Re: CKLW-FM/CIDR's Original Transmitter Site

The Canada Trust Building is now the Metropolitan Building. It was built sometime in 1929 and is still around, sitting at 176 University Street West (at the NE corner of the intersection with Victoria Avenue).

Re: Schitt's Creek

i enjoy local free television, not because i'm cheap, but because i'm on a limited budget and have to make due with what I have available... that and I like to try to support my local AM/FM/TV stations and the stores that advertise on them. Shows like Schitt's Creek make me glad I kept my rooftop an...

Re: Schitt's Creek

I checked CW 50's schedule and it doesn't list the show yet... is there a date for when it will begin airing?

I also thought that FOX picked up syndication rights to it, but Fox 2 isn't airing it either...

Re: CKOT 1510

about a decade ago, it got approval to migrate to the FM band as CJDL-FM 107.3.

Then, it and its sister, CKOT-FM 101.3 got bought by Rogers Media.

Re: Linux: who here uses it?

I use Windows on my primary machine (an Asus laptop), but I have a much older desktop tower from around 2008 that runs Linux... and I run Windows Subsystem for Linux for when I need to try stuff out without wanting to turn on a second machine. The Linux machine (and WSL configuration) are used mostl...

Re: Sinclair supports Black Lives Matter

he gets a guaranteed outlet to broadcast his own TV show, and he gets to say he owns a station since he's the head of Howard Stirk Communications... but he pays Sinclair to do all the hard work of actually *running* it so he doesn't have to deal with that hassle... If you look in FCC filings, Cunnin...

Re: Channel 31

That would be ION Television's station, WPXD-TV. It moved from UHF 50 to UHF 24. You might have to try typing in "24" on your TV set so it re-maps to the new frequency. Of course, if you're south of Detroit, that will likely get you WNWO Toledo instead. WNWO's now on UHF 23. They had to move for th...
