Well, that worked pretty well. WOMC's HD holds a solid lock half way to Flint from here (Highland, MI). Should fill the holes pretty well. Injecting 3.9KW with 11KW erp. Kinda funny, the BA Receptor in my office now locks on WOMC-HD, no matter where I tune it.

Also Artist Experience is now up on WOMC and WYCD.

Dr. Don , do you know if any of the Boston CBS FM stations are going to increase digital power?

I'll ask. Not in their loop, but if we got a green light, I assume they do, too. The plus for us is that the old gear for one station becomes new gear for another. We can upgrade the market with only one outlay.

WYCD power increase now in effect. Would appreciate reception reports. Artist Experience up and running, too.

I am happy to hear that stations in your area are improving their HD signals. Here in the San Francisco area, I have not noticed any improvements since the HD power boost was approved, and I do not know how to find out if any did happen here or are planned.

You'll probably just have to get the chief engineers' addresses and write them. Most seem to be more than happy to respond. A few are grouches, though. Our guys are obsessed with this stuff. To the point of having radios with artist experience IN their vehicles. And more than a few are hams. Makes it even easier.
