I don't care for the guy (his name always escapes me) who co-anchors the morning news. His delivery sucks. Very abrupt speaking style. Reminds me of someone trying to speak while fighting a bout of the hiccups!

Thanks for the info. The taller tower used by WBLU was actually the one I had in mind. WBLU's antenna is 351 feet above ground level.

Know anything about the alleged second tower in the Egypt Valley area?
I think that one was on 5 Mile east of Pettis a mile north of LAV's tower.

Re: Tropo - Day 2 (6/30 - 7/01)

Here's day 2 (6/30 into 7/1) of the recent tropo opening as it moved east on the south edge of the warm front. Day 1 (WV MN IA OH IL) had much longer distances simultaneously to MN and WV but weaker signals, while day 2 was only up to about 400 miles but extremely intense, stable, and long-lasting ...

Re: WLAV-FM has filed to change its main tower site to WFUR-FM's site!

At the old tower I once got LAV almost to the 96/23 interchange before the ticket obliterated it now it probably barely reaches Ionia

WBBL should die regardless or at least demoted to 94.5 and put 105.3 on LAV's old site and put Nash on 107.3 at BBL's current tower.

Variety hits would be a safe flip. 106.7 should've stuck with that.

Re: CIMX-FM coverage area

A lot of the banter during the morning show on 89X these days is Canada focused. I've also heard plenty of weather forecasts where the temperatures are expressed in celsius first and Fahrenheit second. The other day, the 89X morning show was giving away tickets for a Night Ranger outdoor concert in...

I've noticed a trend of stations near the border getting distant to their neighbors, in a way of Canadian Patriotism, Blackburn stations stopped airing Metro detroit traffic reports 4 or 5 years ago, Idk if Bell have yet,

Re: Latest Detroit Radio Ratings

It's really sad when a NPR station based out of Ann Arbor with a tower 50 miles west of Detroit beats a 50kw station right in Downtown detroit, 106.7 can't catch a break, think that frequency has been cursed since the 90's, except the beat which did okay, that didn't deserve to die, Alt 106.7 certai...
