There has also been a whole lot of low power FM translator stations added in recent years which may also elevate the noise levels and cause interference. Although you can add an FM trap, I still...

I remember now you are in Mitchell County, NC. I was thinking more in terms of Upstate SC near my location. So while it may be possible to improve your reception with a preamp, it will be more...

That's what I thought lower channels take less power to reach the same area in theory. Thanks for clarification. It seems currently most 1000kw stations may be somewhere above RF20, but I am not...

I hope they can keep a translator for WSOC/WAXN on Crowders Mountain because 9 and 64 do not reach as far to the west as the Dallas signals, and if WSOC and WAXN main signals are going to be lower...

9 is on 34 and 18 is 27. So they should not have to move unless they need to clear more space for other stations moving. Not sure how all this is negotiated or decided. Apparently FCC will eventually...

16.1 is mainly religious programming and carries the new Jim Bakker program. But not quite the same without Tammy Faye. And 16.3 has Jimmy Swaggart still going strong. Good gospel music.

I don't understand the need for WBGU to move from 27 to 22. I thought most of the stations required to move were above 36, so it seems like WBGU would have remained on 27. Unless some other station...

Is the FCC allowing the stations to announce any changes first? And if any other stations may be moving, will they be announcing soon also, or does this decision vary for each individual station?
