Luckily, stvcmty, I went on to find a few usable channels here on FM, and for now they are remaining open.
Another FM problem I don’t recall anyone talking about is the amount of RF energy in large cities that accumulates in the receiving antenna to the point where it adds input voltage at the antenna terminals, contributing to eratic performance.
Wonder if all the religious radio operations at both low and high power keep listeners long enough to matter, the bottom line being measured of course in donations. If it’s lucrative you can’t blame them for taking advantage of public generosity. It’s great to receive money for nothing in exchange.
Over the years I’ve held discussions with various friends about starting a radio church and spending life building a bank roll for little more than repeating a few stock platitudes. The hardest part is remembering to act like you really believe it.
