WNNW 800 AM shut off the HD......because they said they were "having
trouble keeping the transmitter "stable"".
(Considering that the trasmitter is somewhat new, I am surprised.)
In other words they couldn't figure out how to make it work right.
Given that they play lots of music on that station, I am surprised.
They seem to have so many signals that no one is actually monitoring them.
They once had a corrupted file running as a repeating loop on one of their
HD signals....and it ran like that for weeks.
This whole operation WNNW, WCCM, WCED, 98.9FM, WMXV, 102.9-HD-1 &
HD-2......could use a few professionals in the building.
