KOAA HD still at low power

From their Web site:
KOAA and HDTV - Updated 08-03-06
KOAA-DT is NOW on the air and broadcasting on channel 5-1, RF chanel 42. KOAA-DT is broadcasting at reduced power due to a problem with the feed line, but reception should be good in Colorado Springs and Pueblo. Rural areas will have a problem receiving our signal at this time, but we hope to have this problem fixed soon. Both Colorado Springs and Pueblo cable systems are currently working on getting KOAA-DT onto their respective systems.

I'm bummed about this. I keep trying, but I can't even get a trace of signal at my house. Maybe by Sunday.

As much as Colorado Springs has grown in the last 10 years, it's still BFE unfortunately. *sigh*

Just checked during lunch (the perks of working from home) and 705 is lit up on the Moxi box of love. It was broadcasting some soap.

We shall see if Earl/Office/Leno/Conan show up in HD tonight. :)

Nevermind on that previous post, as 705 has gone AWOL.

I guess this teaches KOAA about setting expectations -> always better to give out a very reasonable delivery date and communicate that, instead of getting all our hopes up around the Olympics, then now...

I'm getting KOAA-DT fine in the Stetson Hills area through OTA (although lower signal strength than the other 3 networks).
Well, except that they went completely dark Thurs nite around 11:00 for some reason!
Definitely not switching the HDTiVo to 5-1 until they get all this worked out!!

KOAA-DT was up and running on 705 via cable card as of Sunday night for the Hall of Fame Game. However, the audio feed was standard stereo rather than the 5.1 they mentioned at the start of the game.

I live in Penrose and get KOAA-DT, KRDO-DT, KTSC-DT with a small urban roof antenna. Never looses lock on any of the 3. Best of luck to the rest of you, but at 38 miles and around "the corner" I get a 15 on all 3.
