KPBS 89.5FM Grows in San Diego County

I do not pay Cox or TW for TV reception...I have an HD antenna. So I can't get radio via cable TV. I have extra antenna wires on my radios, so I don't plan on adding more. Plus the KPBS signal was fine until the move, even on little pocket portable radios.
You need to add some repeaters so the areas now affected with weak signal are able to get the station w/o resorting to unnecessary modifications to antennas or extension cables.
The wildfire excuse is rather lame...are you saying that no measures have been taken to clear the area around the transmitters on Mt. Miguel? Your TV station and many others are still there. There is more to this move than you are telling.

KPBS 89.5FM Grows in San Diego County

89.5 signal to my area of Escondido has become unusable. Unfortunately I can't receive KPCC, but after 10 years of good signal to Escondido I no longer can listen to KPBS...it is just distorted noise. It went bad over a week ago and there has been no improvement. Signal is poor in San Marcos, but that has been the case for many years.
Internet streaming is not free to mobile devices. I used to listen on a portable radio while I did other work. No more.
The signal from Mt. Miguel was fine, now the signal from Mt. Soledad is being blocked by the hills of Escondido. Seems like they want to favor the people living closer to the coast.
I am very disappointed in this supposed improvement.
