Re: Receive antenna height for translator

W263CF 100.5 Meridian, MS picking up WLYB 96.3 Livingston, AL

I hear that translator gets out real well for 10 watts, about as well as a translator running 75 watts on the same tower

Re: Infamous Brian Dodge enters consent degree with FCC

I worked for Brian Dodge at WWNH. Horee sheet, the stories I could tell even after only working there 3 months.

Re: A 50 Year Old AM Tower Comes Crashing Down....

I am told all 300 feet of the ZBVI 780 tower is up. The task at hand is to tune everything up. What that involves, I don't know.. but ZBVI is real close to signing back on with a real tower!
