Re: Numerous FM translators are off the air this morning

There was a power failure across the street from this tower site in Oak Park from Saturday night until Sunday afternoon. It only effected a few DTE customers, but one of those customers was the tower site. The three full power TV stations were on generators, but everything else was off the air for s...

Re: Longtime WGHN Sales Rep Leslie Cassis Withun Passes Away

I did not know Leslie or you, but wanted to tell you that was a wonderful story about your friend! I honestly can say that from what you said, I almost know her. I'm sorry for your loss Jesse.

Re: CBSDetroit62

Can Channel 62 just call it something else they are on RF 44 they should be CBS 44 just think a new image and new identity. WWJ -TV 44 Detroit. They can brand the station any way they wish. The FCC requires that the PSIP virtual channel data reflect the station's former analog designation. Off-air ...

Re: WCRZ breaks FCC rule

You do know the FCC doesn't care what they post on they're web site, don't you? The FCC is only interested in what is broadcast.

Broadcast political rules for local offices are different than the rules for national or state offices.

Did they buy to send high-speed data?
M33 Media is a wireless internet provider in that whole area from north of Fairview Mio area to south of West Branch. Have been for several years, long before he purchased the LPTV stations.

Re: WURO & WUWB

Camping near West Branch, eh? Kicking the tires on WBMI perhaps? With an FM, and a couple of LPTV's, you could be king of all media in Ogemaw County. Bring on the $5 spots! We sold both of those stations to Glen Wilson/M33 Media. I wondered if he still had them on the air. RabbitEars shows them on,...

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...

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.

Under "Trump Logic™" abusing women who "wanted it" is perfectly fine. Not a single Trump voter should have an issue with this situation.
