The stations didn't actually change - what they did is they started broadcasting that they would change on the 5th at 2 AM. But there's no month field in that particular PSIP table, so they can only say "the 5th," not "Nov. 5th."
The problem is, many of them started broadcasting that info on Oct. 5th, which has frequently fooled our Pals in the past into changing that very day, instead of waiting a month. (The Pals always change back the next day, when the stations are still reporting they're on DST but will change on the 5th.)
Looking at schultdw's data, it appears this year some of them didn't start reporting the upcoming change until 4 AM. I don't know if that delay helped his Pal avoid making the same mistake this year.
It also appears a couple of stations in our area think the change will happen Oct. 29. That hasn't been correct for about 10 years, so those two stations must be really slow about updating their systems.
