I thought the entire Metro Atlanta was horrible for DX due to bad ground conductivity.
Perhaps I should've clarified my earlier post. The Atlanta area indeed has horrid ground conductivity. But at night, it's as good as any metro area for DX....perhaps even better, at least from the standpoint of one not having to go very far from transmitter sites to get out of interference and harmonic zones that would otherwise cause havoc for skywave signals.
Woodstock, Georgia, about 30 miles north of town, is even better because it's an open....almost semi-rural...location with fewer noise sources than areas closer to the city center.
Hope that explains it.
