There's finally a little bit of interesting action in this stale market!

Sure would love to see some productive changes at 101.3.

I've kinda ignored the whole Jethro post here for some time, but checked the radio for the first time in two or so weeks and noticed a new semi-local on 99.5. Jethro comes in loud and clear here in Fremont. No problem at all hearing it; signal level is close to the other GR translators here (104.9, 90.7, 92.3, 93.3, etc.). 5th damn country station on the dial on 99.5 here (eye roll). Makes me wonder when the other translators like 106.1 will sign on -- assuming 99.1 in Muskegon will at the same time too? My middle finger to them if they do for messing with my usual preset station -- and if Smile will ever utilize their few CPs in the area, which it seems they haven't for any of their stations (102.5 obviously still at 250w instead of moving and downgrading to 27w and 99.9 GR still at 10w instead of 250w).

I've noticed the past few weeks, 94.9 Jethro FM has come in almost as clear as Magic 104.9 does here in northeastern Kent county , It would almost always be WMMQ until lately.

As for the translator on 99.1, Mix 99.1 from WI will kill it in the summer.

It's likely coming in better lately because of winter conditions. It enhances local and semi-local translators in the absence of favorable conditions in the troposphere.
