Signal interference causes problems for some viewers

Reported by KPLC Staff:

Some viewers trying to watch KPLC this morning were greeted with wavy horizontal lines when they turned on their television sets this morning.  Anyone watching KPLC analog with an outside antenna could not watch morning programming due to severe co-channel interference.

KPLC-DT was almost nonexistent in most places including Cameron Communications, and the cable companies to the west. According to KPLC engineer John Scott, co-channel intereference can be much worse in locations on the Gulf.

Scott says, viewers should be able to see KPLC programming again around 10am. But the trouble may return. Scott also says, we can expect the same thing late tonight and tomorrow morning if the current weather pattern does not move out. There may be continued problems for more distant receivers and cable outlets like Charter.
