Which station? WTAT moved back to 24 after the DTV transition.

Based on the TVFool that was posted, I would imagine WTKR from Norfolk is the more likely interference source.

You are right. I don't know why I thought that. Maybe the poster should try to aim his antenna a little bit better.

Interesting. I gather that Charleston channel 40 is a tropospheric thing then?

Curious how WILM would be able to fix it.. more power? move to different channel? Or just wait for the tropo effect to end and live with it? The effect appears to go away around 830 or so.

It's not coming from Charleston, but rather Norfolk Va.

WILM put out all the power they are allowed. There's nothing they can do at this time.

Hi Guys,

Long time no see.
Just wanted to let you know we have added .3 channels on WECT and WSFX. Escape is on 6.3 and Grit is on 26.3.
Let me know what you think.

Thanks,.

Ray

I just found these channels this evening. When i get more time, I'll watch some shows, but what I see right now appears to be movies and mysteries.

Grit and Escape

Grit is a man's channel. mainly Westerns, War Movies, and Action. Escape is geared for women. Romance and lots of crime stuff such as Forensic Files, etc. Both are owned by Katz out of Atlanta.

Both are 16X9 SD, but I notice they don't quite have their AFD signalling worked out yet.

Leedogg,

My understanding was that they were keeping Bounce and This TV on their secondaries.

I don't understand the appeal of war movies, action movies, and crime shows. Give me a Greta Garbo flick or maybe "Annie Hall".

Angry CBS near Wilmington

(I have no idea if I'm doing this right-sure hope I can find my way back to the right place, should anyone have an answer!)

I was feeling sorry for myself, until I saw this post. I was disappointed I can't get CBS in Southport. Guess I can give up hope if Wilmington can't even get it!

I watch a lot of PBS, here's just one more reason why.

In order to receive this 15,000 watt station, you will need a full size UHF antenna (metal not plastic) on the outside, pointed directly to Delco.
