Re: Which Metro Detroit cities are declining and which are improving?

I live in Pontiac, and I must say that while the city doesn't *look* much better to outsiders, there have been improvements. I've been near pontiac general hospital for four years now - have never had a problem. that being said: 1. there are a few parts of town that I still wouldn't recommend visiti...

Re: Detroit rapper and comedian tries to cash in on UAW strike

There are now laws in place to cover exactly what the UAW was created to "fight for".

The UAW is a drain on society.

Re: Straight Talk vs. Verizon

straight talk and other mvnos leverage the big four networks, and also limit top speeds. you can buy several different straight talk sim cards, they correspond with which networks you'll be using: att/tmo or vz/sprint/us cellular most MVNO on VZ's network are really a good value if you can handle be...

Re: CKWW

With as well heard as ckww is across metro Detroit during all hours, I have a hard time believing it's only running 500w. I don't listen regularly, but anytime I have it seems so strong that there'd have to be some serious dx going on to completely wipe it out. Not impossible, just impressive.

Re: The atrocity known as AM HD radio

It is my opinon that the biggest problem with HD radio quality is not even the crappy bandwidth used, giving the tinny "digital" sound that xm and sirius does..... The biggest problem in my opinion is that it seems to me like the source audio into the HD exciter is almost ALWAYS after an analog comp...

Wwj-tv off air

Was just watching wwj when it went off air. Maybe has something to do with all of this wind?

WMYD is also down

Re: Interference @ 103.1 MHz in northern Oakland County

Just noticed w231cv 94.1 is live from the north edge of Pontiac now, with a Holly COL. absolutely no sign of WWDK on the car stereo anymore in Pontiac. Same terrible programming and amateurish audio chain.

Re: WHLX 1590 and 92.7

I was just under the assumption that WHLS/WHLX were under the same ownership. I wasn't sure if 105.5 was technically a translator for HLS or HLX.

I heard what sounds to me like a beacon of some kind the other day. It was strongest near Lone Pine and Middlebelt, and was only on for the day (but on all day long)

Any ideas what this could be?

Re: Metro Detroit CB

Have been hearing various E-skip (or perhaps F2?) just about every morning for the last week now. Texas and Oklahoma seem most common, but have heard TN and FL as well. These guys don't really uh.....formally identify or locate. I've keyed in a few times but don't think anyone has heard me (or is si...

Re: "Detroit's Wheels" on WDTW-HD3

It just seems odd to me that this station can't lock in my radio, because my car typically has excellent reception and HD locking ability. I'd like to listen to it more. Streaming the iHeart app isn't a great option for me since I don't have a high data plan to accommodate LTE streaming every day. ...
