Probably no great loss, but I am unable to pick that station up here in Creve Coeur. I guess my roof top UHF yagi is simply overloading my tuners with the adjacent KSDK signal. Those guys should consider relocating to another frequency.

They already did, four years ago. They just haven't done it even though their permit to relocate to channel 19 was issued two years ago.

Good info. I guess the close proximity to KSDK with such low power is the root cause. I have no clue what it takes to change channels at the transmitting end, but ch. 19 looks wide open. These guys better get on the stick if they want to have a prayer of any success.

I can't find the engineering statement anymore, but that was indeed the problem quoted for the displacement request (adjacent channel too powerful).

Well, that and channels people actually want to watch.

Anyone else notice a change in the picture (4x3 vs 16x9) on 9.3 & 9.4? Something has change, but I just can't quite figure out exactly what - the picture is now no longer in aspect unless I use one of the 'zoom' options.

Create and World both went to 16:9 SD on the satellite feed recently. If KETC hasn't adjusted their encoders to output the 16:9 flag, then the aspect ratio will be wrong.

I seldom view those channels so I had to take a look. You guys are correct. Both sub channels are displayed totally wrong and look like smartphone video shot vertically----squished video flanked with with large black bars on both sides. Do we live in a major market? Does anyone at the station look up occasionally?
