Complaint to a local broadcaster about intermod/mixing from their AM....  View Printable Version

...and how it was resolved!

Back in January I complained about some really bad intermod and mixing
caused by KOWB 1290 and KHAT 1210.

KOWB 1290 is owned by Townsquare and is 5KW Non D days, 1kw DA nights from
about 1.6 miles away from me. KHAT is 1/4 mile away from them, owned by
Appaloosa Broadcasting with 10kw Days Non D and 1kw Night DA.

I Was getting a really loud, nasty crunchy sounding KHAT on 1370 along with
some some mixing of the two in general in a few other spots on the radio
along with some crackly sounds on the dial. This occurred on my Icom Radio
and big loop antenna at home but also some car radios further north and
away from the tower site.

Thanks to some educated help from a certain local broadcast engineer we
were able to reasonably determine it was KOWB causing the issue and it
wasn't just my radio.

I emailed their regional engineering manager who said he'd look into it
when he was at the station later that month. I didn't hear back from him.

Well, when KOWB's transmitter room got flooded from a burst pipe the
problem went away completely. With them back on but at only 1kw on 1290,
the problem has largely still disappeared

I followed up with the engineer today and he said hes been trying to tune
out the problem and was working on it before the transmitter got ruined.

He says if he can't tune it out, Townsquare will have to purchase a filter.
HE says in this case it was simply KHAT's signal getting into KOWB's
transmitter and re-radting from one of their towers

6145 1900 2200 27E,28NW TAC 100 301-10 418 7=Sat 161119 Deu UZB 16221 A.307

Both signals on similar signal level on both channels here in southern
Germany.

6080.000 Yerevan Gavar ARM 19.20 UT, S=9+20dB or -56dBm on Nov 16
6145.000 Tashkent UZB 19.30 UT, S=9+15dB or -62dBm on Nov 16

6080 20.4 kHz wideband, but audio some BUZZ hit of
audio peaks 50, 100, 150, 200, 250, 300 and 600 Hertz.

6145 in peaks also S=9+20dB -54dBm in southern Germany.

Audio here is my favorite.

Some radioplay heard, everything unknown to me.
The voice actor and the play are not my favorites ... sorry

Hi All,
Just in case anyone had forgotten, Welle 370 has just started its 100kW
broadcast from Yerevan on 6080 kHz at 1900 UTC. A mixture of German and
some English. A slight hum in the background and some QSB here in north
wets England, but not a bad signal.
Alan.

9635 - R.Mali , Bamako , Mali 1718 16 Nov

- Early ,very early , afternoon reception here for this station. Hearing om w/tlk in lang. followed by flute style mx w/ om vocals. Style of mx is very Malian. Signal is poor, S6 , but audio is readable. There is consistent fading and a good amount of QRM. Conakry on 9650 is also putting in a fair signal at this time also.
