W35DZ 35 is Getting a Boost


- Posted August 29th, 2022 at 7:49pm
I just found out that W35DZ-D 35 of Algood (near Cookeville) is getting a big boost. An application was just filed today saying they want to raise the antenna 450ft and increase the power from 3kw up to 15kw. Once a map is available, I will post a link. Until more news breaks, that's all for now.

I know for sure I will get W35DZ once it goes up to 450 feet and 15kw.

Seeing I'm LOS to WCTE. Even their backup I probably am. I should get it when they go on air. I'm 1 Edge to W35DZ as it is. So the power will do alot.

Xmguy I hope you do get channel 35. The power increase will more than likely see you receive it or at least have a high SNR for it. EDIT: I just looked at the application on Rabbitears and it looks like Mcminnville will definately get the channel and I will get it at my location.

Where do you live, City? If you don't mind. I live in one of the yellow/red zones. One hopes.

I live in southern KY and it looks like to me that it is toward my direction for the most power.

W14ee is getting a power increase from 0.2 kilowatts to 15 kilowatts. https://enterpriseefiling.fcc.gov/dataentry/public/tv/publicFacilityTechDetails.html?facilityId=187447&applicationId=25076ff382f0caa60182f4ecbe930747 Happy to see the power increase finally happen so I can get channel 4 reliably.

Thanks for the info. Even though if I didn't see your comment, I would have seen the FCC application. I will post about it shortly.

Alright. That's good you seen my comment though.

Are the two 35's (Algood and Nashville) cancelling each other out? I'm in Lebanon and can't get either one.

W35DZ in Cookeville is 3 kilowatts. More than likely weather events are making it harder to receive WCTZ or the channel is offline.

RFCCLebanon, right now, it doesn't matter because W35DZ Algood is just 3kw like Leatherneck97 said. It's probably just the atmosphere. In the future when they (Algood) power up, you might, at times, have a problem with them and Nashville's 35. With me being a little more East than you, I will have definitely have a problem with 35.

Leatherneck97, WCTZ is not off the air. They may not be at the power level they should be though.

I understand you NashDigie. Good that you told me it wasn't offline but probably at reduced power.
