The technical side of broadcasting. Think IBOC is a sham? Talk about it here! How about HDTV? Post DX reports here as well.
Once on the west side of Saginaw in the town of Sheilds I picked up what was known then as Y95 FM from Tampa FL. I heard Jimmy Hendrix's All Along the Watchtower, I thought to myself WVIC in Lansing on the same frequency must have changed their format, they don't play Hendrix. Well, when the jock came on and said " That's Jimmy on Y95 FM Tampa, I was blown away at the time. I believe I was picking them up on a sunspot, sunspot activity at the time was active so that is what I suspect. The station is now WWRM, it was WYNF back then.
It's all about the money!
RDS (when used) certainly helps ID FM DXing. Couldn't AM stations run a real low speed station ID using PM at at pilot frequency like the AMST 25Hz pilot tone frequency?
Because what were the clear channels, are now mostly cloudyZenithCKLW wrote: ↑Thu Mar 28, 2019 6:15 pmI can’t seem to ever receive anything but static on 640, and I consider myself pretty well trained to listen for signals under the static. I feel like KFI is the gold standard for DXing in Metro Detroit. Once I can receive that, I’ll achieve my goal.
So my (rhetorical) question is, what am I doing wrong? Why can’t I get KFI? I’ve received 17 watt stations from Tennessee from Livonia on the transoceanics, but KFI still escapes me.
