As a DXer, traveling is a fun way to see and hear what the radio dial is like in other areas. 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.

The log below represents the first logging of every signal I received in this area. Changes (i.e. new call letters, formats, etc.) observed in these signals upon subsequent visits to this area are noted in the “Information” column, where appropriate. RDS and HD Radio screenshots shown below may be from different loggings of the same station.
