Re: WWJ signal problems?

As of yesterday they were at full power. When I posted earlier in this thread, they were on reduced power. With a six tower directional array, there is always the chance of problems compared to a non d station. If a station has an intermittent problem for short period of time I don't believe they ha...

Re: Detroit radio station cume (weekly unique listeners count)

WWJ has made a terrible choice of not simulcasting on an FM station
