WURO & WUWB

Anyone in the central Michigan area know if WURO channel 18 Roscommon and WUWB West Branch channel 20 are on the air or not. Someone several months ago posted something about them both being off the air, but I couldn't find that post. RabbitEars still shows them on the air, but I was camping near We...

Re: More From The WWJ History Card

I see 7 or 8 additional towers for WCHB/WMKM mentioned a couple places. It looks like it would have been 17 towers total, 6 in one pattern, 12 in the other pattern, one tower in common to Day and Night pattern. This does go along with the story that Harold Munn had plans for a 21 tower array in his...

Re: WTWS 92.1 The Twister Off-Air??

Who actually owned it when it was WVXH? Was it a lease type arrangement? Wasn't it just a rebroadcast of WVXU? I can't find any Transfers of Control or Sales in that time period online. In June of 2002 it was transfered to CINCINNATI CLASSICAL PUBLIC RADIO INC In April of 2006 it was transfered to ...

Re: WTWS 92.1 The Twister Off-Air??

Got back to Houghton Lake a few years ago. Seems like there's a WalMart where the WHGR towers used to stand. But at the time, the studio was close by the old location. The original Walmart was at this location. When Walmart decided to carry groceries, many of the stores relocated. Now Tractor Suppl...

Re: Retro TV WHNE

Can WHNE apply for more power based on actual lack of coverage? WHNE has explained this on their Facebook page, but here it is again. The station now on channel 3 actually covers more area now than it did on channel 20/14 except for Canada. Canada is not in the current pattern with enough power to ...

Re: RePack Phase 8 started

I realize that WTVS broadcasts on 20 now. Then what channel do I enter for Antenna TV, with the recent RePack? I don't know for sure, but you're trying to watch WMYD which has a PSIP channel of 20 and has for years. It seems your TV is not seeing or reacting to the WMYD PSIP info and letting WTVS R...

Re: RePack Phase 8 started

How do I get Antenna TV in the Detroit area? The guide shows that it should be on 20.2, but that’s not the case. Uh, yes it is. Seeing AntennaTV on 20.2 right now. Comcast-Xfinity ch 286 Unfortunately I’m getting one of the PBS channels on 20.2 (in Novi). You do realize that WTVS/PBS broadcasts on ...

Re: Biden is 110% innocent

Under "Trump Logic™" abusing women who "wanted it" is perfectly fine. Not a single Trump voter should have an issue with this situation. If it's ok for Trump to buy sex from porn stars, then zip it on Biden. Poor TC Talks has a caught a bad case of "Trump derangement syndrome". We're talking about ...

Re: WOTV - Virtual Channel 4?

The channel rebranding stations like WOTV is mainly for the benefit of cable subscribers who make up the bulk of the station's audience. Even with the uptick in cord-cutting and 48% increase in OTA viewership over eight years, it still amounted to only 14% of total viewership as of last year: https...

Re: two heartbreaking stories

This posting may be incorrect. Robin sadly did pass away. Tom Ryan, the CKLW engineer, not Dick Purtan sidekick, died. There was a Johnny Williams DJ from somewhere other than Detroit, who died. I’ll try to track down more information on him. From The Big 8 CKLW FB page: It is with great sadness th...

Re: Retro TV WHNE

Hi, I'm a new member. Did WHNE cut back on their transmission power since the move to RF3? Was able to receive it most of the time at 50%. I am about 43 miles ENE of the tower. Very few people in our neck of the woods received this channel before. Now only a signal as high as 10%. The present set-u...
