Thanks for the info.
Yup. I have a station on 1630 down the
street from me. It transmits information
for the town. It runs around 10 watts, but
the power was lowered to keep it within
the correct field strength contours.
Maybe it’s not really a TIS, because it is just
an emergency info station that the local
fire department set up. So I don’t know
it’s classification. It does have a callsign,
I believe it’s WQBL-834.
I was bummed out when it came on the
air and covered up KCJJ. I did listen to KCJJ
for many years. I was lucky – my SRF-A100
did go up to 1630. This 1630 local station
doesn’t do too much. It has a “tape loop” about
fire and carbon monoxide safety, and a few other
announcements about services the town has
The local 1630 is about 1/3 of a mile from my house.
None of my directional AM antennas sufficiently null
it out. I do have an AM BCB antenna phasing unit,
but it’s not set up right now. WQBL-834 also comes in
on my crystal set.
So thanks again, RFB, for the info. I wish they would
turn the 1630 down the street off, but I guess that’s
And as for KCJJ in Iowa, they are a talk station, but
I believe they transmit music during the weekends.
