Re: A Radio Rodeo

Your shootouts are always informative and interesting. Do the totals for the Insignia pocket radios include HD sub-channels, or just the main stations?

Haven't had much luck with FM Dx here in the Pacific Northwest, apart from the (very occasional) tropo openings; maybe I'll give it a try this summer with one of those new radios.

That is a lot of stations for that part of northern VT, and
I like your long list of radios too! - FARMERIK

Welcome to a FM ULR Rodeo!

All radios were tested 11am to 2pm on the same day
from the same location. Each receiver was coupled directly
or inductively to an external FanFare FM26 omni-directional
FM antenna.

Location: We live in a small housing development on
top of a high ridge that overlooks Lake Memphremagog here in
Northern Vermont, very near the Canadian border. The
location of this ridge gives us a 360 degree view of the far
horizon, so it is ideal for FM dxing.

Concerning my test results: As the rodeo clowns say
here: "your results may vary and watch where you step."
