Check to see what stations you can pick up in different locations using the menu at the left! These lists include all stations that reach the location in question, not just those that target programming to that area. If you're looking for a listing of stations serving a particular market, check the links for Radio Markets and TV Markets in the state/province pages of this site. Please conact me at JonEllis@NorthPine.com if you notice any errors; with so many pages, a format or ownership change is easy to miss! Below are the criteria for listings on the dial guides:



AM and FM Stations:

Signal strength will vary due to topographic and atmospheric conditions, as well as the radio used. Typically, car radios, home stereos with external FM antennas, and high-quality AM radios should be able to receive all of the stations listed. Many lower-cost portable radios may only be able to receive the stations with three or more signal strength bars. Intermodulation of local FM stations may also prevent reception of distant FM signals. AM reception is severely limited by interference from electrical systems, TV's, computer monitors, and fluorescent light bulbs.

Excellent
Good
Fair
Poor
Weak


TV Stations:

"City grade" signals are easily received on all TV's, while "grade B" signals require a rooftop antenna. (Keep in mind that low-power stations may only provide a city grade signal for a portion of the community in question. A city grade signal is listed if the stations' transmitter is located in the community, even if the entire community does not receive a city grade signal.)

City Grade
Grade A
Grade B

AM and FM dial guides for other locations can be found through Radio-Locator.com or FM Fool. TV dial guides can be found using TV Fool.
