WNYW moves to 27
WWOR moves to 25

Both around August, 2019. At that time, you'll need to rescan.

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.

Question

Trip,

Why is WHYY-TV Wilmington (Philadelphia) moving from RF12 to RF13 while WNET Newark (New York) is moving from RF13 to RF12?

Couldn't each PBS affiliate have remained where they are now?

To prevent interference. There were a handful of stations that accepted money to move from UHF to high-VHF. To make them fit, it was necessary to reshuffle a number of high-VHF stations going right up the east coast from Florida to Canada.

Presuming the NYC Metropolitan Television Alliance will continue to use a combiner antenna for the VHF-Hi stations as they presently do, is there any concern about post-repacking interference between stations WPIX (RF11) and WNET (RF12)? As things currently exist, WPIX sometimes presents a reception challenge to even the most knowledgeable and patient OTA viewer....

Shouldn't be. Plenty of markets have adjacent channels.

I agree WPIX is so frustrating. Why did WPIX not move to UHF and that useless WWOR repeat cop network move to VHF RF-11.
