    Cyclone Radio Network - Waukon/Decorah Question

    Anyone have any experience with the cyclone radio network up in Allamakee county? I'm going to be up there tomorrow night for work (picking corn) and I'm hoping to pick up the game on the radio and not have to rely on streaming from my phone.

    According to the link below, my only chance is 1160 out of Waukon. The field is about 15 miles from Waukon. Am I boned with poor signal or will it reach 15 miles? Does 1160 even exist? Waukon is pretty small and the only radio station I know out of there is 103.5 on main street.

    Any Northern Iowa folks with any insight? Thanks in advance!

    Re: Cyclone Radio Network - Waukon/Decorah Question

    1650 out of Cedar Falls has a decent coverage area, not sure if it goes all the way up there or not though. I would also try the New Hampton and Mason City ones. I doubt they will work but you should at least try.

    I am not familiar with the Waukon station so I can't say what type of signal you will pick up.

    Not a whole lot for options up that way, sorry.

    Can't comment specifically but can beeyatch generally about trying to find cyclone games on the radio in that area. It is even worse during basketball season.

    Re: Cyclone Radio Network - Waukon/Decorah Question

    i pick up 1160 when i am at my parents place (9 miles west of Waukon) and west of Decorah when heading out of town. you should be good unless you are east in the bluff area.

    i believe that was the oldies station that switched over to Fox sports radio. it wasn't that long ago that 103.5 in Waukon carried Iowa State games.


    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver."

    Re: Cyclone Radio Network - Waukon/Decorah Question

    If 1160 doesn't work, try 95.9 fm out of New Hampton. I doubt 1650 from cf will reach you up there as I never get it when I'm at my parents house in Calmar. (about 35 mi southwest of Waukon)

    Thanks for the help everyone. Sounds like 1160 should hopefully work as I'll be to the west of Waukon.
