Re: RePack Phase 8 started

WHNE-LD that actually tries ends up on RF 3 where many people won't even be able to pick them up. But WHPS, WUDT, WDWO, WLPC, and WULD all have better RF channels but I always delete them from my channel list.

Re: Will history repeat itself? (Network switch)

Sounds like your antenna doesn't have good Hi VHF elements (RF 7-13). As for network switching I don't see the point now that channel numbers are virtual, Fox switched channels because it didn't want it's stations out in the UHF range, they wanted to be in the VHF range with the other major networks...

Re: Mike Halloran coming to WDET for a special "Radios In Motion" show

Mike Halloran is one of my favorite DJs of all time, once I discovered him late night on WDET I followed him from radio station to radio station till he moved out west. I even remember during the early days of 88.7 "the Cutting Edge of Rock" there would be on air segments where he and Greg St. James...

Re: wllz

There was like 5 minutes of dead air after the deep cut of the day, "Let It Go" Def Leppard, before "Summer of 69" Bryan Adams. Almost thought Doug Podell passed out or there was going to be another format change.

Re: GetTV gets upgrade

I guess it all depends on what you consider a stable signal. Currently CBC (RF 9) and Fox2 (RF 7) are the only VHF I can get, and they are considered Hi-VHF, but they are the most stable signals I get. I have multi-path issues with the Higher UHF signals, anything above 30 I can get periods of the c...
