I sent a email to WRJM-67 UPN concerning a sound problem(coming out of 1 channel only) and also when will they go HD. This is the replay.
Thanks for your note. This is something that we have been addressing for quite some time. The basic situation revolves around the output transmission of our analog signal. To answer your question for both the stereo reception and the Digital broadcasting, it is something that our engineering department is working towards. The simple answer to your audio issue is that when we start our digital broadcasting, that will be when our single channel audio will move to digital stereo audio.
There are few standards still being ironed out in the broadcast industry as far as transforming the entire broadcast community from analog to digital, and our engineering team is extremely involved in the adoption of these standards. Our studio has already begun the transformation, and we hope to have our transmitter completely integrated within broadcast standard within the upcoming months.
I apologize for not being able to give you a firm date at this time, but I can assure you that it is not far away, and as soon as we are satisfied with having the highest quality and most widely accepted technology we will deliver it to you and the rest of our viewing audience.
The transformation to digital transmission is on the top of our priority list, but at the same time, we want to make sure that when we do it, we do it in a format that will be of the highest quality and allow the highest percentage of viewers to be able to receive it.
Once again, thank you for your questions, and thank you for your interest in our station.
