28-KFTL's new application
- KFTL-CA, the low powered station on channel 28 transmitting from Mt.
San Bruno, applied for a digital station on channel 24 in March,
2007, and received a construction permit from the FCC. Since KGO is
moving from channel 24 to channel 7, that seemed okay, but the power
was only listed as .002 kW ERP. Just 2 watts?!? I thought it was a
No, that was the correct power. Come to find out they did that to
simply hold the channel so they'd have time to work on interference
parameters and possible power levels.
They have now submitted a new application, not for channel 24, but
for channel 28, their analog channel. It's for a Class A low power
digital station, 15 kW ERP, transmitting from Mt. San Bruno. Their
CP for channel 24 is still active as well.
