I do remember seeing a "Share the spirit of 9 and 10" ID on a "Neil Diamond Special" somewhere.
Well, here it is... but it's somebody else's video:

Re: Old School 7&4

I can't view it. Apparently NBCUniversal blocked something because of copyright. Perhaps a commercial? It has the tail end of SNL, I'll try to edit that out and re post on Youtube. Vimeo cost $7 a month. :cry: Edit: Here I got it up on Vimeo on a free trial. See if this works. https://vimeo.com/290...

Re: Old School 7&4

Anybody have the signoff for WPBN/WTOM from the 1970s or 1980s? I'm sure someone has it on U-Matic in their basement 😁 Ok I found it, I posted it on Youtube. https://youtu.be/Fxe_NTrZqBg I can't view it. Apparently NBCUniversal blocked something because of copyright. Perhaps a commercial?

Re: Old School 7&4

I don't have a copy of either, but I really wish I did. What I DO have is an old 9&10 sign-off from '83 when they were owned by Ralph Wilson... but the picture is terrible because it was DX. I posted a mock-up on YouTube in case anyone hasn't seen it yet:

Re: 9&10 logo I whipped up

I did a little research on those translators myself, but it looks like it's all covered. But I did find out something about a W83AN in Stephenson, MI. Where else can I find good info on old TV translators besides the American Radio History website?

Over at the Crystal Lake house today, I got my tropo record with 95.3 KDJS from Willmar, MN, about 435 miles away from here. What time did you hear it? The whole band blew open with Minnesota and Iowa up to the Neb. / SD border at my Hart site starting at midnight until around 4am, though 100.9 KOW...

Re: baraboo/madison

I picked up WOLX just now, but not that well. It wasn't very easy to null out WKZC, which comes in like a local here at the lake house.

The lake house I'm staying at is by Crystal Lake, near Frankfort and Lake Michigan.

Re: WYPV/WJML

Looks like they have phased out their AM's from their branding... like many other stations these days. I still think that 101.1 FM as a JML signal is kind of redundant with 106.3 around. EDIT: Wait a minute... if 94.5 is simulcasting WJML, does that mean WHAK 960 is doing the same? Because WHAK has ...
