Re: RePack Phase 8 started

WADL is running a test pattern on 27.1 plus blank 27.2, 27.3, and 27.4
They were off the air for a short time yesterday, so they are a step closer to changing.

Re: RePack Phase 8 started

Does anybody know what the real issue with WHNE is? What type of equipment did they need that it had to come from overseas? From WHNE "Our new broadcast antenna was ordered from a company in Pennsylvania. They needed a custom made part for the antenna. They ordered this part from a specialty compan...

Re: RePack Phase 8 started

WADL is still on 39 and hasn't moved to 27 yet.
WHNE is down till they get the parts they need and that could be a month or more now. And I am not even sure I can get them even when they comeback on 3.
WUDT hasn't moved yet either, but I will just delete again when it does move.

Re: AT&T Questions Broadcasters' Use of TV Spectrum

AT&T has little stake in OTA, they will make more money if people are forced to use cable or broadband for streaming.

Re: RePack Phase 8 started

WHNE-LD that actually tries ends up on RF 3 where many people won't even be able to pick them up. But WHPS, WUDT, WDWO, WLPC, and WULD all have better RF channels but I always delete them from my channel list.

Re: Will history repeat itself? (Network switch)

Sounds like your antenna doesn't have good Hi VHF elements (RF 7-13). As for network switching I don't see the point now that channel numbers are virtual, Fox switched channels because it didn't want it's stations out in the UHF range, they wanted to be in the VHF range with the other major networks...

Re: Mike Halloran coming to WDET for a special "Radios In Motion" show

Mike Halloran is one of my favorite DJs of all time, once I discovered him late night on WDET I followed him from radio station to radio station till he moved out west. I even remember during the early days of 88.7 "the Cutting Edge of Rock" there would be on air segments where he and Greg St. James...
