Has anyone in metro Atlanta picked up WGTA digital 24 virtual 32 ? It was recently changed from WUGA. It now shows H&I (Heroes & Icons) 32.1 as well as Decades 32.2, and Movies! 32.3. I live around Peachtree City and I can occasionally pick it up with an attic antenna. The transmitter is located in Toccoa. WUGA was on Dish but is now dark, even tho the guide is correct with H&I programming. I emailed the station mgr and she said they are laying new cable and will be available on Dish soon.

I get 32-1-32-10 in Decatur with my indoor antenna. It's been there since I first scanned a few weeks back. I can't say that I've ever sat and watched anything from any of those channels, but there are a couple with potential. I've noticed I don't get any guide info whatsoever on those channels, not even the current program.

Most likely you are picking up WANN on virtual channel 32 (real channel 29). Their tower is located over at Briarcliff Rd at Clifton Rd in Atlanta. I can receive them in Acworth in the winter but this time of year I can't get them at all because of all the leaves on the trees. With all those video streams packed on to one channel, they have some lousy picture quality.

I have not tried picking it up in Acworth (too much trouble to turn the antenna around to point in that direction). I already get Decades and Movies! from Atlanta stations. Looks like Heroes & Icons has a few old shows that I would watch...maybe one of the full power Atlanta stations will pick them up as a sub-channel...WPCH on virtual 17.1 has not jumped on the sub-channel bandwagon yet...I wonder why not?

My Titan Tv Guide has 24.1 listed so I added it to my line-up a couple of weeks ago.


The confusion was over at wiki where Heroes & Icons was listed as 32.1 not 24.1 for Toccoa-Athens.


WPCH has it's hooks in the group of stations on 26.


I pick up at times 69 channels.
My location is 1 mile S.W. of North DeKalb Mall.
I use a Channel Master CM-4228 8 Bay 32 Element Antenna.
It's 41"x 33".

It's definitely WANN for me. I believe it's 10 channels starting with televised biz talk radio squeezed back into a scrolling TV guide. There are about three channels that show movies in color, one shopping channel, one Spanish channel, and the rest show super oldies b/w shows and movies of dubious quality. With my antenna web flat wave indoor antenna, I pick up over 80 channels. I am one mile due east of Decatur Square. I have the antenna positioned where it picks up ION (Qubo for the kids) cleanly with no interference. I do get interference on some of the stronger stations from cars and flight traffic, but overall I'm pretty happy with this simple low cost set up.

WOW! I can't believe you can get Athens/Toccoa stations down in Peachtree City!!! That is some GREAT reception!! I'm around Fairburn and can barely catch a whiff of it with a rooftop antenna.

And for the record, WPCH (channel 17) has *NOTHING* to do with WTBS 26 which is owned by Prism Broadcasting who also own WANN 32.

Also for the record, WANN crams TWENTY sub-channels into its signal! Y'all are all forgetting the 10 audio only radio channels on 32.11 through 32.20.

Yeah its hit or miss...usually in the mornings. I set my personal best of long distance reception by pulling in WYFF Greenville SC. The transmitter is actually near the SC/NC border. It is 200 miles from that point to my house.

Yeah, well if they had to depend on me to climb the tower and fix the channel 69 TV antenna, y'all would be waiting a looooooong time for a picture...

Yes. Both channels appear to be the same broadcast. Spanish language content.

32.2 has been missing for a several days now where it says "no signal" on the screen. It's done this several times in the past.

Antenna for sale

I have several television antennas for sale in the Atlanta area. Two ChannelMaster 4228s (original 8 bay model). One Televes DAT-75 (Yagi). One antenna custom made (Yagi) for channel 11 (NBC WXIA) which also receives quite well channel 8 (PBS). Will consider any price for any of them (individually or as a group). Buyer can pick them up - will not ship (situated in Cumming, GA).

Tripp, channel 9.1 is identified as LMM and is showing La Mega Mundial. 9.2 is identified as Shop and shows infomercials. Neither have an onscreen program guide and both broadcast on RF 9 as well. Assume that's the WEQT-LD you mentioned?

Haven't been able to pull in 12 yet. Getting some faint signal on 15 too but not sure what it is yet.

Thanks, sounds right.

15 could be either WRBL Columbus or WGGD-LD Gainesville.

Quick survey for those of you with attic installs. What type of antenna are you using? How is your reception? What part of town are you located? Thanks.

I have the Channel Master 4228 8 bay with pre amp in the attic with a rotor. I live about 5 miles S/W of Peachtree City. Reception is good for 95 % of all Atlanta chs. Can get the low power ones when leaves fall off the trees and other times when conditions are right. I can get some Columbus and Macon chs too.

When the video came out, I built a couple of these to assist a FM dipole, locating them empirically in both the horizontal and vertical planes until this year when removing the dipole solved a new problem with chl 8:

I've but quite a few of these for neighbors, friends, installing them in various locations including porches and all but one in Douglasville was pleased, though adding a reflector solved his problems.

I've experimented with reflectors, but overall they created more problems than they solved and copper and alum. wire made no obvious difference, though didn't try them in a fringe area, so maybe worthwhile for some folks.

A surge of tree grow this past year is now causing me enough problems to a greater or lesser extent with all the major chls that fiddling with positioning didn't help, so plan to get a new rotor, mast to reinstall my ancient, big AM/FM antenna on the roof and hope this solves the tree problem for good.

I imagine PDK's helo, etc., air traffic will still be a problem, but hopefully less so.

Anyone know if I'll have to add a HD antenna to it?

I'm about 15-18 miles north of the tv towers and i'm using a RCA ANT751R in my attic. I get near perfect signal on all of the major channels except for channel 8. The low power stations (26 and 32) are spotty. I wonder if upgrading to the Channel Master 4228HD will help me bring in the low power stations any better or if it's wasted effort (and money).

I live about 1 mile south of North DeKalb Mall.


I have had the CM 4228 on my back brick wall for 2 years. Amazon buy 7-18-2013.


I picked up 81 channels recently. I have a Samsung and LG hooked up to it.
Had a tree hit the house last year it Barely brushed by the CM. I have 2 sections high of
scaffolding with-in a foot of the CM and it still picked up all those channels!


The Samsung picks up Ch.8 better than the LG.
