I’ve hand pick the Album Rock songs which has the widest Stereo separation!
These songs can also help you test your Stereo and your Hearing. If you don’t hear separation a few major things are an issue. 1. Your Stereo does not function right. 2. Your AM Radio is NOT compatible for C-Quam. 3. Your speakers are too close. 4. You may need to consult a audiologist for your almost Deaf.

What good will listening to the Internet stream do? Unless it’s taken directly from the output of a CQUAM receiver in your coverage area, it won’t demonstrate anything about CQUAM.
I thought you were already broadcasting in CQUAM with your Part 15 AM station?

I listened and I hear the stereo but I hear it as it plays through my computer, not as CQUAM sounds on a radio. I hear it the same as if you are streaming.

Yes I was broadcasting in C-Quam for the local listeners and the demonstration was the stereo effect of true album Rock for the people listening on the Internet stream. Since the songs had such wide separation it was an opportunity to test your stereo system along with your hearing skills.
Believe it or not I’ve had folks tell me there’s not much difference between stereo and mono. Plus there were folks who didn’t understand why stereo is so important to album-oriented rock. The songs were hand-picked by me showing the utmost importance of stereo when it deals with album-oriented rock listeners.
Most of the songs were all deep tracks from bands like Fever Tree and much more. I got a brand new audio processor even better than the one I had before. It’s the new processor by Sean Cuthbert and it’s meant 4 AM stereo broadcasting. The sound is remarkable and it does help get through the static as you can keep your signal at close to 100% modulation.
In my opinion this processor is a milestone 4 part 15 broadcasting particularly people like me who want to broadcast in C-Quam AM stereo.
I may do another demonstration later but again this demonstration has a dual purpose. This way people who listen to me on the streaming end can benefit from such a wonderful demonstration. It sounded really nice on my newly obtained C-Quam AM stereo receiver the Sony SRF-A100 that my broadcast engineer friend gave to me. I have a lot of fun listening to the show in C-Quam.
The demonstration may be repeated before winter time when fishing Bay has a garage sale and I will be showing listeners how C-Quam AM Stereo sounds. Some of my listeners we’re lucky to have cars equipped with radios that were compatible with it. There were a lot of people that told me they were not able to hear the stereo separation on AM. I told them they will have to buy a C-Quam AM stereo compatible receiver to hear it in stereo and that was the reasoning for the demo as I have said many times if you’re not hearing stereo your radio is not C-Quam compatible.
Every ninth song I had a promo talking about the radios that were compatible with C-Quam AM stereo. And also gave out the AM stereo. Org website. I’m hoping that this campaign will help to bring back C-quam AM stereo. We will see what happens but there will be much more demonstrations to come.
The next show I’m going to try to come up with over 200 to 300 very Wide Stereo tracks so that it’ll be an entire weekend of C-Quam AM stereo Ultimate Experience. Every single song will have super Wide Stereo in it. This way there’s no doubt if you have a good radio or a bad radio. The ones of course that are mono are the bad radios unless you’re going for distance only to which I have the promo that recommends a Tecsun or other highly sensitive radio and in the promo it says that the discount store radio don’t cut it don’t get caught with AM that sounds like you’re talking through your nose.
It’s an educational demonstration for the listeners as it could help to revitalize AM but if there’s no reason vitalization to it then at least when it becomes a hobby band The listeners will be ready with good receivers. That’s the key.
- <li style=”text-align: center;”>In the Facebook form I love AM radio we are seeing every month dozens of AM stations going completely dark. So as I’ve said this is the Turning of the tide. Let the commercial broadcast stations throw it away as we show the public it can be a good sounding band Only if radio manufacturers in the United States would get off their dead Duff. But thank God there’s always eBay Australia to buy are decent radio from. Some of the sellers will ship to anywhere in the world so that’s the key telling the listeners about eBay Australia and to boycott United States am receivers.
