About Positive Hits PER

General Information

Where on the dial is my local Positive Hits PER Station?

Northern Virginia – 89.9
Central Virginia – 90.5
Richmond (Downtown) – 102.5
Leesburg – 93.5
Winchester – 106.3
Winchester (Downtown) – 93.3
Flint Hill – 96.5

What does it take to get a station in my area? How much does it cost?

Even though we would love to have a signal in every city in America, several factors determine whether we are able to put a signal in a particular area. The main factor is the availability of frequencies. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulates all broadcast frequencies in the United States. Currently, most markets do not have any frequencies available. One option we have is to buy an existing high-powered station, but most of these stations sell for millions of dollars, a price generally out of Positive Hits PER’s reach.

Building low-powered stations (called translators, because they “translate” from one frequency to another) is also an option. Though translators do not cover as large an area as a full-power station, they still provide usable service. Unfortunately, the FCC has not accepted new translator applications for a number of years.

Because full-power stations take priority over translators, if an existing translator causes interference with another full-power station (even a new station), the translator must be removed.

Even with permission from the FCC, a station or translator can still take years to build. FCC and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations, availability of land and tower space, local zoning laws, EPA restrictions and even weather can affect the timetable of building a signal or make it impossible to build.


 

Signal Questions

My local signal has ongoing reception problems. Why can’t you increase the power or move the antenna closer to my area?

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulates all broadcast signals in the United States, imposing strict regulations on where a station can broadcast from and at how much power. Every signal is limited by these regulations in order to avoid interference with other signals. In most cases, increasing the signal strength of one of our signals would cause interference with other signals.

Many of our signals are low-powered translators, which means they do not cover as large an area as full-power stations. Because of FCC rules, stations take precedence over translators. Therefore, if a translator causes interference with a station, it has to be taken off the air.

My local signal has been off the air for a few hours/days/weeks. What happened and are you aware that it’s off the air?

A signal may be off the air for several reasons. Often a translator must be taken off the air due to interference (see above question), technical issues such as a malfunctioning antenna or defective receiver, or extreme weather conditions such as high winds and heavy snow. We are usually aware of these outages since most of our signals are equipped with remote controls that report when a signal is off the air. However, even with the best technology, those systems occasionally break down. If your local signal has been down for an extended period of time, please contact us.

Kenny has been diagnosed with Lung Cancer and now has tumors on his lymph nodes. He went through 10 days of heavy radiation for the tumors on the lymph node next to his neck. The tumor next to his neck shrunk some while the others increased in size. Chemo didn't do any good at all. He's had his first treatment of Keytruda but its making him very fatigued. He is still going to work but has gone from 5 to 4 days a week. Please keep him in your prayers. God Bless you all for your prayers!

My mother is 83 years old and has big financial problems. She works a part time job as a piano teacher to help with her finances. She spends plenty of time taking care of my 88 year old father who is ill with parkinsons disease and he has big mobility problems. Pray that God would provide financial solutions for my parents and that they would not lose any of their property in the process. Also, pray they would get the lowest rates possible for their credit card debt.

Greetings! I’m a Christian and an ALL TIME listener of your station and I’m in need of prayers. Back in 2014 I auditioned for a national network TV competition. After the audition I started jotting down things that could be changed with the show. A few months later what started out as jotting down notes ended up becoming an entire idea. One night after a week of fasting and praying God gave me a vision and told me to turn that idea into a brand- new TV show which I, then, turned into a proposal. A major reality TV production company in California expressed interest and I found myself in California pitching this proposal to them. They loved it and now, a year later, there are several musical celebrities on board with the show and we’re just waiting for a prime time network to pick it up. God wants to use me through this show to bring people to Him and I need prayers for God to open that door and for a good Network to pick up the show. This is ALL God because even though I am a musician I could never come up with something this incredible on my own. God has really blessed me with the idea for this show and He has given me other ideas, as well. He is my Lord and savior and I am very grateful. God is so good all the time and I know that things all happen according to God’s purpose. Yours In Christ Brett Barnes

Please pray for FG. He has decided that he is going to run from God. He has no desire to followGod or to be like Jesus. He wasn't that way when I made my commitment to him. The change in this area has brought out a mean, hateful and nasty attitude in him. He is now constantly doing things that he knows hurts me. He says that he doesn't care that he is hurting me. I don't know what to do other than to pray for him and to ask others to pray as well. I am asking for prayer for him as well as prayer for God to intervene in this relationship.

I ask for prayer for my sweet husband. He is having some health problems, and has to have surgery on Thursday June 14th to remove his appendix. He is having further testing on Tuesday, June 12th, to find out if his gall bladder is functioning properly. If not, he will likely have to have it removed as well. He is nervous/anxious about it, but isn’t complaining...I just know. We know this is in God’s hands, but we ask for peace through this process, a calm, skilled surgeon, and medical staff. Thank you.
