  • KFPB-LD has come online on RF channel 50 and IDs as 50.x. It carries Video Zona TV as its primary subchannel. The station's community of license is Globe, but the station actually broadcasts from South Mountain and serves Phoenix. Its signal does not reach anywhere near Globe.
  • In Casa Grande, analog station K43CO has surrendered its license and has shut off.
  • All of the stations owned by Mohave County are now confirmed flash cut to digital, except for Bullhead City stations K02HR, K04GT, K07YJ, K09KG, K11LX and K12OF; Littlefield station K31EA; Colorado City station K27EJ; and Moccasin station K35EE. Mojave County also owns two stations licensed to Needles CA that are now digital: K17BN and K31HY. If you want the full list of converted stations, just let me know.

Here are notable updates to translators:
  • K14NA-D Globe/Miami has never had an analog signal. It flash cut from K57BO on analog channel 57 to K14NA-D on digital channel 14. It is a translator of KTVK 3.1/RF 24 Phoenix and IDs as channel 3.1.
  • K59CI Globe/Miami has flash cut from analog on channel 59 to digital on channel 27 per STA. It has been recommended by the FCC for a construction permit, so one should be coming soon. The station is a translator of KPHO-TV 5.1/RF 17 Phoenix and IDs as channel 5.1. The analog signal on channel 59 has been shut off.
  • K61FB Globe/Miami has flash cut from analog on channel 61 to digital on channel 48 per STA. The station is a translator of KPNX 12.1/RF 12 Mesa and IDs as channel 12.1. The analog signal on channel 61 has been shut off.
Once again, thanks for all the updates!

Most of these changes were made several updates ago, but I'm just posting a note here for completeness.

I think we've got all the updates for the major broadcasts. Not sure about all of the low power translator stations, but we should have everything that shows up in the latest FCC database updates.

We do not see any active records for K59CI any more. It looks like the record was removed from the FCC database as of November 9, 2010. Is this station still on the air?
