Unfortunately, K43LW on Mt Francis, is only 1kw and is severely
hampered by the hills and terrain of Prescott. Additionally, there
is another RF43 on Bill Willaims Mtn about 40 miles away. Many areas
have LOS to Mingus and Williams but not Mt. Francis. That is why it
is imperative to capture K42AC. There is another PBS translator in
Flagstaff on RF14 but it cannot be received because there is also a
translator for KUTP, RF 14 on Mt Francis, here in Prescott.
It is what you could call " A MESS."
