Looks like a fixed-rate encoder. Similar to what WOIO/WUAB use. A variable/statmux would jump all over the place.

WKYC's weather radar varies from under 1MB/sec (mainly when they are showing the...

Do you know if those are fixed rates? No wonder they look so bad. The artifacting is obvious even on a smaller-screen TV.

Even WKYC's weather radar has a higher...

Hmmm, 4.1 Mbps null packets (I don't think WVPX has mobile DTV, according to RabbitEars only WKYC does). Sure looks like they are making room for one or both of the displaced religious stations' main...

Just checked them and I totally agree, all of Ion's SD subs look atrocious now. They didn't look this bad yesterday or the day before.

Sounds about right. They have up to 6 months from whenever they get paid (which won't happen for at least a month or two) to pull the plug on 43. They need to hopefully upgrade 19's ancient encoder...

Maybe they are preparing to carry the religious stations that are going off the air and making room for them by stealing bandwidth from the other subs?

I think they have to run crawls every 15 minutes or so at least 30 days before they pull the plug. I doubt they will pull the plug until they get paid (which won't happen for at least another month...

It barely comes in in NW Medina County, and the slightest tropo wipes it out.

Before they signed on I would get WJBK Detroit a lot in the summer so this is what is apparently interfering with them.

Since WAOH didn't indicate any interest in channel sharing in the FCC report (unlike most other stations that went off the air) I read this as Media-Com wanting to unload both stations (but W16DO...

Hope not. Hopefully DTV America buys them (and W16DO) and moves their subs there. They can put the religious networks on WQDI/WEKA :D

Yep. I think they have 3 months from when they get paid (1 or 2 months from now) to sign a channel-sharing agreement or they are toast.

Most likely they end up as cable-only stations or carried on...

They could make a deal with WVPX to just carry their main channel (for each) in SD (to get must-carry) and feed the cable systems directly with an HD feed and the subchannels. Or maybe they could...

Very interesting.

I'm surprised 21 and 23 work in Cleveland with Akron stations adjacent.

Would 16, 25, 26, and 28 be possibilities with somewhat lower power and/or nulls toward the stations in...

Thanks, Trip.

Looks like 16, 21, and 26 have the best chance (if the power was dialed back a little or a directional null was use to protect the stations in question)?

Of course there is RF5 if...

Mostly agree, though I wish WRAP would come on the air and grab COZI, Decades, and Buzzr from those no-signal stations.

WRAP might fit on 26. WQDI and WEKA on 16 and 20 respectively. There is little chance of the DTV America stations interfering with anyone when they basically have no signal, especially WQDI.

In Cleveland:

5 - probably
6 - no, WOUC
7 - WCDN
9,11,13 - maybe
14, 18 - no because of LM in Pittsburgh
16 - maybe
