2-Day [yes, TWO] Drive Raises $65,085

WOW!

seems to be the most apt word for the events of Tuesday, July 22nd. When we began, after a somewhat slow first day, it was hard to see how we could finish this summer's Keep It Short drive in even 3 days, let alone 2. The sudden $20,000 pledge at 6:57 am transformed everything and led to a very satisfying next 12 hours.

Is Your Morning Edition Sounding Fuzzy? You May be Hearing 'Ducting.'

Duct not Duck
Stock

We have been getting quite a few comments from listeners concerning signal issues during recent broadcasts of Morning Edition. What listeners are hearing is the natural phenomenon of "tropospheric ducting." While tropospheric propagation 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.
