Area: The neighborhoods of North
Shirley, Shirley Center, and Woodsville in the town of Shirley,
Massachusetts. Maximum range is 2 miles, but more is possible using
good DX equipment or car radio. (AM range is during daylight
hours only in locations AWAY
from power lines. See map below.) During the most ideal conditions
(daytime - morning - winter - dry weather),
the AM signal can be received on a high quality car radio at "hot
spot" locations over three miles away.
Do you only hear the strongest AM stations on your car radio and the
rest is noise? Chances are your antenna connection is faulty or
corroded. If your vehicle is still under warranty, your dealer
will repair the problem free of charge.
