During the early morning hours of June 2, minor tropo enhancement brought in several signals from Philadelphia (98.1, 102.9, 104.5), Wilmington, DE (93.7, 94.7, 99.5) and Trenton, NJ (101.5) between 120-150 miles away from my Northern Virginia home. These signals are common in my area and are not spectacular DX, but Wilmington’s 94.7 and 99.5, Trenton’s 101.5, and Philadelphia, PA’s 102.9 did come in strong over local signals WIAD, WIHT, WBQB, and WKIK, respectively. All screenshots in this post were added to my RDS/HD Radio Screenshots page.
Although I have received HD Radio and RDS from the following stations before on other radios, June 2 marks the first time that I received them with the Sangean HDR-14 radio:
93.7 WSTW Wilmington, DE, 122 miles
99.5 WJBR-FM Wilmington, DE, 123 miles over local WIHT
96.7 WCEI-FM Easton, MD, at 64 miles away, is a daily signal received at my home. The station debuted their HD Radio signal earlier this year. Up until now, the only radio in my shack that I picked up the station’s HD broadcast on was the Sangean HDR-14. On June 2, I received their digital signal for the first time on the Sony XDR-S10HDiP, Insignia NS-HD01, and Insignia NS-HDRAD2.
