I don't dabble much on AM, but CKGM has a strong signal on the west side of the state at night

Re: Blarney Stone Broadcasting and Roy Henderson

I was up in Kaleva yesterday afternoon and 92.3 WBNZ was broadcasting CBS Sports Radio // to 101.1 WGRY (which I was surprisingly able to get there considering WIXX and WJML's translator). 92.3 was about 5-10 seconds behind 101.1. 99.3 WQAN was // to 100.3 WQON (which was mixing with WNCY). 92.3 has...

Re: Blarney Stone Broadcasting and Roy Henderson

Where is 99.3 broadcasting from (I'm guessing somewhere in/near Traverse City)? I got a 99.3 playing Van Hagar's Right Now last night coming home from a basketball game. That song is not something WOWN in Shawano would play. How much are 99.3 and 100.3 delayed? I tried checking 100.3, but it was all...

Re: Breaking: Nexstar reaches agreement to purchase Tribune

Grand Rapids is way too large of a market for Northwest Broadcasting (most of their markets are smaller than Traverse City-Cadillac and some are smaller than Marquette)

Re: Cable systems that do not carry all network affiliates from their home DMA

Buckeye in Bedford, MI still doesn't carry WTVS despite that system adding both WWJ and WMYD in recent years. Kind of ironic in that WTVS is one of two stations from Detroit that could be carried fully in Toledo (CBET is the other). However, both of Toledo's PBS members (WGTE and WBGU [WBGU's only c...

Re: Cable systems that do not carry all network affiliates from their home DMA

Charter Spectrum systems in Sturgis and Coldwater (Grand Rapids DMA) don't carry WZZM or WGVU. Charter Spectrum in Clare (Traverse City-Cadillac DMA [mostly]) doesn't carry WGTU, but carries all the Big Four from Flint-Saginaw and the other Big Four stations (and WXII-LP!!) from Traverse City-Cadill...

Re: Towns that should be in other DMAs

Pentwater and Walkerville (and maybe even Hart) in Oceana County, as well as some townships in northern Newaygo County, should be in the Traverse City-Cadillac DMA. If not for WZZM having its stick near Grant and 29&8 being a joke of an ABC affiliate with a stick near Kalkaska to boot, Oceana County...

Re: Mount Pleasant 11/27

Yeah, CCW's signal mostly goes to the north over the water. Aside from when strong conditions from Northern Michigan come in down here in Fremont, it's all Chicago and Detroit here and Green Bay is very common too. Traverse City is comparatively rare on the frequency. WCCW is the easiest of the Tra...

Re: Toledo radio Predictions for 2019

Very long shot: WMTR buys 106.5 and keeps the sports format (with both 96.1 and 106.5 airing Los Tigres)

Re: Mount Pleasant 11/27

WCDY is running Christmas music. You pulled WGPR over WCCW I was surprised that I got WCCW at all in Mt. Pleasant considering how bad its signal is in Manistee and Ludington. However, my biggest surprises were getting WGLQ with no sign of WXYT and getting both WQLQ and WYCD with 100kW WUGN next door

Mount Pleasant 11/27

I was in Mount Pleasant for a day last week and I had time to take a bandscan. 88.1 – WLGH Leroy Township (6.7kW @ 66 mi) 88.3 – WEJC White Star (55kW @ 35 mi) 88.5 – WIAB Mackinaw City (50kW @ 136 mi) 88.7 – WIAA Interlochen (100kW @ 66 mi) 89.1 – WLKB Bay City (50kW @ 40 mi) 89.5 – WCMU Mount Plea...

Re: Rimshots

I am able to get WKQZ and WCEN here in Grayling. I have actually got WKQZ as far as Cadillac! That is in-part due to WKQZ's luxury of being the only station in the entire state, both Upper and Lower Peninsula, broadcasting on the 93.3 frequency. Speaking of which, how did they get so lucky? That's ...
