Ok, I have been meaning to post for awhile now. I live in Starkville and have an indoor HD rabbit ear antenna from Radio Shack. The ONLY digital channels I can or ever have been able to pick up are:
4-1 (720p, WCBI Digital/HD). My HDTV labels it as MyMS
4-2 (480i, MyMS)
4-3 (480i, CW)
I have seen the letter from WKDH-45 that was sent out 11/1/06 that it will "begin broadcasting with a digital signal on TV channel 45" in December broadcasting from Woodland, 417m tall tower, with max. effective radiated power of 537 kV (from Walter Spain).
Does that mean it will be on 45-1 ? (Noobie question), if it isn't a channel #-# then it is not digital? That is, 12-1 = digital; 12 = not digital?
Anyway I called Walter the other day and he said that it would be up the first few weeks of December, and he seemed anxious to get it running asap. It would also be transmitting HD (ABC-HD). I asked him about other local channels and he said that WLOV-FOX Digital/HD should be up in Feb. 2007 (not sure what that means since others say it is already broadcasting, albeit intermittantly). By the way, on what channel are ppl picking up WLOV-HD OTA (over the air)? 13-1? 13? Something else? He also said that WTVA-NBC Digital/HD would be online in the summer of 2007.
When I moved back to Starkville in May, 2005 I was told that PBS is broadcasting in HD...channel 2, with the tower just down the road in Ackerman. I have never been able to receive any digital/HD on 2-1, 2-2, 2-3, etc.. if it is available where would I find it?
What other channels are people being able to pick up in the area?
Thanks for any answers.
