RF Shorts - Sept. 18, 2009

  • • The FCC has approved [PDF] a move by two Ft. Worth stations television stations. KTVT will move from channel 11 to 19 and KTXA will relocate from channel 19 to 29. Also see the Erratum [PDF] on the change in the Fort Worth DTV Table of Allotments. The FCC also amended the Post-Transition Table of DTV Allotments to allow WKYT-TV in Lexington KY to move from channel 13 to 36. In Chicago, WLS-TV's DTV channel was changed [PDF] from 7 to 44.
  • • In case you thought Clarity Media Systems LLC gave up on using the 2 GHz TV broadcast auxiliary band to provide a video programming to trucks and RV's at truck stops after the FCC denied its wavier request to operate CARS stations at Flying J Truck Plazas [PDF], it appears it hasn't. The commission's Public Notice listing Ex Parte Presentations and Post-Reply Comment Period Filing in Permit-But-Disclosure Proceedings [PDF] listed an oral presentation from Clarity Media Systems, LLC to Commissioner Baker and the Media Bureau. No additional information was available.
