Hello all. Below is some info on digital/HD status of the Omaha stations - I received from the KETV chief engineer. With my home being in Morningside (Sioux City) I have been very surprised with the reception I can get from Omaha. I watched the MNF game on KETV (I believe they are transmitting at 700Kw) and my signal strength was 100%. I also get almost 100% signal from WOWT so it looks like 1000Kw will easily get the job done here if you have a decent antenna & amp (my reception from KMTV is hit & miss). Here's the Omaha station info:
KMTV-DT (CBS) is still running 700Kw ERP, will go up to 1000Kw here when the FCC grants their license which should be any day now.
WOWT-DT (NBC) on channel 22 is running 1000Kw ERP.
KPTM (Fox) channel 43 is changing out their antenna this month, and will run 1000Kw ERP, look for them by the end of the month.
WB (KXVO) will not be passing HD initially.
