I took a short trip to Las Vegas, NV in 2013. While there, I DXed from the 22nd floor of my hotel room with the Sony XDR-F1HD.

Although local signals within 70 miles came in easily at that height, I found no DX conditions whatsoever while in the city. I believe this was due to two factors: mountain ranges to the east and west of Las Vegas, and a lack of signals outside of the city.

Also, while visiting the nearby Hoover Dam on the Nevada/Arizona border, however, I was surprised to not get any Arizona stations whatsoever outside of one that serves metro Las Vegas. Like above, I believe a sheer lack of signals in Arizona near the Nevada border is to blame for the lack of non-Las Vegas signals.

The logs below are updated as I revisit the area. HD Radio and RDS screenshots are added when received and they may not reflect the initial logging of the stations listed below.
