Two low-powered stations in the Kansas City and Topeka area are off the air. The HVAC system failed at the transmitter site used by KAJF-LD and KCMN-LD. Both stations filed for special temporary authority to go dark. They have six months to complete repairs.

The both have 7 channels so that's not something you can readily farm out to another station. Looking at the FCC application history, both went dark just over three years ago.

A failed "HVAC system" shouldn't take very long to fix. The question is whether the high heat took out some or all of the transmitter equipment.

Have not been able to pick up a strong enough signal from KAJF 21 for several months! Fortunately KCMN 42 (which has Decades 42.1, H&I 42.2 and Movies! 42.3) has been on the air. The signal of KCMN 42 is weak and pixilates for days / weeks but at least able to watch for the most part!!!

KCMN 42 went off the air yesterday and is still off. I sent HC2 Broadcasting a message but doubt they will reply!!
