WNCN switched back to the main antenna this afternoon at 1:20 PM. We tried to switch yesterday and overnight, but the rain never let up. Thanks for all the feedback. The most surprising thing we learned is of the viewers that called or emailed us, 100% of antennas in the attic lost us completely. Indoor antennas were able to get the weaker signal just fine after adjusting the antenna. Makes little sense, but that's science. Go Figure!

I'm in Winterville, just south of Greenville, with an attic antenna. 60ish miles LOS to the tower. I haven't lost you, WRAL, or WRAZ. Go figure. I got a few breakups here and there but that's all.

No dice on any channels this evening. I used to tune in 17.2 once in a while to watch antenna tv, but I don't have to do that anymore. I don't even try to watch Triangle channels much anymore, since I get so many channels already. I have better luck with Charleston SC than Raleigh.

Great evening for a sunset (finally)! Just tuned in and got 17.1 and 17.2 at nearly 100% strength! Great job, y'all! Thanks again for telling us what was going on.

Does anyone happen to know why FOX50 still has to drop to SD when they run a ticker? I thought FOX Network actually designed their HD delivery to allow local affiliates to run tickers/bugs/etc right on top of the HD feed without having to drop to SD. Sorry if this has been covered before, I know its been going on for at least a year...
