on TV signals
The Cottonwood Butte TV translator conversion is going through an adjustment
phase where digital signals are sent from TV stations and then converted
to analog and sent to home viewers. Spokane stations channels
2, 4, 6 are sending weak signals. Channel 4 seems to have the strongest
signal at this point. According to a volunteer engineer who is taking
care of the conversion and maintenance, there is a need for a 'greater
gain antenna' and an amplifier. He is waiting for the equipment and
hopefully will be able to correct the viewer concerns the week of Mar 9-13.
According to Bob McCall, chairman of Central Idaho TV Inc., 'This digital
signal is hard to work with'. County Commissioner Jim Rehder commended
Bob McCall and the board for their work and added, 'We are still working
through this issue and hope county residents will be patient'.
