I don't get any Raleigh area channels. I have the antenna installed at 30 ft, and no signal for WTVD. I get a ton of noise on 11 analog. I think 10 and 12 are too much power. 9 and 12 are coming in strong, even with the antenna sideways.

this will probably kill reception for WTVD in the local( Duplin/Onslow/Lenior) area. I hope the moves improve my reception for WRAL and WRAZ since I have read that the Channel Master CM-4228 has problems with channels over RF40. These are probably the only channels I have issues with currently. Hopefully no issues with any other channels, although i'm curious if it will affect 22 and 28 which are two of my best on RF 27 and 28.

Why? WTVD on 9 and WCTI on 10 will be just like today where WTVD is on 11 and WCTI is on 12.

There is no reception of WTVD in Onslow to speak of, a big "IF" could be on the tip of the county, but you would need to have an extreme setup, and I doubt anyone is doing that.

Pink, forget it, Blue, doubtful, but maybe if lucky you might get a blip part of the time.

I've heard lots of people speak of problems tuning WNCT 9 which broadcast on RF 10. I just think with WTVD being further away it will be harder to pull RF 9

I get it good here on the outer edge of the Duplin/Onslow line.

Does anyone know what channel WNCT is moving to? I hope WITN stays put, they have a great signal at my location.

It won't be 9 or 10, so I would guess 8, 11 or 12. Seems like WFXI will go away. I hope that's all... Who knows? Will ION go away?

Looks like WITN is moving too, going to 34 and WCTI and WNCT are swapping channels. Lots of info on the link below.

The signal for FOX is going to suck, especially for those in the north, and those in Carteret. I expected they would improve the Trenton signal, unless they are planning to keep WFXI... WNCN is going on 8. The ION stations will stay on, I also see.

Is there any chance the signal for WYDO could be improved? It seems doubtful from the map I saw on your site. The signal is really tightly squeezed. Some people may not be happy...

In the second priority filing window, which is some months away, WYDO could expand its facility or seek an alternate channel. We'll have to see what they decide to do, if anything.

I would hope either WYDO air WAVY requests a move. The current allocation will be a nightmare for WYDO in Martin, Washington, and Bertie Counties.

What's going on with TV 41? Why do they keep flipping channels on and off? Antenna TV comes and goes like every week... Hero and Icons are about the same.

Right now, It's

41.1 Heartland
41.2 COZE
41.3 Retro TV
41.4 Antenna TV

No. At one time I think Antenna TV was, but not anymore... Cable has added Get TV, Bounce, and Decades though.

Sinclair is arguably worse than Nexstar. At least Nexstar doesn't openly display a bias (unless the story is about the CEO).

RIP ENC news. I guess we still have WITN.

They are ALL biased, and way to the left. The worst is WRAL. They are even worse than WTVD. I agree about Sinclair being worse than Nexstar too...

Amen about WRAL and I used to be a RAL fan! Not anymore, though they're weather team is excellent. I stick with WITN these days.

Sinclair is very biased toward the right.

I pretty much only watch WRAL. Occasionally WTVD.

As bad as our local stations already are I can't imagine how much worse it can get. Sinclair outsourced news in an Ohio market recently, a station out of Indiana produces WNWO's news but it is presented as if its local. I would not be surprised to see Nexstar merge some of WNCN and WNCT's operations.

I was also thinking about the possibility of them just using one newsroom and covering both viewing areas out of there... It wouldn't shock me.

I just want the news, not a propaganda show of what some station owners opinions are. Once they have uncloaked, there is no going back. lol

I got WTVD this morning, for the first time with the Stellar Labs VHF, but it didn't last but a half hour or so. I used to get it like that when I had the rotor on my UHF. At the same time I also had WRAL even though my antenna is aimed southwest. I took off the VHF trap on my RCA preamp a few days ago. I'm not sure if that helped, but it seems to have. I may try taking the tilt off the antenna this weekend, and changing the aim just a bit as I have it pointing a little off to the west. If anything changes I'll update.
