Re: WHNE channel 14

I use a 150-mile range antenna on a 25-ft tower. I should be able to receive LPTV from Orlando with this thing. LOL 150 mile antennas are absolute BS. You got scammed Very true. Broader statement: you'd do best to ignore any claim on "range". It's completely subjective, nobody is there to question ...

Re: WHNE channel 14

Out of curiosity, how many watts is WHNE? I have a hard time receiving it in Livonia. I'm surprised you'd have trouble receiving them in Livonia. Granted, 15kW is not very much power, but you're not far away. Are you using an indoor antenna in a room that is neither in the attic nor in an East-faci...

Re: Oldies Stations

I don't have the Canadian regs in front of me as I type this, but Canada has, for decades, regulated broadcast content and demanded an outline of what styles of programming a station intends to broadcast. It's not like the US, where one is free to change content at will once they have a station. One...

Re: Oldies Stations

You all forgot about CKWW? Biggest problem is the cancon law which throws in a bunch of songs listeners on this side of the border dont know or want. Its also on AM, which no one listens to and reception is bad. If it was moved to FM with a few tweaks to the playlist, that would be an easy way to g...

Re: Winter Sporadic E? Pirate? Spanish on 94.1 SE Michigan

I have no idea what you heard on 94.1, but there IS a secondary sporadic-E season, and we are coming into it. Sporadic-E is most likely and most prominent on the solstices (near June 22 and December 22). The winter Es season is generally shorter and not as strong as the summer season, but it sometim...

Re: another WPON update

Not particularly an update of WPON, rather of Google Earth. They recently updated the aerial view of parts of Oakland County. The April 2017 image has been replaced with a July 2018 image. Instead of piles of antenna hardware, you can see seven standing towers . WPON is actually the icing on the cak...

Re: If WDET was sold to a Commercial Broadcaster.

If WDET were to be sold, the eastern portion of the Detroit area (out of range of WUOM) could lose a station that has some intelligent (if, perhaps, a tiny bit tilted) discussion.
Grammar could suffer.

Re: 1310 Translator and Cars 108

I cant help but wonder if W300DI is where the license would place it. It seems to have a better signal at W vernor and Clark than they have at I-96 & Evergreen. To be sure, receiver overload/intermod could be much worse at the site than W Vernor, where the only strong signals are the Windsor and Dow...

WNWO (NBC 24 Toledo) on RF 23

WNWO is currently being seen on RF 23, carrying all four programs (NBC, Stadium, Comet and TBD). I believe this is transmitted from the WTVG tower, significantly below the top, based on a granted STA. As I type this, the same is still being transmitted on RF 49 as well, from WNWO's own tower (WNWO h...

What about WDEZ

Detroit's Eazy Rock

Or WBRZ.

For the Breeze, if available
TV channel 2, Baton Rouge. Frequent sporadic-E catch before the transition, it was at just the right distance for Es.

Re: New News Channel coming to WHNE 14.9

I have an antenna in attic and have no problem whatsoever, the problem is the TV station it’s a low power station and just naturally is limited to a small footprint for coverage area my question is why so many subs even full power stations don’t have 9 subs. They can do many subs because they do no...

Re: New Oldies Format Station in Chicago

Arthur Momenter mentioned the 104.7 translator that was co-channel to WIOT. I had a strong signal from that translator when I was working on Detroit's East Side. That translator had been on the air for a long tome (I believe more than a year), retransmitting classical/jazz-formatted WRCJ 90.9 (usele...

Re: New Oldies Format Station in Chicago

Would an FM oldies station still work here in Detroit ? I mean, I know advertisers dislike that age group, but age 55+ are NOT the only age group that enjoys 50s and 60s music. That's what they don't seem to be able to comprehend. I remember, I believe it was the early nineties, when WOMC was playi...
