Wasn't watching 10, what were they doing?
Since Steve was nice enough to get an update on WEAR, I email WKRG-CBS Mobile and WTVY-CBS Dothan to get an update of two other low-power stations is see when Ft. Walton may finally get a CBS HDTV signal
The question was "when will your station increase to full power"
from WKRG's Jim Richardson:
We hope it will be mid 2005. Not sure yet. Corporate may go sooner.
from WTVY's Wade Thomastom:
It will be several years before we are full power. There are several
studies being done to see if digital will work on channel 4. If the studies are positive, we will go digital on channel 4 instead of 36. This would save us a lot of money if we could use channel 4. Also, the FCC is considering raising the minimum signal levels for digital and if this happens, we will be forced to increase the signal level. If the set manufacturers would stop selling analog sets, the transition to digital would proceed at a much faster pace.
Wade's comment about FCC setting a minimum level is interesting, I haven't heard that before. And we all know he's right with that manufacturers comment. Anyway, Bob Hunzeker can rub my nose in it again, if you want ABC, CBS in Ft. Walton ....BUD is right ......BUD is right ,,,,,.BUD is right....
