Re: Old cable lineups

This is, I believe, one of the newest cable lineups in this thread. This is from the second-most-recent Toledo Blade to have been archived by Google. This is probably incomplete though.

Re: WBNX says "So Long!" to The CW

For now, they will probably just throw in other syndicated programs in the 8-10 spot. Or maybe Ernest brings "The 90 and 9 Club" back to 9 PM? ;) According to WBNX's official July 16 schedule, the 8-10 timeslots will be occupied by reruns of The King of Queens and Funny You Should Ask .

Re: Pirate Radio Station in Dearborn, MI

Yeah, that would be WLFM-LP on VHF 6... it operates as an FM radio station for Cleveland... at 3 kW, it actually gets out impressively far.... One thing I don't understand though is if it was indeed WLFM, why couldn't I pick up in Wyandotte, which is closer to Lake Erie, yet I could in southwest De...

Re: Then, there's this.....

WXYZ's audio currently sounds more akin to a phone conversation. This is most likely a technical difficulty, but this is ironic in a way, as that was how network audio sounded like on WXYZ before satellites.

Re: Pirate Radio Station in Dearborn, MI

Also managed to pull up something in my car on 87.7 FM in southwest Detroit near Fort Wayne at Jefferson and Livernois. I believe it sounded like a Spanish format. By the time I was driving on 3rd Street near the Yack Arena in Wyandotte, there was nothing on 87.7 FM.

Multiple subchannels off the air

WXYZ's Bounce and Laff subchannels and WMYD's Escape subchannel are all showing a black screen. This has been happening for almost the past half-hour. This is, BTW, through antenna reception. Their main subchannels, plus WMYD's Antenna TV subchannel, are fine. Is this happening to anyone else? UPDAT...

Re: Network programming preemptions by individual stations

WDIV is airing their usual summer fireworks show right now. NBC programs have been relocated to Me TV 4.3. Apparently that has replaced WADL as the station that shows NBC programs preempted by WDIV.

WGTE can't even be picked up with mine here in Wyandotte-or any Toledo station for that matter.
