Thanks for your help. It came back tonight on its own, but it was really weird because it's never happened before.

It wasn't just the Convention, because without PBS, I might as well toss my TV out.

We've had 10 days of extremely hot weather, even extreme for NY. Can that interfere with signals? And , BTW, are the antennas now on the new World Trade Center?

WNET has the most unreliable OTA signal as stations I either always get or don't except for WNET . Don't rely on it working for recordings. When watching a Capital 4th which I did not miss much as it was mostly pre recorded material it kept breaking up into a black screen on my TiVo Roamio.

No, not the current broadcasting antennas.

Just about all of them are on the ESB (Empire State Building). A few are at broadcast locations scattered around NJ and LI.

There are a number websites that will show you the broadcast locations and give coordinates from your viewing location. Here is just one of them.

This is a 30-minute program which is looped at 00:00:00 and 00:30:00. Programming is a digitally-fed simulcast of FM stations WKMK (106.3 FM) Eatontown and WTHJ (106.5 FM) Bass River Township.

WJLP-DT12 (RF 3-12/Virtual 33-12) transmits a stereo audio-only stream. PSIP TVCT displays the channel name as B985 on virtual channel 33-12. Language is English.

Thumbs up WJLP Eliminates Paid Programming Effective September 1, 2016

Effective September 1, 2016, WJLP Middletown Township will eliminate Paid Programming from the schedule of it's primary stream. While there is some discrepancy regarding whether this extends to the 8 - 9AM hour due to a contradiction between the announcement by WJLP and online TV listings, this effectively clears the national MeTV lineup in the New York City metropolitan area during all dayparts.

The lone exception of this is late Saturday nights/early Sunday mornings from 4 - 5AM during which time WJLP will continue to air "Haven" in place of MeTV's "Gomer Pyle, USMC" 2x airing.

Noticed a couple of new stations: 26.5 La Mega and 38.2 KVFM.

26.5 has music videos with a request line phone number based in Miami. The 4:3 downconvert is cutting off the logo on the lower right. No subchannels.

38.2 KVFM is full time infomercials and is ID-ing at top of hour as KVFW Fort Worth, TX. No subchannels.

At what time did you observe these stations, and can you still receive them?

If you cannot, this was likely e-skip, and if so you are a very lucky man because by your description you potentially received two Low-Power digitals from the Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas market. And had you been moments earlier, you may have been receiving television from Mexico.

KVFW-LD Fort Worth, TX., broadcasts on channel 38. Interestingly, it is licensed to New York Spectrum Holding Company, LLC. And the 26-5 "La Mega" station could be KODF-LD Britton, TX., channel 27, whose analog channel position was 26 that, at one point, aired "Mega TV"

Much more likely is that the company that owns both KVFW-LD and various New York LPTV stations (WNYX-LD, etc.) borrowed an encoder from/is airing the same programming as the Dallas station and forgot to change the settings on the equipment/the ID on the programming.

Makes sense Trip. Giacomo, yes I can still receive both channels although 26 La Mega has a frozen picture and no sound.

Antennas going up at 1 World Trade

Looks like May 2017 WNBC, WCBS WNET and WNJU could be the earliest these channels start broadcasting from 1 World Trade Center.

Would this change cause any short spacing issues with other markets? Also, I thought after the WTC disaster, they weren't going to be putting any transmitters back there again?

It's FM that has the big short-spacing issue. TV stations aren't licensed based on distance separations or contour protections, so it's somewhat easier for them to move around.
