WTHR Wants to Boost Signal After Viewer Complaints

WTHR has asked the FCC if it can boost the output of its transmitter after hearing complaints about its over the air signal.

The Indianapolis Business Journal said the station filed the request in June after receiving complaints from more than 40 viewers, “since WTHR has transitioned to [digital], viewers have repeatedly complained that they experience reception problems when trying to view WTHR’s broadcasts.”

WTHR went as far as sending engineers to viewers’ homes to measure signal strength. It also has incrementally dialed up power on two previous occasions in an attempt to remedy reception problems since the 2009 digital transition.

Phil Bremen, an associate professor in the Telecommunications Department at Ball State University, told the IBJ the increase in power for the signal makes sense, “In a business where margins keep shrinking, nobody wants to give up any viewers by default.”
