Thread: WDRC (AM) relaunches as Trump 103.3 FM

  1. #21
    103.3 is dead here in Wallingford.Unless somebody has their Ipod hooked to a tunable Belkin FM modulator tuned to 103.3 in the Walmart parkinglot. In the meantime its sad to see the AM's clutter up the FM dial with translators.Dont mind if they have their own formatted low power stations.More choices to tune in. Forget DXing anymore on open freqs with the new FM trans station clutter ...

    Too bad WQUN missed the boat with a translator.They had a great format.

    The translator only seems to go out a few miles. I have a hard time picking it up in Newington. (Which is funny they have a big billboard on the Berlin Turnpike and you can't even get the signal there.

    Must be a directional signal north. I picked up 103.3 loud and clear in Enfield a few weeks ago. Going back home on I-84 west from Hartford, I lost it quite a few miles before I got to Southington.

    What would it be protecting to the south? Second-adjacent WDRC-FM?

    There is a deep null to the northwest and a lesser one to the southeast.
    Plugged into the electric radio
