It REALLY is
And the thing is, they don't even realize that over half the area CAN'T get them. At all. I'm very very surprised WPVN actually went through with launching RTV here with the station in that condition. You know, this is reminding me a lot of WJYS during the period they tried to be a General Market Independent in '95 and '96. At that time, only the Southern half of the area could get them. If you were North of the city you were completely out of luck. I know now the reason for that, as explained to me here, had to do with how WJYS's physical antenna placement in relation to now WXFT and WGBO needing to be a certain number of miles away from each other but even still they could have planned much much better. Had they planned better they'd have done a whole lot better than they did I think.
As for WPVN, they really need to get some experienced engineers who can fix the gigantic mess (Going from what I'm reading here from those who CAN get it, it's a colossal mess indeed). Once that's done and they can get it stable they need to work on upping coverage area so most of us can get it. If anyone from that station IS reading this and I highly doubt that I have this much to say and I mean no disrespect...
Look guys, if WDCI, a frickin Daystar affiliate no less, was able to get themselves up and running to where I can at least get it now here in the South Suburbs then you guys can certainly do the same and really need to. There's no excuses for your huge mess I keep reading about
You're now an affiliate of a network a lot of people here wanted. Step up to the plate, bring some experienced people in to fix your issues, and at least make an effort to expand your coverage area. The way it is now just ain't gonna float for very long.
I can't imagine RTV being too very happy with the situation at WPVN but there's not a lot of choice but to hope things improve drastically there since every other channel here passed on it. I still think RTV just needs to go to Jovon and make them an offer for WJYS they can't refuse. WJYS now has the coverage area to reliably cover all of Chicagoland and I just feel that would be a far better situation for RTV at this point. If they're gonna fly in Chicago, they need an affiliate who they can count on. I may be e-mailing the RTV people about this because it's just messed up.
