I've finally been able to get the new automation software to function properly and fire audio files at the correct times without conflict.  The new program will offer a superior sound and better listening experience for our listeners.

Installation and testing of the Hamilotn  Rangemaster transmitter will be conducted this week.  If the range still won't exceed two to three blocks from the station, then there is no hope of being able to get a better signal out from this location.  I will simply reinstall the indoor Talking House transmitter and use that to reach a few listeners within the short broadcast radius in Covington.

TECHNICAL INFORMATION

January 1, 2020

The Hamilton Rangemaster test did not yield much better range compared to the indoor antenna with the i.A.M Talking House transmitter.  Unfortunately the technical issues with AM broadcasting from this location are too complex and beyond my capability to fix.  

Since FM broadccasting without a license will onlky result in a couple hundred feet of broadcast range due to the limimtations of this site, it is evident that using just the Talking House and its limited two to three block radius is the best option from this point foward for this station in Covington.

WIMP AM should return to the air this weekend with the indoor antenna.
