Response to Re: Clear channels

 

Well it's possible that WBAP beats KFI since much of KFI's signal goes out into the Pacific ocean. But generally the lower the frequency the farer a station will go on AM and KFI has the lowest 50KW channel- although WSM and WFAN aren't much higher. Tower height and soil conductivity are also factors.

But I gave up on AM radio when I moved to Florida. Between all the Caribbean Spanish stations the usual thunderstorm static, AM is a pain down here. AM is pretty much a dying thing anyway- only a few big-city AMs are making any money. Between FM, iPods and the net- AMers are dropping like flies. Got one 2 miles from me that went silent last year. Couldn't pay the power bill. There is a tentative plan to convert the old TV chs 5 & 6 as a new radio band for failing AMs could move to. That might help but the biggest problem is just too much competition these days.
