Construction Permits and STA Requests Requested

  • K42IQ-D Flagstaff (Edge Spectrum Inc.) has requested an extension of its Silence STA, first filed in July 2020.

KMCC-34 Vegas is now airing a simulcast of KTNV 13.1 as a stream on their 34.4. KMCC is not currently airing Mysteries. Maybe this is an intended lighthouse for KTNV, and will leave the current host of KVCW-33. If not, then what is the reasoning for KTNV on KMCC?

2. On Sunday, July 4 2021, 15:23 by Armando Enriquez

4 days to repack.

3. On Sunday, July 4 2021, 15:51 by dhett

Scripps is doing the same thing in Tucson. Their Big 4 affiliate is on a VHF channel and their secondary affiliate is on a UHF channel. Because of issues some people are having receiving VHF broadcasts, they put their primary Big 4 stream on the UHF station also. Fox also does that in Phoenix.

4. On Monday, July 5 2021, 15:43 by Armando Enriquez

Three days to go. KASW will be granted as an ATSC 3.0 TV station.

5. On Monday, July 5 2021, 15:44 by Armando Enriquez

Independence Day is over.

6. On Tuesday, July 6 2021, 17:38 by Armando Enriquez

Two days to go. These stations will switch from KFPH-CD to KASW-TV.

7. On Tuesday, July 6 2021, 20:28 by ScottM

Does anyone have a simplified explanation of which stations are changing on July 8? Is the KPNX switchover going to result in getTV moving off of 35.3?

8. On Wednesday, July 7 2021, 10:30 by interested observer

ScottM you miss getTV too? Didn't realize KPNX was hosting it until I lost signal when they switched to backup transmitter and dropped power at the beginning of June. Speaking of KPNX they just going to flip the switch off on the backup transmitter and flip the switch on the new transmitter tomorrow?

9. On Wednesday, July 7 2021, 21:46 by Armando Enriquez

Tomorrow, KPNX will switch from channel 12 to channel 18 in Phoenix, Arizona.

10. On Thursday, July 8 2021, 10:18 by SMess

What time is KPNX being switched to 18? I rescanned this morning, but no change. I actually thought they might have done it very early to avoid the more popular programs being interrupted.

11. On Thursday, July 8 2021, 10:36 by interested observer

Same here. Only thing I noticed different is getTV is back at 100% signal strength but showing a black screen

12. On Thursday, July 8 2021, 10:45 by SMess

Some of these stations are not great about reporting when things don’t go according to plan. When 7.1 was out a couple of months ago due to the wildlife inhabiting their antenna, it took them a very long time to acknowledge that anything was wrong. As for KPNX, the rescan article on their website has no updates since July 5th.

13. On Thursday, July 8 2021, 17:13 by Armando Enriquez

Today is rescan day.

@ScottM:

If your questions have already been answered, then please disregard.

I just saw your post tonight, and haven't had access to Phoenix TV since the 5th, but here is my understanding:

KPNX is now on RF18. The datastream consists of the following programming: NBC on 12.1, weather on 12.2, True Crime on 12.3, Quest on 12.4, Twist on 12.5, getTV on 35.3 and Grit on 61.2. All of the subchannels were being broadcast on VHF (Grit on 10, the others on 12) but everything is now on UHF.

15. On Sunday, July 11 2021, 19:37 by Armando Enriquez

Next, KTAZ is Telemundo station.

16. On Monday, July 12 2021, 11:45 by traveling wave

Now that KPNX has completed its move to RF 18, I noticed a confusing change on RF 19. My LG tv channel info shows KPNX 12-12 showing the same programming as 12-1 on RF 19. This also now wipes out Tucson KTTU-18 real channel RF 19 on my tv .

17. On Monday, July 12 2021, 22:06 by Armando Enriquez

Tomorrow, the analog low-powered TV stations will be shut down.

18. On Sunday, July 18 2021, 01:06 by Mike

The KPNX move to 18 made all the difference in the world to me. I used to only be able to pick it up occasionally, and usually at night. Now it's clear and strong all day!

19. On Sunday, July 18 2021, 12:43 by Armando Enriquez

Next, Telemundo KTAZ Arizona.

20. On Thursday, July 22 2021, 21:48 by Smess

Thanks dhett! Now if I could only figure out why we have Grit on three different Phoenix sub channels. (61-2, 51-7 and 33-3). Let’s get some sub channels that we don’t currently have in PHX!

Она путала показания радаров и посылала направленные звуковые волны,
искажавшие любой шум и заставлявшие врага думать, что машина не там, где находится на самом
деле. Впервые с момента своего прибытия сюда, я чувствую себя расслабленной.
Пусть она и выступила инициатором поцелуя, но
я буду тем, кто будет управлять им и не только.
Ее глаза стали стеклянными, и он прошелся рукой по ее длинным волосам.
Она только поняла, что он ставит её в неудобное положение.

Пока он пялит одну восточную
красотку, она старательно полирует пилотку своей напарницы,
орудуя шаловливым языком. Сучка делает потрясный минет, после чего лысый мужик великолепно ебет в
пизду эту белокурую обманщицу.
Но проводя свой выходной на заднем дворе особняка на
лавке с журналом в руках, бабенка в платье понимает, что хочет ебаться.

Когда увлекательная бабенка шикарно отдается в волосатую
вульву, она реально ощущает как головка пениса
прикасается к ее матке, что вызывает у телочки приятные ощущения блаженства.
Затем она усадила на себя разгоряченную брюнетку и принялась вылизывать
ее влажную пилотку, до тех пор, пока она не получила мощный оргазм.

Happy Tokyo Olympics Day.

Telemundo will be the first ATSC 3.0 television station in Phoenix metropolitan area.
