Re: Projected President-Elect Joe Biden

Where's the beef? If you've got the evidence, show it in court and claim your victory. If not, then STFU and accept your loss.

Re: There will be some very surprised people if West Michigan ever has a real disaster,

The best they can do is simulcast a TV station that actually does have news. I was chasing a tornado from Hamilton to Wyoming a while back and the only station with any information was WOOD, and that was only because they were rebroadcasting the TV-8 audio stream. We had an active tornado moving tow...

Re: Goodrich looks to transfer WPRR FM 90.1 to Tyrone Bynum

Why would anyone want it? Even in the best of times, it seemed to be off the air more than on. It's coverage is basically just the rural blueberry fields of NW Allegan county. The signal can reach into south Holland, but that is fringe.

Re: Any News On New WLLA OTA Signals?

I was getting WLLA relatively reliably here last spring. Haven't picked it up in the last month or so. The signal power was low but the quality was high so it was decent overall. I'll watch to see what happens. I did a scan tonight and don't see any changes yet. My issue lately is with WZZM. It was ...

Re: WGVU TV weaker up North since the last repack?

High-VHF was pretty bad for me last weekend. WOOD had dropouts. WWMT didn't even scan. I would try some more before reaching a conclusion. Back in the analog days you could sort of figure out what was happening by checking for distant stations. One might see some unfamiliar channels appear at this t...

Re: WOTV Post Repack

Reception of most stations is very bad out here today on all my antennas, but WOTV comes in strong. WOTV fixed its problems out here for sure. It might even be my strongest signal now. I’ll know more when this current anomaly passes.

Re: WOTV Post Repack

I'm not able to check right now but should be able to later this week. I did see the update online so I've been itching to try it out. Based on the documents and my strong reception of WZPX, I have high expectations for the new WOTV signal. I just wish WWMT could be better out here. Milwaukee channe...

I miss analog pictures. They would reveal so much about the underlying problem. Now one can only guess.

Not really. Not here at least. You can post only because the moderator lets you post. Once he loses patience with you, you have no recourse.

Re: (Ultra Geeky warning): NOAA weather radio for GR area is about to move to new TX site

We were perhaps a bit overserved here in the middle. 162.475 has always been the best signal here in Saugatuck--beating the closer 162.425. 162.550 is still receivable.

What is the POINT of having local political reporters if, by 11 am, they still don't have a story up about the local congressman probably running for the highest office in the land? It'd be like The Press being asleep when Jerry Ford was sworn in and, in fact, The Press covered it very well back th...

Re: WOTV Post Repack

I wonder if Disney even cares about OTA. Even though they have two full-power ABC affiliates here, neither one is able to adequately serve the southwest corner of the DMA right now. Kind of sad when you think about it.

Re: WOTV Post Repack

Thanks for the info!

The one station that could really use a fill-in translator out here is WWMT. I never quite got why they wanted channel 8. WMVS is really powerful and that frequency floats across the lake easily.
