Re: 2018 Detroit Tigers

Aaaaaaannnnndddd...down goes Miggy. As much as I’ve enjoyed Miggy’s tenure in Detroit (at least the early part of it), this is exhibit A on why I hate long-term deals, especially when the deal covers after the age of 30. I'm not happy to see Miggy go down again, but perhaps it's a blessing as it ma...

Re: Freedom Radio FM on 91.5

91.7 has been mostly Rhinelander, with Alpena and Muskegon showing up rarely. Speaking of Rhinelander, 105.3 is pretty much a regular in Manistee, with 94.5 and 97.3 not far behind

Re: Razor 94.7 adding 104.7 WBJZ simulcast

Razor 94.7 has one of the more consistent WI-based signals around here (Manistee). Most of the more consistent ones are either on the Door Peninsula (WPVM, WPFF, WDOR, WDKF) or run 100kW (WIXX, WAPL, WPNE)

Re: CIMX-FM coverage area

The CRTC is odd about coverage of Canadian stations in America and vice versa. KNRR (the old KCND before that station "moved" across the border to become CKND) was screwed out of hundreds of thousands of potential viewers after its relaunch in the 1980s (it put a decent OTA signal in Winnipeg and so...

Re: WBNZ 99.3 Frankfort fined $18,000 for unauthorized operations

Over the past week, I've gotten mostly WOWN on 99.3 and WRHN on 100.1, with 92.3 being a mix of WBNZ's open carrier, WJMQ, and WJPD (the latter two are both country stations)

Re: Manistee Bandscan (May 2018)

Last night I had two religious preaching stations mixing on 91.7. Wasn't able to get an ID out of either. I'm guessing one was WMCQ (AFR on the WZZM tower) and the other may have been WQQA or a translator somewhere. Since I moved back, the only 91.7's I've identified are WCML and WXPR, both public r...

Re: Manistee Bandscan (May 2018)

The 91.5 translator was basically forced from 91.7 due to WGCP's big upgrade (WGCP used to be almost impossible to get anywhere near Manistee before they moved to the WIAA/WOLW tower)

Re: Old cable lineups

I also remember VHF 4 always being a TV Listings type of channel. still is, to this day. 9 was always the real estate channel, too. CBC was/still is on 10, and WDIV is on 5. I think most put the guide on channel 4. Not sure why. The funny thing in Northern MI, is anywhere that WTOM was carried, it ...

Freedom Radio FM on 91.5

The Freedom Radio FM satellator in Manistee, which had been on 91.7 for the past few years, has moved to 91.5 within the last couple of months. This move makes little to no sense unless they were basically forced to move due to the WGCP upgrade. This really hurts WICA's reach in Manistee, considerin...
