Report And Order On Translator Interference (A Doozy)

45 dBu complaint contour limit. ... 7089A1.pdf

The WDTW Translator not just interferes, but obliterates WCRZ Cars 108 for a large part of the interference complaint zone. ... 299702&i=2

On a very selective tuner, the interference is worse on 108.0 than on 107.9, showing that there possibly is overmoduation by the translator.

Is THAT where they got the idea for the 486-SX?

Same (x, y, z), different (t)

Your bullet missed my trial balloon.

Interestingly enough, this very translator also interferes with and obliterates Cleveland's WENZ 107.9 south of the city of Detroit.

My furthest DTV tropo: KDKA Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at 202 miles for three days in January 2017 and a night in September 2017 with only an Antennas Direct C2V!

Current setup: Antennas Direct C2Max (2018-present)
