I am frequently in the Philadelphia area.  My first visit was in downtown Philadelphia, while my 2016 and 2017 visits were in Mount Laurel, NJ, a suburb 15 miles 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.  During my 2017 visit, I experienced great tropo with signals received over 220 miles away, many in with RDS strength.

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.
