I visited the Philadelphia, PA area in 2014 and 2016.  My first visit was in downtown Philadelphia, while my 2016 visit was in Mount Laurel, NJ, a suburb to the east of the city.

Most of the stations received listed below are familiar to me, with Philadelphia being only 144 miles away from home and well within my tropo range.

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.
