I thought I'd update the KWSD situation. Months ago I filed a complaint with the FCC. My complaint wasn't that I couldn't receive 36.1 or 36.2, but rather that their signal locks my scan.
This popped up in my calendar and the situation hasn't changed so I phoned the FCC to inquire as to the status of my complaint. I was told the complaint had been closed. That surprised me as nothing had been done to my knowledge and my scan still locks on the 36 channels.
Bottom line, after repeatedly trying to explain I get very good digital reception and my complaint isn't that I can't receive 36.1 or 36.2 I was transferred. Again, I was repeatedly told the FCC can't guarantee reception and KWSD may have tweaked their antenna.
After perhaps 15 minutes I think I got through that it's not a situation of not receiving their signal. The problem is their signal locks my scan. In my opinion (I could be wrong), that would indicate their signal isn't up to specs. Bottom line, I was told someone would be sent out to check their status. It was explained that wouldn't be a fast process. I can live with that, it's significantly better than just closing the complaint.
This isn't a big problem as I receive MeTV from Sioux City, but it just seems wrong. It seems a license to broadcast should entail broadcasting a proper signal.
