Why do 100k WSTR (2 of them!), WSRV, and WUBL need translators?
I couldn't agree more. 100k flamethrowers shouldn't have them. Granted being in the northeast we tap out at 50k but having just driven up from Atlanta this weekend and taken a few stations essentially into SC, the concept seems ridiculous IMHO.
I can understand if they are rebroadcasting an HD subchannel, but that wasn't listed in the OP nor have I heard anything being promoted on those signals (like the WGST translator with the Hugh Jass null in the NE quadrant).
Why Does WWWQ need translators? BTW, the translators for Star are not correct, they maybe on the FCC database but Star does not even broadcast its HD channels on either translator.
Translators are a joke, it says that HD in not viable.
