Re: I do want to pay our local news media outlets a compliment!

I must not have listened the day they were broadcasting live from the island. Their coverage seemed tempered compared to usual, which I was happy to see. I walked by Jordan and Jasina at the WWJ desk on Wednesday morning. I was listening to the station (gangbusters signal) on my little AM/FM Walkma...

Re: The Blunders Continue.....

Re: Popular Communications Magazine

A free program called fldigi (fast light digital) from W1HKJ will decode and display WEFAX broadcasts, as well as dozens of other digital communications modes used in amateur radio, including Morse, RTTY, and PSK.. Documentation is pretty decent as well. Versions available for Windows, macOS, Linux....

This is a test signal for ATSC 3.0 technology, I suspect.
It is nothing to do with ATSC 3.0.
It is some thing actually called "DABL" about which pretty much nothing is known, yet.
It is not Decades.

Re: WMYD To Host Detroit’s First ATSC 3.0 Signal

I...noticed that my WMYD signal on its current rf21 is weaker then the test on rf31.........rf21 74% signal on my LG tv while I was getting the test signal rf31 84%. They either have more juice kicking out on rf 31 or my antenna has better gain on the mid freq of rf31.Any thoughts???? If I'm not mi...

Re: TBD TV now airing on 50.4

That’s been there for a while now. Actually a waste of garbage programming on a good sub-channel, I thought CBS would have put something else on with some sort of quality than that shit on 50.4 TBD went live on WKBD 50.4 in December, was discussed here at that time. While I also think TBD is crap, ...

Re: SiriusXM and Cancellations

If you're on a "frugal" data plan (as I used to be), all that mobile streaming can use up a lot of data pretty quickly and could push you into overage charges. I still like having a bunch of old school "presets" so I can simply just punch around between a few favorites while driving.
