ESPN 980's transmitter is in Hyattsville, whereas 106.7's transmitter is in Merrifield, VA (Beltway and Route 50). Even so, the AM wavelength is longer than FM, so while it tends to be weaker, AM's signal is further reaching.

Yeah, it has to do with the different signals broadcasting around the area at that end of the frequency. Between 106.5 (Baltimore), 106.9 (Hagerstown/Frederick) and 107.3 (DC), there are many strong FM signals that can wreak havoc. Once you get north of 370/124 in Gaithersburg, 106.7 is a crapshoot...

Re: 106.7 The Fan

Wish they would move over to one of CBS's other stronger signals like 99.1...

also, I wonder if Lavar will start doing the show from his resturant

Didn't Lavar's restaurant close?

Really? Well then, I stand corrected. I thought it had gone bankrupt and shut down.

Re: 106.7 The Fan

Screw Lavar, Assclown doesn't serve any air time. The only sports radio show worth listening is into the night with Tony Bruno even if he's an Eagles fan.

Bruno is a douche from way back to when he was on WIP in Philly

Re: 106.7 The Fan

I've been out of the country for about a month so I only got to listen to the new 106.7 station for two days. Obviously, this is merely a first impression:


1. The Junkies' act is the same as it has always been. Generally good, sometimes brilliant, sometimes horrid.

2. Mike Wise needs help on the air. Let's just say he isn't a natural for radio. He's a smart guy and can probably pick it up, but right now he needs a pro on the air with him to keep the show from getting bogged down into long ruminations about his dog. Wise has promise but needs someone there to act as his "training wheels" for a while...

3. After one hour of Lavar/Chad, I don't think I'll be tuning in for much more.

Re: 106.7 The Fan

So far so good as far as I'm concerned with Lavars radio show. After all, he played the game and knows a lot of the current Redskins.
The Junkies? A bunch of nerds who have very little interest in the Redskins and know about as much about football as anybody else on this board.. If I want to hear about so and so in dallASS or some other NFL city, I'll listen to ESPN radio.
Just my opinion.

I like the vs. Dan Snyder format. I'm a fan of radio battles.

LaVar is terrible but since he is the name brand I don't mind so much that he lacks radio speaking prowess. (The first week he was using the term "heir apparent" to describe the abundance of air in overthrown balls from QBs to WRs....wow, just bad.)

I'd like to listen to some hate radio too if things don't work out with Malcom Kelly and he keeps sustaing injuries that keep him out of the lineup.

Re: 106.7 The Fan

I wonder if Kornheiser will end up going directly up against Wise?
