I heard what sounds to me like a beacon of some kind the other day. It was strongest near Lone Pine and Middlebelt, and was only on for the day (but on all day long)

Any ideas what this could be?

Re: Metro Detroit CB

Have been hearing various E-skip (or perhaps F2?) just about every morning for the last week now. Texas and Oklahoma seem most common, but have heard TN and FL as well. These guys don't really uh.....formally identify or locate. I've keyed in a few times but don't think anyone has heard me (or is si...

Re: "Detroit's Wheels" on WDTW-HD3

It just seems odd to me that this station can't lock in my radio, because my car typically has excellent reception and HD locking ability. I'd like to listen to it more. Streaming the iHeart app isn't a great option for me since I don't have a high data plan to accommodate LTE streaming every day. ...

Re: Part 15 radio

The thought of implementing a part 15 'network' has always been a neat idea to me. Single Frequency, even cooler.

Re: Metro Detroit CB

The last time I tried, I only heard skip from stations using linears and reverb. If the propagation was line of sight, I heard very little. Between cell phones and internet becoming universal, the reasons for widespread use have disappeared. I wonder how much time and money the FCC spends on CB enf...

Re: Metro Detroit CB

I've found a few regular knuckleheads on throughout oakland county, and always truck traffic along the interstates. I'm usually on in the mornings and afternoons during my commute between pontiac and farmington hills. There's some guy up near 17 and John R - I hear him almost every morning. Not sure...

Re: Rimshots

I am able to get WKQZ and WCEN here in Grayling. I have actually got WKQZ as far as Cadillac! That is in-part due to WKQZ's luxury of being the only station in the entire state, both Upper and Lower Peninsula, broadcasting on the 93.3 frequency. Speaking of which, how did they get so lucky? That's ...

Re: WHNE adding more channels

They could very well be adding radio stations as audio streams also, just not sure who they'd add.

Metro Detroit CB

Feel free to remove if discussing in the wrong forum...

I recently dusted off my old CB and antenna and have been listening a lot, talking a bit.

Who else around here 'has their ears on'?
