Re: The Ticket West Michigan

I was out of town for 3 months. When did 106.1 go back to sports talk? Today I heard Jim Rome then Simonson talking about his drive time show on 1340 AM and 106.1. Hi OneBigFan, Since GR's 106.1 FM went live in early March 2019, it's been all sports. It's an "FM Translator" from 1340 AM. (So a low ...

Re: Rescan WEYI 25

25 comes in way better. 46 is about the same. 5 is weaker, but it's no big loss. Hi All, I'll plagiarize my own posting on another site as a reply here, as (virtual) channels 5, 49, and perhaps 46 aren't concluded with construction efforts: In watching the recent FCC filings, some of your area's re...

Re: TV RF Channel Changes

You're welcome Nelson, albeit very belatedly! A bit of the above information in the thread has changed, but not much: These three full-power non-repack station ERP increases remain pending FCC approval: WWTV RF 9; WGTU RF 29; and WFQX RF 32. WFQX is still not back broadcasting on RF 32 after the fir...

WGVU site approved: WLAV Tower Relocation

Approved! As of yesterday, the FCC granted both the WLAW and WLAV Construction Permit applications. So WLAW will go to that small tower that MWmetalhead summarized as, "...the 97.5 MHz signal is really going to turn into one big pile...". WLAV Public File, if anyone wishes: https://publicfiles.fcc.g...

Re: WLAV Tower Relocation -- filings today

Well, now we know "the rest of the story". This morning's filings from Cumulus for both WLAW 97.5 FM and WLAV 96.9 FM advise of their game-plan, with notation that both are contingent on the other being approved. My layperson read of the documents seem to indicate: * WLAW's broadcast will move to a ...

106.1 FM on the air right now

I can confirm that 106.1 FM is on the air right now. Jim Rome is talking NHL. I missed the top of the hour ID. Solid reception on my car’s radio at 68th St. & 131. Is it geeky that I was catching up over lunch on mibuzzboard postings, saw this tread being bumped, & could offer real-time status info....

Re: WATT

No, the Watt Motel has been gone for decades. Although, perhaps you're thinking of the resort complex that is across the street (Mackinaw Trail) from the WATT studios. It lives on as Evergreen Resort, as the McGuire family sold it off only a few years ago. Watt Motel was actually east of the towers,...

107.3 = WTNR

I'm noticing per an online site that 107.3 is now going by call letters WTNR, after they freed up from last week's revision of 94.5 to WKLQ. https://fccdata.org/?facid=&call=wtnr&ccode=1&city=&state=&country=US&zip=&arn=&party=&party_type=LICEN&latd=&lond=&lang=en I haven't chosen to tune in either ...

Re: WHNE adding more channels: 14.9 to be NewsNet

I've stumbled across this site, which indicates that the upstart NewsNet will be on 14.9 in Detroit:

Perhaps there will soon be a test pattern or teaser loop running?

Re: Rescan TV Channel Moves in Toledo--Powering up Northern Michigan, hopefully

I think many stations will end up attempting to up power (mainly to improve signal in the outer reaches of their markets) I wish that would happen in the Northern MI market to cover what was lost. But sadly, not exactly going to help certain areas. And the translators are still crap. Hi organman95,...
