Re: Server response issues when posting

It appears the posting response issue is back... Just had a timeout from CloudFlare posting a reply in the Metro Detroit forum, although what I posted did show up (based on me reopening that section in a new tab).

Re: And it approaches....

I had a feeling that it wouldn't be very long until yet another carriage dispute erupted, after the ones involving DISH Network and Meredith (owners of WNEM in Bay City/Saginaw/Flint) and AT&T vs. Nexstar broke out in such a short period of time. It's interesting that you mentioned the Buckeye/WNWO ...

Re: Nexstar in Flap With DIRECTV and AT&T-UVerse

The local TV stations make the claim that the programming they offer--even when they merely relay network programming--is something of value and therefore they are entitled to compensation. Some of this dates back to the old analog days when over-the-air stations often had static or ghosting. Getti...

Re: WMYD To Host Detroit’s First ATSC 3.0 Signal

https://transition.fcc.gov/fcc-bin/tvq?call=WMYD WMYD's repack RF31 CP is for 935kW ERP at 324m HAAT. The 'weaker' RF21 is likely the 'interim' STA, 470kW ERP at 244.6m HAAT, actually a 'broadband' antenna that is separate from the RF 21 antenna WMYD has been using since the middle of last decade (w...

Re: July 1st: Get ready to pay more for auto insurance

If this bullshit over our auto insurance doesn't stop anytime soon, then I suggest everybody should DEMAND that Sam Bernstein, Jay Trucks, Lee Steinberg, Mike Morse, Geoffery Feiger, and other "injury attorneys" that advertise all over TV be disbarred from practicing law.
