Re: Roy loses another station....

The FCC has been very insistent on keeping allotments in the middle of nowhere. It's really not serving those communities. It just prevents more competition in larger communities, serving a larger population. When the Bear Lake station, then WRQT, went on the air, there weren't nearly the number of ...

Re: The Loss Of A Living Legend; Cokie Roberts

I also think Cokie's father, Hale Boggs, was a man of principle. One theory is that he lost his life in a plane crash because he had been on the Warren Commission and he knew too much about the Kennedy Assassination. He didn't believe the single bullet theory, and probably with good reason. He was i...

Re: Most Dangerous Roundabouts In Michigan

I wonder who profits most from these. Big Roundabout? Insurance companies from rising rates? You would think they would have tested it more before building so many. The only place they seem to work well is in new residential areas where they replace four way stops. Except they can't really be retrof...

Revenge Of The Nerds

https://www.studyfinds.org/study-teens-who-hold-off-on-dating-have-better-social-skills-less-depressed/ I observed in HS that the young women were depressed and crying a lot in class, presumably after some breakup, but I was not usually privy to the gossip surrounding it. The guys that were "active"...

Re: NOAA Rebukes AL Weather Station, Says Trump Was Right!

I vote TC Talks as the most likely poster here to have visited Epstein Island. There is no more elitist poster on mibuzzboard.com. Leave it to him to defend the Royal Family from accusations. Not that TC did visit, just most likely, given his attitude.

NOAA Rebukes AL Weather Station, Says Trump Was Right!

Come on now. You know the cone could have extended to Alabama like Trump said. This Dorian Map Cone shows the cone extending to Greenland. I did hear a number of forecasters saying it could hit Florida and jump over to the Gulf of Mexico. https://www.google.com/maps/@37.4057711,-101.2504872,3z/data=...

Re: Q106 interference

105.9 is directional from the Oak Park tower. It pulls in to the West.

It's about 45% of maximum power to the West.
