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 brother is going through some very difficult times with his wife of 30+ yrs. She is falsely accusing him of infidelity with his sons fiancé and her brothers spouse.

Please pray that the devil leaves there home and her heart and brings healing to their hearts. Pray for my brother may God give him peace whatever the outcome. God bless you and many thanks!

Please pray for my son who is struggling with depression, anxiety and some other issues. His anxiety and depression are coming from sin that he prays himself to be delivered from. He is only 14 and at times feels he does not want to live. He questions why God does not answer his prayers and I do not want him to give up. Pray that the counselors and pastor he is working with will be able to get through to him and that God will restore him.

My daughter-in-law is addicted to heroin and believes she can beat this addiction on her own. She had some terrible things happen in her past, but will not seek help to work through those issues. Instead she turns to drugs to try to mask her pain. She has already spent time in jail in the past for dealing pills and is slowly destroying all relationships with those of us who love her. I pray that she will seek help and realize that things in her childhood were not her fault. I pray that she realizes she is worthy of love and doesn\'t need to hurt herself to mask her pain. I pray that she will seek God and trust that He does have a perfect plan for her life, and that He will guide her steps if she just asks. I pray for my son; may he realize there is a difference between love and in being an enabler. May he too seek God first, ask for His holy wisdom, and trust that God can help if you only let him. I pray the addiction chains are broken and true healing and forgiveness can begin.
