Re: Antenna Man

I bought a couple of those "overpriced pieces of junk" at a Salvation Army for $5 each. These were the blade type in an unopened "As Seen On TV" package that attached directly to the back of the TV (no cord). These were really junk and did not work at all. I was disappointed as I was hoping they wou...

Re: Another Case

Employee A: Yes, he was not at fault according to the police. If anyone, the foreman should have been fired for putting his life in danger (using poor judgement). Employee B: Yes, as there was no evidence such as not seeing (a photo would be ideal) the actual beverage. It could have been non-alcohol...

Re: My YouTube "At Work" Playlist

A rather inexpensive way to get started is to buy something like the C.Crane FM transmitters: https://ccrane.com/digital-fm-transmitter-2-for-sending-near-broadcast-quality/ I have two of these, one for over 10 years. They are on 24/7/365 and continue to work great. You can increase output power by ...

Re: Happy 100th Birthday 8MK / WBL / WWJ

Isn't KDKA the only radio station east of the Mississippi to start with K? Just remembered (or I think I remember) that being the case. If you are asking about current stations, there are many exceptions. The closest to us is KTGG (Okemos, MI). From Michiguide.com: "1984: Call sign KTGG assigned in...

Re: Are Section 73.239 and Section 73.635 Being Enforced?

Another great tool I use for tower hunting and also what station is broadcasting from a drive-by tower, is Google Earth (download) with the FCCInfo.com plugin. All of this is free. There are several ways to search stations (AM, FM, and TV). By clicking in a checkbox, it will show ASR Towers and you ...

Re: WXLA 1170

Haven't seen an AM stereo receiver marketed since the 90's. Do they even make 'em anymore? To my knowledge, only in Japan. However, some HD receivers are capable of CQUAM AM stereo. Here is a link to the AM stereo website (click on Receivers to see the list): http://www.amstereo.org/ . I have the D...

Re: WXLA 1170

WXLA sounded great when they were in stereo. It was shut off when they redid their transmitter site to make way for HD in case it was decided to go that route.

Re: The Ghost Of Bill Kennedy

Thanks websurferdude! I'll try using your info and see what it turns up. The only other celebrity I recall in it was Mel Farr. This was when he was selling cars as "Mel Farr Superstar".
