Any AM stations receivable in Bangalore
Yesterday, I was tweaking my Kenwood X993. All I could receive is the FM stations. Do we receive any AM stations at all in Bangalore ? Any radio channels that dispense news
Thanks for all your help

You can receive AM stations all over India.
Especially at night, shouldn't be any problem.
AM broadcasting - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Medium wave - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I remember listening to Radio Ceylon etc being broadcast in totally opposite extreme of our coutnry.
I guess tge problem with modern radios is that they are simply not built to for AM/MW transmission.
They are built for FM and only that they do it fine.
Compare it to an old Philips "transistor" radio.
Still would pick-up weak signals from lands far away.
(Shortwave signals can be caught from across the globe)

Medium waves propogate along the ground and get attenuated within a hundred or so kilometers depending on the broadcast power. Hence you would not get an adequate signal beyond that range even if you have a medium wave radio.They are mainly intended for local coverage.
