We have some good news for those of you with expressed an interest in being able to hear the game broadcasts in the course of home games at Verizon prepaid Center. During Tuesday night’s game against Nashville, all of us ran our final test individuals new low-power FM transmitter in the arena bowl, and also I’m happy to report that test was a huge success. We’ve managed to install a transmitter in the rafters that will fans to hear the radio play-by-play with the game without a time hold up. Starting December 28 against the New york city Rangers, you can bring ones FM radio to the game and listen to the call of the action within your seats. There is no delay to the indicate, unlike our internet stream that can sometimes lag behind.
The games can be found on each of our new FM frequency, at 87.9 FM within the walls connected with Verizon Center. The indicate can be heard within the bowl by itself; although out in the concourse it’ersus likely you will have trouble picking it to your radio. But the concourses happen to be covered with our feed via the shut down circuit TV monitors, consequently hopefully that won’t be considered a huge issue for you. The transmitter is located slightly west of heart ice (very close to Wes Unseld’s banner) and in our tests, we imagine nearly every corner of the area bowl can get the transmission.
In addition, the signal in 87.9 FM can also be used in the course of Wizards games to hear my pal Dave Johnson call encounter. You’ll be able to hear Dork in the arena as well, starting Wednesday against New Jersey.
We’deborah love to hear your opinions about the transmitter moving forward. I hope for both the Capitals and Wizards, having the play-by-play available in your seat makes likely to games an even better experience. My thanks to Gordon Armstrong at Verizon Centre for doing the heavy lifting to make this happen for people.
