is a lot
weaker there (obviously) and then you can null
the WTIC IBOC noise out and still hear WBAL
(a little bit off frequency.)
So WBAL is a friend to all of the AM DXers up
