Why not try 1710 AM?
That's possible, although the Causeway TIS is pretty strong on 1700. Also, the field strength rules are slightly different for operation above 1705 kHz; not so much that it matters, but still more complicated. I imagine, though, that we'd get a small
amount more efficiency for our inefficient radiator at that frequency.
In the meantime, KLEB is still off air and I've been able to hear our signal back to our previous limits. We're going to hang in for the time being where we are.
Thanks for the suggestion!
