We always receive lots of interesting comments during our fundraising campaigns, and with our new Classical HQR and HQR news streams, the one that ended Wednesday was no exception. I’m going to address more than one comment by going back to an announcement we made prior to the drive. For listeners who would like to hear Classical HQR on 96.7 but are having difficulty, there is a solution for you – an HD Radio which will pick up the HD2 signal of 91.3.

We’ve been getting some comments and calls this week about Morning Edition sounding distorted at times, especially for Lumberton listeners. Our equipment is working correctly. What many are hearing is a phenomenon known as “tropospheric ducting,” which can play havoc with FM signals. Graduate Fellow Jason Hess discovered a great online resources for “ducting” forecasts. Yesterday's map for Southeastern North Carolina, for example, showed us in a bright orange area, meaning “very strong” to “intense”.

An anonymous long-time friend of the station from Lumberton sent us a generous end-of-year donation along with this note:

Everytime I listen to Diane Rehm, my enthusiasm tends to be dampened. But never mind me. With the exception of my feelings that the station leans more left than it ever has before and is not balanced in certain program choices … the music is non-political and has no ideology, and I enjoy that – so I will donate.

We thank anonymous both for the contribution and the comment.
