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.

I desperately need prayer to remove the depression that has settled on me. I feel hollow all the time. I go to church and think only negative thoughts. I pray, but the words seem dull and lifeless. I don't feel the connection with God that I used too. I am doing things I know I shouldn't but I don't stop.

I want this depression gone from my life! I want to be on fire for the Lord again! Please join me in praying that this depression and negativity is removed from my life and replaced with faith and love.

Thank you!

It's been 2 weeks thank you, Lord, for giving me this job I do love it and learning retail again. Secure and seal this job with this dept store and keep the peace with jealous coworkers. I am a mature female that works and goes home, do not do anything to aggravate anyone but sometimes that is looked down upon too - the good worker ppl don't seem to like that nowadays. A lot of prayer coverage go back tomorrow, surround me with the Holy Spirit and unction of God. I am also looking for the second job to supplement more hours to make it a 40 hour week. TY for praying for me and keep me in your prayers, I am homeless and sleeping on someone's couch lol and really need this employment and others to come. Lord give me a home or place to live where it's peaceful and from you.

Hi Everyone. I really really need as many people as possible to Pray for Me. My Brother and sometimes My whole Family just continues to Threaten me by making up some dumb stuff saying that they're going to kick me out on the street. Please Pray for My Family that they will change their mentality and Stop threatening me. THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR OVER 3 Years now...!! Please Pray.... because I'm sick of them continuing to threaten me that never worked and never ever will...!! Please BUILD A PRAYER ARMY and Help My Family to start acting Nicer and start doing more Fun stuff...!! Thank You....

In the Bible, God says that "He Will Free his People from Bondage, and Guide them towards a Better Future with many miracles and do Wonders in their Life bigger than they can imagine..."

Almost Everyone's Famous Words for Hundreds of Years now have always been "If You Don't have Anything Nice to Say..., Don't say Anything at All...!"

Please Pray.

In Jesus Name, Amen.

My job situation is going to change. I am hoping for the better. I am hoping for a smooth transition. My disease is still in remission. I am hoping that it stays that way during the transition. I need more time for exercise and maintain health. The hours I have been working have been crazy. I do not want to have to go on disability. I want to continue to work.

[We read] In the King James Bible, Ezekiel 22:30: "And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none." O God, please help us and teach us to build a wall [of prayer] around the USA, Canada and Poland. Are you ready to stand in the gap, where God is the Helper and Teacher?

Please pray that Poland, the USA/Canada would overcome for: (The Acts 26.18).
* Poland, pray for freedom from dead religion to saving faith in God through Jesus Christ as the Saviour and the Lord by grace only, * the Church in the USA, Canada – Pray for repentance and cleansing of the church--Matt. 3.12 "Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire." * my family: 1. Stir up the hearts of my family for ministry—for me, my wife Dorothy, our daughter Ann, and our sons Peter and Daniel - "..but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord" Joshua 24.15 2. Pray God's will and wisdom for me and my family; I ask God for great wisdom in school for Daniel, and for Edmund’s work situation, for Dorothy and Peter (also God's direction for his life) and Ann (Ann needs a husband), 3. God's order in my work. I ask God for great wisdom at my work. Blessings and the knowledge of Jesus Christ for my bosses. Thank God for the continuation of my work. Edmund Krzeminski

Please pray for God to save my husband's heart and for him to stop the affair I believe is happening again with a woman that he just recently cut ties with. Lord please severe these ties for eternity. Restore our marriage and our love for each other. What God has joined together let no man separate. Please pray that this affair will end just as quickly as it began. Lord let our garden hearts be made soft again and our love as strong as it was when we got married. Lord I love him with all my heart and soul. I will continue to stand Lord with your strength. Thank you Lord for all of you blessings. In your name I pray
