Here's a 1980 Cheboygan listing from americanradiohistory.com:

2 - CJIC
5 - WTOM
9 - WWUP

WGTU, WJRT and WKBD were also carried, as was one of those old-timey real-time weather camera channels that were commonplace on 1970's cable systems. This system only carried a total of seven channels, which was a rarity even for 1980. Sun Cablevision owned this system in 1980, not TCI.
Thanks for the info. Had not heard of americanradiohistory. Until Charter took over and connected Cheboygan to TC headend, Cheboygan always had a smaller lineup than most in Northern MI. Also, fiber wasn't brought into Cheboygan until 1996/97, which was also later than many in the Northern MI market.
Here is what some communities in Northern Michigan carried in 1980 besides WCMU/WCML, WGTU/WGTQ, WPBN/WTOM, and WWTV/WWUP (1980 calls listed):
Traverse City had WBAY, WCML, WFRV, WKBD, WLUK, and WZZM
Manistee had WBAY, WFRV, WLUK, WMVS, WTMJ, WVTV, and WZZM [but no WCMU]
Ludington had WBAY, WFRV, WGN (pre-satellite), WGVC, WISN, WITI, WKZO, WLUK, WMVS, WOTV, WTMJ, WVTV, and WZZM [no WCMU; some were part time; Ludington still has WGVC (now WGVU) and WZZM to this day; this system also carried WBAY/WFRV/WLUK until 2009 and had WITI/WMVS/WTMJ into the late 1990s; also lost WGTU for several years before re-adding it in 2014]
Cadillac had WGVC, WNEM, WJRT, WKBD, WTMJ (for some odd reason), and WZZM
Big Rapids had WGVC, WJIM, WJRT, WKZO, WNEM, WOTV, and WZZM [still has WGVC (now WGVU) and WZZM; also lost WGTU for several years before re-adding it in 2014]
Beulah had WBAY, WFRV, WLUK, and WPNE
Charlevoix had WJRT and WKBD
Grayling had WEYI, WJRT, WKBD, WNEM, and WUCM [still has WNEM]
Newberry had CJIC, CKCY, WJMN, WKBD, WLUC, WLUK, and WNMU [but no WCMU; WNMU still carried instead of WCMU to this day]
Petoskey had WJRT, WKBD, and WNEM [but no PBS at all]
Sault Michigan had WJRT, WKBD, WNEM, and WNMU [but no WCMU; WNMU still carried instead of WCMU to this day]

Interesting that Petoskey didn't have a PBS station at all.

Also from 1980, here's what the lineup looked like in Lock Haven, Pennsylvania, where one of my relatives was born back in the 1930's. Lock Haven is in the Scranton/Wikes-Barre DMA, though barely.

Cox Cable Lock Haven, 1980 (source: https://www.americanradiohistory.com/hd ... 20haven%22)
2 - WNEP (ABC)
3 - WPSX (PBS, Clearfield)
4 - WTAJ (CBS, Altoona)
5 - WBRE (NBC)
6 - WPIX (Independent, New York City)
7 - HBO (they were really early to embrace HBO, especially being in the DMA where it was founded back in 1972!)
8 - WJAC (NBC, Johnstown)
9 - WNEW (Independent, New York City)
10 - most likely WVIA (PBS, Scranton); but for some reason isn't listed in the linked source
11 - WOR (Independent, New York City)
12 - WHP (CBS, Harrisburg)
13 - WTPA (ABC, Harrisburg)

Comcast currently owns this system.

An application from 1950 (yes, you are reading that correctly!) in the FCC Cable Search listed the following channels to be carried:
  • WBRE
  • WHP TV
  • WHTMTV
  • WJACTV
  • WNEPTV
  • WNYW
  • WPIX
  • WPSXTV
  • WTAJTV
  • WTAPTV
  • WVIATV
  • WWOR
  • WYOU


My furthest DTV tropo: KDKA Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at 202 miles for three days in January 2017 and a night in September 2017 with only an Antennas Direct C2V!

Current setup: Antennas Direct C2Max (2018-present)

I vaguely remember The Nostalgia Channel. They showed reruns of old variety shows like Tony Orlando and Leslie Uggams, (a little like Apsire used to show The Flip Wilson show.) I'm not 100 percent sure on this but that's what I think.

I remember it VERY well, Buckeye Cable offered it during the late 80's/early 90's. I think they mostly had movies on back then, classic commercials and shorts. A shame there isn't any footage of it on YouTube to see.

My furthest DTV tropo: KDKA Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at 202 miles for three days in January 2017 and a night in September 2017 with only an Antennas Direct C2V!

Current setup: Antennas Direct C2Max (2018-present)
