    WGST comes in decent at night pretty much anywhere ITP, and you can go about 10 miles OTP as well. Beyond that it's hit or miss. YMMV.

    I'm about a mile and a half inside the Perimeter, and I get them weak with a lot of background hiss. Might be my proximity to you know who.

    I was thinking about the old WGST plant which is now WGKA's plant. WGST's 640 plant is the old Air America station (Al Franken & others). Can't remember the callsign. But as I recall I never heard any spots on it.

    No, the old Air America station was 1690, which is now WMLB. They broadcast from Lenox Road and share a tower with 970 and 1190.

    Actually...

    Air America started out on 640 then moved to 1690 when 640 was sold.

    I could see that. For some reason, the power lines along Pleasant Hill and other roads often cause 680 to flood the whole AM dial (except for You Know Who). I wonder if the 680 transmitter off of Spalding is on that part of the grid. My daughter (who is long past her Radio Disney days, as is Radio Disney) has an electronics kit where you can build an AM radio, and the only station it picks up consistently is 680 (being in Gwinnett).

    WGST bought 640 back in the 80s, long before Air America.

    And before that, they were on one of WATB's three towers. WATB (1420) is the old WAVO, and is across from what used to be the Softball Country Club, next to the Perimeter in Scottdale.
