Well fortunately I can get RF13 in HD digital with no problem. But it does take a bit of work with the proper antenna and amplifier. And apparently some folks have difficulty because it requires a proper balance with the amp to avoid overload and interference. And 13 does need a bit of amplification, but 7, 62, 4 and others do not, and amplifying these signals too much will cause problems. So you may need a filter or attenuator, and separate UHF and VHF antennas connected with a UVSJ may be the best solution. And a good low noise, medium power inline amp is the Winegard LNA-100 or the Alphaline version sold at Sears/Kmart for $39. Or a Channel Master distribution amp.

GOOD NEWS!

I've found out from one of my friends. Greenville, SC FINALLY has DIVERSTY in subchannel offerings!
Bounce is now on 40.3 (replacing Zuus Country).

tylerSC,


Well I've wrote a protest letter to WYFF 4 on why they airing Kelly Ripa's LIVE! at 9am (which forced to delay the 3rd hour to 10am) instead of Today Show's 4th hour with Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb live at 10am, I haven't heard a reply from them yet.


If I owned a commercial Independent Station in this market I would carry KLG and Hoda's 4th hour of Today Show in lieu of WYFF-TV with NBC's permission. What do you think?


When WMYA was indie WAXA in the 1980s, they carried NBC's Super Password in lieu of WYFF-TV.

Why do you have such a lady boner about stupid KLG/HK show? Seriously you post about it CONSTANTLY!
Because I'm sure your "protest" letter is gonna make them change their mind.

I agree with SpencerKarter that WYFF-4 should air the 4th hour of the Today Show, with KLG and Hoda. Instead they tape delay the 3rd hour and preempt the 4th. I am fortunate to be able to view it out of market from WCNC in Charlotte which does not preempt NBC. While I understand WYFF chooses to air Kelly and Michael at 9am, rather than the typical ABC affiliate, I would rather see them preempt the 3rd hour of Today rather than the 4th.

They should move K&M to either WLOS, WHNS, or WYCW. I do disagree with your latter sentence, I wanted to see TODAY Show live in its entirety on WYFF 4. I still haven't heard from them yet.


I hated it when WYFF takes advice from their sister station in Crummy Baltimore (WBAL-TV) to preempt KLG & Hoda.


BTW unclehonkey is a KLG and Hoda-hater.

no
I just don't feel that my mission in life is to post in pretty much every thread how a local TV station doesn't carry a particular show. Obviously the station realizes they can get more of an audience showing a different show than what is currently offered to them

Glad to see Jimmy Swaggart is now on Charter in HD on 801. SBN is also available OTA on 16.3 and 55.3 but SD.
