I've found a few interesting radio stations recently - listening / tuning from Kingston, Ontario, CANADA with good radio and simple antenna, over the air:
1. Public Radio from the U.S.
WRVJ 91.7 FM Public Radio from Watertown NY, USA.
"WRVJ (91.7 FM) is a member-supported public radio station in Watertown, New York. Owned by the State University of New York at Oswego, the station simulcasts the programming of WRVO in Oswego, New York"
Main and Sister stations around Northern New York State are:
WRVO 89.9 Oswego (? Main station )
Sister Stations in NY State (broadcast also on):
WRVJ 91.7 Watertown
WRVD 90.3 Syracuse
WRVH 89.3 Clayton
WRVN 91.9 Utica
WRCU 90.1 Hamilton
WSUC 90.5 Cortland
Anyway, I'm receiving the 91.7 FM signal of WRVJ Watertown NY, seems fairly weak, and not so easy to receive in Kingston, because it's close in frequency, adjacent or near some other local signals too.
Makes it kind of difficult to pick out. But able to receive with very good (selective) receiver and antenna adjustment.
Comes in better with an outdoor FM antenna here, high up outside, aimed correctly, and good selective receiver.
Switching good receiver to "Narrow" bandwidth option on the "good" receiver helps a lot here locally in Kingston on this station - esp. when local weak station 91.9 FM CKVI "The Cave" of KCVI high school is on-the-air sometimes during weekdays daytime. "narrow" helps cut out the interference from the upper and lower edges of the received signal. Concentrates more on the center frequency of the received signal.
Anyway - the CONTENT on WRVJ is interesting
. News, information and programming is interesting. Very good.
NPR - National Public Radio news.
PRI - "Public Radio International".
BBC world news at night. Other BBC content and programs usually at night.
International content and news, interesting and informative programs.
Even some CBC Radio 1 / Canadian radio content is offered at times. (Show "Q" from CBC Radio).
If you can get one of these stations, or another "syndicated" one in your area - I'd check that out. Listen in. See if that radio CONTENT is of interest to you.
[ You may be able to listen over the internet
as well - if streamed ]
2. WWCR on Shortwave - Various SW frequencies at various times.
WWCR = World Wide Christian Radio - from Nashville Tennessee.
Four (4) separate 100 KW shortwave transmitters
(that operate on different frequencies at different times - must see their "schedule")
Yes ... a lot of Religious Content - but also some other interesting programming at times.
Like program: Info Wars
Like program: The Power Hour with Joyce Riley.
I seem to get WWCR on 4840 KHz SW a lot - well - at night.
