NOTE: It has been found that DTV signals are better-received if they're broadcast from the tower-site with some "beam-tilting" built into the transmitting antenna. Therefore, some stations may have up to -1.5° tilt in their signal. This will/should improve house-hold/indoor reception of signals in the immediate vicinity of the transmitting sites. Conversely, if the reception is still marginal, the receiving antenna my need to be pointed upwards
towards the transmitting antenna's location. This small adjusted has been noted to increase the signal strength by 10 dB.! (I've seen this myself, while performing analog signal measurements in the field!)
ALSO, on a slightly less than related matter:
Contrary to what has been noted in earlier posts in this forum, WLAX, WEUX nor GRANT MEDIA LLC HAS EVER BEEN INVOLVED IN, NOR BEEN PART OF ANY LAWSUIT/FILING/PROCEEDING CONCERNING ANY BUSINESS INVOLVING PORNOGRAPHY OR ADULT-ENTERTAINMENT
... It has been noted that there's another company that has the name of: Grant Media, L.L.C. (Note the comma between the word "Media" and the first "L" - in "lawyer-speak" that means a whole different company...). This may be the company that Mr. "sregener" has been referencing in the earlier posts. The "comma" "Grant Media, L.L.C." is not a partner or even a related entity to "Grant Media LLC" - These are two, wholly-separate companies. WLAX/WEUX/GRANT MEDIA LLC is not the pornography company referenced to in these earlier posts.
NOW, in the area (Around Friendship, WI.), there was, at one time, a "subscription-based" OTA-Porno Channel (41)
that went "dark" a few years ago. That LPTV-translator was purchased by the WI. Public TV Network and currently acts as a translator for WHLA-TV, and its programming, out of La Crosse.
Outside of that particular situation, concerning any programming on ABC/CBS/FOX/NBC or even PBS, that's about the closest anyone in this area was/is/or will be involved in the porno-industry. If anyone has any questions concerning a particular stations' programming, feel free to call the stations directly and ask to speak to their respective Program Director. I'm sure they will be more than happy to set the record straight. Below, I've listed the main numbers of the respective stations and would like to see folks call first and get their facts straight from the people themselves before they post what they think are facts. It's never been easy to put the smoke back in the wood once the fire's been started.
Here are the main phone numbers:
ABC - WXOW/La Crosse (507) 895.9969
WQOW/Eau Claire (715) 835.1881
CBS - WKBT/La Crosse (608) 782.4678
