Tips For Best Reception
Rock 100's transmitting system is optimized to operate at the maximum allowed power and to deliver the best signal over our licensed area. Steps to improving your reception should start with your antenna. If your receiver is a stereo component or console, there should be a pair of screw terminals on the back marked "FM antenna" or something similar. If nothing is connected to these terminals, you need an antenna! An antenna may be as simple as an inexpensive "twin-lead dipole" which can be purchased at most electronic supply stores. This will only be effective in the primary coverage area of the station (immediate Athens area). A 3 to 4 foot piece of speaker wire is better than nothing. Ordinary TV "rabbit ears" will work reasonably well in this area as well. For fringe-area reception, an outside antenna similar to a TV antenna is required. In fact, some TV antennas can be used for FM reception. A good outside FM antenna (called a Yagi, after its inventor) can be purchased at most consumer electronic stores. Sensitive portables such as those manufactured by GRUNDIG or the GE SuperRadio are available which can be surprisingly effective. Also, you can improve reception by keeping your radio, antenna and receiver away from noise generating electronic devices. Many newer devices have microprocessor circuits that induce "noise" onto the FM radio band. Several examples of devices to avoid are: CD Players; Computers; Computer Monitors; Cable or Satellite boxes; VCR's; TV's; Video Game Consoles; Touchlamps; Neon Lights; Credit Card Machines; Cash Registers; Wireless Routers; Dimmer Switches for lighting; and Gas Pumps. To avoid interference, you should avoid placing your radio receiver in close proximity to these devices.

Progressive Talk Radio
Are you burned out on conservative talking heads like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity? Rock 100 offers a positive alternative to the blowhards that are so prevalent on mainstream talk radio. We are committed to sharing with Athens the best progressive talk shows from across the Nation. Our progressive talk radio coverage begins everyday at 7 AM. A couple of our favorite shows are:
Between The Lines is a weekly syndicated half-hour news magazine featuring progressive perspectives on national and international political, economic and social issues. Because Between The Lines is independent of all publications, media networks or political parties, the producers are able to bring a diversity of voices to the airwaves. This award-winning program provides a platform for individuals and organizations generally ignored or marginalized in corporate media.
The Shortwave Report is a 30 minute review of foreign news broadcasts originating from around the world. The broadcasts originally aired in their native lands via shortwave radio.
