Re: WLEC changes formats and bumpers, seems to have gone Classic Hits

Who's retiring from WLEC? And isn't their HD-2 the same as the HD-1 most of the time?

Too bad that they don't have a radio/RF or Internet backup audio line??

Thanks for sharing Turkeytop. Didn't know those QSL stamps still existed into the 1960's, thought it was years before that?

Re: Lew Dickey UPDATE

How can an American (or Canadian) broadcaster be more than 49% foreign-owned? Isn't that what killed The Big 8 when RKO couldn't own CKLW?

Re: Late Night talking heads

Fallon is like a cup of java- way too hyper - I want to calm down, relax, chuckle a few times and go to bed. No thinking, no hating, no anger, no politics, no fast moving action, just slow and easy and off to night-night land.

Re: Scanners

Probably one of the first dozen NWR stations in the country, back when it was ESSA, pre-NOAA. Can't believe that they can't have a redundant audio line from the NWS to Southfield?

Re: There's a moderate risk of severe weather today, and...

Detroit's NWR station is one of the first, one of the oldest, and has just a phone line link to Southfield IIRC. They need a decent upgrade. That being said, I think NWR is one of the better things to spend your tax dollars on, and doesn't overload like cellphones when the tornado sirens go off- you...

Re: Spring/Summer 2020 Tropos

I wish you could send us a "bat signal" in the clouds, or a text on the phone, or a call over the ham rig, to alert us to the Tropos. Did it extend up into the 2 meter band, or just the FM band?

Re: More From The WWJ History Card

If I'm not mistaken, once you gave up your 3 letter Callsign, you couldn't get it back and only 4-letter callsigns were issued. Is that still correct? WNZK is the only two frequency AM in use as well? And CHYR, 710 days, 730 nights had a station in Bowling Green Ohio on 730 as well with low power, b...

Re: Worst-sounding radio stations of all-time.

SuperStation 910 when the HD kicks in will destroy what's left of our DX-impaired hearing. All of the Sirius-based stations and 1/3 of the XM-based stations. Half of the satellators that have an FM translator use a $3.99 AM radio to feed the audio to the FM, and that is not a complement. And yes, wh...

Re: BAS gets big FCC fine!

It's just that they're a small company; I am still taken aback how much that they think the value of this property is? Over half a million?
