Welcome to Bill's Ultimate TIS Digest
The only place you need to go to for accurate TIS information. Hosted by
TIS Enthusiasts, bookmark this site.
This site is a labor of love and is dedicated to all
DXers interested in TIS's and HAR stations. I have been interested in travelers
information stations (TIS's) and highway advisory radio (HAR) Stations
(collectively called TIS after this) since the early '70's when I heard
my first TIS in western Montana at a rest stop along I-90. The station
was audible only in the rest stop parking lot. I don't know for sure, but
I believe this was even before the FCC and the NTIA started licensing TIS's.
Unfortunately, there is a dearth of information about TIS's on the Internet.
The purpose of this site is to share information about TIS's and to make
it available to DXers through the Internet. This site features the FCC
Database of local government TIS's, a list of federally operated TIS's,
unlisted TIS's, and a list of Canadian TIS. Unfortunately, as pointed out
by a few DXers, these databases are not perfect. In my experience, no TIS
database is perfect. However, there is nothing better on the Internet.
Rather than dismiss these databases as not useful (they really are) we
hope that TIS chasers/DXers will help each other by making these database
even better. YOU CAN HELP BY CONTRIBUTING TO THE TIS DIGEST NEWSLETTER
These lists are freely distributed for non-commercial use by TIS DXers
as an aid to help them identify loggings. Just be sure to mention where
you got the information. If you find this site useful or if you have any
comments or criticisms, please drop us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org
DX Editors please note:
You are in a very good position to help make the information in this database
more accurate. Please feel free to use the information at this site to
double check TIS loggings submitted to your column or page.
