I just pulled out my trusty old XDR-F1HD and hooked up the AM loop,
and it locked instantly (for the first time ever on any "HD" AM
station).  I'm not setup for listening to line-level outputs right now
so I can't comment on the audio quality.

(Note that I am just about two miles east of Mt. Wayte Ave., so
practically in the peak of the pattern.)

I'll see if I can remember to check when driving tomorrow (usually I
have the car on Bluetooth for podcasts).
