Re: Holy Winter Tropo Blasters!

I'm not getting anything special where I live, just the usual common tropo from the Tri-Cities, GR and Lansing, plus a couple of Detroiters (including the new Breeze)

Re: Blarney Stone Broadcasting and Roy Henderson

Where is 99.3 broadcasting from (I'm guessing somewhere in/near Traverse City)? I got a 99.3 playing Van Hagar's Right Now last night coming home from a basketball game. That song is not something WOWN in Shawano would play. How much are 99.3 and 100.3 delayed? I tried checking 100.3, but it was al...

Blarney Stone Broadcasting and Roy Henderson

This could be a recreation of a lost thread, but call it what you will. Let's talk about the latest news about Blarney Stone and their new stations. As of right now: - 99.3 (finally with better sound quality) and 100.3 (with a weaker signal) are simulcasting (with a h*** delay, though). - 92.3 brief...

Re: WXYZ EBS Test On youtube

Cool find indeed. I myself have yet to find any EBS/EAS tests from my local stations, but I have a severe storm warning bug on a tape from 2005, if that matters much.

Re: 98.7 Song Requests

For some unknown reason, AC and 1970's formats have totally ignored Olivia Newton-John. She had thirteen top five songs in the US, and was heard on the radio almost daily for years, but today she has no airplay. Well, I do hear "Have You Never Been Mellow" and "You're The One That I Want" up north ...

Re: 99.3 WQAN Signal Strength

Not to mention that 92.3, after a little bit of time broadcasting sports, has gone silent once again.

Re: Old School 7&4, 29&8, WFRV/WJMN, WLUK

I've also got the 7&4 50th Anniversary special. Stay tuned... First of all, thank you for the shoutout! I greatly appreciate it, and I'm looking forward to what the future may bring for my channel. It's been a very interesting journey through time with each tape. As for the 7&4 50th, it's already b...

NMI Tropo Tonight

While the winter is mainly a dead zone for DX, right now I'm getting some decent tropo. It's the usual stuff, but with local WWMN off-air, M106.3 out of GR is coming in like a semi-local, as well as B103.9 Big Rapids overtaking WCMW, and 102.3 Big Rapids as well. Again, it's nothing special, but sti...

Re: Free Beer and Hot Wings off WMBN/WKAD

Speaking of MacGarb, 1240 WATT is now repeated on 106.1 FM. Just thought I'd point that out.
