That's what I thought lower channels take less power to reach the same area in theory. Thanks for clarification. It seems currently most 1000kw stations may be somewhere above RF20, but I am not...

I hope they can keep a translator for WSOC/WAXN on Crowders Mountain because 9 and 64 do not reach as far to the west as the Dallas signals, and if WSOC and WAXN main signals are going to be lower...

Is the lower power level for WSOC expected to maintain the same coverage area? I do not understand why they would be lower power unless a lower UHF channel will by design reach a further area than...

9 is on 34 and 18 is 27. So they should not have to move unless they need to clear more space for other stations moving. Not sure how all this is negotiated or decided. Apparently FCC will eventually...

With the FCC repack, I wonder where WSB will move, as 39 will have to be vacated. Apparently Cox is waiting on the FCC to announce any changes which may be coming at the end of March. If they move to...

As stated, all channels above 36 will have to move. It is unclear if any lower channels may move to make room. Apparently Cox is waiting on the FCC to announce WAXN, which may be the end of March....

16.1 is mainly religious programming and carries the new Jim Bakker program. But not quite the same without Tammy Faye. And 16.3 has Jimmy Swaggart still going strong. Good gospel music.

I don't understand the need for WBGU to move from 27 to 22. I thought most of the stations required to move were above 36, so it seems like WBGU would have remained on 27. Unless some other station...

Is the FCC allowing the stations to announce any changes first? And if any other stations may be moving, will they be announcing soon also, or does this decision vary for each individual station?

Will be interested to see what these plans are. As we thought RF50 would probably have to move. And perhaps WJZY/WMYT may have to move from 47 and 39 also, whenever that is decided. Remains to be...

Super Bowl definitely looked better on WHNS and WJZY rather than Charter. I wonder if Charter gets OTA feed or fiber. Perhaps the way they split the signal from the subchannels.

But surprised...

Well they need more power on Paris Mountain. .025kw is way too weak. Many other translators are more powerful than that.
