Is it passe to show the day's high temperature, the low temperature, the record high and low for the date, the humidity? Is there no need to show a graphic detailing sunrise and sunset, wind speed and direction? All of the above valuable information has been sorely missing from Mr. Evans' weather reports. Instead, there seems to be a mindless fixation on rain...when there will be more, where it will be heaviest, how long it will last. Sorry, but I do not plan to watch more of these these weather reports especially when I can receive Indianapolis stations that are in HD!

WLFI is lucky to have Chad Evans. He had become my favorite weather man on WTHI. He doesn't just get up there and read the weather, he knows it and is knowledgable. He cares about the viewers and the communities around him. Good luck Chad and congratulations on your new job at WLFI 18.

Welcome Chad to WLFI. I depend on the weather due to summer storms, straight line winds, and tornados. However, I don't like the way you draw on the maps. It is annoying. I find it very childish. It might be fun for my grand sons, but I am older and can understand a map. I know my colors, east from west, and I know north from south. Please try very hard NOT to color on the map!! Sincerely,
Jeannie

This is to the Station Manager. Since you went digital, your broadcast have not always been good. We get streaks thru the picture and often total black for several minutes. This happens on live --- as news, soaps and night time shows also. Of course we can watch a perfect broadcast on Channel 7, but then there is no local news. Are you working on this constant problem?

You'd best try their web site link and jot a note to them. WTHI "washed their hands" of Topix awhile back.

I'm not sure whether she was trying to contact the GM of WTHI or WLFI, but a post on this forum is likely not going to net the results she wants. Direct contact is advised.

For the record, I live probably 45 miles from WTHI's transmitter site and get their digital signal just fine with rabbit ears. I have not experienced anything like the poster mentioned.

I had that same problem with 10's signal. I moved my antenna around until it got good.

Oops, my bad! You're right exnewsie -- claire may have been wanting WLFI GM's attention. I guess TH Forum guided my mindset, even though Chad has gone on.

I'm approximately the same distance from the xmitter towers for the TH stations using either an outside antenna or an amplified indoor one (VHF/UHF modes). I do get an occasional signal drop, freeze, or distorted audio on any of the 3 TH stations. I should 'fine-tune' my outdoor antenna orientation. I will switch to indoor with a problem signal to adjust the orientation of the indoor -- usually helps.

No big loss losing either of you two in
Terre Haute. The chick who replaced Evans is eye candy, and a mannequin could replace Joe Stoll extremely well. All Evans ever did was cater to the 5 residents of Perrysville, and all Stoll ever did was stick a microphone into the face of someone walking to or from the courthouse in an orange jumpsuit and ask, "Did you do it ?" Crackerjack journalism... Good riddens - Try another career path.
