Absolutely the best news I've heard in a while. Always felt Debby got kicked to the curb because of her age; TV is so disgusting when it comes to the 'company image'. Chris Wright got axed for no apparent reason. Always enjoyed his weather forecasting segments....And at this time of year....the snow forecast, hopefully, will be a welcomed return to my viewing habits. (not the actual snow of course)

Will WTTK simulcast as they did in the past....my only reception option from up North in A-Town? Fingers crossed....

Debbie Knox got the last laugh.
I'll bet the "experts" at Channel 8 wish they had her (and CBS) back.
Karma......

Yes, Chris. Here's a part of an earlier Indianapolis Star article.

"6. How strong is the WTTV signal? For viewers who rely on capturing over-the-air transmission through digital TV antennas, WTTV's signal originates near Trafalgar about 25 miles south of Indianapolis. If Indianapolis residents experience less-than-perfect reception on WTTV's UHF channel 48, they have the option of dialing in WTTV's simulcast station: WTTK, UHF channel 29. Steve Zanolini, a vice president of broadcast technology for Tribune Media Regional Operations, said the WTTK tower stands near the intersection of Michigan and Westlane roads on the Northwestside of Indianapolis."

Effort To Promote OTA TV Takes Shape

The article mentions "station groups like Dispatch Broadcast Group," which includes WTHR-13.

"The campaign to raise awareness of OTA television will last a year with events scheduled in 25 U.S. cities, including Indianapolis and Huntington, W.V."

The engineers really need to work on better antennas. Even for those of us who think they know what they're doing <g> it can be very frustrating to get good reception OTA, even in metro areas where you're just a few miles from the antenna towers.

It seems to me that OTA reception has become more of an art than a science. I had to learn quite a bit on my own to figure out how to get the best results. Analog seemed to be just better antennas and more amps to improve the reception. Much trickier business now.

But I'm tickled to death that the industry is finally getting off their collective rear ends and promoting their product. I've always considered OTA the best kept secret in entertainment value.

It's multipath. On analog, multipath just caused ghosting, on digital, you get signal loss as parts of the signal arrive in different phases. And, of course, for receivers further away, the digital cliff effect.
