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...

Re: TV5’s “A moment of calm”

Virus or no virus, we're still in the election season. Most of it has all been pulled as a lot of other advertising has been pulled too. Stations are just filling these time slots with promos and "calm" spots. Would you rather they filled with 800 numbers selling Boxcar Willie CD's or Ginsu knives?

Re: Retro TV WHNE

Too bad a lot of the metro cant receive it now...……….. :barf If a lot of metro can't receive WHNE, then they need to get an antenna that's capable of receiving a Low VHF signal. People have been spoiled into thinking they can watch TV with a tiny little mouse pad size antenna stuck to the wall insi...

Re: RePack Phase 8 started

I am getting a good signal (Waterford) using a big amplified roof top antenna that I use for DX'n. I have a stacker that I use for VHF and a 4 bay on another pole that feeds all the tv's in the house. I can get WHNE but the signal is very low and drops out. Since I only use the vhf portion of the s...

Re: RePack Phase 8 started

WHNE is going to be switching to virtual channel 3. On their Facebook, they made a post referring to their movie channel as "soon to be on channel 3.6" Seems like their viewership would increase, at least for the OTA viewers. Don't think that would help them with placement on cable though. WHNE is ...

Re: RePack Phase 8 started

AFAIK, WPXD 31 (RF 24) is on its new antenna on the 11 Mile Rd. candelabra. WWJ-TV 62 (44) and WTVS 56 (20) are on from atop the 8 Mile Rd. candelabra, having moved off the "community" temp side mount. WMYD 20 (21 - 8 Mile Rd,) and WKBD 50 (34 - 11 Mile Rd.)switched at Phase 3 last June, and have n...
