Re: DECADES IS COMING BACK THIS FALL!!!

I had connected the antenna cable to the USB WinTV-HVR stick about 2 minutes before the strike. I saw the flash of lightning and heard immediate thunder, then thought the strike was really close. I looked at the laptop and saw it wasn't running. After several restarts Windows (8.1) fixed itself. Dur...

Re: DECADES IS COMING BACK THIS FALL!!!

I don't know the story behind the West Branch station why they are off the air. Over Memorial weekend a bad thunderstorm went though and lightning struck my 40' tower, causing damage to my laptop and popping a circuit breaker (neighbors witnessed the strike). WURO may have had the same storm knock t...

Re: Florida Woman Creates New Ice Cream Flavour

As a kid I was told to not eat yellow snow...apparently this applies to yellow ice cream too (especially vanilla).

Re: The atrocity known as AM HD radio

The only HD AM station that sounded good to me was KMOX 1120 (St. Louis, MO). When the HD locked in, the station had a nice rich sound almost as good as AM stereo.

Re: DECADES IS COMING BACK THIS FALL!!!

Good channel! We had it at Houghton Lake on WURO TV18 (Roscommon) until they went off the air over Memorial weekend. WURO was still off the air this last weekend. It was also carried on their sister station in West Branch, and that has been off the air for over a year now. Hopefully the stations wil...

Re: Unique Radio Experiences

WIBM 94.1/1450 in Jackson back when they were oldies, would announce that name of a song to be played later that day. First caller to call in when hearing the song won $$$. One day the AM DJ (I forgot his name), upset that he never got to play the winning song, decided to play it 3 times. He was qui...

Re: The Bear

Bryce, beautiful dog! I meant to say that in my previous post, sorry about that. Our dog (Molly, actually, my wife's) is a rescue from a puppy mill, where she was abused. Molly is a chihuahua/papillon mix and we have had her for nearly 10 years. She is afraid of men and spreads out her front legs wh...

Re: Court TV is coming to WXYZ 7.4 in May

Thanks for correcting me on 47.4. I had forgot its existence since I don't watch it. 47.5 was stunting over the weekend and mentioned today is when Court TV arrives.

7.4 is on air, stunting with CourtTV promotional pieces.
"Launching this Wednesday, May 8" in the corner.
Same thing is going on with Lansing's WSYM 47.4.

Jackson area OTA

IS there anyone in Buzzboard-land that lives in the Jackson area receiving TV stations from outside the market? If so, how high is the antenna (tower or rooftop)? What stations can you receive and how well? If you have any other comments, please feel free to add them. I'm familiar with the various w...
