Very true---my good friend recently purchased a 56 inch plasma, but he only has Time Warner analog cable. I told him he would be able to get HD over the air (indoor antenna) or through TW at no cost, but he wasn't interested. Finally, I took an indoor antenna to his house and practically forced him to rescan--we picked up 9 of 10 locals perfectly in HD. We then reconnected the cable and rescanned for QAMs.--We picked up all locals in HD as well as 7 or 8 cable HD channels ( which should be encoded), plus as all the subchannels carried by TW. My friend acknowledged how fantastic the picture was, but said he doubted he'd mess with it since he wouldn't be able to remember the HD channel numbers. I know, absolutely crazy, considering the new TV probably set him back at least $2000.

Doesn't help that the limited number of providers that do include PSIP data do a half-assed job of it. A good number of them are inconsistent from channel to channel in how the remap is configured. For example, Cox in Phoenix has most of the channels remap to their OTA equivalent, e.g. Fox on 10.1. However, the local independent remaps to 0.703. PBS HD is on 8.1, Create is on 8.2, but the World subchannel found on 8.3 OTA is on 0.88 on cable. The FCC has requirements that some cable systems must incude PSIP, but those requirements don't seem to be enforced, much less cover exactly how the channels are remapped.

Just one for the VHF file this time around.

WCPO wants to boost power from 19 kW to 28 kW.

For a second there I though you put KTTV going from 11 to 19. I keep dreaming that KABC 7 and KTTV 11 would move back to UHF (LA market).

Considering that none of the LA analog LP stations above 51 have moved yet, I'm wondering if anything new is even happening in 52-69, other than FLO, which isn't new. Most of the auctioned channels aren't being used (yet) despite the need for more UHF TV channels, as best as I can tell.

Yeah. I am still surprised I get channel 67 (HSN). I think I would rather have KTTV or KABC digital on UHF 67.

IMHO taking away 18 UHF channels from TV was more about politics than reality. Either 52 - 55 should of have been kept for TV or Land Mobile should be removed from channels 16 - 20.

I believe it was originally about deficit reduction, too, as well as paying for the converter box coupon program.

I agree that they may have taken a few too many channels out of circulation, given how tight things are in some parts of the country.

Washington has for years "anticipated" tens of billions of dollars accrued by the various auctions.

The coupons for boxes, the NYC 9/11 fund, the grant to Low-Power and translator stations and the fund for National alert and tsunami warnings - are all peanuts compared the billions already on the books for years and already spent!

From the VHF file:

WPBN is requesting to make channel 50 permanent as a 15 kW fill-in translator on the primary tower (not the current location), and move from channel 7 to channel 47, which is being abandoned by WFQX. It looks like they want to buy the channel 47 stuff from WFQX.

WWBT has requested to boost power from 6 kW to 26 kW.

I'm told they're running 9.8 kW out of the directional pattern. They have no authority to be doing so as far as I can tell, but I was told they were "testing" with it. The omni is supposed to be put up in the next month or so.

You and I must have been DXing at the same time. You managed to decode a frame of the low-VHF station from my area, and I managed to decode a frame of KCWX-DT 5 from your area this afternoon.

For a goodly while KCWX-DT-5 was not decoding with the antenna aimed n.e. (it resumed later) from what I assume was all the onslaught of other DT-5 stations coming in from that direction. The DTT901 "meter" was bouncing all over the place on them then. I would have to get a local on the most-populated low-VHF DT channel. http://www.qsl.net/wa5iyx/lovesavd.htm

Okay, let's see.

WNUV wants an experimental STA to try a non-synchronous DTS at 0.5 kW.

From the VHF file:

KTWU-11 in Topeka wants to boost from 25 kW to 38 kW.

The big news of the evening--WLS wants off of 7. I don't know what channel though. We'll know in about 6 hours.

Channel 44?

http://www.fcc.gov/fcc-bin/tvq?list=0&facid=181115

Do you have links to any of the supporting documents filed with their PRM? Those might be an interesting read!

Yep, channel 44. At 473.33 kW ND.

The paperwork has not shown up on the FCC site yet, since it's handled by hand and not electronically. It should be up within the next few days, and I will provide a link when it shows up.

As I recall, they were one of the stations with the highest number of complaints to the FCC's complaint line during the period of and immediately following the transition. A power boost is not an option due to spacing problems with WOOD-DT 7 and WMVS-DT 8.

So does that mean there is hope for the Los Angeles stations to move back to UHF (KTTV, KABC, KCAL or KCOP)? Please say yes. Please get my hopes up. It's ok to.

Thanks.

I doubt KTTV or KCOP move, since they have permits for massive power increases.

As for KABC or KCAL, I have no idea. There are channels available for them to move to if they want it, but I wouldn't bet on it.

Trip has given you a tool to figure that out at rabbitears.info. Click on markets, enter a call to search on, click on "Technical Data and Screencaps", then click on the (S) to start a channel search. The short answer in this case is:

not for all of them.

Hey, Trip (or anyone, but he would probably know best), answer me this possibly naive question...

In the analog era, the FCC had a set table of channel allocations for full-power stations. It was pretty sacrosanct, save for the occasional switch, swap. or drop-in.

Is there (or will there ever be) any similarly set allocation table for DTV? The impression I get from reading articles and FCC apps is that they're more or less making it up as they go along. In other words, it's not "here are the channels assigned to your market" but, rather, "well, tell us what you want and we'll see whether it can be shoehorned in or not."

I was wondering if they were perhaps waiting for things to settle (as they work out the obvious kinks in their previous conceptions of coverage/interference/spacing on DTV) and then might establish just which channels are available in which markets, maybe prior to lifting the freeze on new station apps? Or will they continue to play it on an ad hoc, case-by-case basis?

Yes, there is such a table. 47CFR73.622. http://edocket.access.gpo.gov/cfr_20...7cfr73.622.htm

That's what my channel change page tracks, petitions to amend that section of the rules.

And there are actual spacing rules too, which is what my Available Channel Search checks against, but the FCC allows existing stations to ignore those if they can prove with an interference study that less than 0.5% interference will result.

Looks to me like that table is quite out of date (almost 2 years old) -- it has the old pre-transition assignments (including out-of-core 52-69), but not their post-transition counterparts. (Example: Orlando shows 58, but not 26; Melbourne shows 20, but not 43, etc.) Is there a current table anywhere?
