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.

Jordan

I\'ve been struggling with sin in my life for a while now. Through my teen years I indulged in pornography, but for the past six months or so I have really been making an effort to repent. I just relapsed (this is not the first time) and I feel like there is no hope. I actually don\'t really feel anything, which scares me. I feel like I\'ve gone too far, and that God will give up on me. If you believe that there is hope or if God has brought you back from terrible things would you please pray for me. Please pray that I\'ll see sin the same way God does and that I\'ll be victorious and get closer to Him. I don\'t want to forfeit on the great things God has promised. Please just remember me. Thank you.
