I’ve occasionally visited the Tampa, FL area since 1999.  While there, I’ve DXed in various suburbs, often getting gulf-enhanced DX up to 400 miles away.  Signals from central and northern Florida, as well as southern Georgia, also come in from time-to-time in the Tampa area.

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.
