Re: AM Daytime And CH NW Straits Area Of Michigan

I've been in Traverse City at night and WWJ was strong with no interference. I don't know if it's that way every night but it even locked in the HD up there, no problem.

Re: Dave and Chuck the Freak

Morning radio in general sucks not just in Detroit but everywhere. Not true everywhere, Crash and AJ have a pretty good show on WXTB Tampa Bay's Best Rock. You'll hear great tunes and they don't over due it with talk. A couple of features they have is "The Crash Test" at 9 and "Shove it Friday's" T...

Re: WPON WCXI Updates - 2020

I don't know how anyone can listen to WCXI, the audio on the network programming is substandard.

Re: What's your typical FM Dial?

When I'm not getting a quick NEWS update on WWJ, I listen only to 89X and WRIF 101.1 HD2. Otherwise it's the ipod, Pandora, and Slacker.

The station had terribly distorted audio around lunchtime today
It's not just lunch time, their audio sucks 24/7, not listenable.

Re: WCXI problems

When there isn't dead air, their network programming audio is awful, I don't know how anyone can listen to it, as I mentioned it in the Detroit metro post.

Re: WCXI 1160 Republican Talk Radio

I've tuned in from time to time to see if their audio sounds any better, and it sucks. I don't know how anyone can listen to that distorted crap. I'm done!

Re: Most distant AM/FM/TV signal you ever tuned in?

Once on the west side of Saginaw in the town of Sheilds I picked up what was known then as Y95 FM from Tampa FL. I heard Jimmy Hendrix's All Along the Watchtower, I thought to myself WVIC in Lansing on the same frequency must have changed their format, they don't play Hendrix. Well, when the jock ca...

Re: WCXI 1160 Republican Talk Radio

I tuned in briefly on the 4th, and their network audio was so distorted I tuned out.
