Re: Fixed Frequency AM radios

As a poor teenager, I think that I restrung a tuner with kite string rubbed with candle wax- kinda worked - good enough.

Re: WWJ sounds great right now! Full 10 kHz analog bandwidth!

630 CFCO still lights up the (AM) "STEREO" indicator on my 2001 Chrysler Car Radio and sounds pretty decent on day pattern/power. I believe that WION is also in Stereo AM and 10KHz frequency response.

Re: CSX back to #1

Wow, after CSX, what a tightly-packed race with several 2 and 3-way ties. WWJ still strong while WJR faltered. Beasly should be pretty happy, especially after putting his own money in to keep the company afloat

Re: Most distant AM/FM/TV signal you ever tuned in?

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?

Re: RePack Phase 8 started

So STA's, but everyone is on their final parking spot. Can any obtain a power increase if coverage is less than before?

Re: WLEC changes formats and bumpers, seems to have gone Classic Hits

Who's retiring from WLEC? And isn't their HD-2 the same as the HD-1 most of the time?

Thanks for sharing Turkeytop. Didn't know those QSL stamps still existed into the 1960's, thought it was years before that?

Re: Lew Dickey UPDATE

How can an American (or Canadian) broadcaster be more than 49% foreign-owned? Isn't that what killed The Big 8 when RKO couldn't own CKLW?

Re: Late Night talking heads

Fallon is like a cup of java- way too hyper - I want to calm down, relax, chuckle a few times and go to bed. No thinking, no hating, no anger, no politics, no fast moving action, just slow and easy and off to night-night land.

Suggestion: cancellation. Hollywood Squares would be better.
