Re: 7&4 in 1980

If I remember correctly, WPBN got the network by microwave. There was a relay tower on the south side of US-10 between Reed City and Chase.

Re: WMOM shuts down

Cadillac to Big Rapids is more like 40 miles. However, the Theodores have a home near Mecosta, MI.

It's been sunny almost all day in Reed City. 6 pm temperatures were 72 in Big Rapids and 75 in Cadillac.

Re: 97.3 Grand Rapids shut down

Trophyhead and ZZM, I'd be interested in signal reports now. The main transmitter wasn't back on until yesterday (2/14).
Before then the ERP was probably only 650 watts. It should be better to the south, because there was a shadow from a tower leg at the old location.

Re: WATT

Any idea where the transmitter is located? From the other reports, I'd guess NW of the city.

WATT

Just returned from Cadillac and discovered that WATT now has a translator on 106.1
The signal reaches as far south as LeRoy and possibly Ashton (exits 162 and 159) on US 131.
I tried it on 2 different vehicles.

Re: 97.3 Grand Rapids shut down

A minor point, Trophyhead, but WDEE was only off 9 days. From Sunday afternoon 1/6 to early evening 1/15. Several days of that was due to weather, when the tower climbers couldn't work.

Re: Holy Winter Tropo Blasters!

Today around noon, WRKR (107.7) was stepping all over the WBRN translator in Reed City.
