Just talked with Bob Lee, GM of WDBJ - CBS (Ch 18) for Southwest Virginia area. We're getting very close. They are working a microwave link problem between the new studio and Poor Mountain, and when that is fixed, they will throw the switch. He said it could even be tonight, but more likely later this week. They will pass all HD and be full power from the get-go.
He will email a group of us who have expressed interest to tell us when the switch has been thrown, but I'm checking a couple of times a day to see if there's any testing.
Hope the antenna and rotor I put up are going to get the job done.
Will post more on this thread as I know it.
