BREAKING NEWS: WCPO Petitions to Abandon Channel 10

UPDATE 10 PM 9/20: We were told yesterday of the reason we could not yet find an application in the database.

As it turns out, what WCPO filed was a PRM, or Petition for Rule Making...and as a general rule, you won't find these in the FCC's Station Application Database.

However, Trip did send us the petition (Warning: Fairly Large PDF Ahead!).

And that petition spells out, pretty clearly, why WCPO wants to move to channel 22...

The original item is below...


This came via e-mail to us from Trip of the excellent site,!

Trip tells us today that WCPO has petitioned the FCC to abandon their channel 10 allocation for their digital signal, and make a move to RF 22 at 1000 feet (305 m) with 1000 kW of power.

That would tie them with WLWT-TV 5 (RF 35) for most powerful signal in the area, and definitely eliminate WCPO's ongoing VHF Problem.

More, as we can get it...
