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

Yup! And it was mostly dead conditions for that day, which was actually what I was hoping for. A fellow radio guy lives right up the road in Kenosha and the band is more or less the same there with a few minor differences due to being a tad closer to Milwaukee locals. Michigan wasn't that strong at the beach but go a mile or two (three, more) inland and yikes, really blasting in. 93.7 and 107.1 especially, but the Muskegon / Fremont area ones like 105.3, 106.9, and 107.3 Greenville, etc. pack a punch. But they do the same between Manitowoc and Fox Valley too though.
