    iHeart HD

    Lately 96.1 and 99.9 don't appear to have any HD sub channels. 94.9, 101.5 and 107.3 still have them, what happened?

    How long has it been going? All the subchannels were there within a week ago because I had done a band-scan not too long ago.

    Right now 94.9 has an HD2 that is dead air, 101.5 and 107.3 have no subchannels in addition to 99.9 and 96.1, and Cumulus' 104.1 HD is off too. Cat Country's HD was active but would not decode, either.

    I also noticed what appear to be weaker than normal analog signals so this may be TV-repack related, or maintenance related. At least that is what I think for the iHeart stations and WDLT. Cat Country is probably just having HD troubles as per usual, ha ha.

    The cost of maintaining HD in a already crowded market is a factor. The primary purpose is feeding the analog translators.

    Most of those subchannels feed translators except TK 101's and the smooth jazz. Do you think the translators are off as the law prescribes? Hell no.

    The few times I noticed the HD issues it was only affecting 99.9 and The Rocket so I figured something was up at the Spanish Fort tower. Now that the HD issue has expanded to KSJ, TK and the Beat on the Robertsdale tower... doesn't seem like repack issues would apply.
