It is an historic day at KBTX Media, as at 2:35 p.m. Saturday, KBTX began transmitting on our new one million-watt tower.
Crews have diligently been working throughout the last few weeks to install these multi-million dollar upgrades that have now increased our signal strength by a factor of 40 and drastically increased our viewing area.
We will be operating at full power for the next 48 hours at least, but if you're receiving this signal from the outlying portions of our viewing area, we still have some adjustments to make, so you may lose a bit of signal strength on occasion.
Also, if you or someone you know has a digital converter box and was picking up KBTX on our low-power digital signal but now can't see us, you're asked to do an auto scan on the box. The device should find the new high power signal. You may need to turn off and restart the box before auto scanning.
If you or someone you know are getting this stronger signal, we definitely want to hear from you. We have been answering your questions and taking your comments here at KBTX.com for weeks now, and we want to hear more from you.
Log on to our digital blog, which you can access through our homepage, and let us know where you're seeing us from, and how good the signal is.
