So WLNY (virtual 55) is owned by CBS but carries CBS programming only on a secondary basis, having most of its programming just be syndicated shows? And its signal covers only Long Island and a small portion of Connecticut, the same portion of Connecticut that is at the heart of the dispute between WJLP and WFSB over whether WJLP can use Channel 3 as its virtual channel number?

Meanwhile, it's not clear for how long WZME will continue to serve the NYC market as a Me-TV affiliate.

Man, having so many markets (Connecticut, NYC, Jersey, Philadelphia) packed so close together makes for a lot of complications in assigning RF allocations and virtual channel numbers and deciding what slots the stations get on cable systems.

Until WJLP gains broad coverage (Satellite, TWC, CV, Comcast). Right now only FiOS is carrying it.

Any ideas as to why WCBS does not use 2.2 to carry alternate programming as other channels do?

Because cable and satellite systems do not carry CBS+ 2.2.

Is Ch 3.10 still on the air? I haven't been able to pick up even a hint of the station the past 2 days. Weird since it was usually very reliable for me.

yes is on the air I been experiencing lots of pixelation. METV signal wise is usually pegged using a insignia stb. windy conditions and heavy rain last night had something to do with it.

VHF Lo ?

I too have had this. Interestingly, the higher frequency stations are either clear or pixelated. I have an ideal reception situation for VHF 3, I have a roof antenna with VHF lo elements, aimed at NYC with a line of sight. I'm 40 or so miles up river, but the accident of geology means I have a direct view.

I get 3 with an 88% on the diagnostic screen, and it is never a problem to tune...yet, I get about twice an hour pixellation. I'm guessing there may be an airplane involved, as the space between them and me is also busy airspace.

Otherwise, between vintage Batman and 5-0, the DVR is busy ! I applaud the business model, and hope they get their channel 3 listing. Hey, none of any of this makes sense....

In Vienna we sit, in late night cafe. Straight Connection, on T.E.E.

Indeed, the moolah is a thing of which any self-respecting revenue seeking businessman is more than somewhat fond. And let it not be said that such a man should abandon VHF, even if he does have to nominally locate himself in Jersey upon completing so arduous an eastward expedition.

I was having some breaking up on the station last night, but to my surprise today not only is it coming in well on my Tivo, but my Samsung TV, which is on the same antenna with a splitter, is now receiving WJLP perfectly after not getting it in at all when I set things up. I wonder if they have done something to improve the quality of their signal?

BION, I had to "de-ice" my antenna around 5 PM last night. Here in Pleasantville we were right on the transition line most of the day. I would rain, then snow, then freezing rain, then sleet and so on all day long. It changed every 15 minutes. Around 5 PM I lost Channel 2 on 5 almost completely and Channel 4 and 7 would break up every now an then.

I live in a house with flat roofs, a lower and an upper. I can access the lower roof through the window in my study where I set right now and can reach the upper roof by means of a permanent ladder between the two levels. I looked out of the window in the study and saw that the antenna ( a big Winegard on a mast that is about eight feet above the upper roof) was covered by an icy slushy mixture about 1/4" to 1/2" thick. I got the extension pole brush that my wife uses to dust the upper portions of the eleven foot ceiling and walls in the main room of the house and went out to the upper roof and got most of the ice and slush off of the antenna. Reception was completely restored to its usual wonderful state.

It was a real good feeling to get the reception back by doing such a crazy thing. Many of my neighbors already think I am crazy by going OTA. I doubt if any of them saw my "di-icing" move last evening, but if they did I am sure they are now totally convinced that I have lost my mind.

Later today or tomorrow I will try to get my wife to take a picture of a reenactment of my antenna "de-icing" and post it.

From MeTv WJLP facbook page it states they won a federal court appeals maintaining their stay of VHF 3 / 3.10 ufn. The Dec 1 deadline is null now that WJLP will continue to transmit and remain on 3.

Since I can not receive WJLP using my indoor HDTV antenna, in the North Eastern, NJ area, I tried connecting my outdoor scanner and ham discone antenna to the TV.
After the channel search was able to get reception of WJLP along with WPIX-DT and WNET-DT which I could get reception of using my indoor HD antenna.
The specs for the antenna say 25-1300MHz coverage.

Yes great news. By the way WJLP continues to show up on my Samsung TV and my Tivo, so much the better.
