    Default FM from Lake Mille Lacs (Aitkin, MN)

    I see others have done I figured I would too

    While my location is technically Aitkin, MN (mailing address) I am about 16 miles dead south of there on the my results are different than if I was in Aitkin proper. Scanned in my truck using stock equipment at 17:50 CDT

    locals are in BOLD (locals to me are stations I can get on a pocket radio....the nearest station is 22 miles away), Brainerd is approx 30 miles away
    Minneapolis are in italics. They are 93 miles away but the full power ones are mainly Class C or Class C0 100k thundersticks
    The 2 stations in red are not locals as they are based in St Cloud which is 70 miles away but they are both Class C (100kw, 1000 ft towers) so a pocket radio can get it rather easily
    The one in green is 50kw and can be had pretty easily too but again is in St Cloud

    I didn't include ones with lots of static....

    I was fairly close to that area on Monday. A friend of mine and I went to Moose Lake and went ATVing on the Soo Line North Trail. We stopped and had a great burger at the Buckhorn in McGregor.
