The AM band is where DXing was born. Although TV DX was the first form I discovered - I didn't listen to much AM when I was a kid - it didn't take long for me to notice the barrage of distant stations I could pick up using the AM band every night. Unlike with TV, DX was always there on the AM band. When I got a shortwave radio with digital tuner I made a handful of loggings and came to enjoy AM more. In spite of that, the AM DX log was always a shadow of TV's. I treated AM more as a curiosity than anything else.

When I came back to DXing in 2012 my interest in AM was renewed. I decided to keep a more detailed log and count of the stations I receive. It's not a nightly or regular thing, but a sort of fill in when nothing is happening on the higher bands. The catches are listed here. I make no distinction between groundwave and skywave. All catches were made at night unless otherwise noted.
