Even More Repack Info and WPGD Info

- Posted November 13th, 2017 at 11:30pm
First, in an earlier post, I said that channels that are not being repacked were going to have a period of time to modify their current broadcast specifications. Well, I just recently found out the time frame. They are only going to have 10 actual days, that is including the weekend, to do any modification. It will be from November 28th to December 7th. They(FCC) said it will be a first come first served basis. I will post any applications that are from any Nashville area stations.

Second, I noticed a while back that WPGD shrunk down from five channels to just one channel. I have been meaning to post about it, but never got around to it. CompuPaul had received a reply from WPGD about the situation. I am posting it below. I want to thank CompuPaul for the reply.

"The WPGD transmitter is and has been at 100% and is compliant with all FCC regulations. Including legal Id’s We are currently on the backup dish at the transmitter site. Due to this we are only able to broadcast the main channel. So the sub channels are off air. I just got off the phone with the tower crew from North East Tower. They will be here on Friday to commence work. Hopefully this issue will be resolved in a timely manner and we can again broadcast the sub channels."

That is all for right now.

I saw WPGD was back to transmitting all their subchannels last night. I am thankful to have them back before some Christmas specials hit the air next month.
