Re: ABC12 celebrates 60 years and barely says “boo”

Trying to put 60 years in 4 minutes isn't doing justice to the station. Leaving out people that were there for years and years isn't right. Who was the booth announcer with the H*** voice that later did on camera work? They left him out too! He was there for many years, maybe 20 or more! (Scott?) Wh...

Re: SiriusXM and Cancellations

Cool! What programming package do you receive for the $5 rate? I get the same channels that I've always had from the time we bought the car and had 6 months free. The main reason that I like SIRIUS is the NASCAR channel on channel 90. My favorite music channel is The Groove on channel 50. The only ...

Looks like Sunday morning for the big change. Get TV to 14.2 and Retro moves to 14.7. That's the rumor that I heard and I'm sticking to it!

Re: SiriusXM and Cancellations

I've had Sirius for several years and pay about $5 a month for the promotion rate. I have to request it every 5 months, which I just did. It took 9 minutes from the time I started talking to a live agent. Not a big deal to save $$$.

All four?
WWTV has a channel 40 translator there with everything that comes off channel 9 in Cadillac.

I don't know how they feed it, but if it's on the air, you'll see it in TC.

PISP is set for channel 9 on TV's in TC. 9.1 is WWTV, 9.2 is FOX and 9.3 is MeTV. Is that correct?

9.1, 9.1, 9.2, 9.2 signals are all clearer in TC than they were before the fire. Great job to their engineers.
You're watching the translator up on the hill off Cedar Run road.

WHNE has dynamic PSI on all of their channels except the movie channel. The movie channel will be upgraded this fall and should have PSI information after that upgrade.

1-that he is the owner of WOAP. Sima Birach has nothing to do with it these days.
2-Boomer is still there.

BIRACH BROADCASTING CORPORATION hasn't owned WOAP since late 2016. It's owned by CANO'S BROADCASTING, LLC. TVBOBN , I am aware of that transaction. My understanding is that, somehow, Birach is still involved in the station. Honestly, I do not personally know the internal dynamics of either Birach o...

The city of Flint's police department is woefully understaffed, its officers severely underpaid, and experiences high turnover.

Re: WHNE needs more "Like's"

One more thing that I'd like to mention. Most LPTV stations only throw out power horizontally. When WHNE rebuilds to channel 3, they are going with a circular polarized antenna. This will help with all receive antennas to get the station, no matter which way the owner has their antenna turned. Other...

Re: WHNE needs more "Like's"

Channels are picked using a broadcast consulting engineer's computer, not by looking at a map. WHNE would have liked to remain in the UHF band, but was unable to find a usable UHF channel with near the same coverage as current channel 20. Below is the reason channel 3 was picked. Channel 13 was not ...
