Thanks for all the explanations on TV call letters last week! After receiving two dozen mails on the issue, I think I can now safely call myself an expert on the US television system :-). Very useful was this article on the FCC site which Haydn Kuprevich forwarded to me, and which might also be useful for all other non-Americans like me.
I did finally finish the report on Andromeda's initial airdates that inspired my question, you can find it here on SlipstreamWeb. It contains info for about 45 stations, or just over a quarter of all the stations airing Andromeda. Many of the other stations either didn't reply to my mail or didn't actually have an email address listed on the site. As I'm hoping to make the site as complete as possible, I was hoping some of you would again be able to help me with this - if you live in a city which isn't listed in my Preliminary Airdate List already, I'd very much appreciate it if you'd be able to make a short call to your local station airing 'Andromeda', to ask them at what day and time they plan to air the show, and let me know their answer. You can find out which station in your area will be airing the show on this list at the official site. Hopefully in this way the list of airdates will be as comeplete as possible when the show premieres in October. Thanks a lot for your help in advance!
