Re: Re: WOOD Radio, I'd be curious to know...

I will say 1300 has an impressive daytime signal along 131 northbound now. Picked it up decently near Reed City in early October. Signal was even readable in the Midland area. Haven't had a chance to test the nighttime signal yet. WRDZ 1300 LaGrange, IL starts to creep in during CH over the Central...

Re: Re: WOOD Radio, I'd be curious to know...

I've driven up I-75 to the Straits and back several times a year over the whole year and time WOOD has been operated with 20000 watts DA-1. There is considerable variation with Season. Also the 20000 watts plus the large antenna gain make it a frequent strong critical hours signal in the Northern LP...

Re: Re: WOOD Radio, I'd be curious to know...

I don't think moving the transmitter out to the middle of nowhere and going very directional Days did WOOD any good. Especially in Ottawa County. While diplexing WTKG 1230 wouldn't work very well because of the 70 kHz difference bandwidth restrictions, they would have done better repurposing the old...

TERK TUNVR1 HD TUNER DVR

Terk HD Tuner DVR Any reviews? Is the Thumb Drive extra? Otherwise I might rather take a Sunday Drive to the Thumb and buy an M-25 Decal if they have those yet. The reviews online run the gamut from 1 to 5 equally, indicating either bad quality control or a very steep learning curve. The problems de...

Re: WBBL gone

it doesn't really have to be that expensive to make an FM DA.

I really have to get my old hardware and software up and running again...

Hudson Tower (Building Under Construction) & Initial FM Collocation Analysis

The Hudson Tower, by any other name, but not to be confused with the Hudson Lookout Tower, an antenna farm area some 240 miles North, has been proposed to be 912 feet AGL to the roof near the corner of Woodward and Gratiot. No doubt that there will also be a ~100 foot communications tower or two on ...

Re: WBBL gone

To me, "the sticks" apply to Big Rapids and other environs 40-55 miles of GR that were served by 107.3's signal. Like today, when I am on my way to Ravenna and then, on to Big Rapids, I guess 590 is going to have to do as a resource for MSU-OSU listening. 1340 doesn't get me much past Cedar Springs...

Re: WBBL gone

It wont be 4. No one, not even them, would put a 45-dead format on that strong of a signal.

Re: Misheard Song Lyrics

From "El Paso" by Marty Robbins.

"Maybe tomorrow a pullet may find me,
Tonight nothings worse than this pain in my heart."

And hopefully, that chick will be more loyal than Felina. :rollin

Correct lyrics.

Perennial Critical Hours Pre Sunset Post Sunrise Log Changes Formats

WFNR 710, a 10000 Watt DA-D Blacksburg, VA station that blasts a Critical Hours signal into areas that used to be served by WOR before they changed patterns and rebuilt their array, has changed formats. It changed from Talk to 60s 70s Oldies. In addition to the recognizable format, the strong ~50 kW...

It appears that this has been a success, as I just opened up this site and noticed a "Deleted User 14803" that turned out to be RadioKev.
But Why? I found RadioKev's posts quite entertaining. I hope we haven't become a Democracy about who stays and who goes.

Re: Casey Kasem The 80’s

"Alexa, Play Cars 108" works. Pretty much have to, since the translator is suddenly and inexplicably very strong. I need a better antenna, though from my more recent RL.

I think it is odd that there has been no mention of who her ex is in any of this. Not that it's directly relevant. I had not heard about that, even though there was her recent HS reunion described in detail online, as I recall he was there from the account(ex is 1 yr. younger so not in the same clas...
