AM band lies between 535 kHz and 1705 kHz. Although it is a dying band, there are some radio stations that can be found on it. Though propagation depends largely on the time of the day (at night the propagation is the best), some radio stations use so much power that they can be heard very far away (some of the reasons why it is less and less used band).

As nobody is willing anymore to invest into AM towers and equipment, only one type of antenna will be described for this band – the one you could use to receive AM signal via your FM/AM tuner.
