Mechanical Television DX (Long Distance) Reception

Long distance (DX) reception of television began almost as soon as mechanical TV broadcasts began. Because these stations used medium and short waves, their signals could travel long distances. In the United States, it was common for east coast and west coast stations to be received in the midwest and south.
