This list includes AM stations in the United States and Canada that broadcast with a power of 50,000 Watts day and night. Some of
these stations are what was once known as the "clear channel" stations; others are not. The fourth column shows the station's
antenna pattern:

Most of the original "clear channel" stations are nondirectional 24 hours. Some stations, such as WBZ, could operate as
nondirectional, but instead use a directional pattern to avoid sending large amounts of signal into the ocean. The formats and call
letters on this list are probably not 100% up-to-date, so send any updates to
