WKBD Testing on RF34

Post by windsor » Fri Apr 19, 2019 9:45 am

Saw last night around 1030pm WKBD had a test pattern on RF34 getting ready for the move from RF14.


WLLZ needs to bring Sreaming Scott to Morning's on 106.7

I did a rescan and didn't pick anything up on 34. But good to know they are testing.

I hope when WKBD moves the RF to Channel 34 the signal will be better than RF 14.

For me it has been the opposite. The lower the RF channel the more stable the signal is for me. So I am a little worried that WKBD might start having issues in bad weather and high winds after it moves. I am really looking forward to 4, 7, and 62 moving during Phase 8.

There is an entirely new antenna on the candelabra for RF34. WKBD's antenna on 14 is a side mount below the platform.

That's good to hear. For me in Shelby Twp I never had any issues on 50, it was one of the more reliable stations for me. Which is why I was happy that Comet moved to 50-2 from 19.

By June 21st, I am sure they will have a scrolling warning on screen before the switch is made.
