Re: Wyandotte Cable retires scrolling TV listings

Buckeye, AFAIK, carries a scrolling guide with local ads on the top half (channel 20 in Sandusky, channel 56 in Toledo, channel 70 in Bedford). Pop is carried in full on channel 205

Re: Why is Sanilac part of the Detroit DMA?

Even to this day, I think Genesee and Lenawee counties are included in weather maps for the Detroit stations. The Comcast lineup for Sandusky (which is an utter joke for a community of its size) doesn't carry a PBS member at all according to Zap2it. It also doesn't carry CBS 62 (WNEM is carried, alo...

Interesting conditions last night and this morning

Last night and this morning, I had some strong tropo into central and eastern Wisconsin. The following were heard (besides the typical GB/Appleton/Door County stations): 88.5 WGNV Milladore (100kW) 88.9 WVRN Wittenberg (25kW) 89.5 WCLQ Wausau (90kW, around WPNE IBOC) 90.9 WHRM Wausau (81kW) 92.3 WJM...

Re: 7&4 in 1980

Cheboygan's was B&C way back in the day before Glen's. I went to camp near Cheyboygan almost 40 years ago. I heard that the B & C stood for Beat Em and Cheat EM. I have a feeling that I might not get an answer to this but here goes. Does anyone remember a station in the Cheyboygan area showing Gill...

90.7 – WNMC Traverse City (600W @ 45 mi)
Elevation (WNMC's stick is 538 feet above average terrain) and an empty frequency does wonders.

Also forgot one station:
104.1 - WVGR Grand Rapids (96kW @ 105 mi)

Re: 103.7 WCKY

I really like 105.9 WNKN out of Cincinnati/Dayton. When I was in the Kings Island area last week, I listened to it from Dayton to Kings Island and then to just outside of Columbus.

Re: Worst Tower Sites For Getting Stuck-Water, Mud, Sand, Snow, Ice, Grade, etc.

Looking at Google Earth, the Gaylord Eagle 101.5's site appears to be a tough one to get to as it's a half mile two track off a gravel road. Assuming the WQON/WGRY site hasn't moved since the 1990s, the road going past it is paved and has houses well below the tower site. The WKZC site requires goin...

Re: 101.3 The Brew

101.3 is an abomination of a radio station. An absolute embarrassment and a microcosm of everything that is wrong with mega corporate radio. I do not know if I've ever seen a crappier rock playlist in a top 100 market. The sad thing is - iFart uses the exact same playlist on WHEB in Portsmouth, NH,...

Very well stated.

The Tigers rebuild is progressing very slowly. The front office doesn't have the right talent or intellect to execute a proficient rebuild.

I think the Tigers have a damn good chance of finishing the season with the worst record in the AL.
Even worse than the Orioles?

Re: 7&4 in 1980

Were there any Kroger stores in northern Michigan at that time? I thought it was unusual that 7&4 advertised Kroger. Also that graphics package was superior to 9&10's current graphics!! Kroger had several stores in TC and Cadillac. The Big Lots at Cherryland was originally a Kroger. I think several...

This time Fox will finally get an O&O in Seattle. In Cleveland, it would be going back to FOX (they owned it in the...
