This blows. I can't believe they did this, especially after they told me specifically that they'd be at full power from the outset.
The lady who answered the phone at WPGH told me that it was Sinclair's decision to do the low power transmission. Now there's a big surprise. This is the phone number she gave me to speak to someone about this: (410) 568-1500. I wasn't able to reach a human, but I'll post if I hear anything.
I've got a signal strength of 21 here in Chippewa (Beaver Falls area) with a DST-3000 and and an attic mount Rat Shack VU-190.
So close, yet so far...
