Actually, I'm in Cedar Hill, Texas.
Unfortunately, I believe the transmitter for 92.5 (KZPS) is also in Cedar
Hill (there are over a dozen transmitter towers here, since we're the
highest point in N. Texas.), but the 93.3 transmitter is both weaker and
further away. I'm not exactly sure where it is, but I think it's south and
west and I'd guess 30-50 miles away.
Lot's of good suggestions here... I'll try Martin's 'stub filter' method
first, since it seems easiest to implement, however I'm guessing it may be
even more length-critical due to the much lower frequency I'm looking at...
is that correct? Can I use a scope (available) instead of a signal strength
I'm pretty green with this stuff, more acclimated to digital electronics,
but always game to get in there and try not to make things worse than they
already are. ;-)
Thanks again everyone, and Steve, I may email you about the info you
theother_bob at yahoo...
