Database Updates? re: Suggested changes

.
Curious to know what a database update includes?

For example, this message was recently displayed:

Quote:
The transmitter database was last updated on February 7, 2011.
And, on the Signal Analysis display page, there is a database date indication:
db datecode
201102080131
Looking through several stations displayed at KY coordinates; did not see:
- Central KY & TN, dated January 9.
- WCPO RF Channel Change, dated December 12.
The TN portion of above was suggested on November 22:
WCTE-DT Cookeville, TN, Transmitter & Antenna
For Dallas - Fort Worth:
- Dallas-Ft. Worth corrections, dated December 1.
Although, did not check every single change in the above DFW post.

There has been at least one, or more, database datecode changes since the above suggestions were provided.

Thanks for the many updates in the recent database:

Quote:
The transmitter database was last updated on February 17, 2011.
Looks like the DFW and other changes were covered.

A couple of items* remain:

---------------------------------------

WCTE-DT in Cookeville TN:

* WCTE is currently operating at 57 KW with antenna height of 412 meters (HAAT).

The current TVfool database shows numbers that reflect 200 KW & probably a different antenna height (likely represents the original construction permit (CP) for 200 KW that was never implemented).

WCTE has a CP for 200 KW ERP, but the facilities are to be different than the original CP for 200 KW.

(Referenced in previous posts: here and here.

----------------------------------------

WDKY (Lexington, KY), real channel 31

* Add virtual channel 56.1
