Is WNUC-LP at 96.7 MHz on the air in Detroit?

Post by MWmetalhead » Fri Jun 09, 2017 6:59 pm

Yesterday, I noticed destructive interference to CHYR's signal in the vicinity of I-94 and The Lodge. In the past, 96.7 came in loud & clear in the New Center and Midtown areas, even with the WEXL translator nearby.

I guess this means WNUC-LP is now broadcasting?

The people who put these low power stations on the air on otherwise occupied frequencies are fools. Almost NO ONE can pick up these stations with strong enough reception to make listening worthwhile!!! You might as well just throw money down the sewer drain.
Donald Trump is a scum bag.

I read they spend $55,000 on the build out.

Unfortunately, as long as CHYR's protected on the Canadian side of the border, not much we can do but complain.

Out here in Ypsilanti, 96.7 is all CHYR (with a decent signal!)

95.1 or even 104.7 would be a much better frequency for WNUC.

104.7 only if it was north of 696 and had a null to the south.

95.1 would have to have a null north of 59.

Good luck finding an open frequency that doesn't step on the toes of neighboring stations. With Detroit being a large FM market, plus some consideration paid to Windsor and its own expanding market, there are hardly any spaces open that doesn't involve specific tower locations, power, and specifics on how to place the antenna.

Most of the equipment is still made here, making LPFM, the AM revitalization plan (FM translators), proposed changes to nighttime AM broadcasting, and non-comm FM spacing highly political. FCC workers are '30 and out' like any other government worker, and will easily bend to survive.

Non-profit media is the biggest investor in equipment and engineering right now. Don't be surprised if clear channel AM stations get squeezed out to allow a hundred or so existing stations to build out directional tower arrays. That could be a billion dollars to the domestic industry. Unless this died or changed, the request was 750 miles from a licensed clear channel for unlimited but directional broadcast. Keep in mind every year existing AM radio is under attack from more machinery (electric yard tools) and wireless gadgets.

96.7 was still "good" after we came out of the Tunnel yesterday..... so i'd say the Canadian Station on Canadian Soil..... all was well.

Would rather have 96.7 available in my Garage in Redford though.
