WDCB used to run HD. Not sure why they no longer do. They have a blowtorch signal for being a 5k suburban lower end of the dial stick. They are on the Sprint & Verizon broadcast type tower (not cell phone tower) at COD. It is on the West side of the campus along Lampert Rd.
The pocket antenna is kick ass. If it is the picture below, Radio Shack 15-1607, I have a few of them. Used to pair it to a Realistic 2006 scanner in my younger years.
The ICOM is a great radio. I use a Yaesu FT-991A to do HF Fusion (digital) work and a Kenwood 2000X for analog SSB/FM work among other older gear. But I have been plagued with 20 over S9 of noise on most of the HF bands as of late (brutal). I think it is a leaky Comcast line along my house. I need to tackle that but Comcast doesn't understand what "noise" means.
Thanks for sharing.
