Re: CHYR Radio 7 Canada

I remember listening to CHYR up in the Tri Cities back in the 70's during the daytime, they had a real good ground wave to the north at that time.

Re: WNIC Audio

They don't care over there at ifart, their HD transmitter on 106.7 cuts out all the time and nothing is being done about that so don't expect a remade for WNIC soon if their audio is a problem. I don't listen to NIC so I can't comment on their problem.

Re: WLLZ HD signal

I've noticed their HD transmitter goes on and off periodically in Wayne, and Oakland counties. It is especially annoying listening on HD 2, at least on HD 1 it goes back to analog if the HD transmitter cuts out. I've been able to carry the HD signal up US-23 to M-59 then it becomes sporadic after th...

I believe Doug Podell was the one who banned Incubus because of them blowing off the event, correct me if I'm wrong.

Re: FM Stations That Used To Be Listenable In SE MI, But Now Difficult Or Impossible

I'm glad I don't listen to FM anymore, I wouldn't be able to put up with the aggravation with the interference. I do listen to WWJ occasionally.

Re: Most distant AM/FM/TV signal you ever tuned in?

I listened to KFI back in the 80's when I was up in Saginaw one night. On the TV side, in western Wayne Co. with an outdoor antenna up 40 feet, I watched KXAS out of Dallas, and KENS in San Antonio battle each other back and forth on channel 5 back in the analog days of the 90's. Also in western Sag...
