KCPO back again

KCPO is back on the air for its brief annual appearance. Three channels on RF 26: KCPO, RetroTV, and BizTV.

KCPO must be broadcasting at even lower power than usual as I just scanned and they didn't come in. I receive all Sioux Falls and most Sioux City stations.

On another note ... I was told a Sikorsky Skycrane was working on KDLT's Rowena tower earlier in the week. That would have been something to see.

And, as a tennis fan, I'm always impressed KDLT airs the live east coast feed of the French Open for the Thursday and Friday semi-finals. I was somewhat apprehensive this year as I feared that might change with the Gray acquisition. Perhaps it's not fully gone through or Gray hasn't interfered, but I was pleased to see the live feed. Unfortunately, the schedule was changed due to Wednesday's rain so little live falls in the broadcast window, but that's not NBC's or KDLT's fault.

KDLT reception

Are others having KDLT reception problems. They worked on their tower last week and reception since has been quite poor. I'm tempted to write KDLT but thought I should check with others first.

KCPO still going

KCPO has been on the air for 30 days now. RF 26: KCPO, Youtoo America, and RetroTV. There is no PSIP or EPG, but the signal has been pretty good.

KWSD is again "broadcasting"

I noticed last night KWSD is broadcasting. Why I don't know; I assume it's only to continue their license. They still lack an EPG but don't interfere with my scan.

KWSD has been on the air since July 16. It is Shepherd's Chapel all the time.

KCPO started on June 6 and is still going strong.

In addition to the "Shepherd's Chapel" it carries old nature programming such as "Wild America". Also aired are old celebrity interviews, children's educational and such. Bottom line, nothing new and significant repetition.

Well, The merger of KSFY and KDLT is complete.
They began Dakota News Now broadcasting this morning.
I wonder how long, if ever, it will take to get ABC broadcasting Via OTA in the Aberdeen area again.

Perhaps I misremembered.

Northpine has a great write up about the changes
http://www.northpine.com/blog/2020/0...-falls-merger/

They also mention the availability
Additionally, Gray is adding a state capitol news bureau in Pierre to serve its Sioux Falls and Rapid City stations and making the ABC and NBC channels more widely available in rural areas of the Sioux Falls market through simulcasts on the two stations’ transmitter networks.

If you look on KSFY/Dakota News Now website menu there's a link to Circle TV Network. Wonder if that is the new station that was mentioned in one of the merger article. Also wonder if the resolutions for ABC/CW/MeTV are going to be at 720p and lower when they are added to the existing KDLT translators.

Its possible they may add only ABC to the translators.
