Reception Suggestions

Use the table.  It is based on received music, not theory or estimates.

Look at the transmitter column in the winter or summer table to find the music's source.
Tabs at the bottom of the spreadsheet will toggle between summer and winter charts.
Use this map to determine what direction the signal is coming from.

If using a portable reciever, go outside or to a window that looks out toward the source of
the signal and extend the antenna..
If using an external antenna, use the table to decide what direction most of the signals you
want to hear are coming from, then orient the antenna for best reception in that direction. 
If a dipole, that would be broadside to the source direction.

Best reception below about 13Mhz is usually when both central Texas and the transmitter are
in darkness, if the transmitter is outside North America.

This map has blue lines for each hour.  Use it to try to guess when both central Texas and the transmitter would be in darkness.  Each vertical blue line represents one hour, so there would
be 4 to 6 blue lines to the left of midnight, and 4 to 6 to the right of midnight for darkness at
most latitudes.
