FCC Plans DTV Translator Service to Help OTA Broadcasters Fill in Dead Spots
TV Technology reports that FCC Chairman Kevin Martin said he has a plan for a new DTV translator
service to help broadcasters fill in dark areas in the old analog
coverage where receivers are not picking up DTV signals. It’s not clear
how many broadcasters will want to install new transmission facilities
beyond those already required by the DTV transition, but the new regime
would add to the tools broadcasters can use to avoid losing viewers.
