Having trouble hearing WPDH on 106.1?

Sullivan County classic rock fans have reported trouble listening to their favorite radio station.

While many people in the Hudson Valley are familiar with 101.5 WPDH, some may not be aware that the Home of Rock and Roll also broadcasts on a second FM frequency. In areas north of Middletown through Sullivan County, WPDH can be heard on 106.1. The simulcast fills a radio “dead zone” that is struggling to receive a strong signal on 101.5.

Unfortunately, some WPDH listeners in Sullivan County recently had trouble connecting to 106.1. If you’ve noticed that WPDH no longer comes through clearly at 106.1 on your radio, you can help fix the problem. Just send a quick email to the Program Director of WPDH at [email protected] Be sure to document where you were when you had trouble logging in and what time of day it was.

Temporary problems such as solar flares, inclement weather, and other atmospheric conditions can cause reception problems, but ongoing problems with a radio station’s broadcast could be more serious issues requiring further investigation. Interference from unlicensed radio operators, poorly shielded electronic equipment, or other radio stations operating at too much power can cause you to suddenly lose reception of local broadcasts. In these situations, documentation of radio listeners is necessary to identify and resolve the problem.

In the meantime, WPDH can still be heard through the free mobile app which allows listeners in poor reception areas to hear the station in crystal clarity. If you are having trouble receiving The Home of Rock and Roll on your radio, be sure to let us know and try streaming online until the problem is resolved.
