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.

Please pray for me and my son - I'm feeling totally broken and worthless, I'm in financial distress and just feel like nothing I do is ever good enough. I'm a single woman of 53 and feeling very lonely. I'm in a bible group and I was doing much better but my son has brought me down. He blames me for things happenining in his life he is addicted to pot and has a lot of anger. He is 25 and has made several bad choices and is having to pay for those choices. He has moved back in with me and that is putting additional stress on me. We had a big argument last night and he basically told me that I was a terrible mother and he doesn't even think I like him most of the time.

I know that the devil is doing this and I keep praying but I really want my son to get help. He is far far far from GOD and is refusing to get counseling. I don't know what to do and I'm not good at tough love

We need folks to rally around mothers suffering in silence due to the mental health stigma. We need donations, people to register for the event (its free), and prayers that no more mothers take their lives or the lives of their children due to untreated mental health issues.

After almost a year of being out of work, I have been asked to submit an offer to keep with a company I'm doing interim work for. It just means moving my family, changing churches, schools, and doctors. It is causing a lot of stress at home. Pray that we stay connected and have wisdom to ask boldly. If they accept, then the Lord shows His glory through all the logistics.

I have been renting a room for over a week and it is month to month for six months. It may not be the ideal living arrangement but made a commitment and hope the owner; a woman and her children, do too, for at least the six months agreed. I have nothing and no where to go, so renting a room and working part time, and saving is all I can do. In the mean time Lord God help me in having a home where I will never have to worry about being homeless again. Only You know where that is. Send Arch angels to surround the home and my room, keep the peace and the communication open with them. There is a small negative vibe since last night there, so I don't know, I merely am quiet, clean and pay the rent, only sleep and shower there. Holy Spirit surround me along with angels hovering around me at Dublin Street in Calif, God's gps knows where that is. Unite prayer warriors for this imminent request. Also secure part time job and grow, or locate the permanent company where I can work to retire.

I know You knows my pain God, You always know what was happened because You see everything a most hidden corner, Father you say, knock and the door will be opened to you. I come with a broken heart, I feel hopeless and emptiness. i depend on you and still hope, if God deign, please God soften and touch Damianus heart for me, He means a lot to me. I really love him and disappointed to him at the same time. I can't touch his heart, only God can change people's hearts. i know that prayer is a powerful thing, please help me face things that are beyond my capabilities. because God, You have power to help me. if you do not want this reconciliation to happen, please give me strength to overcome the bitterness. Teach me how to remain grateful when the hardest one, teach me to love You more than anything. I really need a miracle, thank you

Our Father, please surround my 19 year-old grandson, Alex, with an army of prayer warriors. He claims he is an atheist, but I trust that deep down he knows better. After all, your word tells us that when a child is raised in the way he should go, when he grows old, he will not depart from it. He's had a tough life, but You and I know that can make him better, stronger, more caring towards others. So, Lord, I pray that he will soon return to his belief in You, that he will be the Christ-like, loving man You (and I) want him to be. I pray in the name of the Father, Your son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. I love You....

Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
