    I have always enjoyed while at the game to listen on the radio.
    They claim that 680AM and 106.7FM, but last Thursday game all I was getting was the Brave game on every station I tried 680AM and 106.7FM and 790 AM

    Any suggestions?

    Have not tried it, but they claim the gameday app on your I phone carries it

    Gameday app worked great, use that. I listened to the post game on the drive home.

    Gameday app was at least 60 seconds behind though. At least mine was.

    It's 2nd down and they were just talking about the kickoff. And it stayed that way the whole game for me.

    Braves have priority over Tech everytime. If Braves are on, try 98.9

    Never tried in stadium, but it was 98.9 FM last week.

    Tomorrow, it'll be on 680/93.7 and will move to 98.9 at 6p.

    Had the exact same problem. Finally got the broadcast using an Internet Radio app. The radio situation is horrendous and we alumni and fans deserve a lotter better than we are getting.

    As two different people pointed out before you, the game was on 98.9.

    But I agree, we should try to figure out how to get top billing on some station or another.

    Same here. Sound quality was great. But the delay was disconcerting.

    The Georgia Tech Game Day app is the only way to go if you do not have satellite or cable to watch it. With the Game Day app there are zero issues with reception as with the radio stations.

    You can listen to games, call-in shows, press conferences, etc...and no cost.

    Last week I was driving on I-10 during the Paul Johnson call-in show and just plugged my phone into my car stereo, instead of using the speaker phone, and it worked like a charm.

    This is exactly why GT launched the Game Day app at zero cost to anyone.

    Perfect receptions anywhere you are at on your phone or on your pc/mac....and with the same Brandon Gaudin/Sean Bedford broadcast.

    Jesus, you would think a 60 second delay is the end of the world. It's a free app people with perfect sound clarity.

    Agreed...a 60 second delay is meaningless unless you are at the game....and then why would you need it.

    If you are listening to our announcers on it while watching tv then you simply pause your tv and hit play when in sync.

    We are Tech people right?

    If you're in the stands, you don't get things like injury updates. So listening to the broadcast does help in several regards.

    Hey, the app is great - good live stats and the sound quality is top notch. My ohly qualm is with the live broadcast delay. The app as a whole is good and overdue
