Here’s my new coverage map with my AM signal on 1630 with a Sangean PR-D6 with and without the Grundig loop in the daytime.
Red circle is just the radio(strong signal) and wider area is with the loop.
Arrow points to my house. The block from corner to corner on my street is 500ft approx. so use this as distance guide. The distance scale is at bottom right on picture.
Using the Talking Sign transmitter(Procaster predecessor) indoors and 3 meter antenna. Talking Sign is certified part 15 and RSS-210 Canada.
At night my coverage goes down to about 150-200 ft away from house then is lost.

I’m perplexed about the reference “Procaster predecessor”. I’m not aware of any connection, even slightly between the Talking House transmitters of the USA and the Procasters made and sold from Canada. To my knowledge the Procaster has always been made as an outdoor mounted transmitter designed more for “broadcasting” while the Talking House literally started out as a transmitter for use in homes for sale to broadcast to cars parked outside of the house. I’ve never seen any connection between the two.
I get substantially better coverage with a Procaster, but then again that most certainly is in part due to my location in a tiny town with a very low noise floor on the AM band.

In fact, the ProCaster (at least the original ones) used multiple parts from the Talking Sign, including the meters.June 7, 2020 at 4:05 pm #115130MarkModerator

The Talking Sign, not to be confused with the Talking House which you are thinking of was made in Canada by the same company that makes the Procaster before it was replaced by the current one you are using now.
