DTV America claims, as its official address, a suite in Sunrise, Florida; the address is actually a private mailbox at a UPS Store.[6] As of 2015[update], the chief executive officer is John Kyle II.[7] He and fellow DTV America executive Bert Garriga also run DTVCast, a company that provides Internet bandwidth over digital television broadcasting signals.[8][9]

What's the purpose of having a repeater in the downtown Cleveland area when their 15 kW signal covers that area nicely? Just look at how much of that signal is wasted over the lake, no nulls. Right now, I'm guessing that if they have to abandon RF 32, they can sign on a signal to cover the greater Cleveland area to either one of those channels, whichever one gets approved. The other two locations are completely pointless and would not improve viewership unless good programming/networks are being broadcast.

Newer is not always better.

I have an idea… WRAP could add another application to their long list of application/construction permits/licenses, and apply to put it in Bismarck’s backyard. Then they could make it a repeater for WOIO!! Whatever coverage WRAP ends up with, I hope it stays far away from here!! We certainly don’t need another channel clogger in Akron. We already have plenty of channels and even duplicate channels… i.e. Western Reserve PBS on 45 and 50, and WOIO on RF 10 and 24.
