Nothing about Centurylink PrismTV (their version of Uverse) not having WUCF at all in SD or HD, etc, etc, etc.


I would love to see the FCC pull this license for failure to serve the public interest as a public trustee.

Let Daystar try to compete for the non-commercial assignment alongside of locals like Valencia and UCF. In that case, UCF has a very good chance of taking the license.

At that point, WMFE could either sell the transmitter to UCF at fire-sale prices or just eat the loss. Since UCF is the second largest school in the state, and does not hold a television license, like the remaining top state schools, they would clearly have a good chance of winning.

It's WSWF-LD 10, it's already airing RTV programming.

Reception hint: turn your antenna towards the Lovelace Gas Service tower in East Orlando on SR 50. Perfect reception in Lake Mary with an RS-VU190XR antenna.

Er, that's news to me. And I work for RTV.

If that is the case, and I can find no evidence to support it so far, looks like a C&D needs to go out...

Actually watching WSWF-LP, It is not RTV, it appears to be a mix of A1 programming and public domain programs (probably sourced from a DVD bargain bin at Walmart) as an episode of the original Dragnet came on at 9:55 PM.

They are branded as WSWF Orlando "Classic TV" in a station ID graphic.

I know it was submitted, but doesn't seem to have been published anywhere yet for some reason. I'm seeking permission to post the press release directly here, and will do so as soon as I have that permission.

WMFE is non-commercial, so not them. But yes, the sale to Daystar was canceled. Here's hoping it can wind up in the hands of someone like WBCC.

A) not the right forum

B) TVfool results please http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=29

C) if you do indeed live in Orlando don't use an amp. Your signals are probably too strong

D)It would help if you used the actual channels or the call signs. I don't see the channels you are talking about. Channel 26 is CBS.

You're new no biggie. The mods will probably move it to the correct forum in a bit any ways.

Best way to know is to remove it. Won't know until you give me the TVfool info I asked for. If you live in Orlando then probably yes. Do you know the model number of your antenna?

Done, but only because I saw it by accident. Feel free to use the Report Post button for stuff like this. Thanks.

you can't use an amp for some stations and not others. You'd have to use it for all or none. And the other stations will most likely be overloaded with an amp. Anyway once he posts his TVFool report we'll get a better picture of what he is dealing with.

That gain is meaningless. It's including the amp which is not how gain works. If you could give me the exact model number we can see if you can remove the amp.

No it doesn't help. I don't need the coordinates of the station tower and all that other stuff. A TVFool report will give me what I am looking for.

I'm asking you to go the link I posted. Enter your information. Copy the URL and post that URL here. Also are you actually pointing the antenna at station since it's not in the same direction as the other stations in Orlando?

And it seems you defiantly don't need an amplified antenna.
