I lost channel 35 and channel 8 from Richmond sometime last week. You know when channels are lost you start wondering about a loose wire or something on your antenna system, but I emailed channel 35 and the engineer emailed my back today and said the big snow storm we had last week damaged the transmitter and they are running on low power. I live in Staunton so I can't get them now. I did not email channel 8, and I don't know what happened to them, but I am wondering if they use the same facility on the same mountain? Not sure on that one.

And I see from some of the old posts that people are getting CBS on channel 43, and I guess everyone knows by now that channel 3 added 3.5 which is CBS also. Looks like we have all the networks in the valley now.

Yes, channel 8 & 35 do in fact share the same transmitting facility.

Did I hit the wrong button in the forum? I should have "posted a reply" instead of "start a new thread"? Sorry about that. Clean it up if you need to.
