West Unity Bandscan

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

West Unity Bandscan

Post by cckadlec » Mon Aug 07, 2017 4:26 pm

Here is a basic bandscan from West Unity, which is just across the Michigan/Ohio line along the Turnpike, 23 miles east of the Indiana border as well. It's "basic," as in, I didn't use my portable radio to get signal strength readings as I do in my "detailed" bandscans, and doesn't include stations that may have been in the null of the stronger stations, but merely using the radio in my vehicle as you would typically hear while sitting in a particular spot.

In the meantime, I have three bandscans taken on the beaches in Lake Huron at East Tawas, Alpena, and Harbor View being prepared to be posted in the near future. Reception was mainly from Sudbury, North Bay, Toronto, London, Barrie, and Buffalo. But here, a rather boring scan from the border region:
