Re: WWJ signal problems? (+ WJR audio distortion)

While they still have the digital noisemaker turned on, I've noticed a significant improvement in WWJ's audio quality (analog). They've backed off quite a bit on the audio compression and the weird distortion I've noticed for years in their audio seems to be mostly, if not completely gone. They're ...

Anyone heard anything about local air-talent (anchors/reporters) being hired for the "CW 50 10pm News?"
At least one locally-based multimedia journalist has been hired so far to create news or feature content. Current local talent will handle weather segments.

...Sound quality is EXCELLENT (far better than an old analog unit I own) and while the sound level is somewhat lower than braodcast FM even when turned to the highest possible level without clipping, it still sounds great. ...
Just curious, in what way is this device not also an analog unit?

I tried rescanning my antenna yesterday and didn't see 50.5, I'm guessing it's not up?
It is listed on the TitanTV grid now, though.

WADL specifically told Comcast not to carry their subs
That might have been so Comcast would at least carry the main channel, which I don' t think they were going to do early on.

Re: WADL is removing Cozi Jan 1

WDIV was actually promoting COZI 4.4 as new addition to their over-the-air lineup during this morning's "Live in the 'D'." WADL's PSIP is still not updated to show as QVC in Cozi's old slot. No telling what the cable services will do. Comcast/Xfinity didn't carry any of WADL's subs, but maybe they'l...

Re: Massive WOMC interference in Brighton

The Saturday tropo maps at Hepburn's Tropospheric Ducting Forecast site showed a "fair" amount of ducting over the Great Lakes area. Warm air, cold ground, interesting signal paths.

Re: WADL is removing Cozi Jan 1

I was watching WADL 38.4, and a locally inserted (emphasis on locally) screen crawl stated the following, or at least something similar "COZI TV WILL NO LONGER BE BROADCAST ON THIS CHANNEL STARTING JAN 1, 2020. FOR MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE CONTACT COZI TV DIRECTLY." Shitty move, WADL. Shitty fuckin...
