I will probably stick with Jimmy Swaggart on 55.3. And sometimes watch WGGS-16, which also has new Jim Bakker show. Plus I can't get that 28 channel anyway.

The HD signal was back up, but they appeared to be at reduced power. Signal would drop in and out. Perhaps there is a technical problem, or maybe they are working on it.

The LG 55 inch EC9300 OLED has been on sale recently for around $1500 and $1999 from certain vendors. Still pricey, for the basic 1080p version, but not as expensive as the 4K model.
