Notice to all Buzzboard readers & posters: A requested server migration took place Saturday evening. Unfortunately, I did not re-point my DNS records to the new server until roughly 7:45p ET on Monday, November 12. As a result, any posts and new user registrations occurring between the nighttime hours of 11/10 and approximately 7:45p ET on Monday, 11/12 have been lost.

This was unavoidable, and the longer I waited to re-point to the new server, the greater the number of posts that would've been lost.

Please feel free to resubmit any threads / posts you created. They will NOT be lost this time! Many thanks for your patience these past couple of weeks while I've worked to migrate the Buzzboard to a more secure, more robust platform.

Re: TV channel Question in Northern Michigan

Hey Brian P...I live in Prudenville as well...right on Houghton Lake. I have used one of those signal boosters for years.

Re: Rimshots

I do wish that the Tri-Cities stations and the Flint stations did a better job over the whole area. It would be great to see the radio market combined and ranked the same as the TV. At least the Tri-Cities/Flint is really only two radio markets. The Traverse City-Cadillac TV market has at least fiv...

Re: February 2017 Tropos

Yesterday I had slightly stronger than usual Escanaba and Door County stations. I also noticed that the 106.3 in Escanaba might be simulcasting WCHT (AM) now as I had a mystery 106.3 in (under The Mitten for the most part) with Rush Limbaugh. Also heard an ad for a truck driver training school with ...

Re: Why do most Chicago stations transmit with low wattage?

Speaking of Chicago stations, I bet there are times Kiss gets interfered with by TCM up near Six Flags. Same with KQX and 101 WIXX.

Re: 106.3 in Esky

I heard a mystery signal on 106.3 mixing with the Mitten in Manistee. It was airing Rush Limbaugh. I wonder if 106.3 is now simulcasting WCHT (who airs Rush in Escanaba)

Re: Northern MI Radio Predictions for 2017

I heard Green Day's "Basket Case" on that station once. AND IT ISN'T EVEN CLASSIC ROCK! Many classic rockers are now playing more 90s cuts. Well when did the term "Classic Rock" come into being? As I recall, "Classic Rock, The Bear" started around '98 or so, and being nearly 20 years later, the 90s...

I thought ch 13 was Fox.
WEDU is channel 3 (virtual) and RF 13. FOX is RF 12 and virtual 13.

There are a few stations that could end up moving to WUSF's RF 34:
WXPX (RF 42, ION)
WTOG (RF 44, CW)
WFTT (RF 47, UniMas)

Re: TVO to become TVOHNO?!

There's also (possible) collusion between non-related companies as the CBC has forced people outside the major (mostly capital) cities to shell out $$$ for cable or satellite in order to see their programming. Also, CBC has dumped their remaining privately-owned affiliates in remote parts of Western...

WWMT 3 in Kalamazoo runs twin 1080i feeds with Comet in standard definition on 3.3. WTVG 13 in Toledo (but ser...

Sounds like there's collusion between television stations and the cable and satellite industry in Canada.

Re: CMU Sells Flint WCMZ-TV In FCC Spectrum Auction

If they were to dump (or move) a station in the auction, I thought WCMW would either go silent or move to VHF Low.
