Comet TV

Just read on the "other board" that WQDI/20 added the Comet network to one of their subchannels. That stinks since I can't decode WQDI where I'm at. I can just barely decode WEKA/41 (or <blank>/27 seeing that their PSIP is still out) on my living room TV with my outdoor antenna. Comet would have been nice on WJW 8.3 as they have a few Tribune affiliates.

Comet, Buzzr, & Newsmax should all be carried on WAOH/W16DO as they cover the Cleveland and Akron area better then WQDI & WEKA combined. (But we all know Media-Com doesn't have the up-to-date equipment to do that). Even WRAP/32 would have been perfect for these networks if they were able to get back on the air.

Newer is not always better.

Do they get cable coverage in this area?

I'm thinking WEKA & W16DO will go away in my area come winter (along with Ion)

I only decoded WQDI one Saturday morning, they may have boosted the power in testing temporarily.

Low power's rarely ever get cable coverage, unless they are the only station in a market to carry a major network like NBC, CBS, etc.

COX carried 35/29 when it was analog, but they digitized it so only those with digital TV's received the station.

TWC Akron carried 35/29 also, but I think they dropped them several years ago. (Probably when they dropped "The CAT" branding).

Funny thing is that I don't remember their picture being so awful on TWC. Lets hope that Media-Com buys new equipment for their TV stations after decommissioning WJMP/1520.

Watching channel 5 right now (The Now) and noticed that the Circle 5 logo is different. I wonder if this is part of the re-branding to News 5 Cleveland as indicated by the name change on their Facebook page.

EDIT: The News Channel 5 branding is officially gone! It's now News 5. Not crazy about the logo, though. It looks like a lottery drawing ball.

Also, I think I resolved my reception issues with WEWS. I was getting about a 80% stable signal for WEWS, with dropouts during windy/rainy weather. A few weeks ago, I flipped my Youngstown antenna around and pointed it towards the Parma farm. Since then, reception of WEWS shot up to 100%. My Youngstown antenna sits right below my main antenna, and the two are not directly connected to each other. The only thing I can think of is that my Youngstown antenna (pointed towards Youngstown) was creating multipath issues with WEWS.

A hot topic for the "other board", you know someone has a masters in marketing & graphics that had the genius idea & thought this one up... so don't be so quick to insult
