AM X-Band Stations

AM X-Band Guide for 2020-21 DX Season
This is a list of radio stations in North America, Mexico and the Caribbean currently believed to be using the extended AM band between 1610-1700 kHz.
(Stations marked with an # is inactive).
Transmitter powers for US stations are generally around 10 kW, with many of the stations listed required to reduce power at night, often to around 1 kW. Because this part of the AM band is relatively clear in Europe, apart from occasional pirates, it is possible to hear some of these stations overnight here in the British Isles when conditions are suitable.
