What are some good AM stations from Europe, Africa, South America, Caribbean, Asia, Etc, to listen for from my area? I'm in Bergen County NJ.

Thanks! :)

MW propagation isn't quite like you have on HF. You didn't say anything about what you are using; you will need very good (and, at times, long) antennas and a good receiver. If you want to get into this heavily, then take a look at the wiki article below, and consider joining up with one (or both) of the US based MW DX clubs - the International Club of America and the National Radio Club. This is where you will get the most up to date information


Asia and Africa are, as I understand it, very tough on the East Coast. Europe can be had if the conditions are right. The Caribbean is generally a lot easier.....

One thing that you will run into is that in North America, stations are on a 10 khz seperation -the rest of the world (except the Caribbean, Mexico and Canada) is on a 9 khz station seperation. This means that you need a radio with good selectivity. strong signal handling as well as the ability to tune in 9 Khz increments. Many portables can tune in this way, but may not have the selectivity or strong signal handling to make the DX a bit easier.
