I have informed a friend who installs FTA and I know that he will pass this on to others. He was going to check his FTA setup but has not informed me of the results. I need to install a new dish for FTA otherwise I would check it.

Not to burst your bubble, but having only one signal verification after weeks and weeks of repeated solicitations on this board does not, in my opinion, constitute "great progress" unless you, by the Lord's arithmetic, consider going from zero to one a seven-fold increase.



Nick,

I understand your point. Thanks.

I have read your posts here and I am surprised that until today you haven't got your FTA system up and running :confused: You really need to get it working so you can verify your own station. That is the 1st order of business. Your website should promote the FTA systems and "how to install" it.

I would suggest you start a new thread for members here to verify TP signal for your station at their locations. This will at least give you an idea of the coverage.

Like many already mentioned, promoting your station is very important. You can do it on your website, in print, and by participating in several related forums and religious events.

The airwaves are full of religious stations. Your message will need to capture the audience. What unique programming / message are you using? Do you have talk shows, news, lectures, sermons, etc.

Having your station on FTA will reach many areas where your station is not carried by local cable companies or pay satellite service. However, as mentioned earlier, FTA is a niche market here in the USA. I would add internet streaming to help reach your audience. Then do a survey to gauge the the best method to reach your audience.

Having a video feed will help promote your audio feed.
