Haha, I am sure it's a big job to take it apart, build a temp set in the newsroom, and build a new set. Although it will look great I am sure when you all build one. Thankfully Centerpointe hasn't been build yet, would of had to change out the backdrop on the set, so you all are safe for a few more years haha.

Cool! I look forward to some HD on MeTV.

Looks great! I noticed that a few days ago.

I wish the remaining local SD channels would at a minimum deliver 16x9 SD. In particular, 56.2 and 56.3 - on 2 different tv's they look like old anamorphic DVDs (squished in from the sides) - and one of them is a recent 32" Sceptre (cheapo from walmart). 46.2 & 46.3 would also work better as 16x9SD - most everything I notice on 46.2 looks wide screen anyway so not sure why they don't just deliver it as 16x9.

Nice! Not in HD I guess? 18.2 looks good though.

It's the trifecta:

18.1: 1080
18.2: 720
18.3: SD

I'm hearing Justice is now on 36-3 and Antenna was bumped to a new 36-6. Anyone seeing it?

I guess MeTV on 18.2 has zoomed in on some of the shows now? The side bars aren't as big.

Channel 36.1 thru 36.6 signal loss.

Has anyone else had any problems? Mine started gradually about 10 days ago. For the last 4 days it's unwatchable. Channel 18 or any other Lexington channel hasn't been affected, just 36.
I'm about 40 miles away 'as the crow flies' and due to terrain also, so a 5-10 dB loss is the difference in getting a signal or not.

reception problems

hello all,

i'm looking for advice - i'm cutting the cable tie and trying to just receive channels OTA. i purchased an antenna (relatively cheapo radio shack) and have no problems getting all local stations EXCEPT wkle/wket.

checking on tv fools, apparently i'll need an attic antenna at the least (surprising to me, as i live less than a mile from ket headquarters). i might just go ahead a purchase a rooftop antenna, but before i do, does anyone have any recommendations or experience with room antennas and ket reception within lexington?

if not, any recommendations for rooftop antennas?

thanks in advance!
