Now if WOIO only keeps MeTV when WUAB slides over (when is that supposed to happen? Soon I would guess).
True the amount of PSA's has increased ... & no more Hollie Strano dance routines
... I still find the Radar useful for lake effect snow & oncoming storms.
I would hope Me goes to 55 or elsewhere... i certainly can't get it on 19, plus I'll lose the Bounce.

It was about 15' away from my UHF antenna, but I didn't notice much difference before and after. I suppose your difference in summer and winter signals could just have to do with the weather. There's a lot of regional tropo in the summer caused by nighttime cooling. Maybe it's just enough to bring in the weaker semi-locals.
That may make some sense, in addition to possibly snow on the roof obstructing a signal too (since I'm in an attic), though even when I had the Outdoor, the signals from 23 Ion faded in winter months.
