Bad news greeted Ogemaw county commissioners from Sheriff Howie Hanft.  According to the Ogemaw County Herald, jail revenue is running far short of projected numbers and, according to Hanft, they are expected to fall further. As of May 15th, jail revenue was at approximately $314-thousand dollars. The projected jail revenue was approximately $652-thousand dollars leaving a gap of more than $338-thousand dollars. Hanft said the primary reason for the shortfall is that Ogemaw county has not received any inmates from Genesee county since February 27th. Hanft said the decrease is cause for concern as the jail’s budget relies heavily on the outside housing revenue. Adding to the problem, arrests in the county are down as well.

Streaming Technical: The audio stream is broadcast monophonically direct from our AM modulation monitor, you are hearing the same signal that is broadcast over the air (audio processing included). If you have an exceptionally good AM receiver with full 10kHz IF bandwidth, you will experience a hi-fidelity frequency response closely approximating that of the streaming service. WIOS's music is digitally "cleaned" and equalized to provide removal of most analog noise, clicks and pops and is enhanced for crisper highs and deeper lows on older recordings where that range had been previously been restricted.  Our transmitter bandwidth complies with NRSC technical standards and the transmitted audio frequency response is 20Hz-10kHz.  Rolloff occurs at the specified NRSC-G100-A rate with the total bandwidth cutoff ending at 11.5kHz well within the limits of the FCC analog AM mask.  Older receivers without sharp IF cutoff response curves can experience higher fidelity performance.  Look for old receivers with the AMAX logo to assure better performance.
