Hi Ridge,I forgot where you are-northwest? I haven't really given serious DX a try by actually sitting on a frequency where there's no solid signal and waiting for something to bloom out, so I never heard anything past Wyoming! New York would be a miracle more than a fluke for me.
Another problem with the wire now is KSFO on 560 is imaging on 1680. LW is saturated with MW junk every 10kHz. I had this with the old wire antenna too. I don't get what it could be and what I could do for it.
I'm in Western Washington.
There are some stations east of Wyoming that might be audible in SF: 1110 KFAB (mixes with KBND OR here; sometimes has a one second or so delay on Coast To Coast AM); KSTP 1500 (varies from s1 to s3; ESPN sports radio); KXEL 1540 (audible behind a local station here; they play Red Eye Radio latenights); WOAI 1200 (sometimes readable underneath a semi local station from BC Canada; has Coast To Coast overnights); XERF 1570 (often audible with varying levels; Ranchero and Norteno oldies and Mexican folk music); WHO 1040 (often audible here behind a sports station from Vancouver Canada; various news talk shows at night).
There are a few others, but those are the ones I hear the most, off the top of my head.
