The next night I stayed At the Historic Gibson Motel in Pinconning. I didn't get their channel selection but they were the only motel I've ever been to without cable TV, (since the early 80's) I payed 50$ for the room so I can't complain.

WDFM-LP/26 is now on cable position 19, which if I remember right, was the former home of CBET/9 CBC Windsor.

It has consolidated the separate "All Around..." local shows into a single "All Around Northwest Ohio" show. Video from WDFM-LP is on YouTube, with shows uploaded as recently as this week.

Most of this info comes from online TV listings.
In case anyone wonders were to find it, I suppose this is the YouTube link for WDFM-LP.

Defiance and even Ft. Wayne are pretty common in Wauseon. Even more common once you get a couple miles south of SR2.

Before my grandparents moved to wauseon, they lived in delta - in the middle of a soybean field on a numbered county road. I never had any problems getting detroit, fort wayne or columbus TV or FM stations from there.

Years ago, I was on Mackinac Island and the place we stayed at didn't have cable, so the antenna lineup was:
2 - CHBX (CTV Sault Ontario)
4 - WTOM (NBC Cheboygan)
5 - CJIC (CBC Sault Ontario)
6 - WCML (PBS Alpena)
8 - WGTQ (ABC Sault Michigan)
10 - WWUP (CBS Sault Michigan)
11 - WBKB (CBS Alpena) [very weak]

Your post stuck with me while on vacation last month, I stayed at 4 different hotels and each TV was in the "stretch" mode.

And I'll bet every single one of the TV sets in those hotels were in "stretch" or "zoom" mode.

Jamestown is in the Buffalo market, so the stations should be WGRZ 2 (NBC), WIVB 4 (CBS), WUTV cable 6 (Fox 29) and WKBW 7 (ABC), with the other CBS on cable 5 being WSEE 35 from Erie.

Glad to see that Dunkirk still gets CBC, though they also used to get CFTO/9 (CTV). I believe that they lost it when YNN Buffalo (today's Spectrum News) came on.

That This TV in Ontario OH (near Mansfield) is probably from its previous home at WUAB/43.2. It is now Bounce, and both 43.1/43.2 are now shared on sister WOIO (RF 10) with 19.1 (CBS) and 19.2 (MeTV). That would make sense in that lineup, with This TV being listed right next to MeTV...

There are some Cable Channels that never seem the end of on any hotel cable systems; for example:

MTV Classic
Sundance
IFC
Aspire
TVONE

I've never seen BYU TV on any cable system either, but the closest I've been to Utah in the last 27 years was Lincoln Nebraska.

Comcast Detroit carries BYU TV up on ch 390, one of a block (389-400) of "religious" nets.

VH1 classic morphed into MTV Classic a couple of years ago. Their programming changed somewhat, (basically more rap and no more That Metal Show or Rush Concerts.)
