From time to time, we receive a request
from a listener asking what can be done to improve their reception of our FM
signal. While the specific recommendations will vary, the following are some
generalizations which may help if you are experiencing reception difficulty.
It must be remembered that the process
of delivering sound from a radio studio to your ears involves a complete
system. This includes the station's transmitter and antenna, the
listener's receiver and antenna and the transmission path between
the two. This last is important because if there is a mountain between the
transmitter and receiver, there is nothing that can be done to provide good
WLNT's transmitting system is maximized to operate at the maximum allowed
power and to deliver the best signal over our licensed area(s). Steps
to improving your reception should start with your antenna.
If your receiver is a stereo component or console, there should be a pair of
screw terminals on the back marked "FM antenna" or something
similar. If nothing is connected to these terminals, you
need an antenna!!!An antenna may be as simple as
an inexpensive "twin-lead dipole" which can be purchased at most
electronic or builder's supply stores. This will only be effective in the
primary coverage area of the station, about 12 miles or so from the
transmitter. A 3-4 foot piece of speaker wire is better than
nothing. Ordinary TV "rabbit ears" will work reasonably well
in this area as well. For fringe-area reception, an outside antenna
similar to a TV antenna is required. In fact, some TV antennas can be used
for FM reception. Connecting an FM receiving antenna to the antenna input of
the FM receiver and aim the antenna toward the WLNT transmitter. A good outside
FM antenna (called a Yagi, after its inventor) can be purchased at most
consumer electronic stores. Radio Shack lists several good
antennas in their website (catalog number15-2163).
Also, sensitive portables such
as those manufactured by GRUNDIG or the GE SuperRadio
are available which can be surprisingly effective. We
recommend the GE SuperRadio which is available on Ebay or from Amateur
Electronic Supply: firstname.lastname@example.org or
Euclid Ave, Cleveland, OH 44092 800-321-3594 or 440-585-7388.
Also, you can improve reception by keeping your radio,
antenna and receiver away from noise generating electronic devices. Many
newer devices have microprocessor circuits that induce "noise" onto
the FM radio band that makes all reception worthless. Several examples
of devices to avoid are listed here: CD
Players; Computers; Computer Monitors; Cable or Satellite boxes; VCR's; TV's;
Electronic Games; Touchlamps; Neon Lights; Credit Card Machines; Cash
Registers; Wireless Routers; Dimmer Switches for lighting; & yes...Gas Pumps!
