Interesting........I am pretty sure WKIT's FM feed that broadcasts online
comes from a stereo receiver, however, I am not sure about how WZON-AM is
broadcast online, and especially WZONi (internet only broadcast). I do
know that all three signals come from the same computer. I will try to get
more details on this this weekend if I remember.
