Not happy with 300 ft and 3000 W ? :D
Was that on 100.9 ? I see 3000 W and 328 ft HAAT listed !!
Was the station licensed to Allegan or just located there ?
I think that was what is now WZUU before it moved into Kalamazoo proper

Now we know where WQAN was broadcasting from!

Saw this on another board: https://docs.fcc.gov/public/attachments ... 8715A1.pdf

99.3 WQAN was broadcasting 1.45kW from the WLDR tower in June 2019 without an STA.

Kind of odd that WSRW and WBFX subscribe to Muskegon Nielsens while WOOD and WSNX (both of which are licensed to Muskegon) don't subscribe

Re: 2019 Detroit Tigers

They're only three losses in front of the Orioles for the worst record in baseball!

With the way the Tigers are playing, 110-115 losses are very possible

Re: 99.3 WQAN Signal Strength

Heard 100.1 on the air yesterday weaker than 92.3 and 99.3 with a simulcast of Q100 (at one point yesterday, I was able to get Q100 on 99.3, 100.1, and 100.3). Neither of the three appear to be full strength, but their terrain advantage (the Forrester Road site is about 300 feet above Crystal Lake) ...

Fun fact: WVAZ is one of very few full power Chicago's I've never heard here (I've even gotten WKSC over WTCM a couple of times!)

Clare is part of Flint/Saginaw/Bay City DMA as far as I know. I always thought the technical boundary was M-55.
Clare has gone back and forth, but has settled in the Traverse City/Cadillac DMA in recent years (in no small part due to 9&10's stick being in neighboring Osceola County)

Re: Old county weather maps

I wonder if the Green Bay stations ever included Manistee and Mason counties on their weather maps. Outside of its DMA, it appears WJRT still includes Clare, Roscommon, Alcona, Sanilac, Livingston, and Oakland counties. I would also imagine Clinton, Ingham, Eaton, St. Clair, Oscoda, and Alpena count...

Re: WLAV Tower Relocation

Well, just to go off on another tangent, I was not surprised when I researched the Fountain Street Church and found it had similar origins to Woodside Church in Flint. Both had been Baptist Churches, and are now socially active Nondenominational churches. Woodside had a lot of recitals and concerts...

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...
