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.

My 20 year old son, is struggling with drug addiction. He has actually died a few times due to overdoses, and God miraculously allowed him to be revived with no complications. I've put his name on here several times in the past.....please continue to pray for him. He gave his heart to Jesus at an early age, and struggles with what he knows is right. Drug addiction is incredibly gripping and straight out of hell as far as I'm concerned. I don't mind you sharing this as long as you do it anonymously.

Thank you so much.

I ask a special prayer for my husband and I. The last several months have been extremely hard on our business. I ask that God become the head of this business and that we are guided to make good decisions and for it we will be blessed. This is our only form of income and if we don't do well everything suffers! I believe in the power of prayer and I know God can turn any situation around and I know he will do it here.

My daughter is going through a child custody battle. Please, God, give her strength, comfort and hope for a good outcome for her as well as my granddaughter. My daughter is a wonderful mother (newly married) who wants to move to another state with her husband. She would be devastated if she lost her daughter and I fear she will turn away from God as she has been desperately praying for God's favor upon her life. Please pray for her. Thank you

In August the ER doctors found a fibroid. Some of the symptoms are heavy mental bleeding which recently has made me very anemic. I’ve had iron transfusion which was only a temporary relief. Losing so much blood in short period of times has made me miss a lot of work. Please Lord control my bleeding so I’m able to work full time again to provide for my child.
