That's not what I said. What I said is that it doesn't work as long as WPCW is on 11. (Or WBKB, by the same logic.)

That being said, there are two contradictory things I want to point out. ...

CFPL and WOIO are co-channel today. By definition, if both are left alone, no new interference is created between them, thus current coverage and population is preserved.

Even if WPCW and CFPL,...

WOIO and CFPL are an existing pair. WPCW and CFPL are not. There must be some number of cells which collectively account for 0.5% new interference in one direction or the other (or both) when both...

Okay, that's pretty cool. However, you have CFPL co-channel with WPCW, an impermissible relationship. The raw files I used to create the Repack Checker are here, the November 2015 files, if they're...
