Yes, I am very much around. I've been out of town for the past week at the National Association of Broadcasters convention. I have an army of engineers here who have kept me in the loop.
We have had multiple issues, unfortunately all happening simultaneously and all unrelated. The Sunday issues were completely unrelated issues involving our studio to transmitter link transmitters, which are about two years old.
In addition, we may have a microwave interference issue which is showing up very intermittently. The STL problems have been fixed.
None of this has affected any of our fiber feeds, such as Comcast, Wave, ATT, or SureWest, but systems receiving us OTA, such as Dish and DTV, have been affected.
I saw some mention of Comcast issues. Nothing that we're aware of. In our infrastructure, Comcast feeds are totally separated from anything else. I've had no complaints from Comcast customers at all other than those customers on a very small system up north that is not on the fiber backbone.
We have spent some time on our backup facility and this, as most of you know, does not have any RF in the SF market.
