How To Listen
Listen to KUT with an FM Radio
This map shows the visual horizon from KUT’s antenna. Areas shaded green have an unobstructed view of our antenna and will receive a very strong signal. There will be some signal in the un-shaded areas, but it can be weaker. In some cases, much weaker.
Here is a more representative map of the predicted coverage of KUT’s transmitter over the Austin metro area. The yellow shading represents areas where the signal strength is greater than 70 dBu, which is a very strong signal. This is what the Federal Communications Commission considers a “city-grade” signal. What is interesting in this map are areas where significant obstructions exist. If you live in one of these areas, it is likely you have trouble picking up KUT on clock radios or portable radios, which have less than optimum antennas.
This map shows the predicted coverage at 60 dBu, which is generally considered the listenable area for car radios and radios with outside antennas.
Listen to KUT with an HD Radio™
Because of the lower radiated power, the digital signal covers 60-70% of the area covered by the analog signal.
This map shows the KUT analog transmitter predicted coverage shaded yellow and the KUT-HD predicted coverage shaded green. If you live significantly outside the green shaded areas, you may have trouble receiving KUT-HD. An outside antenna will almost certainly be required.
