As expected... This morning Cincinnati lost the last over the air 24 hour weather channel. WCPO 9 removed their Radar channel on 9.2 and replaced it "Escape", a channel aimed at women age 18-34 with a full schedule of what the TV show South Park calls "Murder Porn". Right now it's broadcasting at 4x3 480i standard definition.
Channel 9.3 became "LAFF" as expected. Live Well Network ceased operations on schedule. LAFF is a channel dedicated to comedy. The schedule has such "classics" as Life Goes On, Drew Carey Show and Spin City. It also features plenty of comedy movies. Channel 9 is broadcasting this channel in 9x16 "stretch-o-matic" standard definition ensuring I will never watch it.


I'm not impressed by the programming lineup on either channel so far. The picture quality is not as good as MeTV on either 9.2 or 9.3. Looks like they reduced the bit rate on both subs. If that's the case they could put the weather radar on back on Ch 9.4.

Being a Daytonian myself, I can tell you it's true.

WSTR 64 is off the air. Looks like they have been down since 8 pm. Time Warner Cable feed is OK

Looks similar to what happened to WLWT a few months ago. Hopefully they won't be down for a week. I guess they could try to squeeze them in on sister station WKRC-DT although it would have to be 480i SD.

We apologize to our over-the-air viewers... We're experiencing a problem with a transmission line at our transmitter. Our engineers are working on it but had to temporarily take the broadcast signal off the air. We hope to be back as soon as possible.

I'm getting a weaker than usual signal on WSTR 64 as of this evening. It appears they are running low power.

Its weaker for me also. My singnal strength is usally in the uper 70's to low 80's but now its in the low 60's. So Ithink you may be right. Maybe this might be a temp fix till the fix it fully.

That's what they posted under the comments section on Facebook. Looks like they are testing the new transmission line at low power for now.

Anyone know where I can find a store that carries Channel Master products near Cincinnati? I need to purchase a 10 foot mast but would rather not pay to have it shipped. Home Depot, according to their website, does not offer in store pickup. Cost to ship is too expensive. Want to walk into a store and drive home with it.

Have you tried your local Radio Shack stores? According to their website they have them in stock at several outlets.

In the Cincy area? Just did a check online again. Got the search feature to work right this time. It does look like some area stores have them in stock.

I'm surprised they're not more expensive being Radio Shack.

Whoever bought them out is keeping some of the stores open and apparently some of the product lines intact.
