TVStudy for Windows is V-Soft Communications’ latest program that combines the FCC’s program for determining interference between TV Stations with an easy to use Windows launching vehicle. The basic TVStudy program was developed by the FCC for assigning channels during the repacking process and for vetting TV applications that are filed after the auction process. Unfortunately, the original TVStudy program runs only on Linux or Mac computer. What we have done is to made it possible to to run the program on a Windows computer. We’ve also vastly simplified the download and install process. By providing the program and all its data on a flash drive, we have saved hours of downloading, joining files together, decompressing, getting all the files into the right place, and figuring out how to handle the programs various dependencies. For more information on what you get please click the TVStudy link.
