    Best Reds Radio Network for your area.

    Check this MAP

    Goto the Radio Locator

    Enter the call sign of stations around your area. Also, remember on the AM band the signals travel farther the lower the number on the dial. But it also has to do how many watts and the station's broadcast pattern. Some patterns are directional.

    Which means a station could be broadcasting 15 miles from you, but if it is not broadcasting in your direction, you will probably have very bad, spotty reception. However, if you are in the stations signal path, you maybe able to get that station clear as a bell 40 miles out.

    Take WBHE 680 AM Newbury/Louisville for example night time pattern..



    The southern part of the signal drops out fast, but the signal to the North is a little stronger.



    WLW is non-directional which means it's signals pretty much travels uniformily outward.


    WLW 700 Cincinnati



    Now here is a sample of Reds Radio coverage in San Diego County...

    I'm firmly in WLW-Land. My parents live in West Virginia and I attended college there. When I lived in both Columbus and Cleveland I listened to Reds baseball on The Big One. I can say for a fact I've never once had to dial up any other station to listen to the Reds.

    In Centerville, Ohio, it's WLW all the way. The transmitter in Mason is barely 20 miles from Centerville. No need to listen to any other station.

    Nothing here in W.NC, those stations up in Tennessee are next to impossible to get.

    Here in Idaho it's WLW or bust.

    I was joking RBA. I've got mlb.tv so I'm covered. This'll be my first season having it, I've used gameday audio for a few years now though just to get my beloved WLW and Marty.

    Usually WLW for me here in Columbus, but occasionally the local station (1230) comes in better so that's what I use.

    During the day, I can barely get a static-filled WLW just north of Akron, but at night, I've gotten WLW all the way to my in-laws driveway in Bath, NY.
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.
