Re: Winter P2 Arbitrends (Updated: 03-27-19)Grand Rapids

Why is Cumulus N/A MIA? What if if the WNWZ format went from the translator to one of the Class As Townsquare has? Much bigger ratings but hard to sell in GR? In 1979, WDZZ Flint signed on and was #1 the first book out. I don't remember it being less than #3 since. Occasionally WCRZ is #1. Before so...

Re: WPON Update - 2019

I'm getting what I would estimate to be about 0.1 mV/m near there on the GM Delco (2003) Trail Blazer Radio. Mid Day around Solar Noon, I was getting what was probably WBNS Columbus Daytime Skywave stronger at times than WPON, on the GM Delco 2003 Trail Blazer radio.

Re: Getting The Hell Out Of Saginaw, Bay City And Flint

The secret to medication with minimum side effects and addiction potentenial is Titration! Titration! Titration! Since they have gotten away from a lot of Analytical Chemistry in Pre Professional Programs, this principle is lost on a lot of students. Because practitioners are now so under the gun, b...

Re: Getting The Hell Out Of Saginaw, Bay City And Flint

I was just at a Pain Management Continuing Education Seminar last week. They showed a study about using Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen together, being as good as opioids for pain. And close to zero addiction potential. So if you are in pain, as some who post here are, you may want to try this combinati...

Re: WBKB Footage Unearthed... At Last!

It's interesting to see that the map behind her shows Bay County as being in their coverage area. I wonder if the shift of CBS affiliation from WEYI (25) to WNEM (5, and a transmitter site further north, closer to Alpena) hurt WBKB. Note that WBKB has a short tower and DA nulling the West. Was that...

Re: Are 50KW Clear Channel Stations in Jeopardy?

Actually, except for International Region 2 Treaties, Class As are not protected domestically for 750 miles. There is a POLICY that forbids Class B cochannel stations within 750 miles of Class As, but Class Ds are allowed just outside the 0.5 mV/m 50% Skywave Predicted Contour of the Class A using t...

Re: Network tv switch, nearly 25 years later: who was the winner?

When UHF stations first came on the air, they often were fairly low ERP. They were initially envisioned as local stations serving a small to medium sized city and the area surrounding it. An 80 dBu city grade signal often went out 10 or 20 miles. But WGPR-TV was not even that level of "low" power. I...

Re: WBKB Footage Unearthed... At Last!

I saw where WBKB was originally supposed to be an ABC affiliate on the same tower as WCML, but WGTU stopped them. Speaking of the Microwave Relay, WKBD was also on that. WKBD was on most cable systems in the state (the only exceptions being far SW Michigan and the Ludington/Manistee area) I think t...

Why Is It I Always Think This Thread Is About WLS-TV When I See The Title?

Why Is It I Always Think This Thread Is About WLS-TV When I See The Title? I keep thinking they found Bob Balaban's first childhood screen test amongst the old films. Yes. The Channel 11 Allotment. It got kicked around for decades before signing on. So late that the WBKB-TV call letters were availab...

Are BS&T really Canadian?

If Ann Arbor is close enough, this remake may count.

Re: This Man Has It All! Which Will He Choose?

Usually, wives do think a few steps ahead. As do geek husbands. Big upside of geek husbands. And they fix things that break/break down around the house, instead of going to Sports Bars-or worse. The downside. "I can't get anything new, because he keeps fixing the old stuff." "I could throw all this ...

I'm sure that the irony and symbolism is not lost on the wife, actress or real. I can only imagine what she is thinking with her hand on his shoulder. "I wish he would show a similar interest in me.
