Re: Locast Streaming Local TV Channels In Detroit

Since I still have reception issues with CW, ABC, and WHNE, this might be a better option then messing with my set up,

Channel 4 off the air at 11:30

WDIV and all the sub channels are off the air after 11:30AM on Sunday. Checking their webpage, Twiiter, and Facebook I don't see anything about a planned maintenance or outage. Unless they figured since they were running infomercials no one would notice.

Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

No programmer worth a damn would program a bunch of obscure album cuts, B-sides, and stiffs in regular programming to cater to a small group of music snobs. It just wouldn't work. Just one example off the top of my head. The J.Geils Band they had 11 studio Albums and 30 singles. They considered Det...

Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

It's definitely a mess, and they need to be more honest with the way they present themselves. Call it Rock Variety or something. I definitely like it though. I cannot stand listening to one certain type or decade of music continuously. It's nice to hear my favorite rock songs spanning 5 decades, in...

Re: RIP CometTV (A Rant)

I agree, I use to struggle to get Comet TV in on 19.7 positioning my antenna just right to get a steady signal. Now I hardly watch much of Comet TV. I am a big Babylon 5 fan, but I have already watched it from start to finish 3 times since they started airing it. Looks like this is the last run thro...

Re: I'm beginning to think WLLZ has a liberal bias

I think the internet has already killed music on FM radio. The small playlist of safe songs, boiling down major artist with multiple albums down to a handful of songs, some artist just one or two songs if they are lucky to even get played. Being very restrictive in the bands they do play. About the ...

Re: RePack Phase 8 started

WUDT is still on 23 and hasn't moved to 8, but I always remove WUDT from my channel list, not even sure I will notice if they do move. It was funny WHNE 3 had become completely unwatchable for the last two weeks, until the rain came on Friday, now all back to normal. So I was having some strange ref...

Re: RePack Phase 8 started

In the middle of April I must of been experiencing some short of atmospheric issues. I was getting either much weaker signals, and choppy video on many channels during the day, but they were pretty much fine at night. WHNE was coming in very weak compared to when it first came back on the air and ho...

I wish there was better tools that could be used to narrow down issues then just strong or weak signal meter.

Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

Such a limited play list for trying to have such a wide range of music. Every band is boiled down to about 3 or 4 songs for big names, and 1 or 2 songs for everyone else. Even the deep cuts seem to repeat a lot.
WLLZ is flat.

Re: Retro TV WHNE

I am still seeing WHNE, the signal is strong for me, but the quality is very low, so it is choppy and can go blank for a time. Before both the signal and quality were high. I am about 14 miles away for the tower in Shelby TWP NE of the tower.

Re: Retro TV WHNE

Of course last fall Retro TV announced "Big Things on the Horizon" on https://www.myretrotv.com/ and we are still waiting to find out what those changes are. Is it more old Canadian shows? time will tell.

Re: RePack Phase 8 started

Picked WHNE nice and solid this morning. Even picked up 13 out of Toledo this morning, I am in Shelby Twp so I am sure it won't last. With the favorable tropo I didn't pick up any Canadian stations other then usual 9 and 19. Still didn't pick up a solid signal from WUDL, while my DVR+ can see a stro...

Re: RePack Phase 8 started

So when there are high winds CW50 is unwatchable for everyone OTA? I know the interference was always worse the higher the RF channel. When I first mounted my antenna I didn't have it very high off the ground, and I would get bad interference on many of the channels that were RF 40 and up. Which was...
