Lost two more analog TV signals as channels 23 (WAVY simulcast) and 35 (WAVY simulcast) are now digital - doing NBC and BounceTV on the dot 2's... Channel 51, which was doing religious programming, now just has a static image of " *** VIDEO TROUBLE *** " Their main channel went digital a month ago...

I've never understood the reason for WAVY's simulcast. They got a nice non-DA signal from the Driver antenna farm. Do they really need these low power signals to supplement what's already well-covered?

Need? I really doubt it. Must be reason they are keeping these signals. They are NOT free to run...

That or spectrum. FCC is considering repacking the TV channels (above 31???). This keeps WAVY/WVBT with some options in the future...
