changing to AC tine cord operation. If the sound quality improves the
batteries are run down and should be replaced with new batteries.

AM Band radio stations are assigned broadcast frequencies between 540 and
1700 Kilohertz (KHz). AM transmissions leave the antenna in two types of radio
waves - ground waves and sky waves. Ground waves stay close to the ground
and can be picked up by receivers in the local area. Sky waves go into the sky
and pass thru the ionosphere into outer space. Some sky waves have a tenden-
cy to "bounce" back from the ionosphere (especially during the evening hours)
and can be picked up by distant receivers.
