When WTVF gets on 25 they'll be two 25's now they'll be two 27's if this goes through.
Lately it seems the FCC thinks that RF stops at the county line....in Texas we have issues with LDs on channels with a full power or a Class A 90 miles away causing issues....(and with the ducting along the Gulf Coast, we know a little about such things...KBMT in Beaumont, TX is LMAing RF43 and using it as a source for translator RF36 to the east; problem? The path to RF43, a LD, is right in line from RF36 site with a 60KW Class A at 2000ft 90miles away...a little ducting and you get the idea...not the picture
Repacking the band is ludicrous if the FCC moves fwd with this 120MHz retaking...there is no room for all the FS and LD/CDs in there....and then add in the analogs going to digital..I hate to think about San Fran market or similar.....(shudder)
