When I was a few years beyond third grade, they were on 800 Khz mediumwave from Bonaire, Netherlands Antilles.
They covered the confederacy very well at night, and they were my favorite international programmer.

Here is the solution to using DRM on your AM station and without losing your analog listeners: Do it with one of the many many AMs whose listeners are all listening to the station's 250w FM translators on TV towers. The DRM transmitter, if the AM day and night signals are acceptable at the translato...

Nice article, except I would make one correction, that we are now allowed to venture down into the tropical bands. I visited the station while they were still in the process of relocating some transmitters from Scituate. One antenna caught both my eyes, a forty-nine meter something-or-other beam wit...

What it seems to come down to is that the best sounding streams will be the HD2's on stations that only run a main and a 2. We have some great sounding 2's where I live, at least compared with standard FM, although I love to hear a station (second school of thought) pop from analog into brilliant HD...

Nah, they must mean both day and night.
We have experienced the following on stations, usually right after a major change is made such as returning to HD service or adding an HD2 or 3.

Thanks everyone, this says it all: "In addition to these separations, applicants or petitioners for Channel 253 (98.5 MHz) must also meet the I.F. spacing with respect to TV Channel 6 stations." My next question would have been about channels 201, 223, and 231 (as, many radios can easily be fixed to...
