It appears WSVN is still having problems with their DTV reception. After the transition on June 12th the station had to send the FCC an emergency request for a power increase, which was granted, and went from 31kW to 63kW.
Insider posted a comment in my previous post about WSVN requesting the FCC for power increase saying WSVN’s signal couldn’t reach south of Kendall and north of Lauderhill!
Sunbeam which owns WSVN has petitioned the FCC again, this time to have their transmitter power increased to 158kW and to have a new “elliptically polarized directional antenna”
The request was accepted by the FCC on June 22nd.
At the same time Sunbeam’s other station in Boston, NBC affiliate WHDH is having issues as well since they moved from UHF-42 to VHF-7. There they’ve been forced to broadcast on the two frequencies at the same time until their reception problems have been resolved. There were viewers near WHDH’s tower saying they had no signal.
