Lookie what was in my rental car!

Post by K9EZ » Fri Jan 18, 2013 8:23 am

New Mazda with factory HD Radio. Worked real well. Was picking up WLLD-HD3 (near Tampa) while driving around Orlando. WLLD-HD3 was rebroadcasting WFAN New York...guess the New Yorkers have fully taken over FL. Interesting that WLLD didnt have an HD2.

First HD receiver I ever saw in a rental was in a Ford Edge I picked up in December 2011 to drive from Red Wing, MN to Sheboygan, WI - I posted a pic on FB while listening to WXSS's HD2 from 60-odd miles away. No dropouts, either - I was impressed!

WLLD is a monster signal, its 74 miles from Orlando, and about 25 south-east of Tampa. I've been to their very tall tower.
