BTW, comments and letters are still coming to the FCC under proceeding 87-268, some of them are interesting.
Alamo Public Telecommunications Council, licensee of KLRN of San Antonio, TX, objects to Corridor's, owner of KCWX, request to switch it's final digital channel from VHF 5 to 8 with comments on who says low VHF is bad for digital broadcasting? See http://gullfoss2.fcc.gov/prod/ecfs/r...ent=6519538075
KTBC 7 in Austin, TX, also objects to Corridor KCWX's request to move to VHF 8 writing hey we spent a lot of money on going digital and will be switching to VHF 7; Corridor has been avoiding building a digital facility for nearly a decade so why should be allowed to interfere with KTBC-DT? See http://gullfoss2.fcc.gov/prod/ecfs/r...ent=6519560128
. So where will KCWX-DT end up? Stay tuned...
If anyone wants to try to figure out the channel swapping here, KALO of Honolulu wants to swap with another station: http://gullfoss2.fcc.gov/prod/ecfs/r...ent=6519559325
. What I don't get is why there would be so much trouble getting digital channel assignments in Hawaii.
Also, the FCC has started to take comments on the third DTV periodic review under proceeding 07-91. Only a few documents show up so far at the FCC site under 07-91. At this rate, the final digital channel assignments for full power stations are not going to come out until 2008.
