At my brother's house in Palm Bay, I have hooked up for him a UHF/VHF antenna pointed towards the Orlando stations, and a UHF antenna pointed towards West Palm. They are combined and amped for 3 TV's. With this he's able to get all of the Orlando stations and in addition, West Palm stations WPBF 25 & WTVX 34 along with their respective sub channels at good to excellent levels.

The FCC Broadcast Television spectrum incentive auction winning bids are in. According to this file here in Orlando only WACX 55 (RF 40) and WTGL 45 (RF 46) are listed. WACX apparently is going to move to a high VHF channel which they have up to 39 months from today to do so. And WTGL is going off the air which will happen up to 90 days after they receive their money.

WTGL is flagged as intending to channel share with another station that is not going off the air. We don't yet know if that will turn into an actual agreement to do so or who with.

Thanks for the update. Kind 'a thought that WTGL was making good money with all that pay for play that they run. Didn't think that they would just take the money and run. However depending on what station they're going to share, they may not be able to bring their sub channels along for the move.

Since they are a Full Power station, I suspect they will share with a LP station, which is probably the one that will not be able to bring any sub-channels. Though that will limit how many Sub-channels they have at least until the 3.0 comes. Of course I could be that word that can never be spoken

I see it's all the Full Power and Class A Low Power station, what about the rest of the LP Stations? When should we find out if they have room. I assume the new channel positions are the Virtual channel and not the physical channel is there a way to know what the physical channel will be

The channel listings on the left side are the new RF (physical) channel location and the current channel location just to the right. I would like to think the virtual channels would remain the same, just the RF assignment would change. Looks like (full power wise) WESH, WKMG, WRDQ, and WEFS will not be moving at all.

LPTV stations were not protected in the process, by law. They will file for their own new channels, as necessary, later in the process.

Frank is correct about the channel numbers. Virtual channels will be unchanged.

Thanks it can be confusing since both numbers listed WESH 2 on 11 when it is displayed on 2, Likewise WRCF is displayed on 29 not 35, so I wasn't sure if it would still be on 29 or 16.

I live by Universal Studios and never knew this station existed. Even though I'm only a few miles away from them I cannot pick them up due to the oddball pattern they have. They have 7 streams too. I thought 6 was the max.
In other news, what's the deal with WOTF 43.3 still running Escape which is also on WFTV 9.3. There has got to be something else they could run, isn't there?

Yeah I know that seems unusual but looking at their website Escape has 8 cities where there are 2 affiliates. We have a number of Networks either missing or on stations very few can pick up Justice Network being one we are missing

WANN in Atlanta has even more than that

I tried punching in 28 just for grins and got nothing. Of course being in Melbourne, even with an outdoor antenna up as high as it can go we're lucky to pick up WESH on good days .

I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.
