The Sacramento station thread is very long, so I thought it best to start a new one just for LILs (with the Moderator's approval, of course).
The LILs came up yesterday, right on schedule. I first saw their carrier over the weekend (on 99 degrees. Network 11, transponder 26). It may have been on for sometime before that. Signal strength is awesome, compared to the SF spot beam (on 103 degrees, Network 14, Transponder 20).
Last week, I checked with a couple of Sacramento chief engineers, and they had no official word of the channel launch. When I mentioned this on the other thread, someone correctly responded that D* was planning to pick the HDs off the air, so the stations wouldn't need to do anything.
I haven't done much of an A/B comparison with the OTAs yet, but watching Alias last night, I couldn't see any difference - just an occasional minor breakup.
