Arizona TV Station Update - June 2020

As always, questions, additions, comments and corrections welcome.

New Licenses

  • K25PA-D 13.x (25) Santa Clara UT (Scripps Broadcasting Holdings LLC) has been granted a license to cover its displacement construction permit to move to an in-core channel. When licensed, its new call sign will be K25PA-D. Technical specifications: Ch 25; TL 37° 9' 19" N, 113° 53' 0" W (West Mountain Peak); ERP 0.3 kW directional; HAAT 1109 m.

Programming Changes

  • KASW 61.x (27) Phoenix (Scripps Broadcasting Holdings) has distributed its ATSC 1.0 signals to KNXV-TV and KSAZ-TV as follows:
    • 61.1 (CW) is being hosted by KNXV-TV.
    • 61.2 (HSN), 61.3 (Grit) and 61.4 (Court TV Mystery) are being hosted by KSAZ-TV, with the Grit and Court TV Mystery subchannels now displaying as channels 61.5 and 61.6, respectively, to avoid confusion with the minor channel numbers for H & I and Light TV already in use on RF channel 10.
  • K35OU-D 21.x Tucson (Ventana Television Inc.) has added QVC3 to its lineup on channel 21.5.
  • KGNG 26.x Las Vegas NV (King Kong Broadcasting Inc.) has dropped QVC2 from channel 26.7, replacing it with Mi Tele.

Call Sign Changes

  • K43CC-D 13.x (25) Santa Clara UT (Scripps Broadcasting Holdings LLC) has changed its call sign to K25PA-D following licensing of its in-core displacement facilities.

Construction Permits and Special Temporary Authorization (STA) Requests Granted

  • KTTU 18.x (19) Tucson (KTTU-TV Inc.) requested and has been granted an STA to operate at reduced power for up to six months following failure of a critical part. Replacement has been delayed due to evacuations caused by the Bighorn fire. Installation is tentatively scheduled for July 6 and should take three to four weeks. Full containment of the fire has not yet been reached, so there is a good chance that the work will be delayed.

Construction Permits and STA Requests Requested

  • KASW 61.x (27) Phoenix (Scripps Broadcasting Holdings LLC) has requested a modification to its Distributed Televison System (DTS) construction permit. The station intends to drop the San Tan Valley and Gila Bend sites and go with a two-site DTS with locations at South Mountain and Shaw Butte.
  • KDPH-LD 48.x (46) Phoenix (Community Television Educators Inc.) has requested an extension of its January 2020 silence STA. The station plans to remain silent until its displacement facilities are built on RF channel 13.

Canceled, Denied, Dismissed, Expired or Expiring

  • The FCC has dismissed a 2012 construction permit modification request for KRPO-LD 21.x Quartzsite (Hispanic Christian Community Network Inc.) to move its transmitter from its licensed location about 8 miles south of Salome to a location near the junction of Interstate 10 and Salome Highway.
  • The FCC has dismissed a 2019 STA extension request from KDOS-LD 29.x Globe. The extension was unnecessary due to KDOS completing its displacement facilities as specified in its construction permit.

Rule Making Requested

  • KPNX 12.x Mesa (Multimedia Holdings Corporation) has filed a Request for Rule Making, petitioning the FCC to change the allocation for Mesa AZ from RF channel 12 to RF channel 18. KPNX cites difficulties that viewers are having receiving a VHF signal and the fact that they are the only big four network to not have a UHF signal, putting their NBC programming at a competitive disadvantage.

NextGen TV

  • KASW 61.x (27) Phoenix (Scripps Broadcasting Holdings LLC) has presumably converted its station to the NextGen (ATSC 3.0) broadcast standard, hosting the signal of KSAZ-TV as well as airing its own programming.
  • KVCW 33.x (29) Las Vegas NV (KUPN Licensee LLC) has filed a Legal STA outlining its NextGen conversion plans. Of note are its plans to not broadcast its secondary subchannels in NextGen format.

KPVM-25 Pahrump/Las Vegas launched Fun Roads on 25.4 today. Nuestra, which had occupied 25.4, is nor airing on newly launched 25.9. Fun Roads has a audio issue. Programming is quite low compared to the commercials. There is also the occasional glitches in the video stream.

KGNG has modified their sub-channel lineup in Las Vegas this evening. QVC2 has been added to 26.10, while an audio only feed of Info Wards now airs on 26.11. A few Arizona viewers may be able to receive these signals...with some luck.

I was made aware of an oversight by Trip: KNXV-TV is no longer hosting KFPH's Court TV Mystery subchannel, 35.4. The subchannel is now being hosted by KPHO-TV.

KPNX 12.x Mesa (Multimedia Holdings Corporation) has filed a Request for Rule Making, petitioning the FCC to change the allocation for Mesa AZ from RF channel 12 to RF channel 18. KPNX cites difficulties that viewers are having receiving a VHF signal and the fact that they are the only big four network to not have a UHF signal, putting their NBC programming at a competitive disadvantage.......Won't this cause a conflict with KFTU-CD 34.x in Tucson that broadcasts on channel 18 if it is full power? What about using this frequency as low power as a repeater station in Phoenix like it is in Tucson? Additionally, Tucson does just fine with KGUN 9.x broadcasting on 9 for ABC and their repeater station on channel 27.

KPNX has to design their signal contour to not interfere with KFTU-CD. Accordingly, their proposed pattern employs a null in the direction of Tucson, sacrificing some Pinal County viewers for Maricopa County viewers who can't receive them now. I'm less than 10 miles from their antenna farm, and sometimes, I cannot receive them.
