Actually, it was 42.8 MHz, with the
first broadcast on 5/11/2005.
This is amazing stuff, and the person
who rebuilt the FM transmitter to exact
specs (along with it’s Phasitron tube) should
get a big award!
Maybe more on that later, but anyway, the
42.8 MHz wideband FM broadcast was sent out
from Alpine, NJ. (Alpine has a large broadcast
history in itself.)
So the 42.8 MHz transmission of WA2XMN (the
STA callsign issued from the FCC) was heard in
4 states: NY, NJ, CT, and MA. 61 radio DX listeners
heard it on 42.8 MHz: some were even using vintage pre WW2
(wideband deviation) FM radios that had the 42 MHz band.
The best DX was 140 miles away, on a mountain in Massachusetts.
I wish it was still on.
Again, I didn’t hear it, but just trying
was good enough.
