They both transmit from Madmere Mountain in Hamden, CT.
If I was you I would hope they don't...subchannels are starting to become the compression nightmare that cable viewers have to endure! WPXG-TV in Concord has 6 channels on their band and you can see the HD channel suffering from it!

I struggle to receive channel 8 of New Haven over the air, as they are the only commercial VHF broadcaster left in Hartford/New Haven. That's even when I used an older indoor TV antenna with the two telescoping rods. Sister station channel 59 barely ever comes in either.

WHPX-TV (ION) channel 26 of New London is like most other ION stations: 1 to 6 with QVC and HSN on channel 26-5 and 26-6.

Yeah, I like the shows ION broadcast, but I can definitely see compression on their HD channels...I removed the stupid HSN and QVC channels from my TV's, but also realize it pays their bills I'm sure! Just amazing that in this day and age of Amazon that shopping TV is still around!

And the audio issue on WFXT Fox 25 is back again. Call the engineering guy again.

WLVI won't technically be a sub channel of WHDH, at least not when it comes to channel number. It will use some of the WHDH spectrum, but will still map to 56-1.
