Upcoming: 500 TOH IDs from Fremont, Mich.

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

Upcoming: 500 TOH IDs from Fremont, Mich.

Post by cckadlec » Sun Nov 18, 2018 8:49 pm

After many months of work, I'm happy to say that I will soon be releasing my audio compilation of 500 top-of-hour IDs as heard from here in Fremont this summer.

The compilation should span a time of just over 5 hours in length and include all 500 commonly heard FM stations as recorded from home on my trusty Grundig G8 portable. As I am working on my Great Lakes bandscan maps at the same time and have a few holes to plug in the compilation (when you have 120 hours of audio recorded over 5 months, shit happens), it will not be released until the end of December. Hopefully you all will stick around for it! In addition to the full compilation, I will hopefully take some time to release the same for individual markets, i.e. Chicagoland, Milwaukee, Green Bay, Detroit, etc., in the next month.

Here is a map of all the stations. Technically they are tower sites of the stations as many sites host more than one included station. The map also mirrors the typical reception area as heard from my location. I had to omit a few stations at the end of everything due to exceeding 500 by a tad, though one would never know without the admission.

In addition, here is a Google Earth file of all stations, from which the map originates. Each station has its calls, station name, COL, power, and distance as well as the exact tower pinpointed.

The project playlist is as follows with stations listed in order of most received to least received for each frequency:

Top-of-Hour IDs: Station Notes

* The city of license for the following stations has been changed in this database as they are 25+ miles from the actual tower location and do not properly reflect the origin of the signal: 92.9 W225BL MI Grand Haven and 103.1 W276CZ MI Saginaw.

+ 87.75 WRME-LP IL Chicago gives only a visual TV ID as required by law, but does not broadcast an audible legal ID, as confirmed by the programming director.

+ 89.9 CBE ON Windsor airs provincial news but does not provide a regional or legal ID, as is the case with all stations in the CBC Music network.

+ 90.7 W214AY MI Walker does not air audible IDs, but instead uses FSK (Frequency Shift Keying) four times per hour, a non-audible method of IDing translators, as confirmed by CSN International's Director of Engineering.

+ 92.7 WAUN WI Kewaunee airs a split legal ID with the primary station ID (WAUN) at the top of the hour and a separate ID of the station's translators following the first song of the hour. Both are included here.

+ 94.3 CKSY ON Chatham / 96.7 CHYR ON Leamington / 101.3 CKOT ON Tillsonburg / 104.3 CJQM ON Sault Ste. Marie do not air a complete legal ID due to relaxed CRTC rules, but instead mention the station call letters and sometimes the station owner at the start of every hour, confirmed through numerous hours of listening on multiple days.

Are you using any type of external antenna? This is very impressive for "barefoot" though.

A 10 element rooftop FM antenna with a rotator can give you +20 dB over ~6 feet above ground level telescoping whips or dipoles, which is my experience and from the reports of other DXers. You'd be amazed at how many stations become regulars with a good 10 element directional FM antenna. There are better antennas than that, and tuned preselectors to eliminate intermodulation, IF effects, and blanketing from really strong signals. If you don't have a lot of IBOC, the McIntosh FM tuners, MR-78 and MR-80 are excellent.

From your location, you would also be amazed at what a short vertical, I used the TV antenna with the 300 ohm twin lead twisted together, or AM loop with a one transistor preamp will do, as found in Tom Kneitel's 103 Simple Transistor Projects on AM BC in the DAYTIME. Not far from there, in the late 1970s, I could hear the Chicago 50 kW stations with no problem Days, and also including 5 kW WIND 560, 5 kW WAIT 820. Heard 250 watt WERK 990 Muncie, IN, and scores of others. WMAM 250 watts on 570, 5 kW WILL 580, WTAC 1 kW 600, CFCO 10 kW 630, WDBC 10 kW 680, 250 watt WAGO 690 in WI, WJR 50 kW 760, WSGW 5 kW 790, CKLW 50 kW 800, WKAR 10 kW 870, WFDF 5 kW 910 with WDOR 1 kW 910 interference, WOKY 5 kW 920, 500 watt WKTS 950 WI, 250 1 kW WLKE 1170 in WI, WOWO 50 kW 1190, WKNX 10 kW 1210, all the Grand Rapids AMs except WMAX 5 kW 1480 and WFUR 1 kW 1570 had WLQB 1 kW 1570 interference. WMAX and WKMF 5 kW 1470 when WBRN 1460 off the air. As I recall, WGRY 1 kW 1590 Grayling. The 1120 harmonic of the WFRS 560 carrier current station. WTMJ was 5 kW 620 then, but of course it was there. WTCM was 1 kW on 1400. The move to 580 came later. Many others, but its been about 40 years.

Well, I won't speak too much about AM reception as I do not deal with it anymore, though you can see my most recent (Jan. 2015) AM bandscan from my location here on page 19. No special antennas. Just typical car radio reception as the "normal" listener would tune in.

