Where Am I?
Thanks for visiting. This application is currently broken after a software upgrade. I don't anticipate having any time to work on fixing it soon.
“Where am I?”—which really should be called “What am I looking at?”—is a simple Web application to query a copy of the FCC's broadcast facility database for stations near a particular set of geographical coordinates. If you are using an appropriately-equipped smartphone—which is really the motivation for this program—then this page can determine your location automatically. (Some regular Web browsers can also provide a geographic location, if you have enabled that feature and the database they consult is able to identify your IP address, but it will be less accurate.)
Note well: Geographic coordinates in the FCC's broadcast database (CDBS) are currently given in the North American Datum of 1927 (NAD27). GPS coordinates, including those from your phone, are in the World Geodetic System of 1984 (WGS84). Currently, this program attempts to convert between the coordinate systems, but the authors are not entirely convinced that the results are correct. There are also numerous errors in stations' licensed coordinates (either due to the use of coordinates in the wrong datum in a station's application, or due to surveying errors). This is an unofficial secondary source.
