Has anyone noticed a difference with WCWB? Last Thursday the signal here was really bad, but it has since improved. Today it is back to it's regular signal level in the middle of "Normal", but there is no picture, just a black screen
I've checked the antenna, amps, FM block, everything is fine and the rest of the stations are preforming as they usually do.
On the FCC site I noticed WCWB applied for a new STA, but there was no data on what changes they made. Did they change something like their hight or power?
While over at the FCC I noticed that WPCB has filed for their license, looks like another low power license mistake like WTAE. I also noticed that WQEX filed for an STA. Is the station even on? The signal on ch.26 here is 0. Still no FCC action on WNPA's applications
Good news for those east of Weirton. WTOV has also applied to alter their STA. They raised their power. My signal level is double what it once was (though it still isn't as high as WPGH, WPXI, & KDKA).
Atmospheric conditions were really cool this weekend. For nearly 2 days I was receiving excellent signal from ABC and Fox in Cleveland. It was nice to be able to see a Digital ABC station for a change. For a while I was also receiving WB from Columbus, they had all the DTV bells and whistles on in their signal; TV ratings, Show Title & Description, Digital Closed Captions, Multi-language. Why don't our stations do that! What was really weird was having 2 channels mapped to 53-1, at fist I thought WPGH was multicasting.
Robert, I hope construction at WFMJ is going well. I might be able to pick up WFMJ at 800' with 200Kw. I'm at 1280' and could pull in WQED when it was at 20Kw. I have a question for you. Can digital signals pass through analog signals? WKBN is also easy to receive, but in the FCC's excellent wisdom they put WKBN on ch.41. We have a huge 77Kw translator on ch.41. I just wonder if the STBs will pick out the digital transmission if there is an analog on the same channel?
