Surprised to learn that KVFW/38 is again broadcasting an ATSC signal. I'd heard that the NY Spectrum Holding Co. was gathering LPTV licenses for an experimental service (similar to the now-defunct MediaFLO), so I'd basically just quit checking RF 38. Guess that idea hasn't worked out for them so far, and they decided to put their bandwidth up for lease like most of the other LPTVs.

BTW, their signal is a real powerhouse, isn't it? Keeps dropping out here in S. Garland.

Sorry, but I preferred to wait on Eddie Barker on KRLD TV for my news. I do remember waiting on my front porch in NE Dallas on Monday afternoons so I could peruse the NFL stats and look forward to seeing "Dallas" at the top of the NFL Eastern Division standings.

Turned on my DTVPal DVR this morning and it had added KVFW-LD 38.1 overnight. But when I try to tune to it, "0". Once in a while the signal will come up and show color bars. Looks like I have my pluge grayscale and colors about right.

Same here. Every once in a while it will just barely lock in. All other LPTVs are OK, so I get the feeling KVFW isn't operating at a full 15 kW.

BTW, you can find more reliable color bars at KPFW/18.4.

Breaking News: K31GL has added 31.2 back. Still a complete waste of bandwidth, er, simulcast of 31.3.

I mentioned earlier that Bounce was to move from KDFI 27-3 to KUVN 23-2 sometime next year. Could it be that Bounce will move by year's end? A snapshot of the TitanTV app shows 2 Bounces: the new home on KUVN and the old home on KDFI. (See attached photo; hope it works, because I used my iPad for screenshot capture and upload.)

I know it's not August yet (as of posting), but after seeing 23-2 show up on TitanTV, I tuned in to KUVN and KSTR, hoping the new channels will show up, but alas, not yet. (Maybe tomorrow or within the next 2 weeks?)

Either way, we antenna people need to be on the lookout for the new home of Bounce, Escape (these two on KUVN) and Grit (this one on KSTR)!
