Hagerstown, MD Travel DX Log

Hagerstown is 72 miles away from my Woodbridge, VA, home, and it is about equally 62 miles away from both Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD. Located close to the panhandle of West Virginia and the Pennsylvania state line, Hagerstown is on the northwestern fringe of my local FM stations’ range. Its position at the northern point of the Shenandoah Valley also allows it to get signals from both sides of the mountains that affect reception at another place I’ve DXed, Woodstock, VA, which is in the same valley but surrounded by mountains to the east and west and suffers severe signal attenuation in those directions.

Although the DC and Baltimore FM signals largely make it into Hagerstown with RDS strength, the signals are riddled with ‘dead spots’ at various places in town which allow other signals on the same frequencies to come in. Case in point: 99.5 FM. On the east end of town, DC’s 99.5 WIHT was blaring in. On the west end–maybe 5 miles away–99.5 WDZN was coming in with RDS, instead.

All station information in black text is as first logged.  Changes heard upon subsequent loggings of the same signal are noted in red text.  Signals logged anywhere within a 30 mile radius of this location are eligible to be added to this log; signals logged in a car have an asterisk (*) next to the mileage.  RDS and HD Radio screenshots are added below as received and may reflect different iterations of the same signal.  Radios used: Sony XDR-S10HDiP, Insignia NS-HD01, Sangean HDR-14, Honda car radio.  Visit my DX Logs page to view my home/main DX logs and travel DX logs from dozens of other cities.
