Fox28 has had trouble with its off-air digital signal up on Kneeland. The wind has really caused problems with the alignment with the STL (Station to Transmitter Link). Station engineers are working to batten down the problems as we speak.

Ha...good one, Rockhouse. The quantity of hydroponic tomatoes glutting the market must be intense. Shoot, with all of the indoor growing shops, and all.
I'd say someone is freezing his bells off.
Just a little information exchange: While KBVU Fox29 and KVIQ CBS6 have already made the conversion to digital from analog, as mandated by the U.S. Government (and at a great expense), KEMY-33, KUVU-CW9 and KEUV -31 (Univision) will not be making the change from analog to digital at this time.You will still be able to receive these stations, along with the KEAZ-36 color bars being generated and the Trinity Broadcasting signal at Channel 48.
Full power stations were mandated to change while low power stations, (the aforementioned) were not.
Just so you know, the digital conversion has been in effect for over two years with the top 100 market stations in the nation making the change a long time ago. The lower 100 market stations were the stations that were given a Feburary 17th, 2009 deadline.
As far as broadcasting in High Definiton...whew, give the local stations a chance. Let them upgrade to digital first, before asking them to invest another huge amount into broadcasting a High Definition signal.
By the way, DTV is not HDTV. KBVU-Fox28 is broadcasting FoxHD signals WHEN the HD programs are present. The programming, like the rest of society hasn't caught up with the quick-as-a-blink technological changes occurring in television.
It takes money, folks. Everything takes money.
I produced a documentary on Viola McBride in the months before she passed away. I was witness to her entire collection of photographs, as presented to me by Andy and Joanne McBride. I can tell you, she didn't look at all like that painting. In the photographs I saw throughout her life, she had her hair cropped very close to her head. Viola described it as a boy-cut. But, I could be wrong. Perhaps it was when She and her husband Rex lived in Mexico or Ireland. Or, perhaps it was out at Bear River. But, I doubt it. Strongly. But, I could be wrong.
What a sucker I am. A Rose is a Rose is a Rose.
"The South Side" is an extremely treasured source for blues, rhythm & blues and soul music fans. The airwaves would be a bland and vapid place without it on Friday nights. Congratulations to Chas on "DJ of the Month" and great job to KHUM for helping to keep it alive and well on the North Coast and now through streaming sources...nationwide.
Chas, if you want to co-host a purely bubblegum show, let me know...."Yummy, Yummy, Yummy, I got love in my tummy.....Oh, never mind.
