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.

please be in prayer for my daughter as she is having a difficult time with her in laws that keep my grandson right now and she is also pregnant with her second child and they are causing her a lot of anxiety and stress , they are trying to find things wrong with my grandson and then get angry with her because she does not do what they say and then my son in law is put in the middle because they talk bad about my daughter to him. my prayer would be for them to find other means of day care with some trust worthy and loving to get them away from the negativity. I wish it could be me and pray one day it will be but as now I have to work. pray also for her in laws to find the LORD!!

thank you for your prayers!!

Please pray for my marriage. It's been a rough few years as we struggle to find a new normal after an affair. We are still trying to find our way and having a really hard time finding a supportive church family to walk with us through it. Please pray as we try another new church and continue to try to heal from years of hurts. Pray that my husband would stop trying to live out his faith alone and find some godly men to edify him. Also, for me to find women who can encourage and walk with me through this valley. I am struggling with depression. We have 2 beautiful boys and another one on the way.

Please Pray that God continues to protect my grandson and that the courts realize that the best thing for him is to remain in our home; the only home he has ever know. My husband and I have had custody of our Grandson since he was 4 weeks old he will be 3 in May. We are currently in an ugly custody battle with his mother who suffers from mental illness. His father (our son) lives at home with us and his son. I am asking for prayers for my grandson and that the Lord continues to protect him and keep him safe and that he is allowed to remain with us. He is the world to us we know the Lord has put us on this path and we are praying that we are able to continue on this path. Thank you so much for your prayers for him.

Praying that Leland can remain of strong mind of Christ, and be mentally, physical, spiritually and emotionally strong during this difficult time and for Gods forgiveness, grace and mercy to be upon Leland. Claiming Victory in Jesus today, Amen! Thank you ALL for keeping Leland uplifted and encouraged in prayer. God Bless You All. "God is Able!

Please pray for my son, Adam Briggs, who is very shy and has a hard time finding good friends. He is 15 years old and in 10th grade. He has been attending Mt. Ararat Sunday School called the Summit Home Group from 5:30 to 7:00pm.

But now, he is making excuses not to come to the group because he doesn\'t have friends. Nobody takes time to talk to him. Please pray that God will have divine intervention in Adam\'s life and send someone warm, kind, loving and friendly to become friends with Adam.

Also, this group is currently not structured so that every kid feels accepted and belong. What if the guest kid is not a Christian yet? Thankfully, Adam is a believer but he is not courageous enough to make new friends.
Please pray for my son, Adam to have faith and courage to be friendly and to find many godly friends either at Mount Ararat, at Colonial Forge High School or wherever he goes. Thank you so much for your help. May God continue to bless you as you continue to be a blessing.

Respectfully, Marichel Briggs ms_marichel@yahoo.com

I need prayers for healing, renewed strength and a release from what is holding me down - I have several significant health issues. Please pray for one sister who has a chronic disabling condition that has gone on for years, and with my health getting worse, I am less and less able to help her. Father, Thy will be done, and if it is Your will, please give me and my sister renewed strength, better health and keep us close in Your loving care and protection. Amen.

I am in need of prayer for the right direction for my life. I am at a cross roads in my life and I am praying for my relationship. I recently broke up with my boyfriend and although we still communicate with each other everyday, I feel as though he is a different person filled with anger and bitterness. I ask that you lift us up in prayer for a reconciliation and that God would allow our relationship to evolve to being a delight in His eyes. I ask for direction and God's will to be done in my life and that I would start on the path to fulfill His purpose for my life.

Thank you
