Impedance changed more than 2%, so has to file for direct measurement of power. Not a big deal. And I wonder if there should be different threshold for omni vs. DA. Thoughts?
It's 2% for the tower that is affected by the change.

Re: The Ticket West Michigan

Are these clowns still lying to their audience as to the real reason behind 106.1's sign-on delay? Why do you think they are lying? It comes down to the Big guy not knowing what the hell is really going on and announcing to everyone a target date for 106.1 turning on when he doesn't even know for s...

Re: WLAV Tower Relocation

I think once the re-location to the GVSU happens the Average WLAV will no longer have reception issues. It all comes down to where the Sales people are selling. I highly doubt much is being sold in eastern Kent County. Ionia, Montcalm, Barry and Eaton counties. I'm sure a some though.

Very untrue statement but isn't a surprise you may say that especially when you have ties to WDEE. The station doesn't sound much louder than any other station in the area.

Re: 99.1 Big Rapids

The coverage is not much to the South. I lose it before the Mecosta/Montcalm County line when on my commute. I thought Brian Goodenow had wrapped it up with Mentor Partners, but I heard him doing some hosting on 99.1 one morning late last year. Brian Goodenow took on the role as the "Host" for 99.1...

Re: Patty Kolb Out as General Manager at Fox 17!

This has been confirmed! No word as to why. She was the GM at WXMI for 13 years. Was she fired? Did she choose to leave? None the less, It's gonna be an interesting TV landscape in Grand Rapids now. Nexstar is buying WOOD, and Fox 17 will soon be under new leadership as well. It's my understanding ...

Re: New Class A FM in Big Rapids signs on

I must disagree with you Sybil. I probably have 97.3 on at least once a day and have never noticed the "muffled" sound you mention. On the other hand, 102.3 was awfully bass heavy when I listened the other day. Two different formats...Apples and Oranges... Oldies typically doesn't have as much bass...

Re: New Class A FM in Big Rapids signs on

Sybil, what planet are you listening from? 97.3's audio is equal to most other stations in the area, and a lot better than some that probably don't need mentioning. I've got a pretty decent radio in my car and have checked many of the area stations. My impression is you've got receiver problems. Th...

Re: New Class A FM in Big Rapids signs on

Plus, as a standalone just a few years ago, 97.3 grabbed the rights for Ferris State athletics broadcasts from the far more established group in Big Rapids. I always wondered if those people did or said something to anger the athletic decision-makers at Ferris. Just to set the record straight... WD...

Re: WBRN

WLCS flutters in and out along the 131 corridor, at least for my car radio. I wouldn't expect to get good reception on 131. That's a long way for that signal. 103.9 not being a finished technical product at this point should not be surprising, given their rush to take to the air and meet license de...

What helps WVIB is that it's antenna is 480ft in the air so it helps the 3kW signal. WLCS is on the same tower and has decent
coverage for a 2kW signal.

Re: WBRN

103.9 was heard playing 80s music this weekend. Considering 103.9 is a 6kW signal. I'm not impressed with the coverage. I'll have to give it a listen the next time I'm in the area. Now 99.1 seems to have a pretty decent song list going. I think that will appear to the College kids. Time will only t...
