I was driving on the WEST side of Las Vegas and heard the Oldies playing on FM 93.7 once again. This was on 9/3/11, Saturday afternoon and night.
I had a couple of stops to make and put on 75 miles driving around in the Las Vegas valley. The signal from the mystery signal playing oldies was the very strongest -loud and clear lighting the stereo light on my FM car radio at the intersection of CHARLESTON & DURANGO. If you are familiar with the Las Vegas area, there is a big red broadcasting tower standing in a field or behind businesses nearby. If I remember correctly, this may be a tower from an AM station. Could it be possible that they are operating a low power FM signal from this broadcast tower?
It is interesting that the signal, very weak most times
, covers almost the entire Las Vegas valley area. That makes me almost convinced that the signal is eminating from the tower. If you are line of sight or above the terrain -- in the foothills, where homes are, the signal comes in. If not, like in the lower Henderson area along Boulder Hwy or 95 heading south to Boulder City... no signal- zip - nada.
I'm wondering if the tower is one of the AM stations -- 1460 (the old KENO) or 1410 (KSHP) or 1340 (KRLV)
Maybe somebody out there has a clue.
