This WebSite is NOT intended to be a complete encyclopedia, listing ALL facilities in any city or region, but rather,
the material selected is solely determined by interest of the author. To the best of my knowledge the data is correct,
but is not all inclusive.
The database is a work in progress
Each page contains six Posters. The Posters are historic photos with relevant text added.
The individual Posters can be enlarged and/or downloaded by "clicking" on the image.
Behind the Call Letters
A list of many of the Call Letters used in this database, and the stories behind them. Sorted by state.
You can search the DataBase on any of 5 choices, including multiple choices. These are Call Letters,
Location, Date, Threads or Global Search. The Global Search is for text that is contained
in the Information/text portion of the DataBase.
You may also DOWNLOAD the entire database and work offline.
This page contains a series of, text only, articles. Articles obtained from various sources.
This page is dedicated to CLASSIC TEST PATTERNS from yesteryear.
If you are a frequent visitor to this site...this should be your first stop. You will find what has been updated and when.
This is a "catch all" page. Listing updates, background info, and whatever else.
I would appreciate comments on the site as well as erroneous information, and defective or missing links.

I'm interested in FM and not necessarily APEX stations. Some stations have an earlier start date than is shown in
the database. For APEX stations, I suggest you check the Jeff Miller site.