As for FM, my entire setup (minus the voice recorder) can be seen here, including my antenna, which is pushed in solely for the sake of the photo:

I don't believe in antennas, DX setups, sitting at a desk while spinning some stupid rotor that can't go up and down or hide behind the couch to find a station or null out IBOC. I'm strictly a coastal mobile DXer, aside from whatever I hear at home. I can't imagine that a rooftop antenna can (easily) null out my 11-mile locals as it can't find a 1mm x 1mm null like my portable can.

All I can say is, you are missing out with a barefoot receiver. Many of the AM stations were much weaker then like WTMJ and WJBL, WOOD, WJPW, etc. I just scratched the surface from memory. The Chicago AMs came in like locals. Listened to WLS and WIND daily. And I was quite a bit further inland. Almost all of the AMs were in the 50-250 uV/m range. WMAQ was the second strongest AM, which most barefoot radios wouldn't even touch there. When you got over to Lake Michigan, WTMJ and WMAQ were wall to wall over there in a County Park on the Lake.

Except that I don't listen to AM at all, for many years (just once every few years to see what has changed). All the Chicago stations are locals here 24/7 on seek, so I don't feel I'm missing out on anything that is normal here :blink .

The thing is, AM radio in North America is a junkyard. I'm sure it's fine for people who know nothing else. But you could probably see from my three-hour audio documentary on East Asian AM... that things here are incredibly bland, just blah blah blah talk and news and sports (with a smattering of nostalgia and country). I don't feel I'm missing out on anything. My coastal scans are what I live for (coming soon to a forum post near you).

I had an old AM BCB SW tube radio that required a long wire antenna to perform well, but it did sound good and it had a 6U5 tuning eye. I guess that got me started on substantial antennas. My Mother got a Sony TRF stage portable radio which received Chicago AMs quite well in Genesee County. Even WCFL came in quite well over 200 miles away in the Daytime. The key to AM DXing now is to turn off and unplug electronic noisemakers and find an electrically quiet location. I don't make judgements about programming to DX. The syndicated programming often helps to at least tentatively ID the station.

Then I got a really sensitive and quite selective Sony AM FM portable with a cassette recorder and player, which made it really easy to tape stations and songs. You could get unduplicated Class Bs and Cs and even Class As over most of the state. A lot of stations signed off then, and like you, just flipping the whip antenna allowed a lot of cochannels to be heard during tropo events and Sporadic E. Some Nights, You could get WWWS 107.1, it would sign off and you would get WPAG-FM 107.1, it would sign off and you would get WSAQ 107.1. You could get WMBI-FM 90.1 most of the time in Central Genesee County. Also WJFM 93.7. I got a very selective and sensitive Panasonic portable AM FM SW which easily tuned first adjacents. I could get KFI 640 on that most Nights in the Winter until 640 was duplicated . With the 10 Element FM antenna on a rotator, you could get many cochannels much of the time like WWWW/WDTW 106.7, WYEN/WZRC 106.7, and WWRM/WKPK 106.7. By nulling out WRIF, you could get WBRN-FM all the time, and also WIXX, and WJML-FM. With my more sensitive Technics tuner, I could get WFMR 96.5 and WLPX 97.3 from Milwaukee. When WFXZ, WOWE, WQHH, the present WMJO, and WUCX came on, those rarely came in.

I have a Tecsun PL-390 and I've been able to null out WIAA, WOLW, WTCM, WKZC, and WJZQ, just to name a few

Thanks! I do photography as well as DX, and started to photograph my radio at each bandscan site starting with my Lake Superior scans in July, all the way around the lake at each site, and then did the same for Lake Erie, Ontario, and the ocean in August. It gives the bandscan a bit extra. As it's just not possible to do these silly video bandscans people speak of - it's not feasible - it is doable to photograph the sights while collecting data!

Milwaukee TOH IDs

Post by cckadlec » Wed Nov 21, 2018 4:01 pm

MILWAUKEE TOP-OF-HOUR IDs -- From my upcoming "500 Top-of-Hour IDs" 5 1/2 hour audio compilation at the end of next month, here are the 43 TOH IDs in the Milwaukee area, as recorded on my portable radio from home in Fremont.

[ LISTEN TO MILWAUKEE TOP-OF-HOUR IDs HERE ]

These are IDs from stations basically within a box from Sheboygan and Fond du Lac south to Waukegan in an area east of Watertown. Despite a few of the Milwaukee area stations being near-locals here, the majority of them broadcasting downtown are not common at all at my home location due to a massive hill a half-mile down the road, whereas Green Bay and Chicago are dominant and easy.

Included in this mini-compilation are 43 stations:

88.1 WMWK WI Milwaukee / 1.8kw / Family Radio (102 mi.)
