Wonderful, glad to help. You receive KCAU which I do not, but I'm surprised you see only two channels as I believe they broadcast four.

I switched to cable in the early 90's for baseball and to...

2.5 and 2.6 are SDPB radio and classical music from their HD 2 channel. That's good for me as I have no HD radio. I do listen to 88.1 but believe HD 2 differs.

Compared to me, you're missing channels from the south. Channel 2.[1-6] is Vermillion and identical to 23.[1-6]. Channels 4.[1-3] and 14.[1-3] are from Sioux City. I really like getting Sioux City...

Good, there's nothing wrong with simple. I made mine with 1/4" aluminum tubing as I didn't fancy the bending. I flattened the ends and joined them with a bolt at the proper angles.

Be aware, the...

I spent about $12 for the Grey-Hoverman antenna I mentioned. If I move it outside I can fairly frequently receive Omaha. It really works well.

While I agree markets are largely the same, there...

However, if you're somewhat handy you can make your own. I made a single-bay Gray Hoverman and...

RetroTV on 42

RetroTV appears to broadcasting on channel 42. I noticed it on channel 44 Sunday but that lasted but one day. Monday it changed to 42 and remains there today.

On another front ... I contacted...

KWSD 36.2 broadcasting test pattern.

I was surprised to see 36.2 scanned in Monday night. KWSD is broadcasting a test pattern only. My guess is they are trying to technically satisfy that they're broadcasting.

Perhaps I'm wrong and...

To explain, if I change to a KELO...

No, and I just scanned. I've not received KCPO for most of 2016. The only analog channel I receive is 33 and that's very seldom.

I'm running out of theories here. Your report indicates the problem is KMEG, not Sinclair. That gets me back to my original post where KMEG replied they don't air captions on 14.3 as those programs...

That seems to indicate the problem is Sinclair. I assume the FCC is aware of this.

Tenspeed also reported he sees captioning on 14.2. I don't know why I thought it was lacking but for "Through...

I'm still confused. Do we know whether "Decades" and "Comet" provide captioning to KMEG? Do Decades and Comet have common ownership? Does Sinclair have ownership of either?

Decades KMEG does...

How do you know Decades is including captioning. If that's the case, KMEG chooses to not air captioning for "The Twilight Zone" but does for "Decades." Actually, it's probably Sinclair that makes...

I thought so. It seems even more unlikely as we're talking networkS. 14.2 is Decades while 14.3 is Comet. But perhaps they're different networks of the same group.

I mailed the station with a...

KMEG and captioning on 14.[2-3]?

KMEG isn't including captioning on channels 14.[2-3]. They're aware of the situation and defend it.

Aren't all DTV channels required to provide captioning with their signal?

An update ... Pioneer has corrected their time on channels 20.[1-4]. It took a long time, but all's well that ends well.
