Apologies for the temporary site outage from approximately 1PM ET on Monday, December 11 through the pre-dawn hours of Tuesday. The Buzzboard was targeted (yet again) by a hacker, this time from the Middle East. The site was able to be restored using a backup file from early Sunday morning.

WGN Transmitting Station From 1939

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

I drove down the "Radio Hiway" many times with three of the big AM tower sites on my way to Motorola schools in Shaumberg, IL !
After I left Chicago, one of my friends joined the WGN engineering staff and he promised to give me a tour of the facilities, but we never got together at a time we could do it, after that.
Great article !!
