    Radio coverage

    Listened to the game today driving back to DSM from IC and
    the radio coverage was great. Listened to 1600 to around Grinnell
    still had good reception but wanted to switch to FM and the Bus
    came in strong.

    101.1 has a good singal that direction also.

    1600 has done better with their signal over the last couple of years...that being said after dark it goes down fast.

    Yes I would. Maybe it was because of the daylight but
    I usually hit a blackhole between Newton and Williamsburg.

    I listened to 960 KWMT in Ft Dodge from Kansas City (over 200 miles). Reception was much better than the game.

    No - I don't want a cookie.

    Our radio coverage is lousy other than during the daytime with 540 or 1600. At night nothing comes in.

    I usually listen to games on 101.1 but they haven't been on this year. Any idea why? It's the only station I get consistently on all my FM radios (including my phone).
