Re: Channel-Sharing, Canadian Style

Ringtail, I think Windsor is the only city that doesn't have a signal of a Global channel. Am I right in saying that??? It has CIII-TV-22 near Stephenson, though it has the awkward disadvantage that the antenna has to be turned around, since most non-cable Windsorites usually have their antennas ai...

Re: RePack Phase 8 started

It wouldn't surprise me if this e-skip everyone worries about isn't a problem either. We'll see in the summer. But I think it's a dramatization. We're not yet into sporadic-e and tropo season, which can run into early summer. Whether it's a problem will depend on how many other Channel 3 signals th...

Re: WCCW AM tower site for sale

WCCW 1310 had a CP for 50000 watts Daytime a few years ago. They also had applied for a CP for 15000 watts Daytime with a low PSSA power from the WTCM 580 site. That may have been modified for the new site. Under newer rules, they may be able to consolidate and diplex at the WTCM 580 site. They als...

Re: RePack Phase 8 started

It’s not multi path, but actually the top of the tower swaying in the wind. It’s the same as if you were moving you receiving antenna around by several feet. When WKBD was on 14 they were on the lowest UHF channel (longest wavelength) so the effect would be noticed the least. I also always assumed ...

Re: RePack Phase 8 started

WInds are picking up and I am starting to get Multi-Channel interference Heavy on CW50 (RF34), WABL 28 (RF27) Pretty much unwatchable A little on WYXZ 7 (RF 25) WDIV 4 (RF32) Watchable with a few skips No issues with Fox 2 (RF7), WWJ 62 (RF21), PBS 56 (RF20), My20 (RF31) Back when CW50 was on RF14 ...

Re: WLEC 1450 Sandusky signal weak?

WLEC now has a translator on 93.5.

It's of no use to me, as co-channel WRQN obliterates it.

They've been promoting the translator frequently, no only the fact it's FM stereo, but that its night coverage is better than the AM.

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-LD ...

Re: RePack Phase 8 started

I put a set of 'rabbit ears' up in my attic with RG6 to the 2nd floor TV set and pulled the VHF leads 3/4 of the way out and I still had to spend 45 minutes to get both VHF 11 and VHF13 to come-in at 75% regularly in T-town. Or, is part of the problem the Best Buy and Sony TV's have sh*t for tuners...

Re: KROQ cans entire morning team

This brings me to the question of providing coverage to all Hispanic listeners in the second market. Can an smaller FM station cover the whole Spanish-Speaking community of L.A. with a Class A east of Downtown, or is it spread out, making a grandfathered superpower Class B the only way to reach the ...

Re: Antenna TV gone?

WMYD-TV 20 Detroit and it's subchannels are only available on Buckeye Broadband on the Michigan side of the border, namely Bedford township. When I do a zip code search on AntennaTV's website, it says I should be able to get it on 20.2 with an antenna. Will have to try that, as I don't think it'll ...

Re: WPON WCXI Updates - 2020

I've heard WPON announcers saying they have air time slots available.

Sadly, I take this to mean that they won't be doing a full-time oldies format as I had hoped.

Not that I would have been able to enjoy it at home. Where I live, WLEC will blow it out of the water.

Re: Art Van is out of money and is liquidating and closing all stores

A lot of the furniture in my house came from Art Van. They are the middle-of-the road furniture store in terms of price point. Better quality merchandise than Gardner-White. Much more affordable than Gorman's. Not ghetto like La-Z-Boy. I am unfamiliar with Bob's Discount Furniture, other than their...

Re: No love for the FCC?

Not happy that Uncle Charlie allowed the TV band to be decimated by the cellphone companies. If they were to give us all nice Channel Master 110" long log periodics and a 40' tower as a part of the deal, then I would have been okay with it, but not happy the TV band is forced to go low band VHF and...
