This paper presents an up to date study on external noise levels in the medium wave band based on field trials carried out in Spain and Mexico during years 2004 and 2005 respectively. External noise levels predicted by the ITU-R P.372 recommendation are based on measurements carried out more than 30 years ago and no updated results for the medium wave band have been published in this time. An increment on these noise levels have been measured, which leads to a significant impact on the minimum usable field strength requirements for the broadcasting systems used in this frequency band, such as the new Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM) and In-Band/On-Channel (IBOC) systems
