Lets see, we have BEL shutting down the power until 5:15, I would lay the odds at 20 to 1 that it will not be on before 6 pm, then we have coral cable.. power up all there equip and start transmitting again, my guess is that it will take them at least 10 minutes, when is kick-off scheduled?
With scheduled blackouts like this BEL do actually have a good punctuality record, and quite often get the power back on early. On one occasion I seem to remember that they warned of two disconnections but the second one didn't happen, or if it did it was very brief.
No, the problem will be Coral Cable getting their systems back up on a Sunday afternoon.
I wonder whether anyone has pointed out to BEL what's on the TV on Sunday afternoon? Maybe they can bring their second shutdown forward a bit? I'm sure it's just to reconnect circuits they've been working on since the morning. Does anyone know key people there personally (the personal touch is always the most productive)?
