WLC Rogers City

Probably the very first licensed radio station of any kind in Northern Michigan. Too bad the FCC won't allow someone to use the callsign. Extensive History of WLC. http://www.imradioha.org/WLC.htm Antenna supports. At one time there were several towers and several frequencies used. They left the air...

To HGR1290 About WHGR 1290 Night Pattern

To HGR1290 and others who expressed interest in the old WHGR facility. I found the record in the Canadian Database. Apparently, they considered rebuilding a 3 tower Night array at the new WUPS 98.5 site on the hill, with 4.6 kW Night. I would assume that the parameters are either identical or nearly...

Does anyone know the story straight from the horse's mouth, not our generally informed conjecture?

Re: 106.7 on the air?

Bring back warm 107fm wwrm John has been kept informed. Rationally speaking, why would anyone buy any station under the current milieu of events? The events have slowed the transfer, which was in motion before the virus. Small Business in Michigan is not currently in a position, in general, to buy ...

Who is that doing the IDs?

Doesn't sound like the MacDonald Garber engineer. Dennis Murray?

Re: 89X,93.9 The River & AM580 are Gone

As for 580, they changed patterns. With that being said, not everyone will get it. And some, only at night. I see nothing either in the US or Canadian Database that suggests that. The latest information is from 2011. I suspect that they may have been on STA for the last several years. That would be...

Re: 106.7 on the air?

They only had until December 9, 2020, to get something back on the air. Doesn't mean anything programming wise beyond what is on right now. The transfer closing doesn't have to be complete. They just have to be on the air. http://licensing.fcc.gov/cgi-bin/prod/cdbs/forms/prod/getimportletter_exh.cgi...

Re: 106.7 on the air?

Vinyl surface noise on some tracks. Compression beating down audio peaks. Too much dynamic compression in processing?

Re: 106.7 on the air?

Hey Colonel Flagg, do you have the testing and DX Test Tape from WTRX that the late great Don McComb used? They could sure use something good.

Re: 106.7 on the air?

Yes. They IDed at 1:00 PM as WSRT Gaylord. Weird New Age Music. Testing, not stunting.

Re: Did WKHQ or WKPK Ever Have A Published Record Survey?

This looks like an in-house survey from WGRY 1590 Grayling from 1973. This was a few years before it was sold to Alpine Broadcasting/John DeGroot, so there was no connection to WWRM/WKPK at the time. Keep in mind that this is also not the previous WGRY 1370 in Gary, IN which had those call letters b...

More likely that WTCM would come in there, except during Critical Hours or years ago before WTCM went big, or when WTCM has transmitter problems.

Re: Blarney Stone Petitions FCC to cancel WLDR license

This would be very contentious if the license is cancelled. Estimates of the frequency remaining off the air range from 5 to 10 years. Look at the fact that there were SIX APPLICANTS for CLASS A 104.5. Look at how long that took to resolve. Look how long 95.9 was off after its license was cancelled....
