Yeah... Going from 44 to ch 2. I'd want to know that. Should re-brand themselves as channel 2.

I was just thinking about that, yesterday, and the two I put out by the curb some time ago. Pack rat that I am, you'd think I'd have kept those. Certainly kept everything else.

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.

Since it appears that it is up to each station (or group of stations) to announce their NEW Channel Allocation, is anyone coalescing this information prior to release of the final FCC Notice????

How will tvfool keep up with all the changes? Will their reports still be useful?

As the construction permits for all the changes are filed, TVFool.com can incorporate them into their database.

There's already an option on the TVFool.com reports to view either current or pending applications. That option will be perfect for choosing between how things stand now and how they'll look after everyone has moved.

That said, it's not uncommon for TVFool to make mistakes. I suspect their message boards will be quite busy with notices that "no, station WXYZ hasn't moved to their new channel yet" and the like.

Unknowing minds do not wish to know.

The rest of us are going to have lots of fun until 4 / 1 / 2017, April Fools Day .

In my market, the maintainer of the lists has added another column "Post Repack Channel".

We all will be guessing based on thin air ways and one surprise shutting down report which was told to us long ago has popped up again.

That ATSC 3.0 appears to be legal very soon, adds another dimension to the problem.

Only a fool would try to keep up the reports until the big list is public.

The discussion on ATSC 3.0 http://www.avsforum.com/forum/showth...8&goto=newpost has been loud and not useful IMHO.
