Denver DTV on-the-air From Lookout Mountain

Over the past several years RF Report has covered the difficulty Denver broadcasters have had putting up a new tower on Lookout Mountain to provide DTV service to Denver.

I first mentioned the Denver situation in the “Other items of Interest” section of RF Current for April 17, 2000.

After an act of Congress that took away the local government’s authority to stop construction, work started on the tower. Stations are now broadcasting from the new tower. Ken Freed discusses the new site in detail, with photos, in this week’s TV Technology article Denver Finally Gets its DTV.

Doug Lung is one of America's foremost authorities on broadcast RF technology. He has been with NBC since 1985 and is currently vice president of broadcast technology for NBC/Telemundo stations.
