Bowman, ND Travel DX Log

While in pursuit of my 50 State Challenge, I stopped in Bowman, ND after getting a picture with the North Dakota welcome sign a few miles south of the town.  Bowman is a very small town in northwest North Dakota–so small that it does not have a Walmart or any major fast food restaurant.  Ignoring these facts, Bowman would be the perfect place for a DXer to experience Sporadic E, given the radio dial is almost completely empty.  I did a quick dial scan of the local stations while sitting at a gas station.
