Wouldn’t low modulation make it easier for the AFC to lock onto signal since the energy would be mostly concentrated at the carrier frequency? Anyway, that is not the reason she has difficulty tuning. It is due to the crowding of stations and as the receiver jumps from one to another she has trouble identifying which is my signal. My thought is if I can increase the field strength at her location the receiver will find a wider lock range making it easier to associate turning the dial with acquiring the signal.
Yes, there will be phase delays and pattern nulls and it remains to be experienced whether these will be a problem. I will probably not get to this for several more days but I will report what I find.
Carl, I am convinced that female hearing and processing differ from mine. Once again, though the audio quality of her radio is unacceptable to me, I am not the one using it and she is OK with it. There is no more discussion here about this.
Thanks to both of you for your input.
