Re: Irons, MI FM bandscan 6/29/19

Wqlq comes in quite often up here near ludington too. Also Wkfr 103.3 comes in weak and in mono but listenable almost 80% of the time on the yagi fm antenna I have mounted. MW, was Chicago or Millwaukee coming in at Holland when you where there? 99.1, 103.7, 92.3 or even GB stations 101.1 or 99.7. C...

Re: TV RF Channel Changes

They still have the TV guide in the ludington paper printed one day a week. Used to have wfrv, wbay, wluk, wwtv, wpbn, wcmu, wfqx and wzzm. They still have the tv listings but now only list it as national networks I think. Also where I’m at near fountain , all that seems to come in these days are ww...

Re: 99.3 WQAN Signal Strength

Driving up from ludington area this morning. 101.9 came in well once north of scotville. Once by bear lake, it was getting some interference. Not sure what it was. 99.3 must be broadcasting on a tower close to tc cause it comes on very strong.

Re: 96.3 wkla format tweak

Now synergy’s website is suspended? Ludington radio stations surely have gone down hill in the recent years. Now with the loss of 102.7 to the list, 105.3(wcxt now whts), 106.3(now on 96.3 but signal sucks) are all gone and 94.1 moved south a bit.

Re: WMOM shuts down

(speaking of 106.3, WKLA (AM) has a CP for a translator on that frequency!)
Maybe z93 will be listenable in ludington again if this cp actually goes thru.

Re: WMOM shuts down

Wmom used to have countdown shows years ago on weekends and Sunday morning they did have religious music playing (not sure if it was live or syndicated). They also used Fox News for there national news along with local news done themselves. Ludington has lost most of its good stations now. First it ...

96.3 wkla format tweak

In ludington area for the weekend and was listening to the locals. Sounds like Wkla tweaked their format to compete with 102.7 wmom. They even mention them in a around about way. Seems like a pop friendly CHR format with some hip hop. Pretty much an opposite of wmom alternative rock /chr hybrid form...

Speaking of 92.3 it’s complelty gone in traverse city too. Wonder if it completely off air? And of course 103.5 comes in like a loc...
