Re: 101.9 wldr

What were the two frequencies? I'm guessing 92.1 was one (WCCW's original frequency) 92.1 and 103.1 https://americanradiohistory.com/hd2/IDX-Business/Magazines/Archive-BC-IDX/62-OCR/1962-12-24-BC-OCR-Page-0073.pdf#search=%22traverse%20city%22 Except for WWTV-FM, which was already there, it's amazin...

Ever since Renee Richards, it's always been about men masquerading as women in sports because of the natural competiitive advantage.

Re: Can California just secede and become its own country already?

California is already well on the way to being a Third World Country. People living and depositing their waste in the streets. Power failures, forest fires they can't control, earthquakes and such are common. The question is, other than the weather, what do they really have going for them? Wait till...

Re: 101.9 wldr

Actually, radio is now just a sideline for this man, northradiotruth. He now considers himself more of a missionary, in the narrow sense that he defines it, but not bound by any traditional beliefs of his professed religion. I'm sure that his past associates consider him something along the line of ...

Re: 101.9 wldr

Remember that the figures reflect the entire Traverse City Petoskey Cadillac market counties, not just Traverse City or Grand Traverse County. This is a H*** area for even the biggest facilities to cover. Most of the bigger stations have satellites which simulcast them. Most still fall short of full...

Re: 101.9 wldr

Some of the people seem to have an overinflated view of the importance of the market. The Traverse City Area has far more radio stations than other, much larger, markets in Michigan and the Midwest. This is largely due to the FCC rules which restrict stations where they are needed, and put many stat...

Re: 101.9 wldr

My guess is that they simply stopped the LMA payments because the stations are often off the air or running really low power, or running illegally like the pirate in Traverse City. I heard (hearsay) that in the past that he wouldn't pay tower rent, and that is why the stations are in such technical ...

Re: 101.9 wldr

It would be far better if the stations were sold rather than cancelling licenses. Cancellation would result in the frequencies remaining silent for years, with all the appeals and challenges that could occur.

Re: Most Dangerous Roundabouts In Michigan

Someone loves their roundabouts to post six responses in a row. Me, I take any government data with a grain of salt. From my experiences, roundabouts are worse than a signalized intersection, and even worse than a four way stop in some cases. I think he must represent Big Roundabout. Wonder what he...
