    You kinda said the same thing twice.

    If you're tired of the overpowered translators, file FCC complaints against them at the following link.

    Too bad the complaints don't do anything.

    The FCC feels complaints need to have some meat or evidence included. It's sort of like police called out for a domestic violence call. If neither victim have any sign of being physically assaulted neither party gets arrested but rather urged to separate until cooler heads prevail. If an engineer provided some field strength readings then you bet the FCC would take a hard look. Either way, a complaint has some weight. The FCC might not rush out to see for themselves but might phone or send a letter suggesting the station make sure they are compliant. And even if that doesn't happen, it creates a paper trail on the station. Remember the FCC's workload is massive. It might not seem they're doing anything but all the while they are investigating and building a case before they pounce. Many times they'll take just enough action to resolve the issue versus blow through their budget just to make a point with one station that might not be able to pay a fine that can return some of those dollars spent.

    Funny. You actually think that will result in something being done about it. The only way these translators would be looked at is if another licensed station complains about interference.

    Now look, I'm not going to come out and say that Centro de Vida Cristiana (or whatever their name is) is broadcasting illegally. But what I will say is that in their current setup, there is a lot of interference to KTWL, KTHT, and KFNC. What that set up is, only their engineer knows.

    Be sure to include a detailed plot of field strength readings made with an accepted and calibrated meter (a good one is in the $10,000 range) and evidence of listener complaints about reduction in service. Make sure the person signing any affidavits has a degree or qualifications that lend credibility to the measurements.
