The FM band is the mostly widely listened to band, more than 75% of radio listeners are listening to 88-108 Mhz. The most attractive reason is its high quality stereo sound, and its great resistance to spark interference, such as lightning and florescent light hum. FM stations usually service between 20-100 miles, depending on wattage and transmitter antenna height. Occasionally a rare phenonmenum called sporadic reception or skip occurs, which can bring in a station from as far as 2,000 miles. Notice below stations from St.Louis and Texas. This type of long distance reception is very rare and is noted by (*skip). Another type of long distance radio reception called troposheric ducting, which is also rare, but when it does occur it brings you a look into a whole other citys radio. Rare long-range sporadic reception of this type is noted with (* troposphere duct). This type of propagation can occur any time of the year, but most often occurs during the summer, and is greatest during high sunspot periods. Tropospheric ducting brings in stations such as: WYHY (107.5), WSIX (97.9), and WLAC (105.9) all from Nashville, TN on almost a daily basis during the summertime. Other stations such as WQLT (107.3) from Florence/Muscle Shoals, AL also comes by the way of troposheric ducting.

All radio stations listed below were received within Cobb County, GA (most at a location 5 miles east of Town Center Mall) between 1987 and 2009 with Call letters or non-ids verified. If interested in DXing the FM band, you can get more information on where stations originate from www.fcc.gov or you may want to purchase a book containing complete info about broadcasting stations, such as FM Atlas by Bruce F. Elving (from FM Atlas Publishing, PO Box 336, Esko MN, 55733-0336), or the M Street Radio Directory , (edited Robert Unmacht from M Street Corporation, 54 Music Square East, Suite 201, Nashville, TN 37203, ã 2000.

98.1 KNRJ (K257CD/K292DF) Payson-Pheonix-Flagstaff,AZ pirate?? {CLASSIC HIP HOP} "927 & 993 the Beat"
This station has a strong, but irregular signal and sometimes follows the online stream but not always. Definately a Pirate, not original signal, because of regular occurance and most notably: not one of the callsigns or translators are licensed on this frequency. Interesting new Radio Format.

98.1 ???? Holly Springs,GA?? pirate?? {Dance-CHR} "Energy-98-FM" (maybe the same as 98.9?)

98.9 ???? PIRATE? Marietta, GA {Dance-Techno-CHR-Party Radio} "Energy 98" "NE Marietta's Party Station" pirate??
This station is probably the same broadcaster as the 97.9 and 101.9 Marietta Pirate entries as the music is of similar style.
The "NE Marietta's Party Station" statement was also used with Wild Variety PowerTunes 101.9 Radio Station in the late 1990's during dance programming on the weekends.

and current dance and R&B tracks. Very heavy in 70s Disco music, no techno or Eurodance
(but with such a different format, that introduction would be a gradual introduction).
May be a temporary format until switchover to Christmas Format.
