Re: Scanners

The PRO-96 used to be able to receive most digital P25 trunking, but when the cell phone companies paid to have the public safety frequencies rebanded, it eliminated the pro 96 being able to receive the new 700 megahertz frequencies

Re: Environment Canada to end weather radio.

How can we convince Environment Canada is pennywise/poundfoolish to decommission the VHF WX radio system? That's like dumping all the VOR for aircraft because "they can use GPS" - yeah, until GPS doesn't work, then WTF do you do? Same for cell systems overloading during a weather emergency- I didn't...

Re: WLDR Renewal Applications

The only way to lose your license is to not fix a transmitting issue, then ask for reduced power STA's for about 6 years; then when you aren't going to fix your ground system and transmit at rated power, the FCC will finally call-in your license, and like right now, too. That's what happened with WT...

Re: Slogans not matching stations

WTOD 1560AM was 5000 Watts daytime when they had a directional signal with two towers and a working ground system. One tower got axed, and they went to 1500W ND days, so before the drop, they were tied as Toledo's strongest AM station depending on where you were in a null or not, ground conductivity...

IF Cumulus traded 96.3 for 97.1 then you could have: K-100, K97...now hear your favorite big hat-singing songs on 99.9 in Toledo and on 97.1 in Detroit

You guys are all too young when WIOT was the top mid-market AOR station in the entire country...one of kind and Frazier Reams (RIP) let them make him the cash and do whatever they pretty much wanted to.

Re: Q105.5 in Toledo is stunting

A real change would be to change it into a "Listen at Work" radio station, if there were more people still working at offices as there were a year ago, but I guess we'll find out Tuesday Morning just how underwhelming it will be?

Re: August Numbers

Tigers playing 500 ball is good for ratings numbers. On another topic, in Milwaukee, #1 is an AM station, as is #5, why isn't AM like that in Detroit (well WWJ is in a 3 way tie, but WJR is nowhere near the double digits that they once had)

Like, put "The Breeze" format on WJR as your "At work radio station" with local TOH newscasts and office music for the weekdays and save the syndicated crap for weekends, overnight at most.

Re: EAS malfunctioning Friday morning or just Verizon?

Better off with the ancient AM radio PEP daisy-chain EAS alerts, at least half of those would alert you that something is up when your phones don't do sh*t with a massive traffic jam over the towers.
