Thanks Johanna.

I am way up in Jacksonville, Onslow co. and noticed my TV picked up WILT instead of FOX 24 WTAT Charleston, which I normally would receive. I did not even notice until later on the next day as I was flipping around the dial the night before that a new signal was detected at the time.

WUNJ additional subchannel and Tropospheric effects on WILM

Greetings!

I notice in some of the OTA guides for the wilmington area that 39.5 is showing up for WUNJ and the UNCTV website mentions that 39.5 will become the UNC-MX channel that is currently cable only. Also, 39.1 is showing additional compression on their signal possibly indicating they are making more room.

Any one hear when they will actually start broadcasting UNC-MX OTA?


On another note, WILM and the troposheric effect seems to not be so bad this year. I found the following web site showing maps of the tropospheric effect if you all are interested. My improvement may also be due to using an HDHR4-US instead of an HDHR3-US as well.

dxinfocentre.com

Regards!

I see WWAY has started showing the weatherbug stations on their news since the guy from WTVD took over. I wonder if I joined weather bug if they would show mine? I send to many sites, but I had no luck joining that site when I tried. There doesn't seem to be very many to choose from around the area now. I also wish they would put some program data on Cozi TV and fix that audio glitch.

I noticed also yesterday that Escape has audio problems on 6.3 with it sounding garbled.

What is going on with WWAY 3.3? Can they not get program data on the guide? Anytime I want to see what's going to be on I have to go to the Internet to find out. Do they not have an engineer working there?

I'm beginning to wonder if Daryl and myself are the only ones who watch TV over the air out of Wilmington anymore, especially since nobody from inside the market boundary counties ever seems to have anything to say! I remember a time when the Wilmington stations were the best ones to watch. Where are the viewers from Brunswick and Columbus counties? Pender or Bladen?

Haha, I still watch quite a bit of over the air programming even though I have cable. I love watching these networks that are aired on the sub channels that broadcast many of the classic TV shows and movies. There are quite a few like for example COZI TV, MeTV, RetroTV, H&I network. PBJ, AntennaTV, GetTV, GritTV and ThisTV just to name a few. The good old days of viewing TV.

I use OTA only in brunswick county and pick up the stations broadcasting from Delco area. I can't pick up the ones on the north side of wilmington(and don't want to rig an antenna for them. :-) ) ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX,UNC, CW and their sub channels are plenty(almost too much!)

I am using Mythtv with 2 HDHomerun tuners for recording.
Regards!

Let me know what you think.

Thanks,.

Ray, I realize this is an old post, but if you're still around. Any chance you could push DirecTV to add 6.3 and 26.3 to their OTA database for us AM21 users?

Thanks.

I am about to get back to D* and would also like to see those channels from the OTA box. They have a good deal now compared to the cable snake.

I have been watching WECT and WWAY OTA up here in Hubert for more than 8 years now, since dumping Time Warner Cable. My reception is pretty solid except for once in a while in the very early AM. I am exactly 68 miles from the transmitters.

For those who care, WWAY is getting a new Chief Engineer. He starts in a couple of weeks. He is a guy who works with me here in Greensboro. I think he will do well there.

Nice, maybe he will get the guide data going for 3.3 Cozy TV and the audio corrected. The dialogue comes out of the left and right speakers.

And to foxeng, thanks for the work you do at WFXB. The picture quality and audio is always exceptional.

First, I don't work at WFXB. Sorry! But all accolades are accepted, earned or not!

Second, I just told the new chief about 3.3 and he says he thinks he knows what the issue is and he will look at it when we gets there.

Hey Foxeng,

If you can pass along to your friend that anytime it rains, the COZI TV 3.3 freezes and goes out like a Directv rain fade, that would be great as well. I don't know if it is a poor aim on a dish or just a small dish or what would cause it... It only happens when it rains down there near the tower.

Maybe it was WSFX digital conversion/buildout you were Involved in? I was thinking you were involved with WFXB's digital conversion or in some fashion. I'm old and I guess my memory is getting things confuse. That was years ago.

And thank you for lead in the new chief engineer about 3.3's situation.

bdfox18doe works out of Charlotte and worked on WFXB. That might be who you're thinking of.
