We will find out the result after August 1st.

Hopefully TV DXers with ATSC 3.0 tuners will be the first to report it!:biggrin:cool::bounce

RF-LO channel 2 at 3 Kw? Will anybody be able to actually receive that?

That will be interesting.

The time interleaving of ATSC 3.0 should overcome some of the low band noise disadvantages of 8 VSB. How much remains to be seen.

The station may also opt for more robust modulation scheme with lower bandwidth for an even further improvement. The picture quality will be fine due to the low bitrate of HEVC.

Did you notice that KBRO is owned by Echonet (Charlie Ergan)?

Someone asked if anyone is going to be able to watch KBRO-LD with 3 kw on channel 2. Well, KQRO is running ATSC 1.0 on channel 2 with 3 kw and i receive a solid signal from it 55 miles away from the transmitter site. ATSC-3.0 is supposed to be better than ATSC 1.0, too!
