Re: NOAA Weather Radio

I liked it a whole lot better when there were another 250 local offices and they could have real meteorologists read the forecasts on the 'tape carts', and they had a way to 'cycle' them so you only heard the marine observations every 3rd time around or climate data maybe every 5th time around. Only...

Re: WTVN 610

Enjoyed listening to them on weekends in the early 90's on my Chrysler minivan AM Stereo radio- good audio, music programming, and they would pay an 'oh wow' 45 every once in a while too (in the winter when there were no sports to broadcast), WTVN has of course turned-off their HD both day and night.

You answered your own question: iHeart operates the station, and doesn't have a local morning show, that two negatives right there.

Re: CKWW 580 Adding More 80’s

I'd rather have them add 800 watts to their signal, or swap with the Big 8.

Re: WMTR going Digital

So, is 94.3 going to be located in the Toledo City limits so we can hear Tigers baseball games again since they're already hogging the rights for Toledo? I have a very decent radio (1.7uV) and it's not acceptable copy in a moving vehicle to listen to the game. WMTR is a thorn- good luck with that HD...

Re: The Good Old Days of Full-Powered Analog TV

40 element VHF Yagi? 220 miles? How about the curvature of the Earth? So, if I had a 40 foot tower in Monroe, Michigan, I highly doubt this antenna would pick-up Chicago stations? Or, would it (other than ducting). Most towers that went up here in Northern Ohio in the late 60's and early 70's were 4...

Re: HD Noise Cancellers

With 38 HD-AM stations, there are almost more analog stereo AM (CQUAM) stations on the air without disrupting their neighbors, like -1430 WION, and Nautel made it easy to revert your iBoc back to CQUAM in the menu on several of their AM-HD transmitters. The "I" and "Q" are there, just do the calculu...

Re: Allow FM Translators Of AM Stations To Use AM Callsign With LT Extension?

I'm surprised that iHeart tries to hide the other outlets for their broadcast stations, like they're ashamed of it, when they should promote it; ie: WSPD-Toledo, (in a whisper at double speed: WRVF-FM-HD2) and on 92.9FM. Why not brag about using the HD version that's in stereo? I believe that Low Po...

Re: The Good Old Days of Full-Powered Analog TV

Wow, amazing analog coverage areas, and if they digital stations today had this type of power, you could use rabbit ears in your car. You could see in 1995 the beginning of the end of broadcasters as FOX buying-up the nice VHF stations in the top 10 markets, and in 1996 the unlimited sloth of radio ...

Re: MiniDiscs anyone?

Wasn't the original W4 Detroit one of the few to ever broadcast in Quad? Quad vinyl is sweet. Have a Percy Faith Quad LP that even in stereo has a wonderful "sound stage", especially with headphones on.

MiniDiscs anyone?

Yes, I'm one of the fanboys for 'older technology' that was unique, works quite well, (still probably working too), but never caught-on big in the USA like it did in Japan and in other countries; this includes my affection for the MiniDisc format and for CQUAM AM Stereo. Regarding MiniDiscs: any fan...

I love the old school test patterns and "1KC" audio tone. I'm afraid the 'Politically Correct' people would make you change the Native American Indian to Pee Wee Herman or something now??

Re: Toledo radio Predictions for 2019

It actually makes sense, despite Andy Stuart's presence. Denny's gang on Q1055 was too expensive for their meager share when they have double the share to work with at 93.5FM. Also, Bill Manders hired Cliff Smithers to do country, so it was stupid having him on 93.5 when he belongs on K-100, and wil...

Re: WNWO (NBC 24 Toledo) on RF 23

Hoping 24 WNWO ups the power and/or antenna height, as I'm getting pixilation in Toledo since the jump from 49 to 23 when I only used to have it on very windy days. WGBU, wherever they moved are spot-on one day, then unable to decode the next day.
