Travel DX Log: Woodstock, VA

media-travelUPDATED 6/15/14: I have added new station logs and RDS screenshots from a recent June 2014 visit to this DXing location.

I frequently visit family in the Woodstock, VA area.  While there, I often DX.  Situated about 68 miles west of my Woodbridge, VA home, the Appalachian Mountains shape what can and cannot be heard in map-woodstockWoodstock.  The town is in the heart of Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, which is between various mountain ranges.  Due to this, signals to the N, NE, E and SE (Washington, Richmond, Baltimore, et al.), are attenuated to the point of typically being staticy 24/7.  Unlike Luray, VA, which is 15 miles SW on other side of the mountains, most of Woodstock’s signals come from the panhandles of WV and MD, along with a few other Valley-area signals in Virginia.
