More Beam Width, Please!!!!
I see a 09/05/17 KMAX Construction Permit Modification Application to raise power to full 1000 kW ERP for the Repack move to channel 24. However, the beam width of the listed antenna, Dielectric TFU-28GTH/VP-R O4A, is still overly narrow:
A better choice would be TFU-24GTH or, better yet, TFU-22GTH. I receive KGO, over 120 miles away, NOT because of high power, but because of WIDE beam width!!! I will take wider beam width over higher power ANY DAY!!! The same goes for the wide beam widths of KVIE and KXTV which are the last viewable stations during a bad temperature inversion.
