The antenna is already at the position envisioned in the application of last week? If so, why did they have to apply for this? And why does the coverage map on the FCC website for the application look so bad compared to the CP?
Take a look at that second map again, it's the one linked to the application...though as mentioned and shown below, the one actually submitted by WKBN in the application looks much better. The one you get (41dbu) from the FCC link on WKBN's 4/20/06 application looks like your own 200KW STA on WFMJ-DT! Maybe there's a problem with how they generate those maps...such a difference would not make any sense.
Either way, if I can be assured that the current situation is not changing, I'm definitely OK with that. I was just worried that WKBN was about to move the thing down the tower and limit the coverage. It sure appeared that way from the filing, without knowledge of the situation on the tower itself. Can either you or Tom clear that up?
Thanks for the help with this. As I said, I hope it's not as bad as the FCC maps make it look. If it's not changing, it's not bad at all.
