So 870 comes in pretty poor here in Laffy, is there another station that broadcasts the Saints games that comes in better in Lafayette? Doesn't seem like 870 is as powerful as they claim.

I get it pretty decent out here in Saint Martinville and for the most part in Lafayette(the parts i'm usually in close the University), although not on Kaliste Saloom(but I usually never go there much) it just has lots of static...I usually switch back and forth from 1420 and 870.....but yes the signal isn't the strongest and I find it comes in better in the evenings...

WWL hasn't been the same since Katrina. I used to be able to listen to it pretty much anywhere once the sun went down. Not so anymore.

Well, here in Louisville, I can listen this time of year starting at about 6:30pm est which means I only miss the first 30 minutes of sports talk when I'm working. It's the only thing about the winter I like. Comes in real well

For me I can pick it up great on my rinky dink radio in the house its just my car antenna must not be working well......It works for the most part but then in some area it will just go out, always seems like right at a good part or the part you really want to hear....:no:

Yeah, WWL's reception in Lafayette is poor. I don't know enough about radio or electronics to know the reasons. But we seem just close enough to New Orleans not to benefit from whatever increases the station's range at night and just far enough away to get a weaker reception than does Baton Rouge or Houma. Plus, all the overhead utility wires in Lafayette hurt reception.

That explains it, I live off of Kaliste and its all static here. I am really just looking for a local station or maybe a BR station that plays the 870 broadcast of Saints games that would come in clear.
