Grace radio discount

Would be nice if Grace Digital would give us trade-ins for 50% off on replacement Internet Radios after the early death of their Mondo model, which is too bad as it works pretty decent, until this crash-and-burn with Receiva renders it an orphan. The gave me 30% off on a new model. Also they are ma...

Re: WDET Broadcasting on 101.7 and 102.1

I am also seeing it in Royal Oak on my Sangean HDR-14 ID'ing with RDS on both of those frequencies.

As noted above I left a message with WDET yesterday and sent an email on 1/13/2021 but they have not replied.

You mean like Fox saying that Obama is going to confiscate every ones guns? Or that Covis-19 is a Democratic hoax?

Detroit Rock Radio Is Dead (mostly)

What? You mean that you don't want to hear Turn the Page or Walk this Way just one more time? Shame on you! Why would you not want to listen to stations (WCSX and WOMC I am talking to you) that only play 400+- songs over and over again for decades. The real wonder here is that anyone still listens t...

WGVU, WFMU & Radio Caroline

WGVU out of Grand Rapids plays a good oldies mix. And on Sundays at 3PM they do a top 40 countdown show for a week between the late 1950's to the mid 1970's. Lots of times it is really obscure stuff at the beginning of the countdown. https://www.wgvu.org/radio/realoldies1480/ Another good station is...

Re: Fixed antenna for CICO & CBET

I have been poking around a lot and found a hi-VHF/UHF antenna that I am going to try. It is made by Stellar, model 30-2440. It is just 43 inches long and I can deal with that.

Thanks again all.

Fixed antenna for CICO & CBET

I want to put up a fixed TV antenna at about 20 feet for CICO and CBET in Windsor. According to RabbitEars they are 27 miles from my house. Since CBET is high VHF (channel 9 actual channel) and CICO is channel 19 I will need a VHF/UHF antenna. I am trying to get a smaller antenna and wonder if the f...

Are CICO and CBET on the same tower?

I am going to put up a fixed antenna to get CICO. I noticed that CICO and CBET are both in the exact same direction from my house, 157.3 degrees south. Are both transmitters on the same tower?
