Southern Dunes Bandscans

Post by cckadlec » Tue Apr 02, 2019 2:54 pm

Here are two bandscans conducted on the same day: Warren Dunes and Indiana Dunes. I will post in the future when both scans have their maps, photos, and site details posted on my website for anyone interested. The full Lake Michigan series will be posted in May.

Warren Dunes' typical reception is South Bend and Chicago - both local - with usual Milwaukee, Peoria, Rockford, Quad Cities, and Madison with the stronger inland Michigan and Indiana stations (the usual lake stations from behind: Win 98.5, KFR, WBCL, The Bear, etc.). WIIL Rock went nuclear on this day at 50dBµ, which in comparison, is as strong as 99.9 just 14 miles away.

Indiana Dunes reception is similar, but because the shore is east-west(ish), Grand Rapids and Milwaukee dominate along with local Chicago stations as well as The Region. Inland stations are included less in the scan because it was done on the dune's north face halfway between lake level and the peak, dulling all south inland reception (purposely).

Average distance of reception is ridiculously low at both sites (compared to 100-200 mi. elsewhere). In other words, as one would imagine, not great for listening...

It's helpful to do the scans on the same day as the comparison is more ideal with similar weather. IBOC, on the other hand, is a pile of sh*t at Indiana Dunes and helps nothing. Some of the Muskegon and GR stations that are common at this site (I've used this site for years) are a victim of the IBOC on this day. :barf
