Wanna hear something strange? During the day, i am NOT in the WSM 650 fringe coverage area and technically I am not at night either. Bruce – Micro1700 made me think of this.
WSM Fringe coverage misses Eastern Kentucky by over 80 miles +- a few miles, they cover central Kentucky pretty well but still scratchy during the day. (i miss their c-quam signal)
Now that is not to say i cannot hear them in the daylight hours, I can , BUT they sound like a part 15 AM at the edge of it’s fringe coverage area. I can hear that station just enough to know they are still on the air but not enough to enjoy their programming.
At night of course they blast over this mountain with authority, i really wish they would bring back their Stereo signal (c-quam) that was the sweetest sounding 50,000 watt station around. I spoke with their engineer about bringing it back to stereo again, he said it has been brought up to upper level management but I guess it didn’t make an impression.
Now i wonder and think we covered this, but as i have stated in older threads that my house is in a valley which stays wet most of the time, we have a creek across the one lane road in front of my house. What would it do with a ground wire accidently dropped into that water? lol
I think in terms too of reception, if i had my long wire antenna grounded to that creek would it help my reception of shortwave and medium wave signals?? When i say grounded, i mean the shielded side of the coaxial cable running from the house to the wire.
Would that create a path to certain stations using the water as a sort of conduit?
As we all know, all streams, rivers and tributaries lead to larger bodies of water.
Just thinking out loud …..which i don’t do too often.
