What

is the Youngstown Radio Reading Service?

Operating over the SCA (sideband) of WYSU-FM, the Youngstown Radio Reading Service (YRRS) is a private, non-profit station serving the print impaired. The YRRS broadcasts print materials which are not otherwise accessible to its listeners. Programming includes in-depth coverage of local newspapers along with readings from magazines, and best-selling books presented in series. Talk shows and special interest programs encourage listeners to share experiences, exchange views, and gain knowledge. Specially tuned radios are provided free of charge to qualified listeners. These services are provided in Mahoning, Trumbull, Columbiana and

Ashtabula

Counties, as well as areas of western Pennsylvania. Operations are funded through the eTech Ohio Commission, the

United Ways
of both Mahoning and

Trumbull

Counties, Lions Clubs, underwriting of programs by businesses and individuals, private donations and Goodwill's operation.

Who are the Print Impaired?

The vast majority of the YRRS audience is visually impaired. Other people who qualify include those with physical impairments, such as stroke or multiple sclerosis. The final category of eligibility is learning disabilities, such as dyslexia.

Are you qualified?
Do you know someone who is qualified?

To find out if you or someone you know qualifies, please call the YRRS at 330.759.0100.

How does it work?

In addition to the YRRS staff, more than 120 volunteers make it possible for the YRRS to broadcast 12 hours a day, Monday through Saturday. Volunteers are mainly responsible for reading the various materials for broadcast, but are also involved in many other functions which are crucial to the stations operations. These other tasks can include distribution of receivers, transportation, and coordinating and training new volunteers. If you would like to help and are interested in volunteering, please call YRRS at 330.759.0100.

XM vs. Sirius Radio: which is better?

A few weeks back I had the opportunity to drive a rented car that had XM radio, and I have to admit that while I loved the variety, I was shocked by the quality of the fidelity. Their music channels sounded no better than AM, and their talk stations sounded like internet radio over a 28K telephone line, circa 1998. (And no, the problem wasn't the sound system in the car - regular FM sounded just fine.) My guess is that they are just trying to compress too many channels into too little bandwidth. Is Sirius any better, or do they both offer crappy sound?
