Re: WJBK signal interference?

I've been noticing lately that we're seeing a lot of periodic tiling on FOX2. Signal seems fine for a while, then there will be a few minutes of intermittent tiling and loss of audio, then it will be OK for a bit. I'm wondering if there could be other things causing interference, that, coupled with...

Re: WPON WCXI Updates - 2019

Both stations are on today although WPON is back to playing Motown and announcing that they are testing. I am expecting another 20 year STA extension from WPON by the end of this week.

Re: WPON WCXI Updates - 2019

WCXI is off the air today (September 3, 2019). Therefore, I decided to recheck the expiration dates of authorizations of both WCXI and WPON. First WPON received this authorization on March 11, 2019: "THE LICENSEE RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS AN EXTENSION ITS CURRENT STA (COPY ATTACHED). AT THIS TIME, THE ...

1160 was easily receivable from Ann Arbor when driving through today. It was strong enough to stop the seek.
Also they seem to be back to regular programming with whoever their on-air talent are. The signal for me is perfect however I am less than 3 miles from the new transmission site.

Re: Has WCXI 1160 moved to Milford Twp?

Are they still in testing mode? Any peep out of 1460? WCXI seems to be on the air every day just playing music and periodically providing a station ID unlike WPON which as you know was playing oldies and providing the testing announcement. WPON is in another period of being off. I wonder if the tes...

Re: Has WCXI 1160 moved to Milford Twp?

The last few days WCXI has been off the air from the new site. WPON hasn't been testing for over three weeks so both stations are off. Since I'm only about two miles from the new transmitting site I can clearly tell when they're up and running or off for whatever reason.

ION Life - channel 31.3 - is now "Ion Plus."
That ION Plus on 31.3 I'm viewing on 50.5 as well. Its July 12, 2019 at 9PM when I took the chance that 50.5 might be up and running.

I wish WJR would kick Bitch Albom out the door but I don't expect that to happen even if Hell freezes over.
