Suggestions for Receiving "High Spirits" over Radio


Transmission of our radioprogram "High Spirits" flows out from the radiotower in patterns called "lobes." The pattern looks like a distorted ameba, with rather long "pseudopods" that are the lobes. For this reason the fifty-thousand watt clear-channel station wcky (1530 am) can be picked up in Georgia, if you are in a lobe. We received one call from Columbus, Georgia. But if you are not, you can be much closer, and still not receive a clear signal.

Moving just a few feet can sometimes place you in one. People have also told us that they can receive the station on one radio and not another. Sometimes, it comes in through a car-radio, but, even in delicious springtime, that might well be too inconvenient.:) Just some stuff that you might want to try.

You can also "audiostream" on your computer at One lady did this, and called, from New Hampshire. We wish you the best of luck, and happy listening!:)
