Pittsburgh, PA Travel DX Log

Log last updated: 3/13/19

Pittsburgh’s location on the southeastern region of Pennsylvania affords signals from Ohio and West Virginia to the west and south, and signals from Pennsylvania from the north and east. Mountains to the east block most signals from my home region of Washington, DC.

Radios used: Airspy R2 SDR, Sony XDR-F1HD, Sony XDR-S10HDiP, Insignia NS-HDRAD2, Insignia NS-HD01, Sangean HDR-14, Honda car radio, rental car radio
