All Pro Asks FCC To Cut KRTH's Digital Signal Interference
May 20, 2010 at 2:20 PM (PT)
ALL PRO BROADCASTING is filing a Petition with the FCC against CBS RADIO and KRTH/LOS ANGELES for "ongoing and destructive interference caused by the hybrid digital operations of KRTH on ALL PRO's KATY/IDYLLWILD, CA.
ALL PRO conducted an engineering analysis to demonstrate the interference that is "adversely affecting reception of KATY over a substantial portion of the area within KATY’s 60-dBµ signal contour."
ALL PRO is also supplying the FCC with a CD "containing recordings of actual interference experienced by a factory-equipped car radio. The recordings were made while the vehicle was driven along several heavily traveled SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA roads within Station KATY’s contour.
After unsuccessfully trying to get CBS to address the matter, ALL PRO Pres. WILLIE DAVIS "concluded that it had no choice but to seek redress at the FCC."
To ensure the protection to of KATY's signal, ALL PRO is "urging" the FCC staff to order a reduction of KRTH’s Digital signal power; and that CBS "cooperate with ALL PRO so that the parties can promptly resolve the problem."
