Re: AM band Monday 9/21

A long shot might be 1590 WIKX New Richmond,WI near Minneapolis. Hmong. Sold, and tossed Real Country.

Arthur is probably right though.

Re: Greetings From Corbin KY

Turkey, Did you take the Grundig 750 with you? I was one who suggested having a Terk 1000 antenna on side, and phasing one antenna against the other. I remember you were less than 100% happy. Wondering....now with the beginning of the AM DX season, the outlook/band might be better? Instead of counti...

Re: Question on 1240 WJPD/ 1977/1978

Thank you! AM certainly was dominant back then. The FMs I've heard from the area at the time were slower paced, not as polished as today and certainly few and far between. I just always was of the thought that WJPD was country. With the advent of FM, FM car converters, etc I do remember stations pro...

Question on 1240 WJPD/ 1977/1978

Years ago at work, I'd talked to a guy from the UP. He swore up and down that WJPD was the station "all the kids listened to" back when he was growing up in the 1960's/1970's. Lo & behold, I found a few dx magazines/bulletins from the time and the reports (1977, 1978) say WJPD with "rock & roll" or ...

Re: CANADA: Enhanced check stops

Still going to Canada in September, though dreading coming back to US because of past hassles from US agents at US border. Earlier this year, going through airport in Charlotte,NC, on an int'l flight, really these people look the part. I mean they had a uniform and a TSA agent doesn't make much mone...

Re: Michigan Radio in 1973

I'd noticed the copyright after I posted. OOPS! http://www.las-solanas.com/arsa/surveys.php?vqry=WMPX&srt1=tsc_psv+DESC <--WMPX chart. I logged 1490 WMPX in in 1978. Still Top40 then. Interesting seeing small town AM stations with printed charts to pick up weekly at Woolworths, WT Grants, etc. As a ...

Re: Michigan Radio in 1973

Sure this was from 73? WMQT went on in 71 and it's not shown. I'm looking for other stations, but WMQT 107.1 (then) Ishpeming stood out.

Re: CANADA: Enhanced check stops

If I could, my experience was in the early 1980's. Nice to see that the idiots on the US side are still idiots. Have passport now and going to a different country, to say the least, you have luggage checked, tossed (hair shampoo), and a cake checked for dope, a computer swashed..... I though, if I j...

Re: CANADA: Enhanced check stops

Thanks for the quick reply. Quite familiar with 680, 660, 1310 and 1130 News outlets in Canada. All sound so professional. When dx'ing, often I can hear 1310 News and 660 News. I do miss the old "Oldies 1310" though. Again, thanks. Guess I over reacted! It'll be nice to go to Canada again, but comin...

Oh yes, it was the US that absolutely was like SHXX! When I went into Canada, it was "what is your purpose?" I answered "to spend money!" The reply was "come on in!" Polite, kind! But coming into the US, with US Customs was pure crap. Yours was the Spam and mine was aspirin. And really, made me feel...

CANADA: Enhanced check stops

Going through Canada in a month or so. Worst thing going to Canada years ago, was coming back to US! Sault Ste Marie they tore apart car 'cause I had aspirin by can of soda. Now, I'm listening to 660 News in Calgary and hearing of "enhanced check stops." Do I have to worry about a soda? Do they go i...

Re: ESPN 970

No 93.3 in Marquette. Noticed this after promo on Fox Sports 105 with "why listen to sports on AM?" and went to 93.3.

Nothing on 93.3, which was simulcasting 970 WZAM.

Still says 93.3 on website yet many, many references to ESPN970.

What gives?

Re: Numerous WWJ 950 staffers laid off

" pre-recorded overnight" Unreal! I'm not in radio. Never was. Years ago there used to be messages saying "portions of our broadcast day are pre-recorded" or similar. Is this still the case? My guess is not. Still, the user should know the news is not live. "Later tonight the fireworks" broadcast at...
