Radio quality

Why do smaller airports have better radio quality? Bigger airports tend to have more background noise.

Matt-

There are many factors involved with reception quality - it has nothing at all to do with whether the airport is small or large. While you may be able to find examples that make it seem that way, it is not generally true.

The main factors are distance from the airport and installation quality (antenna, coax cable, receiver used, etc).

Hope this helps.

Dave
