Our only analog class A station, channel 4 UniMas, is now off the air because of the FCC mandated shutoff of analog class A stations. 3 non class A low power stations are still merrily putting out analog.

How can we say "the digital transition is complete" when thousands of low power stations are still broadcasting in analog?

Thanks for pointing that out. It is in clear QAM on Bright House also. I hadn't noticed that Grit is also in clear QAM. Still no World Channel on Bright House.


I really wish Buzzr would come to Bakersfield! I still wish The Cool Tv would return!


Is FOX no longer using their "splicer" system? I thought the splicer system only permitted one subchannel.

How can we say "the digital transition is complete" when thousands of low power stations are still broadcasting in analog?
