Also, with Gray buying an LD in Sioux Falls, do you think they'll go after KTTW's non-license assets and put them on the LD with a simulcast on KSFY/KABY/KPRY-DT2 in HD? Where would The CW go? Would it stay on KSFY with "3" HD subchannels? Or will KELO pick it up?[/QUOTE]

I assume Gray owns KSFY, what what is a LD? It'd be good if The CW exits 13.2 as they continually broadcast an incorrect EPG.

LD stands for Low-Power Digital.

Thank you. I first thought it meant "low definition" but that made no sense without a noun. I thought all digital stations were of the same ilk, allowing one high definition channel. But does a low power license not provide for a high definition channel? Is a low power channel required to broadcast an EPG?

the only difference between a low powered station and a regular station is how much output power they can use. a low powered station can only broadcast up to 15000 watts.

you can broadcast a high definition channel standard definition channel or a combination of both. As example in Minneapolis we have a lp station. Has telemundo HD and drtv in SD.

MeTV on KSFY 13.3 beginning 09/01/15

The Argus reported this morning KSFY will begin broadcasting MeTV 09/01/15 on 13.3.

The article implies KCPO is broadcasting a digital signal and tower improvements are coming "so pretty soon we'll be able to broadcast it within a 20-mile radius of Sioux Falls."

That would be an improvement as in my experience they're currently broadcasting within a 0-mile radius of Sioux Falls. I receive all Sioux Falls and most Sioux City stations and received KCPO's analog signal. But I've not scanned in KCPO since they converted to digital.
