The reason for the missing coverage overlay is because the FCC recorded a change to their callsign. It used to be KBIM-TV, and it is now KBIM-DT. This makes the transmitter look like a "different" transmitter than what we have in the overlay database.

Coverage overlays take a long time to re-process, and they can lag behind the "current" database by several weeks. Since the map tool is not finding a match for KBIM-DT in the overlay database, it is saying that it cannot display a corresponding coverage map.

As an immediate fix for this, we will make the KBIM-DT coverage overlay match the KBIM-TV overlay (since transmitter specs have not changed, the overlays ought to be identical) without having to wait for the next round of re-processing to finish.

I hope this helps.
