Listeners to classical music starting this week with Pat Marriott and Jemila Ericson will hear our morning classical music from our newly-revamped Classical Studio 3. The music from 9 am to 1 pm will be simulcast on both 91.3fm and HD, and on HD2.

You May be Hearing 'Ducting.' http://whqr.org/post/your-morning-edition-sounding-fuzzy-you-may-be-hearing-ducting <p>We have been getting quite a few comments from listeners concerning&nbsp;signal issues during recent broadcasts of Morning Edition. What listeners are hearing is the natural phenomenon of "tropospheric ducting." While tropospheric propagation&nbsp;can do some really cool stuff to radio signals (like bounce them from very, very far away), it mostly just mixes distant signals broadcasting at the same frequency. That's no fun and can result in lot of static or just bad noise.&nbsp;</p> Thu, 19 Jun 2014 20:51:04 +0000 Jason Hess 56796 at http://whqr.org Is Your Morning Edition Sounding Fuzzy?
