Welcome to the Michigan HOT-List! Information on our HOT Lists is solely based on FCC data, plus your reports to DX-midAMerica.com. When you report, that info filters down to our HOT Lists so it helps others with their rare dx! It's in this smaller type format so you can print off a copy for your next vacation!
Information on the MI Hot-list is divided into two areas: The upper peninsula (AM-FM) and the lower peninsula (AM only).
Road trips from the 1980's are included now. You can look at this page and see actal dates from notes written then and transcribed into DX-midAmerica dx bulletin. I have every bulletin and every logging and these would verify slogans, formats and the like. Your comments and additions/comments are always welcome.
Vacationing+living in the UP is a treat! Nice lakes, plenty of hills and good people. A nice place to visit and live! I've gone up there ever since the mid '70's and still go back every 2-4 weeks year round. I've never gotten tired of this area. Favorite places: L'Anse, Marquette and Houghton-Hancock along with St. Ignace/Mackinac Island/Mackinaw City (in the lower peninsula.)
Also please see the new Upper Michigan:by City portion of this page, a little further down the page.
Slogans are listed along with formats where known. "&" denotes satellite programming.
