The FCC issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on WCPO-TV's request to move to digital RF 22 from its current RF 10. (WARNING: LARGE PDF ahead!)
The NPRM would grant WCPO a power level of 850 kilowatts, as opposed to the 1000 kW requested. From the sound of it, it would still be on-par with WLWT's current 1,000 kW signal.
Interested parties have 15 days to send comments to the FCC. Even so, the process isn't over yet.
WCPO would still have to file for a construction permit, and then only once that was granted could they abandon RF 10...
