The plug probably won't be pulled until the channel moves are done in this area. It sounded from that reply from WEAO that it won't be for 2 years (there are 10 repack phases over 3 years)

Depends on how the channel moves are coordinated with the surrounding markets. I would expect all the LP's/translators to be forced off as the repack will be enough of a nightmare without having to...

Not necessarily, they could be repacked to another channel. But knowing how cheap the owners of W16DO/WAOH are I would be shocked if they didn't sell off. Both stations are Class A.

WOIO's...

When WKYC was on RF2 it would be completely unwatchable when there was a thunderstorm within 50 miles.

I assume the cable companies would have some type of direct feed and not depend on OTA...

Very good news. Was worried that they might sell one or both stations.

Also if WEAO is going to 24 that implies that someone in Akron is staying on 23, either WVPX, or WVPX channel-sharing (with likely co-located WDLI), or WVPX sells and one of the two religious...

Could a Cleveland low power go on 18?

Then 15-16-17-19-20 for WEWS-WQHS-WKYC-WVIZ-WBNX ?

EDIT: Just remembered that WVIZ's antenna is stacked on top of WKYC's on the same tower. Is there any...

WEWS-WQHS-WKYC-WBNX-WVIZ could be bunched together on 15-19, assuming WQHS stays on the air. A couple stations in Ontario might need to be moved.

Can WTAE be adjacent to WNEO? Would think they...

Interesting article on channel sharing and stat-mux encoders (though its a couple years old)

They tested up to 3(!) HD's on a single stream, as well as 2HDs and up to 4SDs.

It does 960x720p (vs typical 1280x720p) - that would be one way to save bandwidth on WUAB :)

Wonder why they don't give the price :)

I would imagine Univision uses the same encoder for all their markets where they do 2 1080i + 2 480i.

I don't believe 720i is an ATSC supported format. I hope they don't drop CBS to 720p.

This article claims this encoder can do 2 1080i's and 4 SD's on one RF channel (which is more than WOIO/WUAB with all their subs) with what they claim are good results.

Good point. Do you think MyNet is long for this world? (since it is owned by Fox and we know they made over $300M presumably selling their NYC/LA/Chicago/etc. MyNet duopoly stations)
