Rock 95.5 Chicago

Posted by W2NAP OCT 19, 2020

So I discovered The Rock is back in Chicago. No its not Rock 103.5 but it is Rock 95.5 Yeah it went live back in September but I just noticed it. When I lived by Chicago in the late 90s I listened to Rock 103.5 until they flipped in Fall of 98.
So what is this station? Well its call is WCHI-FM Class B out of Chicago transmitter on the Hancock building with 5.3KW ERP HAAT 425m so it has good coverage from Michigan City Indiana to Kenosha Wisconisn to Plano Illinois
Music? well its a rock station classified Mainstream Rock format. So what do I think of the station? It's... OK. It sort of has the old Rock 103.5 feel but also has a strong feel of corporate radio I mean it is owned by clear channel er I mean iHeart Media (ew) Now if they play some Megadeath, Sevendust, Motorhead I'll be impressed. Anyways Chicago enjoy the new rock station.

Radio Manuals (User and Service) and Schematics are in the Manuals Repo will add more as time goes on, I will eventually also add downloads at some point in the well just when ever I decide to.

New Whatever This Is.

Posted by W2NAP, SEP 2, 2020

So I went back to old school way of doing things, simple HTML nothing fancy. I figure with the little updates I actually do a CMS is a waste of space honestly. I do however have forums set up if you want to join up and chat about whatever. I will slowly add more as time goes on honestly hope to add a ton of manuals and mods in the future. but yeah it is what it is.
