Or if they move to VHF-Low. I have no knowledge either way from ETV or WSPA. I say that because I know of a station in VA that is moving from UHF to channel 2. If the money is right . . .

Is moving to UHF even an option? Wouldn't that kind of defeat the purpose of the auction? My understanding was stations could take $$ to be repacked, more $$$ to move to VHF, or even more $$$$ to move to VHF-Low if they were already VHF-High?

If it's their choice to move yes. But if they did move (and we don't know what's happening, if anything) it might not be by choice. The FCC can and is moving stations to different channels and changing power levels whether the stations want it or not.

As part of the auction, no, it is/was not an option. Stations could stay in the same band or move down (for $$) but not up.

Now, after the repack terrain shakes out, the station may APPLY to move to UHF provided that 1) the FCC opens such a window for filing and 2) there's an available channel identified for them to relocate to.

Given that they had several years post-transition to elect such a move and they didn't bother, the odds of them caring enough now or in the near future to make such an effort post-repack would seem to be unlikely.

ATSC3.0 holds promise for those on VHF-High at least and a fighting chance on VHF-Low.

WGTA switched it's programming today.

32.1 ME-TV
32.2 Heroes & Icons
32.3 Decades
32.4 Movies!

Their main channel is carried by Northland cable in Oconee/Pickens. I wonder how long itwill take for WSPA to notice and complain about ME-TV being on there.

WSPA own them (rather they share ownership). Why would they complain?I WAS WRONG IN THIS COMMENT ... PLEASE DISREGARD!

WSPA doesn't own them anymore and hasn't since fall 2008. The University of Georgia owned for a while. Now Marquee Broadcasting owns them. You'll have to trust me on that. I worked there until 2010.
