1500 is BAD!!!!

15 posts in this topic

The signal is weak and the commercials before the game go on for 15 minutes. I work in Eagan and I can harldy get a signal. I hope 1500 continues it's fall in ratings so it has to drop the Twins and they can go back to CCO where they belong. I'm already sick of the Reusse's bit commericals and we haven't finished the 1st week.

Toughguy...try 105.9 from RedWing...you should be able to pick that up in Eagan. Also there is a Twins radio listing out there. When the 35w bridge went out, 1500 didn't have the game on, so I listened to a southern MN station, can't remember if it was Faribault or New Ulm.

I've listened 830 in Michigan and Montana. I don't think you can get 1500 in after dark across the street from their tower.

I listened to their new 9-noon guys for about 30 seconds. Ouch. It's like PA with a laugh track.

We were spoiled by 830, but even then, there were times when I had to find another station, or they had a broadcast that they considered more important...like a rain shower. crazy

I work nights. and had to buy the MLB audio subsrciption, so I can get the twins on the computer at work. its not that bad, only 15 bucks a year, plus I can listen to any game thats on.

I am lucky on the weekends when I am at the cabin, aitkin has has a station that broadcasts on FM.

The Twins are the reason I have satelite radio in my truck. KSTP 1500 has a weak signal in my opinion and I hate trying to surf up and down the dial searching for some small town radio station that I will be able to pick up for the next 20 miles.

I also enjoy hearing the other teams announcers for the road games. Not that I don't like the local team. Its just interesting hearing other people's opinions of the Twins and their players.

KNOP-

is this something I can find on MLB.com??/ down in IOWa- both 830 and 1500 suck,, but 1500 is worse-- and it's all I got at night. 570AM outta Yankton comes in clear as a bell as long as it is not dark.

Wouldn't you know it, the only real sports talk radio in town (Des Moines) picks up the Royals this year and they are bragging about it, when a guy can allready get them outta several stations coming outta N.MO.

    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
