Lake Michigan Mid-Lake Bandscan (2016)

The technical side of broadcasting. Think IBOC is a sham? Talk about it here! How about HDTV? Post DX reports here as well.

Lake Michigan Mid-Lake Bandscan (2016)

Post by cckadlec » Fri Sep 23, 2016 3:58 am

To view a bandscan from the same location in 2014, see here.

There are three bandscans here and they are all ridiculously disappointing. Taken on August 21, conditions were very poor and unseasonable, typical weather of October with dead conditions, both on land and on water with a lack of a lake breeze. In other words, not what I had been looking for. To compare these poor scans with just 127 stations received, the link above shows the same location two years ago with 193 stations. Unlike then, I've split this one up into two scans, one from Manitowoc to the middle of the lake and another from the middle of the lake to Ludington. In addition, as in 2014, I've included a scan on the beach in Ludington to compare to what was heard on the water. However, because of the dead conditions, it's barely worth posting.

The new WKLA is actually 3.4kW on the same stick as WLDN and W224CA

Thanks! Except WLDN is off the air and deleted from the databases now. I was too lazy to look into the FCC database for the new information and was just using the old CP information. :)

That does look like a pitiful Bandscan for a Mid Lake

Even 3 weeks ago I was able to pick up 101.9 the Mix all the way in Scottville and you didnt even get that

Yeah, I was getting Chicago without any problem in Ludington last week. This truly was terrible. No marine inversion layer, no lake breeze to fuel anything, and inland conditions were dead (I actually could hear Big Rapids, which is really rare!), matching the typical nighttime conditions in the absence of the lake breeze. That's the thing with this. You never know what you'll get when you're out there or anywhere. You can plan a whole trip out and end up getting crap. The whole week I was driving around the lake, it was late October-like conditions with dark overcast skies, cool temperatures, and dead conditions.

Speaking of Chicago, I've gotten the 107.9 from west of Chicago a few times the last few weeks. Also 106.7 has been common, with 98.7 and 105.9 making appearances time and again.

Also, 96.1 Sheboygan gets out very well! I can hear it quite a bit of the time in Manistee
