Well the power level of the modulator isn't the huge surprise- most of the PVI ones go up to 35. The surprise to me was that it put out so much power that it could be received through the air without...

Actually I don't think they are over compressing it, I think it is just an equipment issue. The bitrate on WHNS is still very high. I think the problem is for whatever reason the modulators they are...
