Whatever happened to T Bag Teddy Grahams?

He went on a kamikaze mission to destroy himself and me, but so far only he has gone away.

I hope he didn’t die of AIDS or suicide.

Has anyone heard from the fairy princess lately?
I also nominate this for the douche bag suppository.

Re: Nomination: Teddy Bear

I'll give him this: He isn't a really big troll, some of his posts are relevant. I mean at least he's not like LL101

Nomination: Teddy Bear

He's so irritating, especially when he feels the need to bring up his sexuality when it's not even relevant, which is actually in almost every single post of his. He constantly gets off topic and constantly bashes all Christians, assuming every single Christian is homophobic. And he's always being n...

Re: WTOL may be removing MeTV

I'm watching WTVG MeTV right now, WDIV is airing some day of the dead event on their MeTV channel. Which is understandable, metro Detroit has a sizeable Hispanic population. I'm glad to have WTVG as a backup affiliate though.

Re: WHNE STA

Also, my intention is to put the antenna on my patio, which is made entirely of wood and faces north. I never use my patio anyway. I'm going to attach the metal elements to some lumber and then attach the lumber to my patio railing. That way, I won't have a mast to ground. The patio area is 10 ft x ...

Re: WHNE STA

Thanks for your suggestions! 8) But there's still some things I could not find the answer to. Horizontal dipole reflectors are 5% longer than the half wavelength (half wavelength in this case is 7.8 ft, with a reflector length of 8.2 ft). Would the folded dipole reflector length be 8.2 ft, or is it ...

Re: WHNE STA

I would use a folded dipole for better bandwidth. I would just use a horizontal polarization. Circular and Elliptical antennas are more difficult and tricky. You could use one of the early designs for the folded dipole, with an aluminum tube and a heavy gauge wire connected at the ends to the tube....

Re: WHNE STA

I'm going to be making an antenna to receive WHNE. It'll be outdoors, but on the patio as opposed to the roof. This is so I can troubleshoot problems easily and can avoid going on the roof just because of a loosened coax cable or something like that. Plus, the cable run would be shorter. And I want ...

Both the pending application and the STA will broadcast from the current TX in Oak Park at 483 ft and will give viewers w...

WADL has a 1080, 5 480s, and an audio channel. They all look great.

Re: WTOL may be removing MeTV

WTVG 13.4's picture and audio quality are superb! I'll be watching this instead of WDIV DT3.
