Such a shame that the local CBS affiliate of LSU is delivering this garbage to the folks in Baton Rouge. As many of us have complained and complained over and over, yet they don't change it. Shows you they really care eh?
That's the truth. Also part of their reluctance to change is that they put themselves in the position of having to remove something they've promoted and want to have.
If a station could actually broadcast 2 SD channels with no impact on HD, then 4WWL would have a news rebroadcast on one and weather info on the other.
There are ways that 9WAFB could save face: They could say that in the past few years leading up to the DTV transition they've heard their viewers preferences for HD and to provide maximum PQ for CBS HD they will change their SD blah, blah, blah, etc.......
I did talk to some engineers some time back that told me that WAFB is going to wait until on or about 2/17/09 before completing the final work on the tower that would go from side mounted antennas to top mounted. Several stations got FCC approval for that. That should improve coverage areas of signals.
