Yes, congratulations Trip! Will you be at liberty to keep us up to date on the networks you deal with? I've got two of those TBN analogs locally and I'd like to know what's going to become of them.

In Bakersfield we still have 8 low power analog stations. We have 7 low power digital stations.

The last analog station in San Francisco switched to digital about a month ago. It's a low power station transmitting from Mt. San Bruno. I can no longer receive any analog stations here. I understand that there's one station left down in San Jose, but it's too weak to reach us up here.

I've always been amazed by the number of low power stations there in Bakersfield. I see that just about half have now switched to digital, but you still have lots of them left. I think you'll have analog stations on the air there until all analog has to shut down.

Hi,

I kept thinking about the analog station in Santa Clara and could not remember the RF channel.

22 kept popping up but only vaguely.

I remembered that I had a printed copy of one of your old lists, last updated October 9,2008.

--------------------

Channel 22 KAXT-CA & Santa Clara - San Jose Low power analog 56 ERP kW no HAAT

& = might remain on the air after Feb. 17, 2009

--------------------

So, with Channel 1 on the air, we can safely conclude that the Santa Clara analog station is off the air.

I hope Luken will buy K21FP, TBN's analog station in Bakersfield. Then promptly switch it to digital and put RTV and the others on it. Too bad that the chance of convincing Bright House to carry it would be slim to none. I have an A/B switch on 2 of my tvs for just such issues.

How can we say "the digital transition is complete" when thousands of low power stations are still broadcasting in analog?

Bakersfield has so many low power stations because we have a pathetically low number of full power allotments, just 4! FOX is on a low power station here. So are all the Spanish networks even though we have a high percentage of Spanish speaking households. We don't even have our own PBS station, we get PBS via a translator of Fresno's KVPT. Until 1979 we only had the big 3 networks OTA. In 1979 we got Univision (then known as Spanish International Network) on our first LP (then a translator of KMEX L.A.). Then TBN on an LP in 1980 (a translator of KTBN L.A.). In 1988 we got our fourth full power station. Then in the 90s we had an explosion of LP stations. If it weren't for low power stations, we would still just have 4 stations.

How can we say "the digital transition is complete" when thousands of low power stations are still broadcasting in analog?

I thought Larry was referring to that channel 6 that is acting as a radio station.

Yes, KAXT channel 22 analog went off the air shortly after they went on the air with their digital signal on channel 42 (virtual 1). The remaining analog station, as Trip mentioned, is KBKF on channel 6 in San Jose, which I've never received up here in San Francisco. I understand that it's being used mainly as an FM station, not really a TV station.

Hi,

My main antenna is blocked in that direction by my metal roof so there is no way for me to receive RF 6.

Someone else will have to confirm if it is on the air.

How do you try and get it using a FM radio?

Tune to 87.7 MHz (if you have an FM radio that tunes that low). KBKF is actually on 87.75 MHz, but sounds fine on 87.7 MHz.

Hi,

Got it on my FM radio. "Christian music from the K-LOVE" was heard and I just heard the TV call letters KBKF-LP.

So I can confirm KBKF-LP a low-power analog television station in San Jose, California, IS on the air.

----------------
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

KBKF-LP is a low-power analog television station in San Jose, California, broadcasting to the South Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area on VHF channel 6 from Loma Prieta Peak. The station is owned by Venture Technologies Group, LLC.

Operating as an FM radio station, KBKF-LP utilizes the 87.75 MHz audio carrier to broadcast Contemporary Christian music from the K-LOVE radio network.[1] As a result, the station's audio signal can be received on most FM radio receivers.
----------------

What does an NTSC TV show, just a slide?

EDIT: I was able to tune to Analog RF 6 with one of my tuners.

FM audio was noisy but present and the video was colored snow. 12/02/2011 9:30 AM


SHF

Now if I just could get KDFC I would be so happy. Web used to listen since the station moved to Angwin (94508) which is too far away from me.

I didn't even know such a chain existed until I had to find free wifi for the first few days I was living here. I didn't think the food was all that amazing, really, but then, I don't like fast food much at all.

I ate the Krystal in Carrollton a few times before it closed. Never saw why people thought it was so good (and apparently neither did anyone else, which is why it closed). I'll take In-N-Out over that any day .

Congrats on the new position, Trip. Do your best to line up affiliations on stations that aren't broadcasting HD .

For the life of me, I'll never see what it is about In-and-Out that has people so enthralled. The burger patties they use can't be much bigger than what you get at White Castle, then they hide it between two full-size buns and bury it under veggies. Then throw undercooked french fries into the mix... no, thank you.

But, folks from Little California Ahwatukee line up for it.

3 words: fries well done.

When the first Texas locations of In-N-Out opened back in May, there was a 4 hour wait from when you got in line till you got your food. In a thunderstorm. And it was worth the wait.

Sounds like Cookout here on the east coast. When the one in Richmond opened a year ago, the cars lined up closed a fairly major thoroughfare. We have 10 Cookout's in the area and there is always a line to them.

The best burgers come off a charcoal grill. I am not impressed with cook out other than their onion rings... Five Guy just opened up across the street here from cook out, but I have heard both positive and negatives. They really know how to create traffic jams in my city opening these chains on both sides of the street.

There's NO WAY their onion rings beat Sonic's...

IMHO...
Best burger: Whataburger
Best fries: McDonalds
Best onion rings: As stated above, Sonic
Best Dessert: Dairy Queen's Blizzard (with M & Ms )

But I do agree on one thing... The very best homemade burgers do come off of a charcoal (mesquite) grill...
