Latin music on 106.5 FM?

The technical side of broadcasting. Think IBOC is a sham? Talk about it here! How about HDTV? Post DX reports here as well.

Latin music on 106.5 FM?

Post by bmw » Tue Jun 13, 2017 4:19 pm

Some strange reception conditions on the FM band today. Overall very unstable. Can't tell for sure if there might be some minor e-skip going on, but for a few minutes, all of a sudden a Latin station came booming in on 106.5 FM (I'm listening in Northeast Michigan). Language was Spanish, music was Latin, sounded very modern. Then it began fading in and out, then it was gone.

Any ideas?

Thanks for the notice there, the MUF is at 109 over Kentucky at the moment (4:30pm), so I'll go check the radio. A Kentucky MUF that high would indicate Florida as your Es reception though there are some high ones to the west of that point that could push some Louisiana and far east Texas skip into your area as well. But I'd concentrate on Central Florida, honestly.

Yes. You were likely hearing KOVE-FM from Galveston/Houston, owned by Univision.

MUF is now up to 143 MHz between here and the Carolinas and Virginia. But after an hour, it just dropped out like a rock. Was listening to WRNS on 95.1 with RDS bashing the heck out of WIIL. Went back to it a minute later and WIIL was back to its normal local strength and the MUF was below FM just like that. The Es, and I dunno if it will return again (likely will), was taking out many GR locals, but the Milwaukee ones held on really well.

With the benefit of that info now in hand, I am going to change my earlier answer to Rumba 106.5 (WRUB-FM) from Sarasota, FL.

The station sports a Spanish CHR format, so the format definitely fits.

Re: Latin music on 106.5 FM?

I had Florida in on 5/28 while visiting my parents in Manistee (I moved to the Ann Arbor area a few weeks ago). Although I missed quite a bit of it due to family commitments, I still got several stations:

88.1 WJIS Bradenton, FL
93.1 WFEZ Miami, FL (this station seems to come in every Florida e-skip event)
93.1 WKRO Port Orange, FL
93.5 WBGF Belle Glade, FL
96.5 WPOW Miami, FL
99.3 WLRQ Cocoa, FL (RDS) (thanks Roy!)
100.3 KLRZ Larose, LA (only ESPN on 100.3)
100.3 WRUM Orlando, FL
103.5 WFUS Gulfport, FL (HD decode over WTCM!)
103.9 WXKB Cape Coral, FL
106.7 WXDJ Fort Lauderdale, FL
106.7 WXXL Tavares, FL

I missed the 6/13 event completely due to work. However, at least two Detroit-area DXers pulled in Bermuda that day.
