End of An Era: KWTV To Take Down Historic Broadcast Tower - News9.com - Oklahoma City, OK - News, Weather, Video and Sports |
End of An Era: KWTV To Take Down Historic Broadcast Tower - News9.com - Oklahoma City, OK - News, Weather, Video and Sports |: "By the fall of 1954, we reached the widest coverage of any station in the southwest with the view from the top reaching a 60-mile horizon."
Which brings us to the question "What happens to your repeater when the Big Stick goes away?".
For example, radio operators looking for new repeater location. That news was replicated months ago in the New Mexico section.
What are your options?
One would be more digital resources such as Echolink, IRLP, and Allstar. Another solution would be MORE repeaters scattered about on the same frequency with different tones, ex. 146.79 in Oklahoma City and Edmond.
The cost, either way, will go up.
What are you doing today to plan for the day the Big Stick goes away?
