And this also explains why I cannot get WMEU, either. Two weak stations (weak out by me), duking it out makes it a no-show in DeKalb.

I have contacted Weigel Broadcasting about this and the reply I received stated that they are aware of the issue and working with the FCC for a resolution. I never had any problem receiving WMEU before this. From what I have been able to find out this station is officially called WSPY-LD licensed to LaSalle. If licensed to LaSalle, why broadcast from Plano right behind my home? And, why is this station mapping to 32.257 with horrid audio? Oh I bet I know, so Mr. Nelson can receive tower rental money.

I didn’t know WMEU was being blocked by that station over there. The FCC should never have allowed that station on 32 IMO. Worse yet, it looks like they are called Youtoo America while blocking the Chicago YouToo. Can you believe that?

Well, it certainly is blocking WMEU here and to the towns west of here. The folks at Weigel Broadcasting also say this station should have never been allowed on this frequency this close to Chicago. According to the folks at Weigel the station was first granted permission to broadcast from a tower further west of here but then they somehow sneaked in permission to broadcast from the current WSPY-FM tower in Plano which the FCC also approved. Supposedly the station (WSPY-LD which IDs itself as WLPD-CD at the top of the hour breaks) maps to 31.1 but it maps to 32.257 on all tvs with horrid audio. Isn't it ironic, TheUTOO being blocked by Youtoo America? I hope to hear more information from the folks at Weigel in the future.
