Thanks Ken:
Didn't catch that, old age I guess.

I know that doesn't really apply to the problem at hand, but I just wanted to emphasize the importance of that ground connection.
Thanks for that account, it's the first I've heard of that.

You're welcome. I figured it was sort of an oddball circumstance and that maybe another JF member could find the info useful. A simple fix, which I'm sure we all would appreciate every now and again!

What's wrong with AM? How else am I supposed to listen to Boston from Virginia? Or CBS 880 news out of NYC at 0500hrs?
Yea, not much you can do about that 60Hz hum off of power lines, other than get away from them. Those things are designed to transmit electricity but they also radiate a bunch of radio frequency interference [RFI]. Car radios actually have some of the best shielding built in but when you're sitting under a three phase 15K volt line your AM reception is still going to suffer.

I can't contribute and I'm sorry to sorta troll this, but this has some of the best responses I've seen in a while on JF. Especially in regards from some older members putting younger ones in their places.

I'm 25 and I can appreciate some AM radio. If you don't and can't positively contribute then you probably shouldn't be posting. There's a lot of good talk and sports channels on AM radio and if the OP listens to it that's his business and no one should be putting him down over it.

I think Gary Larson (Far Side) was thinking of that joke (truism) when he created this cartoon.
