See here, KOAA-42 and a fill-in translator they have received a permit for on channel 47: http://www.rabbitears.info/contour.p...-104.860833333
Trip, what this seems to indicate is that Fremont County isn't a primary concern for RMPBS.
Looking through the old database shows an RMPBS translator for the folks in western Fremont County at Coaldale, which serves several thousand people. But the main population node in eastern Fremont Co., with about 30,000 people between Canon City, Florence and Penrose remains unserved.
To our west, Chaffee County rates an RMPBS translator at Salida. Smaller towns in southern Colorado such as Aguilar, LaVeta and others also have RMPBS translators planned or operating.
Adding a fill-in KTSC translator for Canon City, etc. shouldn't be that tough as we're well within the theoretical 36 dB contour, even though we suffer extreme shadowing, particularly Canon City.
I'm sorry, after reviewing RMPBS ownership of other translators in southern Colorado, I can only conclude we here in eastern Fremont County don't rate in the eyes of RMPBS.
I have to return to my original premise, RMPBS, NOT ONE DOLLAR FROM ME!!
