Long Distance AM Radio During Solar Eclipse

By | August 21, 2017

Radio friends, be sure to grab your best receiver and scan the AM dial today. The solar eclipse is a rare opportunity to hear long distance stations during the daytime. AM radio stations which normally cut their power back and/or run directional pattern at night will be running on their full daytime facilities. During the time of complete eclipse, it is possible that we will hear stations from over 1,000 miles away!

Let me know what you’re listening to! The next full solar eclipse in the U.S. won’t happen until 2024, so be sure and take advantage of this rare opportunity for AM DXing during the daytime. CQ CQ CQ DX!
