Same tower as WWTD-LD
WRZB-LD
15 kW (supposedly, though its signal sure doesn't act like it)

None are high definition at this time

OTA installer recommendations in DMV area

Very hard to find, any recommendations for antenna installers and servicemen.

Thanks

You got to be nuts; you want me to pay to watch commercials?

On or after September 30, 2017, USA will remove Bounce TV (ch. 459) and The Justice Network (ch 461) programming from Fios TV and the channels will be removed from the lineup.

My OTA data service "Schedules Direct" shows no programming data after 30 Sept. for those channels.

They must be making way for WJAL "Family 68".

Yep, 9-2 (Bounce) and 9-3 (Justice) are no longer to be found.

The answer is that WVPT in Staunton got moved from 11 to 12, and WVPT is currently co-channel with WBAL; in the repacking process, the FCC permitted existing short-spacings (or short-spacing equivalents) to continue, but did not create new ones. As such, WJZ and WVPT cannot be co-channel, so WJZ couldn't move to 12. WBAL had to be swapped to 12 to maintain the short-spacing with WVPT, and WJZ got dropped on the now-more open channel 11.

If I've lost you, I can try again.

Someone at dcrtv.com posted:
WUSA's subchannels are not "down". They have changed though. WUSA is now channel sharing with WJAL. WJAL is the only subchannel but the PSIP data identifies it as 68.1. Bounce is now a subchannel of WFDC. I am not sure of justice is currently being broadcast in the area. Perhaps someone else knows. This is all part of the great repack experiment. enjoy.

So, 14-4 is now Bounce, not Escape (the onscreen bug says Bounce, but the ID still says Escape).
68.1 shows LATV a Latin-oriented station in English and Spanish. I don't know if it's new or was always there before. No clue where Justice is, if it still exists.

68.1 is new to the DC area. They use to be based in Hagerstown but sold to the FCC and got a partner in WUSA to carry them.

They use to claim "family friendly" program but other than some religious stuff and movies they carried stuff like Jerry and Maury during the day and the Seth McFarland "crapfest" (IMO) at night (Family Guy, American Dad, Cleveland show)

zap2it still shows most of the old schedule as posted below

On the Wizards website they have renamed CSN Mid Atlantic NBCSWA. Must stand for NBC Sports Washington. Also, did a rescan and get 9-1 and 68-1 but skipped 14.

And 14-4 is missing its PSIP for some reason. If it doesn't appear by tomorrow, I'll write a note to my friend at Univision.

20/5 etc

So with 20 being assimilated by 5, has there been any word on which subchannels will be kept/dumped?
(I'm interested in 20.3 for Star Trek, and 20.1 for X-Files.)

From Wikipedia:
On August 31, 2017, it was announced that WDCW had entered into a channel sharing agreement with Univision owned-and-operated station WFDC-DT.

Funny that WUSA VHF 9 would drop two subchannels to make room for WJAL which is in 480i. They may be negotiating to see who will accept the most favorable terms when 5.1 consolidates with 20.1, and 14.1 consolidates with 50.1. That leaves, by my count, nine 480i subchannels in need of bandwidth. I'm guessing that MeTV and Heroes & Icons are the most valuable of those channels, but who knows?

With its relocation to Washington, DC on a shared, full power transmitter, does WJAL acquire any must-carry rights or privileges that it didn't have and wouldn't have had as a low powered station?

WJAL was never a low-power station. You must be speaking of WMDO.
