I had to come out of the shadows to rant a little bit. Here goes:
If you want to watch HD Olympics on NBC and can pick up both WISE and WNDU's digital channels, don't watch WISE. I sent an e-mail to WISE engineering a couple of weeks ago asking if they would send the HD feed of the Olympics. No reply to this day. Today I called up 33 and got patched through to engineering. Voice mail. By the time their business hours were up (5:00 PM), my call wasn't returned. Has anybody else tried contacting them on this?
A couple of months ago, I e-mailed WFFT on their flea-power DTV channel. Here was the response:
"...Our digital transmitter is not powerful enough to give you a good signal in Waterloo. We have no immediate plans to upgrade the signal. I'm sure this isn't the response you wanted, but unfortunately that's just the way things are."
No, your digital transmitter isn't powerful enough to give me A
signal at all. This wasn't even engineering that replied to me, it was the guy who runs the countless promotions to try and lure people to the lowest rated commercial station in Fort Wayne. 55, stop giving away trips and Xboxes and use the money saved to upgrade your digital signal!
