WSTR-TV 64/Cincinnati, which rebranded last week with the old/new moniker of "Star 64", just upped their power to 60 kW, and installed a new antenna custom built for the terrain of the Tri-State.
John Kiesewetter reported Monday that the new antenna is about 72 feet taller, at 902 feet vs. 830 feet. However, the antenna is still located on what's known in local media geek circles as "STAR Tower", aka WSTR's broadcast tower in College Hill on Winton Road. It was custom built for WSTR, so that it can cover the hilly terrain of the area, says John Lawhead, WSTR General Manager.
A note: We can't find the CP allowing WSTR to increase their power in the FCC database. Whether that's because it's another one of those Petitions for Rulemaking, or it's just not in the database, we don't know. But we can't imagine them doing this, without FCC approval. So we're assuming it's just not in the online database yet.
