Tropo Halifax, NS and Wilmington, DE <=> Providence, RI

Post by NECRAT »

Right now I can listen to
99.5 WJBR out of Wilmington, DE., and go to 103.5 and hear Z103.5 "The Beat of Halifax". CKHZ.

Needless to say the conditions are good.

Wahooo! The Beat is one of the two or three stations in town that I listen to - what can I say, I've got a teenager ;)

With any luck I'll be listening to it tomorrow night - 10 days on the road and I'm about ready to head home for a week or two before Philly :D

Everytime I have flown out of Boston's Logan International at about 1000' over Boston Harbor appearing immediately were WSTW @93.7 and WJBR @ 99.5 with killer signals that totally overlaid now WEEI-FM @ 93.7 and now WCRB @ 99.5.
When flying to Florida these signals were good to Eastern North Carolina. I don't know for sure but always suspected both Wilmington stations had very high gain antennas possibly 8 bays or more to put such an intense signal out that far to the horizon. Both Boston stations have 4 bay antennas with lots of raw power.
