South Haven Bandscan

This site is atop a high dune in South Haven, meaning that there is a 360-degree line-of-sight so inland stations can also be received, which is different from many other coastal sites. A second visit here was made in mid-October due to confusion over 91.7 and 91.9, which was solved on that date. Ot...

Re: WPRR's 102.5 translator

90.1 has been operating as normally as I have tuned it in, but I can recall that when they first came on the air last summer and were just airing dead air, a kind message to them just curious about the station went totally ignored (pretty common for radio). Thanks for giving a flying f*ck about your...

Re: Lake Michigan FM Bandscans

1. WCMM is now 60kW, but with no other changes (still same TL and HAAT) Thanks. I always appreciate corrections. As you could imagine, dealing with this much info in each scan x100 scans (literally 100) means I copy and paste a lot from my existing logs in the region and changes don't always get up...

Re: LAV STA/application status

Word from the station is that the signal came into use from the Allendale site at 7pm on July 16th. Until the Nash move occurs on 97.5, LAV is running their licensed 7.2kw. They hope to be at full power - 43kw - by January, but don't seem to have high hopes for that at this time.

Hart Rest Area Bandscan

The rest area at Hart (between Hart and Shelby on southbound US-31) is perhaps the best location along the east shore of Lake Michigan for listening. It's at the top of the steady 200-foot incline if you're heading northbound, though you'll have to turn back southward to access it. It's a seasonal r...

The final two scans of my 80 total on the Great Lakes were at two inland sites that are line-of-sight to the lake, not to mention a few hundred feet above it. Ludington Rest Area can be found on US-31 northbound just south of Ludington. It's only about a mile from the water. Take the turnoff road up...

Lake Michigan FM Bandscans

With my project of conducting full bandscans at 80 beaches on the Great Lakes now completed, I'm working on typing out the data from the most recent 35 scans conducted this summer across all 5 lakes (and Lake St. Clair). I'll post some of them here before adding them to my website later on. I know a...
