Re: Looks Like 9&10 Is Forgoing News at Noon

I watch 9-10 news every day. I was bummed to see Larry King hawking some cheap pills as a substitute. We don't get WNEM in TC, would be nice.

Re: Posting pictures

Ok thanks. I'll try it. Where are you guys putting up pictures? I used to use photobucket but they charge to use it now. imgur is popular (Google it) - though I haven't used it myself. imgbb is free, doesn't require an account - I've used that easily, but it's not necessarily a recommend. Again - Go...

Edit "location"

I can't seem to find the place for adding my location to the avartar area. I would like to put in "Traverse City". Now that I'm retired I don't need to hide info about me. Thanks.

Re: 7&4 in 1980

Note that WPBN was probably still getting its NBC feed off-air from WOTV (now WOOD) and WNEM at the time. Still, it's incredible that they lose sync switching between the network pickup and local insertion. That should have been engineered out of their chain by early 1954. WPBN took off air pickups...

Re: TV RF Channel Changes

The Milwaukee stations are rarely a nuisance in the GR and Kzoo areas. One has to be far away from the city or within, say, 10 miles of the lake shore for that to be a major issue.

Can't really say the same for 101.9, but it's further and it has a wall of IBOC in its way too.
