I tried to search 150 miles from me as that is about the furthest must folks can receive during a temperature inversion. During an Inversion I can receive 96.3 in Morehead City but only during extreme inversions usually after 9PM at night however when I broadcast anytime after 6 I’ll go silent for a few seconds every hr or sometimes 1/2 hr to be sure its not trying to come in. 96.1 is a Very faint station out of Va Beach that only comes in at night and the next station that is licensed is 96.7Mhz. 96.5 gets bleed from that Rap station on FM which is 96.7 Mhz. I have looked at all stations in the area. Interesting however that I found on the database an 87.9 station several miles from me. Maybe I’ll try and narrow my search in the database and see what happens but that wide of a search really messed things up.
I too have used Radio Locator to find my blank frequency and by listening. I’ve listened at different times a day and by getting folks to use a car Radio too.
I can see Translators are really getting to be an issue on FM and its gonna get worse. We always need to check our frequencies and these data bases do help.
