Water Problems

It has been over a year since the installation of my outdoor ground mounted AM transmitter and, until today, there have been no problems when it was discovered that the transmitter was off the air...not a weak signal but no signal at all.

New Range Results for AM Ground Mounted System

I have previously reported a listenable range on a truck radio for my ground mounted AM system system as being 1 mile with fading at 1.3 miles. Today, while on an errand, I checked range again and it was solid listenable out to 1.8 miles on my truck radio and could be heard with flutter and noise 2.3 miles away (that's as far away that I drove). Though this is impressive for a part 15 AM system the actual range for in home listeners is not known but it is most probably much less.
