When you say 'currently broadcasting at lower power' are you implying
that that is going to change?  I ask because I live in an apartment in
Glendale and since the transistion I can't even pick up KTTV and, while
I can scan and get KCOP, I can't get a lock.  KABC and channel 9 are
fine.  This is with an indoor VHF antenna attached to an HDHomerun. I'm
only about 12 miles from the transmitter according to tvfool.
