Re: One person doing news and weather in market 12

I think back to 1976 and Robbie Timmons on CH2 Detroit- CBS had a full-time top notch news operation in a top 10 market, then post-1986 FOX bought all those coveted VHF stations, including Detroit and Cleveland, and then had CBS scrambling for a POS UHF signal and an even crappier news operation. Wh...

Re: Brother Stair still on the radio

Yeah, I thought Family Radio sold all their AM stations to focus on the FM's and the end of time, but Harold Camping's time arrived before (or after) the end-days as he predicted. A co-worked of mine took some heat for using up his vacation time so he wouldn't be raptured at work! I digress.... Ques...

Re: WOOD Radio is new #1 station in just released Nielsens

Was not WOOD the first FM station in the country to beat an AM station into the #1 slot in a book in the early 70's? Do they still retain their grandfathered 'Superpower' status for 100kW+ near the border-limited 50kW ERP?

Anyone having trouble with the online audio from Music Choice? As in it appears to not be there and retry, and nothing?

HD Radio Sync

Drove through Downriver Friday night playing around to see how long, if at all, I could hold HD lock on the FM's (as even WWJ couldn't stay locked, or SuperStation 910 either). Anyhow, Christmas music on WDZH, when it went from analog to HD1 you heard the same last 5 seconds again- real good sync th...

I agree. Better than no voice. Wish they would at least have a co-op at the station at 7pm so you can call someone and let them know when a station has dead air, but that doesn't appear to be the case in radio land anymore.

Re: SiriusXM Censored and Uncensored Channels

When the Heavy Metal channel returned years ago after its cancellation, it was the funniest 10 minutes of OTA radio in my life. Someone kept all the 80 voicemails from pissed-off subscribers, dropping F-bombs, telling them what they can do with their mothers, it was funny as all hell hearing all the...

Re: Realistic DX 160

The radio we all lusted over like a hot 21 year old, and never had enough money to afford either. I have a speaker for one, incase I ever find one for sale at a hamfest below the original retail price.

Re: Amy D fired from K100?

I thought Andy Stuart was able to justify keeping Timmy and Becky by having them VT two other stations while they were on their 93.5 shift? Is that no longer the case? Bill Stewart's voicetracking is so obvious, it's horrible. So what's the deal, BS gets one hour pay to VT 4 hours? Bye Amy- you thou...

Re: Anybody Have Any Experience With Fixing d'Arsonval Signal/Battery Strength Meters/Circuits?

For the heck of it, pull the batteries, connect a clip lead to short the battery power, turn unit on and off, and then remove clip lead, install batteries and give it a go. Ed Joseph is correct about trying to ground some genuine metallic/tin foil behind the movement; I'm not sure about the saliva p...

Re: HD 2 and 3 stations

I think the reason there isn't more HD2 and HD3 activity is because I believe that iBiquity, or whatever they changed their name to now, charges a fee for HD, which is stupid. They nail receiver manufacturers, so they have no incentive to add it for their fees as well. It's too bad, as Windsor menti...

Re: Another horrendous book for Q105

There in '79, Buddy Carr was in the big studio for WOHO, between big studio and front window was a large makeshift studio for Z105 reel to reel and cart automation, West of that was a nice production studio, 2 open reel decks, 2 turntables, full mixer, cart recorder and players. NW of that was dinky...

Re: WBCQ - Toledo?

I watched too much WKRP, I thought someone wrote WPIG, not WTPG. Thanks MW, so it's a satellite feed, and on the same tower (4 miles NE of BG airport) as WPFX and WNOC, so 3 FM's now on that Wood County tower. I wonder if WRQN has an aux setup on their same main tower in Haskins or have thought of h...

Re: SXM CH 69 Escape

If your SXM radio can receive Channel 301, then it's new enough for the 'Xtra channels' and the new codec. GM should be the XM network so if you can get the Xtra channels it's as good as it gets, while Chrysler as recent as 2013 still had the crappy Sirius audio- which is stereo, but horrible bitrat...
