The real waste was moving CBEFT to DT channel 35 (IIRC), only to operate it for less than a year!!!
I think it was analog 35, but it did move from 54 in 2011

Re: WLDR Renewal Applications

Competing broadcasters could give two shits that 101.9 WLDR is off the air; it's less competition for them! WLDR has one of the best signals in TC and certainly competed in the past. It will be interesting to see if the legal battle continues between the LMA company and the current owner. If not fo...

Re: 99.3 wqan and 92.3 wbnz

Both 92.3 WBNZ and 99.3 WQAN are on the air. Both stations appear to have RDS. WBNZ is displaying its call letters and "Chainsaw Rock". Still airing that rock music loop. WQAN is displaying its call letters only. It is airing 60s and early 70s oldies music. WBNZ seems to be running a little more pow...

Re: The Big Opening To The East

In Grand Rapids (visiting my sister), I had a lot of stations in to the north/northeast (most of the big ones in the northern LP, several Detroit stations, four Cleveland stations, CKSY/CHYM). My highlights had to be getting 96.9 WWCM mixing with WLAV and managing to get around several translators ...

Re: 2020 Presidential Polls

Drove through rural parts of SW Michigan last week (Allegan, Van Buren, Cass, St. Joseph, Hillsdale, Calhoun, Jackson, and Barry counties) and saw way more Trump signs than Biden signs. There were also lots of signs for downballot Republicans, such as John James, Fred Upton, Tim Walberg, and state r...

Re: CBC article about stations going off the air

To be honest, this is not a good time for Canadian Broadcasters, as they just got DTV frequencies cut, DTV transitioning and the stations go off the air allot easier. This could be a big learning point for Canada's broadcast companies. But to make any changes, broadcasters must ask to change busine...

Re: Plastic Pelosi gets here hair did

Just another example of "do as I say, not as I do" by Democrats over the last few months. Other examples include: - The mayor of Philadelphia dining indoors at a restaurant in Maryland while indoor dining is still illegal in his own city (this action wasn't illegal as indoor dining is allowed in MD,...

Re: WBMI West Branch Brouhaha

WBMI is one of the few full-power stations in northern Michigan that I have never received (WLJD is another). If they were on, I might have gotten them by now with WSRJ off as well
