Those contours are for the longtime, former TX site near Fenton. For some reason, FCCdata.org hasn't updated the contour plot to reflect the new TX location.
Here is the update:

Re: WPON WCXI Updates - 2019

I have zero signal from WPON at my house today. Were they off the air the entire weekend? I'm noting just a carrier at this time although they were OK earlier today with programming. I believe they were off during the weekend for whatever reason. WCXI is readable but faint. Noting the link below ar...

If WPON is at their licensed power, their signal is horrible my way. Must be in the null. It was decent in Livonia and Northville, but then again it should be.
I don't know yet whether they are at full power at this time.

Re: WPON WCXI Updates - 2019

Doesn’t WCXI have a CP for 15,000 watts? Why would they need authorization? They can go full power right now, then apply for the actual license. Sima and company are just cheap, that’s all.

It will be 2025 and WPON will still be testing.
Well it must be 2025 right now as WPON is on the air playing music and I heard a disk jockey as well who stated they're back.

Re: WPON WCXI Updates - 2019

I think WCXI is still on low power from the new site. WPON on the other hand... zilch. If you'll recall from a few posts up that WCXI received authorization to operate at reduced power from the new site just to get moved. Remember their transmitter failed sometime back and the station desperate for...

He had to be one of, if not THE, last of the original anchors from when Fox News first went on the air.
Hannity has also been at Fox since its inception.

Re: WJBK signal interference?

I've been noticing lately that we're seeing a lot of periodic tiling on FOX2. Signal seems fine for a while, then there will be a few minutes of intermittent tiling and loss of audio, then it will be OK for a bit. I'm wondering if there could be other things causing interference, that, coupled with...

Both stations are on today although WPON is back to playing Motown and announcing that they are testing. I am expecting another 20 year STA extension from WPON by the end of this week.
