Re: Improved AM in Subaru

It's too bad about Hyundai, as they were in line to get the Motorola "Symphony chipset" which favored HQ AM reception and had DSP, variable bandwidth, look ahead noise blankers and optional CQUAM. Unfortunately, Motorola sold their semiconductor line to ON Semiconductor and lost all the Motorola sal...

Re: WPHT drops IBOC

I had the Directed Electronics (DICE) add-on HD AM/HD FM tuner on my car set-up, and the distance of HD coverage was extremely poor. 560 AM in Monroe, I could only get near the Monroe exits on I-75, yet the buzz followed 580 up to Detroit. 950 was pure boom bass, and Superstation 910 was just nasty ...

Re: Subaru SXM Radio

I second that jry: the GM version of the XM Radio actually sounds fairly decent. Kia/Hyundai has okay bass, but oversaturated midrange and overdone on the fake high-end. Dodge I was in still had a Sirius rig, and not impressed-except that it had bonus artist features that most other radios don't have.

Re: Toledo Translator FM's

Clear Channel/iHeart applied to move a translator here under the 250 mile rule (for WCWA), but I don't see any paperwork showing the deal was consummated. Perhaps the 0.4 share isn't helping any?

Re: 106.5 Toledo to be sold

I second that pairing a simulcast of 97.3 with 106.5; however, I don't think the target audience would be in Fulton County; however, if it helps boost western Toledo enough that it could reach UT, then there is some merit. How about WMTR buys 106.5 and then they can dump the Tigers on there without ...

Re: 106.5 Toledo to be sold

I was told it would take about $1million to make 1470 happen, so buying another signal is cheaper these days unless they want too much. There was a buyer for 1520 who had everything set-up, right down to the advertising and financing, and EMF decided to double the cost at the last second of the last...

Re: 106.5 Toledo to be sold

EMF already has a "far West of the City signal" just like WTOD-FM, so they have no need for another stick near Fulton County. Is Cumulus Toledo still counting WMIM 98.3 FM Monroe as part of the Toledo FM count? Had they left 98.3 in Monroe county and not "Luna Pier", could they keep WTOD? Also, they...

Re: WJR Main Tower Installation Pics

Now I'm really confused, the 1933 photo showing the Blaw-Knox tower is next the transmitter building that is still in Riverview today. But it says that in 1951 WJR moved 16 miles away to Riverview. So did they have a tower in Detroit from the time that the 1933 tower crashed until they built the new...

PlateCap echoed my concerns: if they had any power on that tower, there would have been no Ricky Nelson as Harriet would have been a ball of fire. Speaking of balls, I don't see any at the base of the tower for a lighting strike? PS: 1934 ? So, did they adjust the tower height when the entire AM ban...

NBC, you're right, I gotta lay off of the sauce. A coworker used to tune-in to AM1000 early every morning on the way into work when there was not other method of obtaining ESPN at that time. I was thinking it was only a marketing agreement and not owned by the former Disney/ESPN radio group?

Re: 1560am WWYC Toledo Off the air

I thought about 2 years ago that there was a translator within 250 miles that could be magically transported to Toledo for WCWA, but perhaps it isn't worth the cost for a 0.4 share station with very little local content, unless they were to move the Indians to Seaway instead of SPeeDy?

WPOS is an interesting possibility, if they didn't have an attached activities center, maybe so, but I'm sure that the Cedar Creek mob is eating their WPOS lunch financially, and having competition from 3 other FM's has to be cutting into their action as well. Never say never. I still can't believe ...

Yes, on the FCC license application, moral character is a question on the app - not paying taxes would put most off the board of directors even, so someone else would have to own it. His only chance is to pay the big bucks to fix-up and move 1560, or buy-out 1520, which has new equipment, and should...

Re: 1560am WWYC Toledo Off the air

Col Flagg is correct, 1560 WTOD ran 5KW directional daytime and had to shutdown to protect 1560 NYC and a their time also was related to a station in Bakersfield, CA? Cumulus wanted the 100.7 translator so bad that they made a trade, the AM for the 100.7 signal (which has to have a parent station). ...
