The official final DTV Table Of Allotments/channel change thread - Page 241

post #7201 of 7384
Greensboro NC has a full power 51 (1000 kw at 2000 ft) that hasn't requested a move yet.
post #7202 of 7384
KDTV in Fremont CA is FP on 51 (476KW at about 3000'). There's no channel they can move to besides low VHF.
post #7203 of 7384
Low power stations, because they're secondary services, can be forced off channel 51, which is why many are leaving now. Full power stations, OTOH, are primary services and cannot be forced to move off channel 51 (for now).

If KDTV were forced to move, it looks like channel 22 is the only channel available outside of low-VHF. Or maybe the FCC needs to come up with a way that TV services can use channels adjacent to land mobile. It's bad enough that channels 16 and 17 are taken out of service, but 15 and 18 too? But then if channels adjacent to land mobile could be made usable, then why not channel 51?

And the FCC doesn't really care to be honest. As long as at&t and Verizon get their spectrum.

Are there any markets that have no remaining analog low power stations? Whick market was or might be the first to be 100% digital?

In Bakersfield we still have 8 low power analog stations. We have 7 low power digital stations.

Is Barstow still "the land time forgot" when it comes to digital tv? Last I heard they still have analog translators of the major Los Angeles stations. Does anyone know if Barstow is still an all analog city? Any other city somewhere in America that is still stuck in the 20th century?

There's quite a few. In my market the last analog LP went digital over 18 months ago.

Congratulations!

Yes, congratulations Trip! Will you be at liberty to keep us up to date on the networks you deal with? I've got two of those TBN analogs locally and I'd like to know what's going to become of them.

The last analog station in San Francisco switched to digital about a month ago. It's a low power station transmitting from Mt. San Bruno. I can no longer receive any analog stations here. I understand that there's one station left down in San Jose, but it's too weak to reach us up here.

I've always been amazed by the number of low power stations there in Bakersfield. I see that just about half have now switched to digital, but you still have lots of them left. I think you'll have analog stations on the air there until all analog has to shut down.

I will do my very best. Which two stations are you referring to?

Hi,

I kept thinking about the analog station in Santa Clara and could not remember the RF channel.

22 kept popping up but only vaguely.

I remembered that I had a printed copy of one of your old lists, last updated October 9,2008.

--------------------

Channel 22 KAXT-CA & Santa Clara - San Jose Low power analog 56 ERP kW no HAAT

& = might remain on the air after Feb. 17, 2009

--------------------

So, with Channel 1 on the air, we can safely conclude that the Santa Clara analog station is off the air.

I hope Luken will buy K21FP, TBN's analog station in Bakersfield. Then promptly switch it to digital and put RTV and the others on it. Too bad that the chance of convincing Bright House to carry it would be slim to none. I have an A/B switch on 2 of my tvs for just such issues.
post #7215 of 7384
Bakersfield has so many low power stations because we have a pathetically low number of full power allotments, just 4! FOX is on a low power station here. So are all the Spanish networks even though we have a high percentage of Spanish speaking households. We don't even have our own PBS station, we get PBS via a translator of Fresno's KVPT. Until 1979 we only had the big 3 networks OTA. In 1979 we got Univision (then known as Spanish International Network) on our first LP (then a translator of KMEX L.A.). Then TBN on an LP in 1980 (a translator of KTBN L.A.). In 1988 we got our fourth full power station. Then in the 90s we had an explosion of LP stations. If it weren't for low power stations, we would still just have 4 stations.

I thought Larry was referring to that channel 6 that is acting as a radio station.

Yes, KAXT channel 22 analog went off the air shortly after they went on the air with their digital signal on channel 42 (virtual 1). The remaining analog station, as Trip mentioned, is KBKF on channel 6 in San Jose, which I've never received up here in San Francisco. I understand that it's being used mainly as an FM station, not really a TV station.

As far as I know, Luken does not own either of those.

Hi,

My main antenna is blocked in that direction by my metal roof so there is no way for me to receive RF 6.

Someone else will have to confirm if it is on the air.

How do you try and get it using a FM radio?

Tune to 87.7 MHz (if you have an FM radio that tunes that low). KBKF is actually on 87.75 MHz, but sounds fine on 87.7 MHz.

Hi,

Got it on my FM radio. "Christian music from the K-LOVE" was heard and I just heard the TV call letters KBKF-LP.

So I can confirm KBKF-LP a low-power analog television station in San Jose, California, IS on the air.

----------------
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

KBKF-LP is a low-power analog television station in San Jose, California, broadcasting to the South Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area on VHF channel 6 from Loma Prieta Peak. The station is owned by Venture Technologies Group, LLC.

Operating as an FM radio station, KBKF-LP utilizes the 87.75 MHz audio carrier to broadcast Contemporary Christian music from the K-LOVE radio network.[1] As a result, the station's audio signal can be received on most FM radio receivers.
----------------

What does an NTSC TV show, just a slide?

EDIT: I was able to tune to Analog RF 6 with one of my tuners.

FM audio was noisy but present and the video was colored snow. 12/02/2011 9:30 AM


SHF

Now if I just could get KDFC I would be so happy. Web used to listen since the station moved to Angwin (94508) which is too far away from me.

Once he gets setlled into Luken, maybe he can persuade the corporate powers down the street to open a few more locations here in Texas!

I didn't even know such a chain existed until I had to find free wifi for the first few days I was living here. I didn't think the food was all that amazing, really, but then, I don't like fast food much at all.

I ate the Krystal in Carrollton a few times before it closed. Never saw why people thought it was so good (and apparently neither did anyone else, which is why it closed). I'll take In-N-Out over that any day .

Congrats on the new position, Trip. Do your best to line up affiliations on stations that aren't broadcasting HD .

In-N-Out is in another league altogether.

I have no idea what any of you are talking about.

And thanks, coyoteaz. I'll do what I can.
