FAQ

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.

2 months I was suddenly let go from my company and I still have not found work that will help provide for my family. I know that God will provide but I would love to start working again to have a sense of positive contribution. I have a few prospects and I pray that I get an offer soon. I know that this is not one of those earth shattering situations but I would still like additional prayer in order to get me to where I used to be. "I will praise him in the storm."

Asking all of the Saints of the Lord to pray for multiple families who were affected by a tragic car accident. One of the young men that was killed was the son of a former co-worker of mine. I have attached the link for the story. I believe that God can provide peace to all involved. This is sincerely a tragedy due to 3 young lives being taken unexpectedly. I believe that with our prayers, we can help to carry this entire community through this hardship.

My husband and I have been separated for only three weeks. December would be our 30th anniversary. I truly did not want to leave, however my I knew in my heart I had to. I had been trying for over 10 years and praying for that 10 years for things to change. My husband says he is a Christian but the things he says and does leads me to think otherwise. We don't have a marriage filled with a Christian loving background. Most of the time he refused to go to church with me and our bible study. And 99.9% of the time he refused to sit and read the bible with me. I don't want to get into much more detail of other issues but I do love him. How can I not after being with him for 30 years? Please pray that he sees that what he has with me is a loving wife who needs him to be a Godly man. A wife who needs him to be there for her. I miss him very much but I miss the happy me more.

Please pray for my marriage. we are in crisis. I feel it's a total spiritual attack. He changed so suddenly and seems to have no heart anymore. He is 42 and just seems to be going through a mid life crisis which is tearing us apart! At first he wanted counseling but now I have had to beg him to go. I made the counseling appt in the morning and two hours later we were having this huge fight that left him not wanting to go. I felt like that was Satan trying to keep us from the one thing we need right now. Please pray that we end up going to counseling but most of all that our marriage is healed and restored!

I would like to lift up my 23 year old daughter in prayer, her name is Ashley. She has such bad social anxiety that she has meltdowns where she becomes violent. When she's not in the middle of a meltdown she is a very sweet person who would bend over backwards for anyone. When she has a meltdown her impulse aggressiveness causes her to lack empathy completely. She's been having these since she was 3 years old. She also works graveyard and hardly sleeps and I've been praying for almost a year for her to move to the day shift to no avail. Sometimes she speaks of suicide and I rebuke this in Jesus Name, . She's very lonely and think she will die alone. Please pray in any way the Holy Spirit leads you to pray for my daughter Ashley. I pray for her healing physically, emotionally and spiritually, she is a Believer thank the Lord. And I pray for her protection from the evil one. No weapon formed against Ashley shall prosper, no harm shall befall her, no disaster shall come near her tent, I rebuke the devil away from her, and I ask you Lord to cover your Ashley in you're forgiving,Powerful, Holy and graceful Blood, I stand in the gap for her, and I enlarge her territory, in the Name of Jesus, we pray, Amen and Hallelujah!

I have been in a battle for the safety of my seven-year-old since 2012.

The father has supervised visits and reunification at the moment.

The therapist wants to start introducing the crazy grandmother and the new girlfriend to my son. she wants to start increasing the visitation to 12 hours for the weekend six hours one day six hours the next . And slowly work to in supervise visitation. I am terrified because my son was abused by my ex husband and has disclose some very scary things and I am terrified for his safety and I'm so limited on what to do. I'm trying to keep my strength and prayers to our Lord and not have lack of faith. But as I write this I am so tearful and upset. God has put this child in front of me and I feel I am failing and not being able to protect him. How do I ? I struggle financially I'm struggling with this situation and I fear it's going go back to how it was My ex-husband is a sociopath and with narcissistic tendencies and he's a real good Chamaeleon. He has been very inconsistent with visiting his son With these 4 hour visits to begin with. And now everyone is thinking of moving forward? How and WHY?!?! Please pray for my child to be more vocal of how he feels and stand up for himself during these visits so the experts hear it from him and see it for their own eyes. Rather than just moving through the motions.

Thank you for taking the time to read our prayer request. We have felt your prayers this week.

We are so grateful to have met an expectant mamma who has chosen us for her baby. We are doing a quick puzzle fundraiser as an opportunity for our family, friends, and community to be a part of our adoption journey as well as a part of Baby Budlong #2's story. Everyone who makes a donation will have his/her name placed on a puzzle piece. We will frame the puzzle and have it hanging in our nursery as a visual reminder to our family of everyone who is a part of our baby's story.

Our God is a big God. We are looking forward to seeing how he will work as we take this step of faith and trust in him. Your prayers will be a great blessing to us, as well as the child that God has chosen for us.

I have been without a full-time job for OVER 2 YEARS! I have an interview on Monday for a contract-to-hire job that I think is perfect for me. I also have applied for the Student Pastor position at my church, but I haven't been contacted about that. Please pray for me to have the wisdom that God provides to make Godly choices in my search. I do have a part-time job, but that doesn't pay the mortgage.

Please pray for my boyfriend. He is a follower of Jesus but he has been led away by fleshly desires and addiction. I am praying for his heart to be softened and for me to remember that I cannot rescue him, only Jesus can. Please pray that he would turn his heart back to Christ completely and that our relationship would be restored and we can glorify God together. Please pray that we both have tender hearts for Christ and then for one another. I want him back.

Prayer warriors, I'm calling upon you to please pray for my mom, Mab , again. She's still having lung issues, but what's worse right now is her disheartened feelings. She's so weak, anxious, tired of it all, but still fighting. The Dr's are trying a new medication today to see if it will help. I'm begging the Lord for another miracle. She's fought too hard, too long for her not to make it through this. We need HIM now.
