A year after the first consideration, Ryan Grabow finally collaborated with me to add three video bandscans to his YouTube series using the audio and translations I provided to him. He did a great job and has helped spread my project to numerous video-saavy listeners who wouldn't have found it otherwise. Enjoy 51 minutes of audio paired with maps, additional station information, and subtitles to better understand and appreciate what is the AM band in this region.
