Re: OTA channels MIA

What part of the metro area are you in SixPlusOne? WJBK is always a strong signal for me in Shelby Twp about 15 miles away LOS from the tower. But it is a High-VHF signal and a lot of antenna don't do VHF very well.

Re: Why can't WHNE go to UHF 30?

There is more overlap in the western suburbs than I thought there would be. Does anyone on the Westside actually pick up WLAJ as a good signal?

Re: OTA channels MIA

You need to do a full rescan of your channels to pick up the ones that moved with the RePack. Don't know what kind of TV you have, but there should be a Menu item under Channels or Antenna that allows you to do a autoscan.

Re: Why can't WHNE go to UHF 30?

I didn't think WHNE signal would be strong enough to interfere with a station out of Lansing.

Re: New channel frquencies

Is anyone getting anything on 19? WUDL or TVO
Right now I see signal from 19 but the quality is poor so the channels can lock.

I am also getting a weak signal from CIII-29 Global at 35, Where WUDL is moving in March.

Re: Why can't WHNE go to UHF 30?

How far does 51 CHCH-2 out of London actually reach? I have never picked them up on a scan, or even seen a weak signal. They are suppose to move to 14 where WKBD 50 was. I wonder why WHNE couldn't actually be located at 14.

Re: New channel frquencies

So CW 50 switched over during the night, so I decided to do a scan this morning to bring them back to my living room TV. I picked up 11 WTOL and 13 WTVG from Toledo during the scan, but I have a feeling this was just do to doing the scan a sunrise and this is not going to be a normal thing. Other th...

Re: 62.3 DABL ???

Also Decades doesn't want to be on LD or low power station that won't be carried on the local cable networks, so that does limit which channels can carry them. That pretty much leaves 38 WADL and 20 WMYD as the two best options to pick it back up.

Re: WLPC Moved to 28

Did they move fully? I still see them at 40 as a weak signal, but not at 28. My Channel Master DVR which allows me to manually scan channels without having to do a full rescan, so I can check signal strength and quality.

Re: Unique Radio Experiences

I found the interview with Mike Halloran where he talks about Radio's in Motion, mostly about his time with WDET. I was too young to remember his early shows in the late 70's, but from 83 on I think Mike Halloran introduced me to much of my favorite bands and songs. http://detroitpunkarchive.com/med...

Re: Unique Radio Experiences

Following Mike Halloran's "Radios in Motion" from station to station in the 80s. Listening to the launch of "The Cutting Edge of Rock" in September of 1990 on 88.7 where from 8Pm till Midnight it was a completely different radio station. Then watching it grow bigger and bigger till it took over the ...

Re: WOW FM?

I remember the creation and demise of this station. From "the how to kill the fox?" calls and "I got friends in low places", to the countdown, then the rotation of comedy album bits and parodies, to the start of trying to do FM talk radio. I would tune in when I wanted something different, and actua...

Re: How Wheels 106.7 programs by the hour

It seems to be Greater Media reacting to the competition. Since they own both WRIF and WCSX they had the rock market in Detroit wrapped up. But now they have someone trying to the pick up the audience from both their stations, by being right between the two playlistwise.

Not to mention, the average Schmuck may not be music nerds or radio nerds like us. Agree or not, and I hate the comparison, but when you go to McDonald's, you want a burger, fries and a coke.
