WCWG is the station on analog channel 20 that we have to protect from our channel 20 digital. Now, our antenna will not be installed until late march because of the $%%^ analog extension, and our power levels will be so weak with the new antennas pattern spilling into that market that we will be lucky to pick it up in master control only 30 miles from the transmitter site.
That is going to cost a large chunk of change, as the antenna crew is now de-rigging the tower and packing it all up and moving to another job, and we will now have to pay more mobilization fees to get them back to finish the job, &()^%^^.
FOXENG, It looks like I will be a regular lurker here, for the ones in my area do not like my opinions, so I refuse to post anything else on the Roanoke forum. Some of them are like a group of ostriches that like to bury their head in the sand and ignore the truth. You can either welcome me, or tell me to get lost !!
They seem to think that they know more about the issues than I do, but they most likely do not get updates from the NAB, the VAB, and our legal team of FCC lawyers on a daily basis like I do. I can do without them, and I plan to do so.
What is your opinion on the blue and white dot issue.?
