Sources of Noise
If you are experiencing noisy reception, it may be helpful to identify sources of noise and static that interfere with AM radio reception.
Likely sources of noise within the listeners home include:

During the period from local sunset to sunrise, especially during winter months, it is possible that distant stations also operating on the same frequency as WDMC (920 MHz) may interfere with reception of WDMC. This type of interference usually occurs only if the listener is some distance from WDMC. To minimize or eliminate this type of interference, rotate your AM radio or external directional AM antenna to improve reception.
WDMC may be heard online by clicking on the Listen Live icon at the top of this page.
