They will probably make the switch to digital only when analog LPTVs are forced to go digital, at which point, the value of WLFM-LD will plummet - it would be accessible only to those who have a TV set with an antenna which is actually in use, and said antenna would have to be either low band ready or so close to the transmitter site that non-lowband antennas are overwhelmed by its signal.
Weren't they the old WXOX 65? & had the permit to go D on 44?

Are you being sarcastic now?!.... yes 32 will be a channel clogger stomp on Chicago for you!

We should know before the 21st if WRAP signs on it's digital.
TY, I knew it was mentioned here, now that has been a loooong 30 days! I thought they were still broadcasting Analog shopping channel to a few streets in Shaker Heights?
I'd be bringing it down from my attic antenna now instead of the roof, so no "apples to apples" comparison. I always thought 6QS had a noted difference over the 59, what I never cared for is the flimsy shielding in the 6.
Ideally I will have to put an amp in the attic & J pole for better aiming, as far as the downlead I'll have to live with the 59.

At the latest at the FCC it was 32, & I believe it was going to the farm.... Snowdog?
