    Exclamation 4/22 Update S/C NJ (Philly/NYC mostly)

    (See post #12 below)

    The following stations are running IBOC as of 7-11-05 that I can hear...

    None in the non-comms are running it at this hour; however I have heard some broadcast it before.

    92.5 WXTU Philadelphia, PA
    95.7 WBEN Philadelphia, PA
    95.9 WRAT Point Pleasant, NJ
    98.9 WUSL Philadelphia, PA
    102.1 WIOQ Philadelphia, PA
    102.9 WMGK Philadelphia, PA
    104.5 WSNI Philadelphia, PA
    105.3 WDAS Philadelphia, PA
    106.1 WJJZ Philadelphia, PA

    Luckily all except WRAT are NW of me, so coastal trop is not impacted here.
    Unfortunately in trop and even semi-normal conditions I have heard IBOC from NYC, Baltimore, and DC...

    Default IBOC in SNJ/Phila

    WRDW-96.5 had it, stopped some months ago. WXPN-88.5 tested it 7/1 for a while in the afternoon, haven't heard anything since.

    Exclamation IBOC Update 9-17-05

    An update as of 9-17-05, unfortunately more have added it since July, however the good news is that they aren't making much of an impact here at 50 miles (for the most part).

    90.1 WRTI Philadelphia, PA
    92.5 WXTU Philadelphia, PA (Was off for a few months sporadically)
    95.7 WBEN Philadelphia, PA
    95.9 WRAT Point Pleasant, NJ
    98.9 WUSL Philadelphia, PA
    102.1 WIOQ Philadelphia, PA
    102.9 WMGK Philadelphia, PA
    103.9 WPPZ Jenkintown, PA (Barely)
    104.5 WSNI Philadelphia, PA (Goes off at times)
    105.3 WDAS Philadelphia, PA
    106.1 WJJZ Philadelphia, PA

    As for distant's... trop this past few months has pulled in DC, Baltimore, Norfolk, NYC, and Hartford IBOC stations... which has caused problems.

    Hopefully those few new ones are due to the NAB convention next week, which afterwards they'll shutoff again... but who knows.

    Default 1/6 Phila area IBOC Update

    One update. I noticed recently that WHYY-90.9 now appears to have IBOC up and running. Like WRTI-90.1, however, WHYY's IBOC is a bit less difficult to work with - moderate tropo seems to cut through....

    WRDW-96.5 continues without IBOC activated.

    88.1 WUWF Pensacola, FL started up IBOC this week.
    At 100kw and 21 miles west of me it's pretty bad. 88.3 and 87.9 are totally trashed now. No more Guatemalan pirate radio to be heard on my tuner unless Es gets to record strength!
    IBOC...Argg.
