    Temporally Dark and have 6 months to fix repairs. Maybe another station can temporally pick up channels.

    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.

    They also went silent back in May of 2016. There may be a pattern emerging.
