It sucks because our transmitter is capable of +/- 15KHz.  We shelf it at +/-6.3KHz now to tradeoff quality for signal strength.  Someday we will be doing C-Quam stereo.  We won't be the first, but we will be happy to join them.  Long live analog!

Tried to adjust volume but accidentally skipped some seconds of the song.  You sure were paying attention to the show!  Good catch!
