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...

I don't live in WDEO's null - I'm toward the edge of their NE ward lobe - and the signal still stinks.

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.

WDWO is on the air on UHF 22 now with 5 subchannels:

18.1 is Azteca
18.2 is Infomercials
18.3 is more infomercials
18.4 is blank (hopefully Decades soon)
18.5 is 3ABN
Have you noticed that 18.5 also comes up as Channel 1.1

Re: Has WCXI 1160 moved to Milford Twp?

1160 was coming in loud and clear, even stopping on seek mode in the car. Has 1160 moved, or is this just a freak occurrence?

Re: OTA channels MIA

The first version (Channel 62) was built on a budget, near 14 Mile and Beck, an area that was considered rural at the time. The theory was that they could use a shorter tower because the elevation was higher. On Detroit's East Side, it was weak, and, when it was windy, it would lose sync as if it w...

Re: How much of the news show is scripted?

So Bill Bonds did this on the news set when re-writing scripts and stories . . . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VuLNtRvU0CU This specific clip shows a pre-tape session to record a news promo and you can clearly see his frustration with inferior writing. This was not live on the air. Most of the ne...

Re: OTA channels MIA

What part of the metro area are you in SixPlusOne? WJBK is always a strong signal for me in Shelby Twp.... I live in Commerce Township which is north of Walled Lake. I have an antenna on a rotor on a single story house. I usually leave it pointed generally to the southeast. It is very rare that I l...

Re: OTA channels MIA

Well it's Monday evening (6-24-19) after 8:30 PM and no WJBK channels. And yes I did a re-scan and it's still not there but every other channel is.

Re: How much of the news show is scripted?

For those that worked in the business, just how much of the local broadcasts are scripted and how closely do the anchors have to follow the script? I know the actual stories are written and they mostly follow the teleprompter for those (which makes sense), but how much of the banter and transitiona...

Channel 50 Testing 34.1

I did a new scan today. I usually get 40 channels. Today I got 39 and that got me wondering and I discovered WKBD-TV airing bars and tone on Channel 34.1. I expect for reasons this entire forum knows about we will see a lot more of this in the months to come. Keeping doing a scan at least twice a w...
