  • Lovettsville, Virginia FM bandscan

    I spent a few days near Lovettsville, Virginia, roughly 40 miles northwest of Washington. This bandscan used a Tecsun PL-880 barefoot. The location was nicely elevated, but shielded from the east by a mountain. DC and Baltimore stations were FAR weaker than expected, but signals from the west, southwest, and northwest were pretty impressive. WWCF was 80km away -- and only seven watts! (though 433m HAAT)

    The South Asian station on 101.7 is a real mystery. Would also love to know who the ESPN station was on 93.7.

    I suspect WDCN may actually be on 87.75, as the signal was rather distorted.

    Stations without specific ID information are presumed. There was a brief Es opening during my stay (logged one definite Oklahoma station and one presumed), I cannot entirely rule out there is more Es in this list. (but there probably isn't)
